Try to Come Up With a More Fitting Word than "Asshole."

Today is Memorial Day in America, the day each year when the people of the United States are supposed to venerate the country's war dead. As in people who actually went to war and died in service to their country.

So, how did Donald Trump show his reverence for those who went in harm's way, something he went to extraordinary lengths to dodge when it was his turn? Here's how:

Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18 years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

Nice, yeah nice. You total asshole.

Happy? What meaning does he ascribe to the word "memorial"? Do his admirers and supporters get it? Or have they become so carried away by team spirit that nothing can get through to them? (Of course, I maybe the one who's off on this one; I've always thought it weird when people clap after a eulogy or after somebody gives a speech at a Remembrance Day observance.)

I guess "Thanks for your service!" is too ad nauseam for our illustrious current President
...although I can hardly fault him for that
On the other hand, his "offering" is hardly an improvement over even the most superfluous trendy social-engineered cliche fare.
