The Daily Combover - May 29, 2017

Happy Memorial Day! Whether you celebrate Memorial Day, Remembrance Day, Anzac Day, or Armistice Day the meaning is the same. The day commemorates the fallen soldiers who died to protect your nation.

This is the 47th Memorial Day celebration in the United States which follows a little over a century of a similar holiday known as Decoration Day. As is tradition, the President gives a Memorial Day speech to honor the troops -- those currently or formerly engaged in wartime and peacetime activities.

This particular Memorial Day, the President's speech had a glaring omission. Three days prior, a Nazi stabbed several people to death on a train, killing two men that tried to interfere with him as he verbally abused some young Muslim women on the train. One of the dead was a 53-year old decorated army veteran, Ricky John Best, and the other was a 23-year old graduate student, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche.

For three days, Trump was silent. And yes, he was traveling in the air through a portion of that time but as Tony Posnanski pointed out:
The media backlash forced the White House to act. Official @potus Tweeter, Dan Scavino, wrote the following this morning:
And the media went along with it and said that Trump finally wrote the Tweet. Here at the Daily Combover, we know better. We know the Fontange Fuhrer is incapable of goodness and compassion. We don't conveniently forget that Trump's former golf caddie, Dan Scavino, is the @potus Tweeter. We also don't see a single message from Trump's official handle, @realdonaldtrump, talking about the latest victims of Nazi terrorism. Instead he gave us a trio of generic Memorial Day tweets:


Don't fall for the lies.

Catch you on the flip side.
