Trump's Fourth of July Speech

Open thread.

Couple of good tweets to start:





Bonus: A friend sent this along.



Take their Virtue Signals and make them into villainy signals. Which they are. No one should infect a child with their own obsessive madness and then run to twitter to collect hosennas.

The Washington Times notes that Trump's speech was not, get this, what leftists shrieked it would be:

Naysayers, critics, political opponents and Democrats and most mainstream media talking heads predicted President Donald Trumpís Fourth of July speech would go over like a campaign rally, filled with self-congratulatory platform-type talk and grandiose -- well, grandstanding.

They were wrong.

And even some of the normal naysayers are admitting as such.

"Trump made his critics look small during his 'Salute to America,'" ran one Washington Post headline, post-speech.

From The Hill: "Trump avoids politics -- but not the rain -- at 'Salute to America' event."

From CNN: "Trumpís July 4th speech heavy on history and military praise."

As it should be.

...

From PBC NewsHour: "In July 4th speech, Trump explains why he thinks America is great," a headline subtly saying, hey -- the president stuck pretty much with traditional Independence Day celebratory tones.

Here's AFP, as it appears on Yahoo:

Trump celebrates US might, avoids politics in rousing July 4 speech


President Donald Trump sang the praises of the US military and American heroes of the past two and a half centuries Thursday, skirting politics in a rousing Independence Day speech in Washington.

"What a great country," Trump exclaimed in an address saturated with patriotism and exceptionalism, after critics accused him of hijacking the annual celebration.

"For Americans, nothing is impossible," he said.

Below, a clip, and the complete speech.
