Trump orders military flyovers to 'honor' health care workers; sadly, they won't be dropping PPE

2 min read

Hey, Donald Trump is going to be sending the Blue Angels out to do flyovers in honor of doctors and nurses! Mere weeks after sending the Angel of Death! Wow, he really does respond quickly.

The Washington Post:

The Pentagon is planning a multicity tour of the U.S. military’s top flight demonstration teams to “champion national unity” amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to senior U.S. officials and a memo obtained by The Washington Post.
The Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds, the demonstration squadrons for the Navy and Air Force, will fly over some cities together and others separately, according to the memo. The flyovers will take place in the next several weeks “to thank first responders, essential personnel, and military service members as we collectively battle the spread of COVID-19.”
President Trump announced the mission, named Operation America Strong, after it was reported by The Post on Wednesday afternoon. He said that the mission was “the idea of our great military men and women,” and will recognize health-care workers.

Health care workers are up to their eyebrows in expectorated death globules. I doubt they have the time — or any inclination — to stand outside watching thousands of dollars evaporate into the air instead of being spent on PPE and COVID-19 tests.

But, hey, Trump apparently thinks this will boost morale: “This is a tribute to them, to our warriors because they’re equal warriors to those incredible pilots and all of the fighters that we have for the more traditional fights that we win,” Trump said.

Honestly, if our addlepated phlegm-bot wants to distract us with nonsense, he should just go ahead and make his horse a consul. Why these half-measures?

Say, maybe after all this is over we can have a parade, too. I’ll get started on my Mad Max costume. My fire-spewing death-buggy might need a tune-up, too.

Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear Fcking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its boffo sequels Dear Prsident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
