Now the Pedant is really revolting!

I think the UK media are getting carried away with the imminent D-Day commemorations and the presence of the US President in our country.

I just heard on TV that “veterans, including a 101 year old, will be visiting the beaches in Normandy with the Queen and President Trump, where they fought 75 years ago.”

I can quite believe that Her Majesty sneaked out of the palace and crossed the Channel for a sneaky pot-shot at the nasty Germans, but I cannot believe that of Mr. Trump.

I understand that the President has conveniently managed to avoid any military service whatsoever, quite unlike Her Majesty.

One thought on “Now the Pedant is really revolting!”

  1. Well yeah, Dear Leader managed to dodge Vietnam because he had “bone spurs”, BUT he’s more than making up for it now by being a real tough guy when it comes to putting children in cages and talking nasty about Iran. Trump–a genuine hero, who doesn’t even know the words to our national anthem. (Personally I wish it were “America the Beautiful” instead of the “Star-Spangled Banner”, but Trump doesn’t know the words to that one, either, in both cases verified by films of his lips sort of moving). It is to weep.
