Per CNN: Pentagon postpones Trump's military parade

"The Department of Defense and White House have been planning a parade to honor America's military veterans and commemorate the centennial of World War I," Defense Department spokesman Col. Rob Manning said Thursday in a statement Thursday. "We originally targeted November 10, 2018 for this event but have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019."

15. No reason for Puty to visit Washington now.

Dotard's photo op just got shoved into 2019.

Let's hope this is the first of many "postponements" by the Pentagon. With any luck, they can push this ridiculous parade off until it's just a fond dream of the long-gone dotard.

16. Ya beat me to it........but yeeehaaaaa.......

Moments ago we got the news: Donald Trump's military parade has been canceled.

We'll learn more in the coming days about what the final straw was, but we know this: our pressure worked. We pushed tens of thousands of petitions, calls and letters to Congress from veterans and military families urging them to stop this international embarrassment.

And they felt your pressure. We stopped it! We did it! What a collective effort!

27. My guess is the latest and mushrooming cost estimate made republicans shit.

The last thing republicans want is a $92m+ Parade being put on four days after voters go to the polls, with news feeds for the prior month plus being filled with how much the parade will cost. I am sure that Lying Ryan and Hurdle Turtle came pleading to the Orange Asshole after they saw the latest cost estimate.

They only say they are “exploring options” in 2019. Hoping that none are found. tRumpolini will be far too busy fighting off various legal proceedings against him to worry about his parade anyway.
