Happy birthday to U.S. ARMY and our soldiers. Thank you for your bravery, sacrifices, & dedication. Proud to be your Commander-in-Chief!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2017
I didn't realize the Army has a birthday, but now I suppose it does. It's the only mention of birthday in Trump's Twitter feed.
I recall a news item that spread across the political sites that I read about Obama instructing his supporters not to send him birthday cards or well wishes, rather, send cash donations to DNC.
But looking through search results comes up empty. I'm phrasing the inquiries incorrectly.
It turns out the occasion was Michelle Obama's birthday, not Barack Obama's birthday, where political operatives made that request.
And thinking back now, there was a request made to Obama supporters by Obama, or put another way, there was directive from on high, to send cash to DNC instead of spending money to celebrate their own birthdays.
How selfish to celebrate one's own birthday when Party is everything.
And how appalled we all were that even birthdays had been politicized. A new low from our point of view. While certain a few supporters followed this instruction.
Compare and contrast. American media certainly won't.
