Expect Fireworks

This morning.

Washington DC.

Thousands are gathering  in the US capital to celebrate the birth of America with a parade which this year will feature Army tanks, a flyover of military jets, Air Force One and fireworks.

Via USA Today:

The centerpiece? A speech from President Donald Trump — the first time in decades that a president has addressed the crowd.

But protests are expected and Trump is facing criticisms over the costs of the event and has been accused of injecting politics into a traditionally nonpartisan event. This year’s celebration won’t just attract tourists, Washington, D.C., residents and families looking to observe the holiday.

Both protesters and supporters of the president are descending to the heart of the nation’s capital – potentially putting the patriotic holiday on a collision course for partisan fights.

    Good job that “Independence Day” was released during the Reagan/Bush/Clinton era, if it was released today, we’d be rooting for the fuppin aliens.

    “Both protesters and supporters of the president….”
    So only two protesters then?
