Trump Makes Memorial Day All About Himself, Attacking the Judges in His Cases as ‘Human Scum’

For as long as Donald Trump has been a public figure, he has been known as a compulsive self-promoter. There is virtually no subject that he won’t hijack as an opportunity to shamelessly exalt himself or viciously malign his foes. This is especially notable on holidays when most of the American people are united in paying tribute to people or events that have contributed to them or their country. That includes everything from Independence Day to Mother’s Day.

Donald Trump, Saving Cadet Bone Spurs

One of the most revered days of remembrance is Memorial Day. It’s a day when Americans honor those who gave everything for the preservation of the gifts of freedom and democracy that are sometimes taken for granted. But true to form, Trump can be relied on to tarnish these tributes in favor of exploiting the occasion to denigrate others. It’s particularly loathsome considering his long held disrespect for the military and those who serve.

On this Memorial Day, Trump behaved exactly as one might expect. He diminished the service of patriots in order to launch attacks on his perceived personal enemies. In a comment posted to his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump hammered out a long, tormented rant that is typical of a malignant narcissist who is obsessed only with his own problems.

It’s predictable that Trump would begin his rancid tirade by wishing the cult followers who patronize his posts a “Happy Memorial Day,” when the day is not an occasion for happiness, but is a day of solemn remembrance for the losses suffered by the sacrifices of patriots. He then continues to extend his wretched wishes to “the Human Scum that is working so hard to destroy our Once Great Country.” Such inspirational holiday thoughts from someone who wants to represent the “Scum” …er… people of the nation.

However, the rest of Trump’s rant doesn’t mention a single person who is supposedly destroying the country, a country that he doesn’t regard as great. It is just an extended tantrum aimed solely at the judges presiding over some of his civil and criminal cases. Those judges, who serve the cause of law and order, are who he believes are the destroyers of America. He assaults them as…

  • The “Trump Hating Federal Judge in New York [Lewis Kaplan] that…awarded a woman [E. Jean Carroll]…91 MILLION DOLLARS.”
  • “Arthur Engoron, the N.Y. State Wacko Judge who fined me almost 500 Million Dollars.”
  • And “Now for [Judge Juan] Merchan!”

That’s Trump’s Memorial Day message. It is wholly devoted to his own personal legal tribulations. He doesn’t mention fallen American soldiers once. And while that is reprehensible, it isn’t surprising.

After all, it was Trump who insulted the late Sen. John McCain for having been captured and enduring a Vietnamese POW camp for seven years; who ripped off his phony veterans charity to enrich himself; and who dodged the draft by getting five fake deferments for alleged bone spurs, while whining that his vulnerability to sexually transmitted diseases was his own personal Vietnam.

For some context, the Daily Show helpfully put together some examples of how Trump really feels about the troops and this holiday…
