Chuck Schumer Called for Military Parade in 2014

It’s always the same. Every time President Trump says something reportedly preposterous, some Democrat already beat him to it.

Trump’s recent call for a military parade is the most recently example. Inspired by the French Bastille Day celebration, Trump has proposed a military parade to honor our nation’s armed forces.

While opinions on Trump’s proposal on both the left and right have differed, the media’s reaction has been nothing short of hysterical.

The New York Times editorial board, right on cue, came out against Trump’s proposal. Here’s what they wrote:

Mr. Trump’s parade would further militarize America’s image. And it would be expensive, costing millions of dollars and most likely tearing up Washington’s streets. Does that make sense when the Pentagon is complaining that its $700 billion annual budget is inadequate, Congress is cutting vital programs, the State Department is being eviscerated and a Republican tax cut for the wealthy has added billions of dollars to the deficit?

That’s pretty rich! The Times now caring deficit spending? Please! This was just another opportunity to knock Trump.

Of course, nobody from the New York Times blasted Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer when he made a similar call in 2014. Take a look:

Our country has a long history of military parades, dating back to the 19th century. No less than 6 military parades were held in America in the 20th century.

So why are the writers at the Times so irate now? What protocol did Trump break by proposing the same kind of parade that Schumer proposed nearly three years ago?

The answer, of course, is nothing. This is yet another example of the media hammering Trump for something they let the Democrats off the hook for. They hypocrisy is infuriating. But it’s nothing we’re not used to by now.
