Liberal Hollywood Implodes Over Trump’s ‘Salute to America’ Event
Actors say the event is out of Trump's 'Nazi playbook.'
Following President Donald Trump’s highly anticipated “Salute to America” event, liberal Hollywood has unsurprisingly freaked out, with some saying it is “all out of his Nazi playbook.”
Actors and the liberal media have slammed Trump's massive event in Washington as a waste of taxpayers money.
Left-wing director Rob Reiner said, “In the face of a humanitarian crisis, that this malignant narcissist would steal taxpayer dollars to stage a partisan display of Autocracy to massage his damaged psyche is nothing short of sociopathic."
Star Wars star Mark Hamill also joined in:
“We’re going to have a great Reelect ME Campaign Rally on the taxpayers dime w/ fireworks provided for ME by big donors-all disguised as a “Salute to America” (& by America-I mean ME) I told you Kim Jon-un & ME fell in love & if this doesn’t impress him-nothing will! +ME=❤️."
As per Trump's Tweet announcing the event:
“HOLD THE DATE! We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!” the president said.
“Our July 4th Salute to America at the Lincoln Memorial is looking to be really big. It will be the show of a lifetime!” Trump said.
“Salute to America” event is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m featuring President Trump, performances by each branch of the military, and military aircraft flyovers.
“We’re gonna have a great Fourth of July in Washington, D.C. It’ll be like no other it’ll be special, and I hope follow a lot of people come, and it’s going to be about this country and it’s a salute to America,” Trump said Monday.
“We’re going to have planes going overhead, the best fighter jets in the world and other planes too. And we’re gonna have some tanks stationed outside.”
M1A1 Abrams tanks are also reprotley to feature in the event.
The Hollywood meltdowns are unprecedented, see below for yourself.

Trump’s big military parade? This is what dictators do.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) July 3, 2019
Trump said, “he is going to round up families, millions of them after 4th of July” he sounds like hitler! And then tanks on parade! All out of his Nazi playbook! I worry for the future of America’s soul! https://t.co/LIuVM7TYYo— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) July 3, 2019

#Trump was bragging about his 4th of July military parade again today. Of course, doubtful he’ll march in it. Bone spurs!! Let’s call his Independence Day celebration what it really is: “The 4th of You Lie!”— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) July 3, 2019
One consequence of Trump ordering a 4th of July heavy armor parade in D.C. is that the controversy will be experienced uncomfortably by many service members.— Sean Astin (@SeanAstin) July 3, 2019
I hope they all remember that they are respected & appreciated by those who oppose the President’s political tactic.
Stephen King said of the event:
“Trump’s big military parade? This is what dictators do,” said author Stephen King of the event.
“Trump said, ‘he is going to round up families, millions of them after 4th of July’ he sounds like Hitler! And then tanks on parade! All out of his Nazi playbook! I worry for the future of America’s soul!” actor John Leguizamo said.
As per The Washington Post:
Several presidents have elected to include tanks in their inaugural parades, among them Roosevelt in 1941, Dwight D. Eisenhower in both 1953 and 1957, and John F. Kennedy in 1961.
MSNBC refused to air President Trump’s “Salute to America” live event for the Fourth of July, while other networks such as Fox News and C-SPAN will go ahead with the broadcast.
Though the network won't stream the event live, a spokesperson said it would assess in real time whether to air clips from the National Mall, featuring a speech from Trump at the Lincoln Memorial, a flyover by Air Force One, military aircraft, and fireworks display, according to Politico.
