Word has leaked out of the Capitol that President Donald Trump really wants a full-scale military parade, and that he’s working with top officials at the Pentagon to make his dream a reality. But while Trump is excited about it, late-night comedians are a little concerned.
According to officials, Trump was inspired by the Bastille Day parade in France, but that’s not the comparisons TV personalities and many more Americans are making. Instead, they’re seeing images of military parades in the Soviet Union, China, North Korea and even WWII-era German.
Both Seth Meyers and James Corden saw the “dick” in what they perceive as our aspiring dictator, while Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah agreed that America doesn’t need to throw a parade to show off its military might.
