1. He could have been at Grant's tomb, and the person would have still been unknown to him.

7. That's the best thing he could have said.

Any spoken word from him would have just been a lie anyway.

9. The asshole actually tweeted 'HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!' this morning.

Yeah, happy your mother's funeral, too, you damned ghoul.

Memorial Day is not a 'happy' holiday, but a time for reflection on the sacrifices that other made in service to our nation. Some even went in your place, Cadet Bonespurs, so just shut the fuck up with your 'happy' bullshit, and have someone read your sinking polls to you.
