Donald Trump has cancelled a trip to a US military cemetery in France, claiming the weather is too bad. The US President called off his visit to the Belleau Wood battlefield and cemetery east of Paris because of 'scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,' the White House said.

I'd jump at any chance to visit Belleau Wood.

I helped plan all of President Obama's trips for 8 years. There is always a rain option. Always.

Which is probably why he didn't go. We all know what happens when a being of the underworld steps on consecrated ground.

That is funny as he missed out on the Vietnam war as well. Do we see a trend here? Once a coward always a coward.

Maybe Putin told trampy that he is the wicked witch of the west and he is afraid of water now. Have you seen him drink water?

I can't imagine any of our recent former presidents skipping something like this, even if it meant having to get there by motorcade.

Perhaps, while the rest of the US delegation is out at the American cemetery, this will give him the perfect opportunity to meet with Putin without having any of his people interfering or listening in on what they're taking about and agreeing to.

I for one am glad he didn't go there. It's a beautiful sacred place where are departed troops are buried and fortunately since he didn't want to get his hair wet, The cemetery will not be dishonored with his presence.

Winston Churchill's grandson rips Trump for canceling World War I cemetery visit over poor weather
mic.com

Nicholas Soames, grandson of Winston Churchill and a former member of British Parliament, slammed President Donald Trump for skipping a cemetery visit during a World War I commemoration in France because of inclement weather.

"They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate [Trump] couldn't even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen,"

Soames tweeted Saturday, adding that the president is "not fit" to represent the United States.


Low energy Trump couldn't carry Winston Churchill's jockstrap.

Nulli, I'm worried about you. There's no rational explanation for defiling every thread with your bitterness about the libbies.

Deep down, you must be covering for a painful experience. Did a liberal hurt you in some way? Was it a woman? Somebody you had given your heart and soul to, and she turned out to be a phony? Maybe you got fired by a liberal. Is that it? Losing a job can be quite a blow to your ego.

I hope you're able to come to terms with the demons that are tormenting you so.

Trump is not familiar with the correct usage of an umbrella or rain jacket or hat or just standing in the rain like a man.

"He's a professional malcontents literally on the payroll of somebody who seeks to sow Discord in America."

That sounds a lot more ominous than it is if "somebody" thinks they're going to sow discord in all of America by posting on an anonymous blog that has about 20 active posters on a good day.

What a sad little man trump is. He can not even take a moment to remember our dead.
Can't wait to hear his supporters babble on again about how he supports our military.

Told ya the only reason Trump went was to see Putin. Take a look at this photo:

These types of festivities are usually called remembrances rather that celebrations. We aren't celebrating the dead but remembering and honoring them:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

I am in Paris getting ready to celebrate the end of World War One. Is there anything better to celebrate than the end of a war, in particular that one, which was one of the bloodiest and worst of all time?

"surely not the only place null tries to sow discord."

That's assuming too much, TOR. Some of the things NULL says disgust me but I don't take him any more serious than I do a half dozen or so other posters on this site. Plus, this site just isn't important to attract heavy hitters. What do we have here? About 10 or 15 regulars . . . maybe 20 on a big news day.

Don't let it get under your skin. I've been here for 13 years and I've never seen an opinion change or a world problem solved. For better or worse, this is just a place to vent. Nothing more.

So he basically didn't go because that rats nest on his pumpkin head would have disintegrated. And he'd rather spend the day watching fox news and playing with his phone.

Honestly, as others said, i'm glad this embarassing piece of garbage didn't bother to show up.

Lets also not forget that he rips many people for supposedly disrespecting the troops but can't be bothered to go outside and honor our war dead.
