Trump went there for one reason and one reason only: to meet with Putin on Veteran's Day.

No, ZAR ~ it wasn't about getting his feet wet. He was sending a message.

This is how a POS like Trump says he has more important things to do with his time.

Trumplethinskin didn't want to do it because he didn't want another one of his stupid umbrella failures memes out there... it might undermine his projection of tremendous competency... because he is most competent world leader in history.

"President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didn't bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow -- & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn't stop them & it shouldn't have stopped an American president," wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam War.

The internet lit up Saturday and Sunday with images of other world leaders braving gray skies to lay wreaths, unveil plaques, and pay their respects at memorial and cemeteries outside of Paris during a weekend to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel lay a floral wreath on Saturday afternoon at Compiègne, the site where the agreement that stopped World War I was signed. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the World War I battlefield, Vimy Ridge, where he greeted Canadian veterans.

We're talking about President Bone Spur here. He thinks all those soldiers were suckers for risking and sometimes giving their lives. Why would he honor someone he thinks is a sucker?
