Donald Trump’s in Paris to ‘celebrate’ the end of WW1 and these are the only replies you need
Donald Trump has arrived in Paris to join fellow world leaders for Remembrance Day and the first world war commemorations.
Here’s what the so-called president had to say about it.
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?

Christ this man is a fuckwit. It’s not a celebration, you sleazy, lying prick. It’s the solemn remembrance of 16 million dead. https://t.co/nOWxawJT70

One better way to celebrate the end of WW1: Learn lessons from it. WWI was an unnecessary war resulting from nationalism, miscalculation and leaders who charged ahead without understanding what they were getting into. Seems like there might be lessons for you, Mr. President. https://t.co/lnlruajedE
