MSNBC host Joe Scarborough actually agreed with President Donald Trump on throwing a military parade but said it should pay special tribute to Vietnam veterans and be a toned down event.
“It might be a great idea for Donald Trump to stand there and salute all the men and the women that went to Vietnam and served in Vietnam,” Scarborough said. “All those family members of the 58,000 american who is died in Vietnam. and actually give those men and women a parade, many of whom were spit at and attacked when they came home from service.”
Scarborough also said it would be a good idea to highlight the service of the men and women who have fought in the Middle East and to avoid showcasing military hardware.
“How about all the men and women that had served so proudly as Mike said for 17 years nonstop? In Iraq and Afghanistan. Many who still struggle every single day with what they saw over there and how they readjust to society,” he concluded. “I think a parade, without military hardware as Lindsey Graham said, to say thank you to those who have given so much over the past 50 years. I think that might be a good alternative.”
