On Sunday morning, Donald Trump, seemingly out of nowhere, tweeted a sort of “Save the Date” for a big celebration in D.C.
On July 4th.
And you’ll never guess what it’s going to celebrate:
“A Salute to America”
Ya don’t say.
HOLD THE DATE! We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!

People were puzzled as to why Trump thought this was a new idea, and the mockery came fast:
HOLD THE DATE! ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Hold the date.
Did you seriously just ask the American to “hold the date”?
On July 4th?
You should sue whoever dropped you on your head when you were born.

We hate to break this to you BUT, this happens every year in D.C. sans your ridiculous, divisive, racist rhetoric.
The citizens of America
PS. F*** you!

Sounds kind of familiar.
You’re in luck, Mr. President!
Amazing I already have the day off. What are the chances???

“Hold the date?”
Oddly enough, I think a lot of the country is off work that day.

Actually Donald, we already had this holiday…it's called the 4th of July. There has always been a huge celebration in DC. So no, you don't get to claim credit for this either.
