“When we left Trump Tower, Cosell said, ‘I’ve never met anyone luckier to be born rich.’ To this day, Trump recalls Cosell fondly. If he only knew.”

It’s the centennial of New York City’s commemorative parade, so of course the Oval Office Occupant decided he’d try and hijack the event:
This year’s Veterans Day Parade—hosted by the United Way Veterans Council—will celebrate its centennial as more than 30,000 people march up Fifth Avenue on Monday, November 11 to honor veterans of the United States military during the annual holiday. While the organizers stress that the parade is a non-partisan and non-political event, President Donald Trump will make history this year as the first sitting president to attend the celebration. The president will not be marching in the parade but he will be giving an opening address at Madison Square Park.
The event will kick off with a traditional opening ceremony at 11 a.m. near Madison Square Park on 24th Street and Fifth Avenue, where Trump is scheduled to make a speech. The ceremony will conclude with a wreath-laying at the Eternal Light Monument inside the park at 12 p.m.
The parade itself is expected to begin shortly after, heading north on Fifth Avenue from West 26th Street to West 46th Street. The route is about 1.2 miles and the parade is expected to wrap up by 3:30 p.m…
The Daily News reports:
… The president arrived in New York City Saturday night and bunkered down in Trump Tower in Midtown, according to a White House pool report…
Last week, a state judge in Manhattan ordered Trump to pay $2 million in damages to nonprofits after funds he raised with the stated purpose of supporting veterans actually went to his presidential campaign.
On Tuesday, Trump is scheduled to speak at the Economic Club of New York before heading back to Washington, D.C., where impeachment proceedings will be in full swing.
I still think it’s even odds his bone spurs will act up and he’ll be a no-show, for fear someone will point out on camera that he’s hiding out on his frantic GOP ‘supporters’ down in D.C. Any bets?
