  1. Thedump's KKKristofascist ego trip. (:-( Stay tuned for non-stop Hatch Act violations by WH crime syndicate! (:-(

  2. Wow. Imagine that, liberals worried about cost. Lol. Don’t let it be a section 8 housing, ebt, or Medicaid parade with because you’ll see them lined up.

  3. $2.5 million could fix the plumbing of those affected in Flint, MI. It could also help our homeless population, which includes some veterans.

  4. Democratic Congress are offended by the very thought of Trump existing. Which of course means he's the perfect man for America because Democratic Congress is the furthest away from American values it can possibly be.

  5. Oh the NEGATIVE media spin on everything and anything Trump does, the "F" ing news media sucks, to put it plainly!

  6. Hmmm..this seems a better way of spending money when you compare it to literally giving away over 5 billion dollars to criminals.

  7. Our country is the world's leading power and that's why my father made these arrangements. The world must see the greatness of the United States of America

  8. Why didn't NBC have a story titled "President Obama facing backlash after sending BILLIONS of dollars in cash to the #1 state sponsor of terrorism" ?

  9. I see the Communist Propaanda is hard at work. DemonKKKrats are evil, The Industrial Fake News Network is the Enemy of America. Trump 2020, For All The People . . .

  10. The deplorables are getting their moment to shine. Please excuse the other 200 million of us who went to school, learned to read, and studied history. They are making complete fools of themselves while we watch in disgust.

  11. As someone who DOES NOT like Donald Trump as a person, and who HATES all 4 "mainstream" parties in the US (Republican, Democrat, Green, and Libertarian), I fully support the POTUS and fully enjoy my tax dollars being spent to celebrate the founding of what is currently the greatest nation to ever exist.

  12. this won't be a celebration…
    it will be a political campaign rally…
    designed to bolster Cadet Spanky McBonespurs reelection…
    all paid for by the American tax payer…

  13. Democrats: " we should give illegal aliens free health care which would cost billions" media: silence
    Trump: "Let's have a July 4th parade"
    Media: "That costs too much!"

  14. tRump is evil and he should have been impeached 2 years ago! Dont go to his dog and pony show… its a trump boycott.

  15. Vip tickets to donors who already high tailed it outta d.c. and Congress is on recess sad thing he didn’t give tickets to veterans but to his staff aides got 10 tickets each

  16. Only a Weak Nation shows their military arms to proof to the world that they are a Superpower ….. This proofs again that Donald Trump doesn't know history

  17. To be fair, a man who has wasted $120,000,000 – so far – of Taxpayers’ Money just to pay for his own golfing trips to his own hotel (which I fully expect all his supporters to rush in here now to angrily, loudly defend the cost of – staying focused on this specific charge – because they’ll explain how blowing more than One Hundred Million Dollars of public money just to go golfing, when there are a vast range of public programmes for everything for widow payments to special needs assistants for schools to veteran housing supports to, Jesus, you name it) can hardly be expected to be concerned at the cost of adding tanks to turn a celebration of culture into a jingoistic willy-waving display of military stuff just so that Putin and Lil Kim can see that he has loud toys too, can he?

  18. You gotta be interested to watch American military march at least for once. It doesn’t host very often – might be the only chance in our lifetime. Plus, people in many other countries have already seen them first, and they didn’t even pay taxes.

  19. Democrats giveaways trillions to illegal aliens, they don’t want to celebrate the American independence. They are obviously anti-American.

  20. Watch out….
    …. The Dumal Tramp……….
    Very Shiri you will be filled with Unlimited.
    Next target you are the Dunol tramp you next.

  21. FAKE NEWS Trump is not facing anything. We are proud of our President and our Arm Forces. Keep spreading your hate for America and soon nobody will watch your channel.

  22. Again, No one asks how much it cost for fireworks in every city. No one asks how much the New Years Celebrations cost in New York City or else where. No one asks how much it cost for a wedding/birthday party. If Pres Trump throws a 4th of July party for the USA then we should all enjoy it and stop SLAMMING HIM FOR SHOWING APPRECIATION FOR ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO MADE THIS COUNTRY GREAT AND HOW LUCKY WE ALL ARE!

  23. "Backlash" from those that literally just said in a debate that they want the USA to pay for healthcare and college for people here illegally……. ohhhhh the level of monetary ignorance in these pundidiots..

  24. I don’t really care if the want to show military gear, but its not something we can afford at this time.

  25. We love you Mr President Trump, We appreciate everything you do for this great Country. You are the best President ever! And to those angry, haters from the Media, I say: Get a life! No one cares about your stupid negative comments, Trump will win again in 2020 and you better get over it. Get a dog so you can pet in 2020 you are going to need it.
    Hahahahaha…….I love it! Latinos for Trump! Te queremos mucho Mr Trump!

  26. Backlash from who? Communists and liberals! You guys living in a bubble that's why it's seems like a backlash.

  27. Typically we don't do parades with military displays, not cost effective.

    But,
    this is likely what we won't see in future events. So its worth checking out.

  28. Happy Independence Day my fellow Americans!

    I'm an LEGAL Immigrant who spent over half a decade to become a citizen and love this country! I've also #walkaway since the Democratic party has gone completely insane.

  29. A few tanks on display? Well on Friday trump will tweet that it was the MOST BIGGEST military parade in the world. His sheep will believe it. By the way trump losers, it is only Air Force 1 if the president is on it. So it is a fly over by a 747. WOW!!

  30. Compared to Tax Payers cost of illegal immigration the Parade is Free! There is commonly a parade it DC for July 4 Independence Day and the $750,000 fireworks were donated. Thank you Mr President for being the greatest Showman President of America and celebrating the Greatest Nation on Earth Hugely!! Thank you Service People past and President for preserving the right of Americans to protest safely. Lefties please go to China, Saudi, Mexico, Iran, and North Korea to organize protests for human rights!!!

  31. Happy 4th of July USA and President Trump. Don’t let any of the crazy left liberal detractors bother you. You’re a patriot and the best president we’ve ever had! MAGA! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸💪🏼

  32. It's always something with leftist loons! You all won't be happy until you live like they do in China!

  33. Great job president Donald J. Trump. The media completely distorted the president patriotism. Shame on the media. The president just saluted the law enforcement branches. The media is full of crap

  34. Yet you don't care how much the annual fireworks and security cost, just how much he spends on tanks and planes, you sick leftist Anti-Americans. I'd much rather have my tax dollar spent celebrating America than supporting illegals to cross our border and invade our country to ensure the democrat vote.

  35. It’s not Comcast , Time Warner, Disney, National Amusements, Warner Bros if it’s useless anti Republican/Trump media

  36. how much did it cost for Congress still going on today pay for the investigation of the United States President how much did that cost?

  37. how much money did Beyonce get in all the rest of the entertainers that Obama had paid them their fourth of July celebrations how much money did they get I bet it was more than this I guarantee it was more than this Obama spent more than this going to India the Taj Mahal what are you talkin about

  38. achieved done beautifully and Fourth of July celebration was one of America's Finest to be proud of your country is nothing to be ashamed about this wasn't about only the president this was about the American people we know the Democrats could care less about the American people but at least this president gave us the day there was only a few planes and helicopters in two lousy tanks that was it it wasn't a big shebang like you all made it out to be your Liars but you didn't question the 25 million Congress spent on a fake investigation you wasn't worried about that money was you you wasn't worried about that going to Parks and Recreation was you???????

  39. Watching your morning show on 7/5, you people are A**holes. Do you ever have a positive or uplifting thought in your heads. If i followed your channel I'd be dead by now just from your negative reinforcement.

  40. NBC- You are part of the lack of ethics in journalism that is threatening to destroy this nation. Ethics should be a required course for journalism majors. You almost make me ashamed to be an American.

  41. It wasn't showing military muscle it was a show of American Pride I don't know about anybody else but I'm curious to see what our tanks look like. I love America I think the parade and Celebration that President Trump put on was fantastic I doubt that the Democrats bitched when President Kennedy rolled his tanks down his Parade route. If you people hate America so much unlike the pride that the Republicans have in America then please take your social libtard rear ends and go somewhere else!!

  42. What happened to "I won't have time for golf?" Anyone who would abide such a shameless pathological liar would apparently embrace a self-avowed predator groping and pawing his wife and daughters, and choose such a deplorable creature to lead this country. Go figger. America's future is in the hands of fringe morons. Trump and Russia are counting on you…

  43. Cost for this celebration is a drop in the bucket compared to the costs of all the bloated government programs droning on over decades…

  44. Screw the “backlash”. I’m proud to be American AND proud of our military.
    Dems waste more money on alcohol and travel. Sooo sick of them.
    Military “politicized”? How stupid. Those dudes are happy to be there and proud to serve.

  45. We all ought to thank God for President Donald j Trump you know all those left wing liberals are!!!! They should be!!!
