I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and guess you’ve never been in that situation. It’s not fun. Nobody looks forward to a funeral. But a friend looks forward to being there for family and loved ones. It happens in the military. I feel honored to go to a military funeral and be there for someone who lost his or her life serving. Do I really want to be there in the same manner as, say, going to a Penguins game? Of course not. But I do look forward to being there to honor the life and memory of someone who paid the ultimate price.
Because trump has so much skill at paying respects, comforting families and telling celebratory stories. I think the nation will be holding its collective breath hoping he doesn’t do/say something egregiously inappropriate, as he is wont to do.
“Hey, so can anyone here tell me what the hell that thousand points of light crap was all about? When I bring it up and ask at my rallies everybody just laughs, so what the heck was he babbling about?”
Feeling honored and looking forward to it are different things and you know it. I was in the military and went to a funeral of a shipmate. I was even asked to speak at the funeral. I was honored but I sure as hell DID NOT look forward to it.
