Now Trump wants a parade

A parade might be informative, as Trump may place on the viewing stand closest to him, those advisors who are in his favor, and those who are not, further away.

He and Putin will hold hands.

I'm assuming Trump wants to wear a uniform full of medals he "earned".

Do you see the skirts on those female soldiers?

Interesting to see what the price tag is for this. Money apparently is no object when propping up the fragile ego of the Orange Man-Child.

"...this might be the most thoroughly Trump moment of his presidency. Not only are we talking about a huge show of pageantry and strength that could test the bounds of practicality and the federal budget, but we've also got Trump upending decades of American political tradition to do so — and undoubtedly drawing the ire of opponents who will allege he's acting like an authoritarian.

...Democrats will make it all about Trump, and it will be hard to argue with them. They'll argue it's a waste and unbecoming of a U.S. president. Trump, meanwhile, will revel in the controversy it causes and the spectacle, insisting he's just promoting the American military and suggesting that people who oppose it oppose the military. It will be one massive troll, complete with tanks and flyovers and marching soldiers.

And it will be thoroughly Trump."

I suppose it is worth seeing once from the sidelines.  After that it is entirely repetitious unless you have a really special dignitary invited that you want to eyeball.  But I'm pretty sure they don't serve beer.  But I was never on the sidelines.  ;)

Just bring in Sgt. Hulka's men for entertainment ........

Trump continues to be unconventional.

I'm a speak softly and carry a big stick proponent, so this makes me a bit uncomfortable.

I agree with this which is why I’m not going to waste my time getting up in arms about it.

But I don’t think this is a sign of authoritarianism. He’s just a person who likes to make a big splash. I’m sure we’ll hear about this being the biggest parade, etc... It reminds me of that clip from the White House lawn of Trump driving the truck. And I’m not mocking him for that, if he likes big noisy trucks that’s cool. This falls in the same realm, ‘ooh, parade, choreography, big trucks, wow, we need that!’

I always think that's got to be painful to maintain for any length of time :)

Looks like the Department of Stupid Ideas is fully staffed in the White House.
