If there’s anybody who has no f***ing thought what’s occurring proper now, it’s the person who’s presupposed to be our commander in chief.

Last week, Donald Trump introduced that he would ship a graduation speech to the graduating class on the U.S. Military Academy at West Point–a transfer that can reportedly pressure 1,000 cadets to return a campus that closed down final month because of the coronavirus.

“I’m doing [the commencement speech] at West Point, which I look forward to. I did it last year at Air Force. I did it in Annapolis. I did it at the Coast Guard Academy and I’m doing it at West Point,” Trump mentioned throughout a press convention final week. “And I assume … they’ll have [social] distancing. They’ll have some big distance, so it’ll look very different than it ever looked.”

The Cheeto In Chief introduced this resolution as Mike Pence ready to talk on the Air Force Academy commencement ceremony in Colorado final week. Sources instructed the Times that Trump’s impromptu announcement got here as a shock, since organizers had but to finalize the ceremony plans.

There had been reportedly talks about rescheduling the commencement from late May to mid-June, however these plans weren’t accomplished on the time Trumpito confirmed his June 13 speech.

“He’s the commander in chief, that’s his call,” Sue Fulton, a West Point graduate and former chairwoman of the academy’s Board of Visitors, mentioned to the Times. “Cadets are certainly excited about the opportunity to have something like the classic graduation, standing together, flinging their hats in the air. But everyone is leery about bringing 1,000 cadets into the New York metropolitan area for a ceremony … It’s definitely a risk.”

Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt instructed the Times {that a} handful of cadets together with roughly 30 employees members have examined optimistic for coronavirus since leaving campus final month.
