Even Fox News isn't so sure about this military parade thing

President Trump has reportedly given orders to the Pentagon to prepare a military parade, inspired by the one that dazzled him on Bastille Day during his visit to France. Not everyone is enthusiastic about the idea: "The way to show our service members and veterans that we appreciate their service is to use the parade money to fund their health care and other services they need," Del. Eleanor H. Norton (D-District of Columbia) tweeted. Even military enthusiasts are grumbling.

The typically Trump-friendly Fox News hosts don't seem so thrilled, either. After a short segment on Trump's proposal, Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade muttered: "I don't know, it seems like a waste of money."

The Week's Peter Weber agrees. Read why he thinks Trump should personally foot the bill if he wants his parade here.
