Donald Trump joined his favorite morning state-sponsored television program Fox and Friends for an exclusive interview this morning and as usual those being paid to exalt and glorify Trump, it was as servile and dutiful as possible.

As Mediaite's Aidan McLaughlin wrote, not a word was spoken about the coronavirus, but there was a lot of fawning and Michael Flynn braggadocio.

Trump's narcissism is so great that when he was asked to give his Mother's Day message to all the moms tuning in, he couldn't and had to be prodded a second time by host Ainsley Earhardt to get him to even say "Happy Mother's Day."

Ainsley asked if he had "a message for all the moms," and Trump started by saying how wonderful Camp David is and then said, "And our military never looked better, it's never been better."

Instead of trying to calm and congratulate mothers around the country, Trump went on to give a rudimentary (if you can call it that) rundown of the military equipment funded during his reign of terror without the slightest thought about Mother's Day.

The U.S. and the world is in the midst of a pandemic, the likes of which we haven't seen for over 100 years and the best message Trump can send to the moms of America who are suffering through this is to brag about a military buildup?

Did the US just declare war against China and Iran?

Mother's Day is a celebration of being a mother, not the glorification of F 35s and F-18s.

After 60 seconds of his moronic promotion of the military, Ainsley came back again trying to get Trump to give a shout out to the moms on Mother's Day. Even then he couldn't really do it.

Can you help us out?
