David Frum, a one-time speechwriter for President George W. Bush, voiced astonishment in a series of tweets, writing, “It’s incredible that a president would travel to France for this significant anniversary ― and then remain in his hotel room watching TV rather than pay in person his respects to the Americans who gave their lives in France for the victory gained 100 years ago tomorrow.”…
Kelly Magsamen, a former high-ranking Pentagon official, borrowed one of Trump’s derisive phrasing. saying he displayed “real low energy” by “not bothering” to head out in the rain.
“Somehow everyone else was able to do so today,” she tweeted.
Former Macron campaign adviser Francois Heisbourg also knocked Trump, posting a photo of a cyclist pedaling through a wet street corner in Paris.
“Nothing a cyclist can’t handle, let alone a presidential [helicopter],” he wrote.
