Vietnam Draft Dodger Donald Trump Says John McCain Is “Not A War Hero… I Like People That Weren’t Captured”

by 4 years ago

Idiot. That’s the word that best describes Donald Trump and the people who ardently support his is “presidential campaign.” I put that in quotes, because at this point, it’s becoming more evident that Trump might honestly just be in the game for the sole intent of trolling the American public. Huffington Post even moved their coverage of him from the “Political” section to “Entertainment,” for God’s sake.

And if, in fact, Trump’s campaign is legitimate (LOL), well, then the Vietnam draft dodger might’ve just kicked the boulder to start the avalanche that will send it disastrously crashing down the political mountain.

Surrounded by his fellow Republicans for the 2015 Family Leadership Summit in Iowa on Saturday, The Donald said of former 2008 Republican nominee, Senator John McCain, “He’s not a war hero… He’s a war hero because he was captured… I like people that weren’t captured.”

Last time I checked, this is the exact opposite of the right thing to say if you want to earn the GOP’s nomination.

Because he’s such an insufferable son of a bitch, of course Trump then took to Facebook to attempt to further justify his statement about Sen. McCain with this circus statement.

I am not a fan of John McCain because he has done so little for our Veterans and he should know better than anybody what the Veterans need, especially in regards to the VA. He is yet another all talk, no action politician who spends too much time on television and not enough time doing his job and helping the Vets. He is also allowing our military to decrease substantially in size and strength, something which should never be allowed to happen.

Furthermore, he was extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them “crazies”.

These were not “crazies”—these were great American citizens.

I have great respect for all those who serve in our military including those that weren’t captured and are also heroes.

I want to strengthen our military and take care of our Veterans. I want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN especially for those that serve to protect our freedom. I am fighting for our Veterans!

And then this…

Right, Donald, because then someone you’re “not a fan of” would have been a better president than Obama because at least he’s a Republican. Give me a break, man.

“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.” Yeah right, that’s exactly what Trump was thinking when he slithered his way out of being drafted for Vietnam, courtesy of daddy’s wallet.

Trump, who has hinted in recent weeks at a possible run for the White House, told WNYW, the New York Fox affiliate, that he was “lucky” to avoid the draft and remembered the lottery taking place while he was a student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

“I was going to the Wharton School of Finance, and I was watching as they did the draft numbers and I got a very, very high number and those numbers never got up to,” Trump said.

In that conversation Trump did not mention he also received several deferments.

According to his Selective Service records, first obtained by the website The Smoking Gun through a Freedom of Information Act request, Trump received four student deferments between 1964 and 1968 while in college and an additional medical deferment after graduating.

Trump graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 1968. The lottery occurred in December 1969, conflicting with Trump’s recollection of the event.

God he’s delusional. Just like this lady.

Idiot. It’s impossible to overuse that word when talking about Donald Trump.
