Donald Trump is a cowardly draft dodger
While the Vietnam War that would claim the lives of some 58,000 of his countrymen raged, Trump received a series of deferments so that he could attend college at Fordham University and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. Then, after graduation, he received his fifth free pass, a fishy medical exemption that declared him ineligible for combat.
Of course there’s nothing unusual about America’s most fortunate sons being shifted quietly out of harm’s way and into lucrative business and political careers during wartime while their blue-collar brethren are shipped off to die in the muck, but if those same men then become the loudest voices for war, if they bellow and boast about how they’d use America’s military might and which opponents they’d crush, then their hypocrisy deserves to be recognized for what it is.
The mating call of the Chicken Hawk.
Trump boasted that he would “bomb the shit out of [ISIS].”
In a way it’s curious. After all, entering the military would have made sense for Trump, who attended a private military prep school in upstate New York, where he even received a medal for neatness. If it’s any consolation, Trump says he “always felt” that he was in the military because of his time spent at the New York Military Academy making his bed and marching around campus in ceremonial military dress.
As evidenced in the document below, Trump received draft deferments in 1964, 1965, 1966, and 1968. The years marked 2-S are college deferments; 1-A means available for unrestricted military service; 1-Y means available only in national emergencies such as war, and finally 4-F means “Registrant not acceptable for military service,” which means Trump was found not qualified under the military’s “established physical, mental, or moral standards.”
“established physical, mental, or moral standards.”
That he can be "Commander in chief ?"
Ask yourself which seems more likely.
“There’s no question it fit a pattern of avoidance that was commonplace in his generation. You cut a corner, maybe got somebody to write a letter or interpret results of an Army physical in a way that was beneficial to you.”
It sounds eerily similar to the pattern of student deferments and dubious medical exemptions claimed by other notable chickenhawks like Rush Limbaugh, who allegedly had a cyst on his ass, or Dick Cheney who famously stated: “I had other priorities in the ’60s than military service.”
Did you say "But he is so likeable?"
Sorry, you said "So unbelievable!" ahah
There is a real dilemma for American voters
This campaign is not presenting a real choice for President,
Not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton
To think that we may end up with the lesser of two evils
- Or Not -
What if Obama decided to stay on Four more years?
- Think about it -
He totally ignores the will of the people
And is always ready for a game of Pitch and Putt
And after all he's not quite finished
I said: He's not quite finished
