really??? no wayyyy........ but if so, then what would be better fitting for the ulitmate president king of fake, spin and lies


and to paraphrase the POS himself: I consider he meant it just just like I suggested. I and him have a difference of opinion. BAM!!

honestly — I think he should let me run this forum, he runs the country. And if he did it well, his ratings would be much better.
OK, that’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough.


That’s enough.

I watched the video. I agree with Bombsquad. Although the full message was that he wants to do more for mental health, for PTSD and veteran suicide, - which is good - he definitely implied that those (veterans) in the room were strong because they could handle the things they had seen (many times over), whereas those affected mentally were not as strong (i.e they are weak, they can't handle it). Yes, I agree there has been spin in the reporting (hasn't there always in politics?), but he just shouldn't imply that those who suffer PTSD, and those veterans that commit suicide, are weak - he just didn't need to do it. Again. His mouth is a train wreck.

We are all okay, as long as "we" are the ones living on top of the empire of eternal war. - Jaawwnn

Years ago no one addressed PTSD, as it is today. Many of those older vets did suffer psychological problems, so he can’t really say that many of them were able to ‘handle it.’ Years ago, even among veterans, until the 90s mental health issues was still a taboo topic in this country, so we really don’t know on a large scale if many older vets were able handle it. After the Vietnam war, many of those returning home from serving this country to present day, were not as embraced by the public as those that served im wars prior to that time period. My friend’s father was shot in the head, during his time served, and had metal left in his head, and sufferedd serious mental issues after that. Had you not known him you would never know something wasn’t right, because it was hidden well in public.

What I don´t understand is why so many veterans still support him despite all the disrespect he shows them all the time. I have friends who used to be in the Army and they support every single thing he says or does even though he´s a draft dodger and says and does very disrespectful things against veterans.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"

Agreed. Donald Trump is a guy that did everything he could to avoid service - four deferments, and then some made-up "bone spurs".

Same thing with Ted Nugent - he actually peed and pooped his pants (and did lots more) in order to avoid military service. And yet, a lot of vets love him.

But it's probably just a symptom of a larger disease - Voting Against Your Best Interests or VAYBI.

These VAYBIs consistently vote to transfer their hard-earned money to the 1%; to eliminate their own health care; adnd so on and so on. VAYBIs are surprisingly prevalent in our country.

On a side note, we ran into some VAYBIs the other night. Part of their platform was that "everybody should be in the 1%". When told that was mathematically impossible, things got ugly. Math and VAYBIs apparently don't mix.

He's doubling down on what he said about John McCain -

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
