Trump Cancels Out of US WW I Cemetery Ceremony Due to Rain

Trump Cancels Out of US WW I Cemetery Ceremony Due to Rain:  President Trump caused embarrassment and even outrage after he canceled an appearance to honor the brave sacrifices US troops made in France during World War One - because it was raining.

What the hell, did the President’s favorite umbrella get bone spurs or something?  You’d think the Trump people would keep a few extra umbrellas on hand, bigly enough to protect the President’s beautiful crop of golden hair.  Besides, Trump sent Gen John Kelly in his place.  Now Gen Kelly’s already bald, so who cares if a bunch of rain falls on his head?  On the other hand, rain never seems to deter Trump from visiting to the golf course, but I digress.

Oh, and did I mention that President Trump just said he’d never forgive President Obama for cutting the military budget?  I mean, just think what a hardship that probably caused to the profits and stock dividends of Mr Trump’s multinational defense contractor pals?  Besides, everyone knows it’s a hell of a lot easier to hold a rally for your devoted followers in some well-heated entertainment venue and complain about those damn kneeling NFL players disrespecting the troops, then it is to stand outside somewhere in France in the rain.   

And in all fairness, I think those brave young men, who crawled through the dirt and mud in France, wounded and under fire  - would certainly understand that they were getting paid to get filthy-dirty, while President Trump likely just came from a $500 spa treatment at his 5-star hotel and doesn’t wanna get all yucky standing around in the rain, listening to speeches about a bunch of guys who died a hundred years ago.  After all, how much patriotism can they expect from one guy?

Too bad the soldiers of WWI couldn't cancel out because of rain.

Why is everything and anything President Trump does become negative publicity? Does the word "propaganda" seem to apply? The US paid a high price to bail out Europe and the rest of the world thanks to their entanglements with the blood of our servicemen and billions in reconstruction aid. Why would we have anything to apologize about? If not for America the rest of the world would be saluting portraits of Kaiser Wilhelm or Hitler! And thanks to President Trump our allies can once again trust our support as opposed to Obama. This is truth, not bullshit created by the leftist US media.

How the Hell can you excuse failing to attend a memorial service while representing the United States at the graves of our own fallen because it’s raining? I don’t for the life of me understand how a self-respecting conservative could tolerate this without extreme embarrassment. If Barack Obama had done this, we’d be hearing about it for the nest twenty years - from you. If Hillary had done that, at least fifteen. Neither, of course, would have dreamed of doing so. They both understood their jobs in a way Trump never will. 

When you were playing football, would you have refused to play in the rain? This is more important than a game. If someone had refused to play in the rain, you’d have rightfully thought they were a wimp. 

Yes, if not for America the rest of the world would be saluting portraits of Kaiser Wilhelm, and the President of the United States could not bother memorializing the men who prevented that on behalf of America because it was raining? 

Mouthpieces have no credibility. Also no shame. Spoken like a Phony American. I can’t believe you’ve sunk this low. I just can’t imagine how a real conservative could condone this. I certainly can’t imagine how a real patriot could. 

I’m not mouthing off here, attacking you for the Hell of it. If President Clinton or President Obama had done this, I’d have been deeply embarrassed on behalf of my country. Neither would have in a million years. 

They gave their lives for us? Let them eat cake. We have a privileged rich bastard for a President only, unlike other rich Presidents, he has no sense of responsibility. You might like a lot of what he stands for and that’s your right, but you have no right as an American to condone this. He represents us.

Now I’ll think of you as the guy who doesn’t believe in serving his country when it’s raining. 

If you have any integrity at all you’ll retract this. I’m not holding my breath. I hope you prove me wrong. 

Even Hitler would have had enough sense to stand in the rain for his fallen.

Re-think this. You're wrong. Koshersalaami laid it out fairly.

Deferments: Four for College, One for Bad Feet

Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.

He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.

But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

The diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.

Trump's been ducking military related service his entire life.... Why stop/change now?

Gee - it rained a lot in Viet Nam, too bad soldiers just couldn't take the day off because it would have messed up their nails.  The truth be known, these Trump people are simply cultists who have little regrad for anything but thier cult of fascism.  Trying to reason with them is ludicrous.

What saves us from fascism is Trump’s selfishness and thinking that sacrifice is for suckers. 

Comment by Tom Cordle on November 11, 2018 at 10:20am

This is the same the same semi-tough guy, who when confronted by Hillary in a debate whined "I'm not a puppet; you're the puppet" ... the same asshole, who at one international summit took a golf cart, while the other principals were walking, after having derided Hillary for her "low-energy". This is the same wimp who leaves the firing to underlings ... the same troll who wields a tweet in place of a sword ... the same sniveling coward who constantly punches down, while groveling in front of Putin.

That anyone views Sir Whines-a-lot as a tough guy is utterly baffling, other than as a sign of ignorance or willful blindness.

Well said - all of you.
