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?
tRump is semi-living proof that not all pigs like to wallow in slop.
Unlike Junior Senator Barack Obama shielded by the US media and of no accomplishments at all other than incorrectly second guessing Bush's surge in Iraq that quelled the growing violence and terrorism then leaving Chicago as 5 Gay black men who all knew him were murdered while he was already under investigation for corruption involving the financial collapse of a 460 million dollar urban renewal project is what I would define as a PIG WALLOWING IN SHIT and then being groomed for a presidency that doomed America 8 years of economic, military, and social decline clearly fits your comment Tom!
Gosh, and I wonder how many privileged up and coming political figures were conveniently issued deferments and medical rejections? I also wonder what Democrat or Republican president ever donated a million dollars to a US city (Houston) for disaster relief as well as a hundred thousand to a Black church in Louisiana for the same? I recall Obama who applied for a federal education grant and tuition as a foreign student, and people wonder why his citizenship was in doubt! Aw, the rationale of the left always oblivious of their blatant hypocrisy!
Accompanies Godzilla on a rampage across Tokyo stomping the metropolis unmercifully!
President Trump spits on a statue of Stalin in Red Square and starts World War III
President Trump colludes with Skeletor and the Romulans to place the universe under an evil empire! Captain Kirk was unavailable for comment!
This is how insane these editorial characterizations of our President here are and it's called PROPAGANDA!
Doc Vega can't even put lipstick on the Trump pig over his refusal to visit the fallen heroes of WW I. This is the most unpatriotic thing a POTUS has ever done in American history!
Bullshit! Lefty! Obama failed to appear at numerous veterans ceremonies even with Michelle making snarky remarks like "all of this over a flag?" And you hypocrites here never said shit! And you know it!
Good grief Doc! You are losing it. I suggest you seek some psychiatric help with your anger management issues and your tendency to fall for the wildest, insane conspiracy stories. Oh yeah, Trump never paid that money he promised and indeed, the response to Harvey here in Texas, where I experienced the storm, was woefully inadequate.
I don't know how old you are but you will live longer and be happier if you just chill a little bit.
Hey Doc, was Trumpy too busy doing his hair today or yesterday to appear at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the way Obama did every year during his administration?
