After a week in which President Trump endured not-so-veiled criticisms
from his two predecessors as president and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.),
McCain delivered another broadside that seems clearly aimed at Trump in
the most personal terms yet.
McCain, whose status as a war hero Trump publicly and controversially
doubted as a 2016 presidential candidate, appeared to retaliate in kind
against the president in a C-SPAN interview about the Vietnam War airing
Sunday night. In the interview, McCain pointed to wealthy Americans who
were able to get out of being drafted into service in the conflict in
which he spent years as a prisoner of war. And he pointed to a very
specific type of deferment which Trump just happened to use.
One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never ever
countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the
highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone
spur, McCain said. That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask
every American to serve, every American should serve.
Trump received five deferments during Vietnam: four for his studies in
college, and one for you guessed it bone spurs in his heel. As The
Washington Post reported in July 2015:
For the previous four years, Trump had avoided the draft and the
possibility of being sent to fight in the Vietnam War by obtaining four
separate deferments so he could study at Fordham University and the
University of Pennsylvania. With his diploma in hand and his college days
over, he was suddenly vulnerable to conscription.
Trumps exposure to the draft, however, didnt last long. Two months
later, on Sept. 17, 1968, he reported for an armed forces physical
examination and was medically disqualified, according to the ledger from
his local Selective Service System draft board in Jamaica, N.Y., now in
the custody of the National Archives.
The ledger does not detail why Trump failed the exam the Selective
Service destroyed all medical records and individual files after the draft
ended in 1973 and the military converted to an all-volunteer force.
Barack Obama forged a draft registration.
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party has run out of gas.
Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for ending the disaster of the
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
