Trump calls military veterans and war heroes “suckers” and “losers”. “The president has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources tell The Atlantic.” Jeffrey Goldberg wrote about Trump’s disdain for military service for The Atlantic.
Trump referred to former President George H. W. Bush as a “loser” for being shot down by the Japanese as a Navy pilot in World War II.
Where is Lindsey Graham?
Senior staff members admitted that Trump said, “Why should I go to that [military] cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
On the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.
When war hero John McCain died in August 2018, Trump told his senior staff, “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral.” He became furious when flags were lowered to half-staff as a sign of respect. “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.”
How can Lindsey Graham remain quiet?
“In a 2018 White House planning meeting for such an event, Trump asked his staff not to include wounded veterans, on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees. “Nobody wants to see that.”
Trump’s lawyer admits that the bone spurs were lies. No medical evidence supports the medical deferments he received.
The article is well done and speaks volumes. I hope sources come forward publicly soon.
