@TAS - Tehachapi, CAIf President Trump had any common sense
he'd know it is politically incorrect to say what you are actually
thinking. In Washington you are expected to smile and tell people what you
think they want to hear. For some reason Hillary Clinton played the game
correctly but still managed to lose the election to a man without "lick of
common sense".The liberals are still seething over the loss of
their heroine to a man like Trump.
Trump has no business meddling in the internal affairs of our closest ally the U
K. The man does not have a lick of common sense.
Ralph - Salt Lake City, UTSome people got deferments and some men
went to Canada to escape being drafted.We could learn a lot from Israel.
They don't like to go to war but when they do it is over quick and fast.
(Their six-day war is a classic example.)We lost over 58,000 dead
and 304,000 were injured, and what did we achieve for that terrible price?I solute each and every man that got a deferment from that ugly immoral
@ CactusI was not referring to your service but to Trump using his
wealth and influence to get out of serving. And now he is banging the drums of
war. That is absolutely hypocritical to me.
@cactus pete, perhaps the Vietnam War was a quagmire, like every war we've
fought since.Perhaps the war was immoral. Perhaps there was a breakdown
of discipline, as you suggest.None of your non sequiturs will
detract from the fact that when it came time to serve, Donnie used a pathetic
excuse, along with his father's wealth, to get out of serving his country.
He didn't avoid fighting out of an abundance of conscience, we know that
for a fact. Was Donald a coward for avoiding the fight? I don't know, but making up excuses and using one's wealth to avoid
fighting for your country doesn't exactly make him courageous. But
oh boy does Donnie like to talk like a tough guy, don't he?
furymouse - Draper, UTPlease don't get all uppity about something you
obviously know nothing about. I didn't support that ugly war, and I
didn't volunteer. I was given a draft lottery number and unluckily for me
my number got called. The only thing good about it was that I get VA
benefits. You are waaaaaaaay over your head on this subject and the
less you say the better you'll look.
@Cactus Pete - Centerville, UTNov. 30, 2017 12:33 p.m.Was
there anything morally wrong with getting a deferment from that ugly war.
(I'd explain it in detail but the Deseret News sensors would have a heart
attack.)People that want to blubber about Trump getting as deferment
should consider joining the military. May I suggest the Marines.======= I'm from that era Pete.Trump was not only
a draft dodging coward, he used his daddy's money and influence to
buy a FAKE Doctor's note about bone spurs to do it.BTW -- I
wasn't drafted -- I ENLISTED!...and you?
@ Cactus"Was there anything morally wrong with getting a
deferment from that ugly war. "If you support the war but are
not willing to go fight in said war then you are an immoral hypocrite and
deserve to be scorned. Especially when you then mock those that have served like
Just a general comment for those too young to have served in Vietnam: Towards
the end there was a major breakdown in discipline. Drug use was rampant.
Soldiers were dying in a conflict we had already decided to run from with our
tail between our legs. Did I mention the returning soldiers that were spit on
by Americans when they got home?Was there anything morally wrong
with getting a deferment from that ugly war. (I'd explain it in detail but
the Deseret News sensors would have a heart attack.)People that want
to blubber about Trump getting as deferment should consider joining the
military. May I suggest the Marines.
Trump supporters, when will he act like he is the president? He can’t say
anything he wants he is an employee of the United States and his tweeting
conduct reflects poorly on this nation.
trumps tweets will be the end of many a good relationship in the world.
If we can't trust Donald Trump with a Twitter account from attacking our
friends and allies and seriously damaging diplomatic relations -- WHY on earth should we trust him with the nuclear codes?!Unfit and
un-qualified for office....possible Dementia being reported today -- 25th the 45th
Drawing a line in the sand and then letting your enemies walk all over it is my
definition of a coward.Please don't mention the Vietnam
"conflict". There came a time when our officers started getting fraged
by their own soldiers. Google the "Kent State shootings" where we
killed unarmed students protesting the war and then come back and we'll
talk about your draft deferrals in a war we lost.
The tweet that offended all reasonable people in the world cannot be spun out of
a mistake. As many people are saying, it demonstrates serious dysfunction of the
person with the Twitter account.
Rifleman, Trump is a coward like no other. Bullies, by their
nature, are cowards.Besides getting 5 draft deferrals during the
Vietnam War, which made his disrespect of John McCain's service all the
more telling of Trump's character.As a candidate and as a
President, he has never once taken responsibility of any of his actions, no
matter who he has offended. A man of character can own the consequences of his
behaviour. Trump has no character.If you feel the need to
"what-about" with someone of different political opinions, go right
ahead.But there is no denying that Donald Trump is the most cowardly
and weak leader this country has ever seen.
Trump may have his own mind, but you have to wonder what paranoid fearfest is
going through it that made it seem that doing this was a good idea. He
really does appear unstable.
Utah Girl Chronicles - Eagle Mountain, UTI don't know where you
get the idea that President Trump is a coward. He has a mind of his own, and
unlike Hillary Clinton isn't afraid to say what he actually thinks.Speaking of Hillary I hope you were as excited as I was to see her sit
and watch President Trump get sworn into office. A genuine smile if ever I saw
When a liberal leader tweets, that's wonderful free speech but if President
Trump tweets, oh my gosh, that's just horrible! Brits have so many more
problems than President Trump's tweets!
Trump will probably scrap the trip because he is basically a coward. Without
fawning attention from his hosts and without a lavish state welcome, Trump would
rather do phone-in interviews with "Fox and Friends".
If England doesn't want our help they are welcome to go it alone.
The first golfer can tweet battle May and then golf a lot in Scotland.Many
people are saying that he is jealous of the coverage of the new Wedding plans
stealing his hard fought TV coverage.
