As the nation honors the many brave women and men who have served, and in many cases, given their lives for their country by wearing the uniforms of the armed services, the American People should never forget the dishonorable remarks made toward veterans by Donald Trump while he occupied the White House.
First reported by many news outlets like Vox in 2020 and verified in 2023 by Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly, the twice impeached, two-time popular vote loser, multiple David Duke endorsed, and four-time indicted former White House occupant made the following comments about veterans, including
- Not wanting to visit a French military cemetery honoring the World War One military fallen because the weather might “mess with his hair” and the graves were “filled with losers” and “suckers.”
- At first, he refused to lower the flags to honor military veteran, Senator, 2008 Republican Presidential Nominee, and political nemesis John McCain, calling him a “f–king loser.”
- Commenting on people volunteering to serve in the military, In front of John Kelly’s son’s grave in his Chief of Staff’s presence, “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”
- Being squeamish about taking pictures with military personnel who lost limbs, saying “It doesn’t look good for me.”
By the way, President Biden generally ends every speech with “God bless our troops.”
When voters consider who to send to the White House in 2024, they should not choose the person that thinks the brave souls who put their lives on the line for their country every day around the world are nothing but stupid losers and suckers.
Otherwise, we the people will become the true suckers…again.
