No Wizard Behind The Curtain, Just Dangerous, Dictator-Loving Trump

Last night gave America a preview of what to expect in the upcoming presidential debates from Donald Trump — spoiler alert: it’s more of the same. For months, Trump has repeatedly insulted U.S. military leaders, lavished compliments on dictators like former KGB officer Vladimir Putin, and displayed a total ignorance of foreign affairs.

Trump’s ego reared its ugly head several times, especially when he was asked about our military leaders. “The generals have been reduced to rubble,” he said. From the Khans to his past comments on Vietnam, it’s obvious that Trump doesn’t understand sacrifice.

Trump’s Military Record

“I always thought I was in the military. I felt like I was in the military in a true sense.”
—Donald Trump, who thinks he knows what it means to serve in the military — because he went to prep school.

Donald Trump has disparaged prisoners of warlied about his donations to veterans charities, and described his alleged avoidance of sexually transmitted diseases as his “personal Vietnam.”

Donald Trump claims to respect servicemen and women, but he’s diminished military service to the equivalent of navigating New York’s dating scene.

This is Donald Trump’s military record:

Trump: Avoiding STDs Was “My Personal Vietnam.”

Trump: “We Have Our Own Vietnam. It’s Called The Dating Game.”

Trump: “Dating Is Like Being In Vietnam.”

Trump: I Felt “A Little Guilty” For Not Serving In Vietnam Because Of My “Foot Thing.”
