Those Who Serve Are NOT Suckers Or Losers!

A Point of View From Ross Douthat of the New York Times

Of all of the stupid statements made by Donald Trump, and there are many to choose from, the most outrageous in my opinion is to call those who served and/or died for this country “losers and suckers.”

It’s important to remember that Trump did not serve because his doctor lied, at Trump’s request, about so-called “bone spurs” in Trump’s feet. Trump’s father emigrated from Germany to avoid serving in the army there — so Donald had a good model to imitate.

It is the ultimate insult to call those who served “losers” or “suckers” when you are too cowardly to serve your country — and to insult the memory of John McCain after his death is, in my judgment, beyond reproach.

As a general (whose name I cannot remember at the moment) said, “I won my spurs on the battlefield and Trump got his in a doctor’s office.” I can’t say it any better than that!
