Trump steps off the golf course and takes a swing at John McCain, as Losergate continues

Again the professional victim.   It must be horrible to go through life thinking everyone has it out for you.    Hugs

With the news cycle exploding over reports that Donald Trump called American soldiers who died to stop a German attack on Paris “losers” and “sucker,” it’s obvious that Trump had only one choice: Spend the day honoring America’s military by chasing a little white ball around his private golf course in Virginia.

But if Trump’s scheduled for Saturday seemed incredibly callous and tone deaf, his continuing reaction to the scandal is just as predictable as the way he shaves off just a few strokes on his scorecard. Trump’s most recent tweets starts off with a series of lies about all the great things he’s done for the military. A list that for some reason doesn’t include stealing the money that was meant to be used for housing, schools, and hospitals to be used for his nonexistent and useless “Wall.” Then Trump declared that The Atlantic author Jeffrey Goldberg was a “slimeball reporter” who was ruining all his hard work in doing things like the Veteran’s Choice bill that President Obama actually signed.

Trump also accused Goldberg of “making up a horrible charge” and said that he was “maybe working with disgruntled people.” Disgruntled people apparently covers any White House official because the statements first reported by Goldberg have been confirmed by The Washington Post, and the Associated Press, and Fox News. Not only that, Losergate is perfectly in line with everything Trump has said since before he was elected. Oh, and Trump couldn’t even make it two tweets without taking a swing at John McCain.

Trump has always claimed superior military knowledge, apparently conferred on him by years of wearing a very fancy uniform and being abusive to other students at his preppy academy. And, of course, by his ability to bribe a doctor into writing him an excuse to get out of serving in Vietnam, proving that he’s not “a sucker.” This superior knowledge allowed him to declare that he knew “more about ISIS than all the generals do” in 2015.
Six months into his time in the White House, Trump attacked military leaders for defending the benefits of the NATO alliance. Trump declared it “crazy” and “stupid” to fund bases designed to protect allies and prevent wars from being fought in the United States. When generals and historians tried to explain, Trump snarled at the whole room. “I wouldn’t go to war with you people. You’re a bunch of dopes and babies.”

    I remember how he kept extolling his “bravery,” at traversing the “minefields of STDs,” escaping unscathed, and comparing those actions of avoidance as being every bit as grueling or gruesome as anything our troops faced in Vietnam. And I bet Pepperidge Farms remembers that too, besides, as well.

      Hello Dennis. Yes my friend we remember, but his cult seems to have very bad memories of anything negative about tRump. I don’t get it, how these hyper “patriots” can support him or claim he is making the US better. He blabs our intel / military secrets to his bosses in Russia, along with people on the phone with him here in the US also. Hugs

    Scottie, I like the phrase “professional victim.” Trump is one of those people that must be built up on the people he puts down. By the way, I saw John Fogarty took issue with his song “Fortunate son” being played at the RNC (or maybe it was a rally). He said, they missed the point – Trump is the “fortunate son” who the song references. Keith

      Hello Keith. Yes twitter is going crazy over his use of the song at the rally. The idea is who ever is picking the songs is tweaking the selections to dig at tRump and his people. Everyone knows what the song was about. Yet his people are so clueless they think the song is praise for him, or is supporting the troops? Gods save us from stupid people with power. Hugs
