Donald Trump fled the Russiagate tempest swirling around his White House yesterday and gave a speech aboard the USS Gerald R.Ford in Virginia. The ship’s crew gave him an admiral’s cap that he wore along with a flight jacket — despite the fact that Donald dodged the draft during the Vietnam War, taking no less than five deferments.
USA Today noted that actual veterans were outraged by the so-called president’s playing dress-up in military attire.
As a Veteran watching a 5 time draft dodging COWARD saluting a Marine guard is the epitome of HYPOCRISY Impeach this cowardly bastard NOW!!!
