OK, either the New York Times is smoking a big, fat blunt, or Donald Trump is.
Those of you who have been around for a while know I have zero love for Trump. I’m not going to rehash his moronic condemnation of John McCain’s time as a POW, his lack of sense on national security issues, his puerile whining about reporters not liking him, and his economic douchebaggery…
Wait! No, I’m going to say something about his economic douchebaggery, because if you have Paul Krugman praising you on economic issues (his willingness to raise taxes on the rich, his positive words about universal health care), that pretty much confirms your status as a douchebag.
A recent New York Times piece quotes Trump as saying, “his experience at the New York Military Academy, an expensive prep school where his parents had sent him to correct poor behavior, gave him ‘more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.'”
Donald J. Trump, who received draft deferments through much of the Vietnam War, told the author of a forthcoming biography that he nevertheless “always felt that I was in the military” because of his education at a military-themed boarding school.
I don’t even…
A trust fund brat with disciplinary problems, who got sent to an expensive military academy for being a dick by his rich mommy and daddy compares his experience there with actual military service?
Somebody please make the bad man stop!
An expensive college prep school founded in 1889 with top-level athletic teams and an exceptional leadership program that challenges “cadets to be good citizens” is the same as military service in FerretHead’s mind?
Apparently the poor punkins had to wake up at 0600 and… you know… have a formation and stuff!
Goodness! They have rifle marksmanship, and uniforms, and stuff, and they use the 24 hour clock, so it’s almost like being in the military, right?
Poor little Trump. His heel spurs apparently kept him from military service, or else he’d have been right in there, fighting alongside the great unwashed who couldn’t get a deferment! And as Jonn points out, “…those bone spurs didn’t seem to hinder his sports career; Trump was a member of the varsity football team in 1962, the varsity soccer team in 1963, and the varsity baseball team from 1962-1964. He was also the Cadet Captain-S4 (Cadet Battalion Logistics Officer) and lead his school in the Memorial Day parade down Fifth Avenue in 1964.”
…is almost certainly the same as this:
And playing football, soccer, and baseball at a prestigious military academy that currently costs more than $37,000 per year is nearly the same as getting shot by the enemy, getting your legs blown off by an IED, or coming home in a box!
Proving once again that he is a narcissistic, spoiled, blowhard BITCH, Trump blows right by turnip and goes full rutabaga!
I’m horrified to think how many drooling tards out there want that as our president!
