Oh Fuck, Not Again: Trump said MIA soldiers ‘deserved what they got’ (Washington Post story)



President Donald Trump—who reportedly referred to injured and killed U.S. soldiers as “losers”—is also apparently confused as to why the government values finding soldiers missing in action. He told senior advisers those soldiers had performed poorly, gotten caught and therefore deserved what they got, according to The Washington Post. 

The account followed an explosive report by The Atlantic on Thursday that outlined Trump’s deep disdain for the military members, both dead and alive. The president, who famously dodged the Vietnam War draft due to bone spurs, called military members and marines “losers” and “suckers”—either because they died, were captured, or didn’t manage to evade the draft. (like Trump did)

The White House and Trump strongly dismissed the report, with Trump calling the anonymous sources used for the article “lowlifes.” But Trump has put his disdain on the record, criticizing prisoner of war John McCain in 2016 by saying, “I like people who weren’t caught.”

  1. I live outside the US and the US political system is putrid. I’m no fan of Trump but many of these articles seem to me more like hit pieces rather than credible journalism.

    • Would it be ‘credible journalism’ if we kissed the ass of the mob owned pedophile they sent to piss on us all? grow the fuck up.

  2. If you watch a bit further in that infamous video, you see something very revealing about Drumpf…

    and the blatant media misrepresentations that helped elect him.

    (He’s not the “UnPolitician*” they hailed him as. He’s the UberPolitician**.

    And a follower, [of his base] not leader.)

    The crowd went from laughing with his dumb jokes and comments, to moaning at “HE’S NOT A WAR HERO… I like people who weren’t captured”.

    Then IMMEDIATELY after the moaning, he changes his stance to “PERHAPS HE’S A WAR HERO”.

    Just like when he ran on the extremist war-criminal platform of worse torture and targeting civilians.

    FOX NEWS moderators called him out, and he ditched that platform by the next day.

  3. VT Editors

    Trump may hug the Russian flag, but he doesn’t hug the Communist flag of the former Soviet Union, as VT editors do.
