Did he have bone spurs also?

Pretty comical for one draft dodger to try and insult another
One joined the reserves, the other got bonespurs.
One falsely said he went to Vietnam, One told radio host Howard Stern that avoiding sexually transmitted diseases was like his "personal Vietnam." "It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era,” Trump said to Stern, discussing his sex life. "I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

Senator Richard Blumenthal must talk about his fraudulent service in Vietnam, where for 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero. Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!

Trumps Tariffs lie

Trump telling Americans China is paying billions in tariffs?

another example of the stupid American voter thinking thats the case

China isn't paying the tariffs, however -- the duties are paid by importers like Ford or Walmart that either swallow the cost or pass it along to consumers.

Whos paying for Trumps the never ending campaign rally

Just another example if it was some on else the wheel would come off the bus



A Trump rally in Lynden, Washington — population 14,000 — cost taxpayers $155,000 for added security. A rally in Phoenix cost more than $450,000.


I am sure other states and cities have the same issue

please dont use the excuse other POTUS have done it .. not even close

I agree with this standard

“If it’s partisan, political activity, then it has to come from non-governmental, non-taxpayer sources,” Schultz said.


“How much does the taxpayer pay for as legitimate business for the president, versus how much gets carved out in terms of a partisan event,

You still don't understand this form of Trumpism. He compresses diction, leaving out a whole lot of words which would more clearly say what's in his head. In this case, rather then saying something like "The duties are paid by Chinese based importers like Ford or Walmart that either swallow the cost or pass it along to consumers. This is in retaliation for the billions that China collects from American based importers. China, not its Chinese based exporters, receives those tariffs. It also receives billions into its economy from the exports it sends to the U.S. By Charging tariffs on those goods it sells into the U.S., it drains billions from the Chinese economy and pays billions into the American economy," he just says, instead, "China is paying billions in tariffs."

I responded to this by you: "Trumps Tariffs lie

Trump telling Americans China is paying billions in tariffs?

I didn't notice anything in there about the economy and why is it booming. It appeared to me that it was totally about Trump lying about China not paying the tariffs. Perhaps you can point out where in that statement by you there is anything about the economy booming or the reason for it. Or is it a case of your own form of Trumpism?

I would have to say you changed the subject.

Unless of course this was another example of your "Spot On" reading comprehension skills you like to brag about.
