Trump's "bone spurs": daughters of doctor say diagnosis was a favor to Fred Trump

Donald Trump trashed John McCain's history as a POW, to the delight of his followers, because he says he didn't think soldiers who are caught as POWs deserve any respect. He likes soldiers who don't get caught, he told us.

Well, it seems that he, or at least his dad, followed that advice. The daughters of a foot doctor in Queens have reported that their dad sent in that report as a favor to Fred Trump. In return, he apparently got express and premium service for any repairs he needed for his unit.

"If there was anything wrong in the building, my dad would call and (Fred) Trump would take care of it immediately," she told The Times.

Elysa Braunstein also told the newspaper that her father implied that Trump did not have a foot ailment.

In 1968, after receiving four deferments due to education, Donald Trump was diagnosed with bone spurs in his heels at the age of 22, seven years before the Vietnam War ended.

In a 2016 interview with The Times, Trump claimed that a doctor "gave me a letter -- a very strong letter -- on the heels" to provided to draft officials. In the interview, Trump "couldn't recall" the name of the doctor. "

The open and deplorable hypocrisy of Trump cultists knows no bounds.
