Veterans Group Ad Says Trump Has Betrayed Military, 'Emboldens the Enemy

Trump Ignores Russian Bounties on American Troops
The Administration has done nothing about intelligence reports of a grave escalation from Moscow.

Veterans Group Ad Says Trump Has Betrayed Military, 'Emboldens the Enemy'

Newsweek:
VoteVets.org is an organisation and action fund with around 700,000 members across the country including troops, veterans, military families, and their supporters.

The video posted by the group was published on Twitter with the caption: "Our military has been repeatedly BETRAYED by Trump. Now he is panicking, using any excuse to show up in military communities. Like today, in Wilmington, NC. But service members know better."

From MilitaryTimes:
Report: Trump disparaged US war dead as ‘losers,’ ‘suckers

A new report details multiple instances of President Donald Trump making disparaging remarks about members of the U.S. military who have been captured or killed, including referring to the American war dead at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France in 2018 as “losers” and “suckers.”



The allegations were first reported in The Atlantic. A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments.

The defense officials said Trump made the comments as he begged off visiting the cemetery outside Paris during a meeting following his presidential daily briefing on the morning of Nov. 10, 2018.




Retired general blasts Trump on reported military comments: 'You're no patriot'

A retired Army general on Thursday night went viral for his scathing response to a report that President Trump made disparaging remarks about dead U.S. service members, telling Trump he's "no patriot."

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton posted a video responding to a new report in The Atlantic which detailed Trump allegedly calling the U.S. service members who were buried in a French cemetery during World War I "losers."

The magazine also reported that Trump referred to U.S. Marines who were killed at Belleau Wood during World War I as "suckers" because they died.

Veterans Group Ad Says Trump Has Betrayed Military, 'Emboldens the Enemy

...

FWIW, John Bolton, no friend to Donald Trump talked about the Belleau Wood trip in his book and makes no claims whatsoever that are even close to the crap spewed by "anonymous sources" then published in a notorious propaganda rag.

I know you people WANT to believe this stuff but, realistically, if it actually happened then we'd have heard about it way back when it happened.

Ummmm... Please use the internet.. Don't just parrot Fox's talking points without doing some homework for yourself...Bolton has said just the opposite of what you wrote.

Trump insulting POW's and Gold star families, calling generals babies and cowards, calling fallen heroes losers and suckers does not... Don't you know how a cult works?

You are talking to the wind, because all the crap Trump has done and continues to do, you guys are blind with cult devotion.... but you were eagerly ready and overtly dedicated to believing Trump Birther Bull**** about Obama... YOU HAVE NO CREDIBILITY!!!
You'd have done yourself better to keep silent.

So many people have exposed so much about Trump's malice, meglomania, vitriol, self consumed egotism, seditious acts and mindsets, and we've heard every public comment of his attack on every department and division, agency and organization of America's Governance, and his attack on McCain, and all the others he's attacked... and you guys are so cult devoted, that you'd try to convince people Trump is some Angel with wings, if you thought you could get away with it.

Let you tell it, everyone in the world is lying except Trump... (That's the mentality of a Cult Devotee)

I'm assuming that you can provide a quote or something from Bolton to back that up. All I was able to come up with is a quote from the relevant section of Bolton's book - https://twitter.com/ByronYork/status/1301851565465186311 - and this quote from today where Bolton says something to the effect of "I didn't hear him say that - John Bolton says he didn't hear Trump insult fallen soldiers in France | TheHill

You come across as being rather angry. I may be misinterpreting things but I get the impression of some frustration and maybe even a little hostility regarding this issue. Would it be helpful if I got you a coloring book and a security blanket to kind of ease the trauma of having to discuss this kind of thing?

All you ever do is defend Trump and attack the left. Why should anyone listen to you?

(Extra credit: if I go digging, will I find posts in which you dismiss Bolton's book as just being the revenge of a disgruntled employee - one of those "the very best people" that Trump keeps firing and who keep ending up in jail?)

Switching to trolling as a defense now?

Truth has no meaning in the discussions here.

All this started 4 years ago.

Trump needs top be jailed.

“In one account, the president told senior advisers that he didn’t understand why the U.S. government placed such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserved what they got, according to a person familiar with the discussion.

Trump believed people who served in the Vietnam War must be “losers” because they hadn’t gotten out of it, according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then-Chief of Staff John F. Kelly that he didn’t understand why Kelly and others in the military treated McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War, with such reverence. “Isn’t he kind of a loser?” Trump asked, according to the person familiar with Trump’s comments."


Trump seems to think his praetorian guard, composed of burly leather clad bikers with POW/MIA patches on their vests, are deaf and blind.
Will we witness the ultimate hypocrisy where they echo his "LOSERS AND SUCKERS WHO GOT WHAT THEY DESERVED" or will they finally awaken from their slumber?

Do you seriously think such a comment by you, is suppose to change my stance on truths that matter? If you have such thoughts, then your delirium is far more severe than the comment you posted that denotes that condition.

This lie is being destroyed as I type by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

It's no surprise you see the same goofballs peddling this fake news.

You know the drill: if an anonymous source says something reflecting negatively on Trump, it's automatically false even if it lines up 100% with things Trump said publicly. But those latter things shouldn't have been reported because reporting things Trump says is making him look bad. Yadda yadda.

Just wait for an anonymous source to say something about Biden. They'll say that we have to automatically accept it even as they continue to automatically reject anything said about Trump.

I have no idea why anyone who ever served, would vote for Trump.

It makes no sense why anyone who considers themselves an American, would even consider voting for Trump or the Republican members of the Senate or the House!!


What it does tell us is: The Confederate Idealist who invaded our Political System have continued their attacks on American Democracy, and that the Various Regiment (who use the labels of Various Right Groomed Political Parties) have been attacking America for the 150+ yrs since the Confederate Defeat On the Battle Fields of bullets and cannon balls, these Confederate Idealist, simply move their war into our United State Governance Offices.... Federal, State and Local... and go by a variety of regiments with various names, they call political ideal groups.

It's no different than any factions that goes to war, create a variety of "regiments" to attack from "a variety of angles'. We know them as Modern Day Right Wing Republicans, Republican Conservatives, Right Leaning Independents, Right Groomed Libertarians, Right Leaning Centrist, Right Leaning Democrats, Right Leaning Green Party and Etc...

We need to recognize it, know it when and as we see it, and stand against it at all time, and work as a unified American Democratic Society to once and for all Vanquish These Confederate Treasonous and Seditious Actors and their Followings. We have technology that can identify "all of them" and outline the elements and facts of their support of Seditious Ideals, and the acts that are Treasonous Against the Principles and Values of American Democracy.

We do know that much of the constituency that makes up their following are Illiterate to Civics and Illiterate to Truth in and of The History of America, Many are illiterate to the basic principles of THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, and their Confederate Ideals Detest The Values and Responsibilities laid out in THE PREAMBLE... and we know they have no comprehensive understanding of THE UNITED STATE CONSTITUTION

The Declaration of Independence: is a Liberal Document for Liberalism Among American Society and The American Nation.

The Preamble: is about Liberal Values, for the Liberalism within and about and for American Society and The American Nation

The Constitution: is about Liberal Principles, Values and Ethics for the Liberal Promotion and Sustainability of Equality of Person, as Individual, for the Liberalism within and about and for America and American Society and The American Nation.

Be Alert, and Know...
How to Discern and Clearly Identify Seditious Confederacy Idealist and their Confederacy Agenda....
