Fred Trump agreed not to increase the rent of Donald Trump's draft foot doctor

This is the hottest news article today.

Quoted below is the daughter of Larry Braunstein, the foot doctor who diagnosed Donald Trump with bone spurs during the Vietnam War:

Elysa Braunstein said the implication from her father was that Mr. Trump did not have a disqualifying foot ailment. “But did he examine him? I don’t know,” she said.

The article goes on to note that the foot doctor was a tenant of Fred Trump, (Donald’s father). Fred Trump agreed not to increase the foot doctors rent in subsequent years, suggesting the diagnosis was a favor:

Dr. Alec Hochstein, who worked with Dr. Braunstein in the late 1990s, said the podiatrist had recalled over dinner with their wives how the Trumps had treated him well, including backing off from rent increases.

1. I knew it was a lie.

Even the fake medical doctor was a dangerous joke but the corporate media did not follow up. Still has not. Will this story have legs. We shall see although it makes not difference to his supporters.


t-rump's whole life is a lie. In this instant, it hurts the USA and her people.

3. But will members of the military and supporters of the military still support Trump?

My guess is yes because Hillary is a woman, Obama is a black,
and Fox News, hate talk media, their "Pastors," and generational
thinking that I am proud to be stupid will win out over facts.

5. Where are these military who have woken up?

 

I don't see them, but I really hope you are correct.

The son of a friend of mine is a high ranking military official who swears that trump is the real deal, her mother keeps saying that she cannot talk about it, but that her son assures her, so who is she going to believe, all the proof out there, or her son? The sad thing is that other military people who serve with her son, high ranking as well, seem to think like her son too, so I do want to know where those who are awakening are.

12. And therefore ...

... i resent the generalized characterization of military personnel being unwilling to support a woman or an African American or someone who is both. The military is not a racist institution.

9. Excuse me please- but

20+ year retired military here. Please don’t paint us all as Trumpers. We’re not .
Many of us are dems, AND more and more are becoming “woke folk”.
