So Trump snuck off to visit the troops? I happy that he went to see the real heroes!

It only took two years for him to do that! But who wants to bet that plane doesn't return to DC with out going to Florida or New Jersey for his vacation?

Wonder if he will go to Florida from there instead of WH.

3. Joining the military

 

to escape the lack of opportunity in Dumbfuckistan, USA does not make you a hero.

It makes you an economically vulnerable person with no prospects who now has a government job. But it doesn't make you a hero.

6. Surely you're not implying that all or even most service members...

 

...joined the military because they were under financial hardship and had no other options or recourse, are you?

Surely not.

7. no one said all or most

 

except you.

Many, many join when faced with the prospect of no prospects.

Still, MAKING A PERSONAL DECISION to get a government job fighting for the rights and privileges of the wealthy does not AUTOMATICALLY make you a hero.

8. But, remember this!

They are fighting for your rights too! Please, remember also that some have given their lives for your rights and privileges. I get it some war are unnecessary, but if these men and women are ordered in to battle, they must follow orders. Unlike Capt. Bone Spurs Trump, they are doing their civil duty. I must say your comments are unwarranted and just why out of line.

10. So the answer to my question is "No"...

 

...which is good to know because here I was, thinking that you had some kind of problem with people who chose to serve in the military.

Silly me...

12. To be fair, the word "Hero" is used too much...

 

...Heroes jump on top of grenades to save their friends and heroes run into burning buildings and towards the sound of gunfire to save strangers. That being said, there's something heroic about anyone who volunteers to possibly give their life in service to their country, whether any or everybody else acknowledges or appreciated it.

Thank you for being one of those who does.

4. Of course he's going to Florida after this

Someone on the staff finally got it through Donny's head that the troops could be ordered to cheer and smile for him, so he finally decided to go after taking a raft of shit for his failure to do so up til now.

9. Limbaugh and Ann Coulter probably told him to go

Heís desperate now that they arenít happy with him. Even Melaniaks smile looks forced. She looks desperately scared too.
