"You can shoot me, but you'll have to kill us all... Something." Trump said at the #VeteransDay Para

Then he waited for applause that never came.




What an asshole...

though it must be said, without much enthusiasm.

2. All of who?

Who was he talking about? Crooks? Trumps? Repiggies? Republican scum?

Why would we want to shoot anyone?

3. He was referring to a story about a POW.

'If you are going to shoot, you are going to have to shoot all of us because we know who you are and you'll be tried for war crimes when we win this war,'"
Or so I have read. He quotes it incorrectly. Nothing like watching a loser quote a real hero.

6. Why, did he say "something"?

Was that a demand, "okay people do something, clap", or was he trying to read and commenting: "there was more but I can read it"?

something something la la...

Trump ain't right in the head.

12. Is he behind a protective screen?

Does that have something to do with his weird-ass statement?

...or something?

13. Deceptive editing

From the prepared text of his speech:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-new-york-city-veterans-day-parade/

"Roddie was in the 422nd regiment, which was overwhelmed when the Nazis launched their surprise assault. He and his men fought for three treacherous days before being taken as prisoners of war.

After they arrived at a prison camp, the German commander sent an order over the loud speaker. The Jewish-American soldiers were all told to step out of line during the roll call the next day. Knowing the terrible fate that would come to his Jewish comrades, Roddie immediately said, “We’re not doing that.” He sent orders to have every American step out of line with their Jewish brothers-in-arms.

The next morning, 1,292 Americans stepped forward. The German commander stormed over to Roddie and said, “They cannot all be Jews.” Roddie stared right back; he said, “We are all Jews here.”

At that point, the German put a gun to Roddie’s head and demanded, “You will order the Jews to step forward immediately or I will shoot you right now through the head.” Roddie responded, “Major, you can shoot me, but you’ll have to kill us all.” That’s something. (Applause.) The German turned red, got very angry, but put down his gun, and walked away."

This is one of those clips which is deceptively edited by someone and put out "to show how stupid the libs are".
