TRUMP: I Never Went To Vietnam, But 'I Felt That I Was In The Military'

well then, plastic soldier - tell that to OUR TROOPS!!!!



Donald Trump believes that because he attended a military high school, he has an understanding of what it is like to be in the military, despite deferring the Vietnam War draft for medical reasons.

"My number was so incredible and it was a very high draft number. Anyway so I never had to do that, but I felt that I was in the military in the true sense because I dealt with those people," Trump told Michael D’Antonio, the author of the forthcoming book "Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success," according to a preview in the New York Times.

Trump attended the New York Military Academy from eighth grade through the end of high school where he participated in military drills and encountered some instructors who had served in the military, according to the Times.

He told D'Antonio that at the academy, he got "more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military."

51. Wake up republicans? I'm afraid it is usually a life-long disease.

One of my ex-colleagues who is very active in the republican Iowa party was sure that jeb would get the nomination and thought trump was absurd. No reason for discussion.

Now she's unwilling to say anything bad about the trumpster, just that obama and hillary are bad for the country.

Once they've contracted the disease (usually through their parents) it is very hard to intervene and return them back to logical thinking.

I'm truly sorry that he said it, that it's being carried in the press, that he, a candidate for the President of the United States, Commander in Chief, is diminishing what you gave of yourself, what so many thousands of young men, and many women, gave their lives for, and so very many families lost.

The absolute, unmitigated gall to say this makes me physically ill. I'm truly sorry.

I'm the third poster that quoted this because it is so fucking unbelievable. After a few laps around the track in camo briefs he got into his chauffeured limo and got a massage to work out those leg cramps. Does one know that he was sent to this quasi-military elitist school because he had a behavior problem. His parents probably sent him there to straighten him out.

Did you ever notice how Trump has to elevate himself? Even his draft number was "incredible", and he got "more training". Jesus does this guy EVER do anything normal? I bet his bowel movements are incredible because he's so full of incredible amounts of shit.

When is too much too much for America? This has too be over the line .

Rick Santorum

Scott Walker
Bobby Jindal
Ted Cruz
Marco Rubio
Jeb Bush
Ted Cruz
Chris Christie
Carly Fiorina
Rand Paul
Donald Trump

George Pataki

This was actually quite hard. Some of these are obviously trying to look stupid to appeal to the base. Some are probably better managed to appear less stupid. Oh, well.

I trained West Point Cadets while in the 82nd Airborne Infantry---err the real military.

West Point is considered the top Academy in the Army and has produced some terrific officers.

With that said---training them was pretty damn difficult---because---just like street smarts, they had no field smarts. It's one thing learning from a book, it's another when performing the real task.

This guys is skating very close to "Stolen Valor".

104. Your brother did combat assaults in the A Shau by Huey; Trump did party insertions by limo

I know your brother went through the hellish fighting at Ripcord, while Trump was braving those nightmarish pillow fights at his academy.

It's all pretty much the same thing, right?

And while yor brother did 2 months of Basic Training and 2 months of Advanced Infantry Training, Trump marched drill and ceremonies training on the parade field for years!

But seriously, to borrow a Vietnamese expression, Trump may be rich but he isn't worth your brother's little fingernail.

36. Remember when Romney "felt" that he had marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., but only his father

had?

Funny how all these "feelings" are only about things that they think will help them get elected, isn't it?

I mean, we never hear, "I cheated on an exam. Oh, wait, as it turned out, I never actually did that. I only felt I had cheated."

Filed Chapter 11 in March. It would be interesting to see if he is contributing to the restructuring seeing he thinks so much of the school.

NYMA is on its last legs. Enrollment is at 145 students (Wikipedia). Tuition is $36K a year. They are open for the fall 2015 semester.

58. A decade ago a friend's small daughters made me play dress-up with them and wear a tiara

So I guess even a male is exceptionally qualified to be Queen of Romania--probably more qualified than most princesses who are born to it, in fact!

And a tiara goes surprisingly well with a beard.

on the front line. What an insult to the troops that did spend time on the front line.

We need a DC memorial for people like Trump who fought the war in a military academy.

That NYMA is where NYC rich folks send their bratty boys to school when they become too much to handle. The only "military" training that he got was marching on the field. The school is nothing more than preppy boys who think that their feces smell like roses, and are loud-mouthed about it. Always was, always will be.

That they grew up within walking distance of NYMA. They were just rich boys but the local kids loved them - they partied a lot, had lots of money, and could buy beer. That was about it.

90. High draft number got him out? The lottery wasn't until December 1969.

He was almost 24 years old before the first lottery numbers were drawn. How did he dodge it from 1964 until those with the lowest numbers started getting drafted in January 1970?

Hell, they can even mock the vets who did serve while they were hanging out on french beaches or partying in prep school.

Meanwhile, actual decorated vets like John Kerry get smeared as traitors to their country, and the media plays along with it, acting as if the discredited swift boat liars had equal merit to actual facts.
