Trump slaps the face of every Military family in USA.

People whose family members have fought and died to defend the USA and its ideals and principles, only to now be living under a puppet government installed by a hostile dictatorship. And he did it for money and his own personal 'glory'.

It's a fucking travesty. And Cheeto should remember their oath is to protect America, and defend it against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.

1. What really irks me is not the many many people who are rightfully offended by him

and his behavior, but the many veterans (who should know better), who continue to support him and praise him to the skies.

4. Actually we swear to protect the constitution not America

although the constitution is defacto America.


"I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

5. My husband and I each served 20 years

and both of us feel our lives were wasted.

Our sons, one of whom served in the Coast Guard and one in the Marines, and daughter, who served in the Air Force, feel the same. We're all doing what we can within the system we have to bring about his impeachment.

7. You served to protect and defend the Constitution..

as did I. Your time wasn't wasted, quite the contrary; my thanks to you for serving. Beats me how any veteran can support any chicken hawk draft dodger. That includes a long list of right wing cretins, psychopaths and fanatics.
