Trump minimizes severity of head injuries in Iran attacks

Source: AP

President Donald Trump on Wednesday minimized the severity of head injuries sustained by U.S. troops during the Iranian missile strikes on two Iraqi air bases as he was pressed on why hed claimed no troops had been injured in the attacks.

I heard they had headaches and a couple of other things ... and I can report it is not very serious, Trump said at a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, arguing that potential traumatic brain injuries are less severe than, say, missing limbs.

No, I dont consider them very serious injuries relative to other injuries that Ive seen, the Republican president said. Ive seen what Iran has done with their roadside bombs to our troops. Ive seen people with no legs and with no arms. Ive seen people that were horribly, horribly injured in that area, that war.

No, I do not consider that to be bad injuries, no, he added.

2. I didn't realize Trump was a neurosurgeon

What the hell does he know about the severity of injuries to the head and/or brain?

And of course he doesn't consider the injuries to be bad ones - they don't affect him so why should he care?

What a loathsome schmuck!

He dismisses TBI because he's in denial about his own

It's more than just a little obvious that someone dropped him on his head as a small child

7. Easy for a bonespur coward to say

He never got his fat ass in the line of fire, even when he should have. Now we take his word for what a serious injury is?

Dumpy Trumpy said Vietnam was like him having so much unprotected sex he worried about getting STDs. That was what he thought fighting in a war was like.

Heroes allowing a coward to lead them.

13. Head/brain injuries are relatively mild compared to something serious like bone spurs

a person can live without a brain, and even be elected president. But a person with bone spurs can't be expected to serve their country in any capacity, not even a non-combat office job.

18. That's why some were flown to a hospital in Franfurt. Headache. Boo-boos. Paper cuts.

Thinking about Trump gives me a headache. I'm hoping to feel better Nov 4.
