You know, Trumps father could have joined the greatest generation [View all]

But like Dick Cheney during Vietnam it seems he "had other priorities". Fred was born in 1904 just like Henry Fonda who joined the navy and served on a destroyer. While he was three years older than Jimmy Stewart who entered combat as a B17 bomber pilot, he was also three years younger than Clark Gable whose wife Carole Lombard was killed in an airplane crash while on a war bond tour. Gable responded by joining up and becoming an aerial gunner over Germany. Hitler put a bounty on his head. But Fred had other priorities as a developer building military housing and after the war was over and the other guys ran back to suck at Hollywood's teat poor Fred had to endure investigations of war profiteering that continued until 1954. Poor, poor Fred Trump...no wonder his kid hates warriors!
