Funny, the toilet president giving remarks about D Day. Rich, real rich.

If it was a Democrat draft dodger you can bet your sweet ass Fox News would be all over the hypocrisy.

What did Trump say in that interview with Piers Morgan? He just wasn't much of a fan of the Vietnam War, it was so far away? I mean, I'm sure if you did a poll of Veterans they would have overwhelmingly been fans of the war. It was fun you know. I get the distance thing though. You might have a bowling league on Thursday night or something you might miss out because the war was so far away.

Freaky, that tranny lover imposter president still posing as husband to a "wife". Sick, real sick.

Where's geezer hater today? After all that 93 year old who fought at D-day would probably qualify as a geezer. But some of us look at these men with the respect they deserve.

@8:38 - do you REALLY believe Melania Trump is a tranny?
I dunno, sure her nude pics are airbrushed all to hell,
but they look sort of real to me.

Such brave and selfless souls. Americans were especially exceptional since our country was not at risk but we shouldered the bulk of the sacrifice in men, economic and weapons support. We asked nothing in return as we helped to rebuild the countries of Europe.

Today, 75 years later, a generation of the same age needs coloring books, support animals and safe spaces at institutes of higher learning when they encounter an unfamiliar or unwelcome viewpoint.

^^and your worthless generation does nothing but complain all day, every day. Blah, blah, blah,. Funny how the greatest generation gave birth to the most worthless generation.

Our founding fathers considered the Atlantic Ocean one of our greatest assets. It seperated us from the every 100 year ir so wars in Europe. For some reason we have ignored this repeatedly since WW1. How stupid is that ?

9:11 - of what generation do you consider those who fought, died, were maimed and injured in endless Iraq and Afghanistan wars? War is different, complicated, and less clear cut these days but the generation leaving their blood all over the middle east is just as deserving of our respect as the generation who fought WWII.

Your comment is pathetic.

Another draft would sort out a lot of issues in this country.

So during Vietnam, this faking medical deferment-in-chief not only dodged the draft but also chose to side with Hanoi Jane, flag burning protesters, and the hippies instead of supporting the military and those drafted to fight.

Now we know why Trump always insists there are good people on both sides.

At least he didn't fondle and grope any flags today.

^^^ But he did take the opportunity on hallowed ground, in front of those graves, to insult a decorated US Marine that served in Vietnam as a fool. He also insulted the Speaker of the House as a disaster.

He did skip the church ceremony attended by Prince Charles, Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.

He did leave the UK Wednesday to stay overnight at his golf club in Ireland (at taxpayer expense) before going to France. Then went back to Ireland Thursday for more time at his golf course.

At least it didn't rain, which would have likely forced another cancellation, like Trump pulled last year in France during the WWI ceremony.

He is still a total disgrace.

Trump just defecated on the graves of WWII war heroes with his verbal diarrhea.

Shitting on veterans and their families is his jam. He also told them to wait while he ran long on finishing his insulting interview.

He should resign.
