Active service members unhappy with Trump????? Biggest lie ever.

^^^ Sure the military times is making it all up. The report just shows his numbers falling slighting. The problem with Trumpers is that they deny the facts and try to invent their own reality. The President is Impeached. His legacy has been ruined. He is now tarnished. Live with it. It's reality. Sorry but the facts are more important than your feelings.

The Military Times poll doesn't offer much encouragement to those basement Commandos threatening a Civil War over Trump, does it?

Good luck holding a poor quality semiautomatic M-16 clone when a Bradley roars down on your ass, Cletus!

Taking out a loan to fix up a property? Dont they know they can steal tax money for that?

Trump faked a medical condition to dodge the draft, publicly ridicules Gold Star families, insults the widow of fallen Army Ranger, mocks POWs as dumb for getting caught, skips WWII ceremonies in France because it's raining, holds an interview in a WWII military cemetery to insult his political opponents, skips a trip to Arlington on Veterans Day, used grieving families pain from Dover to tell their confidential and graphic experiences about returning remains at his rallies, deployed troops away from their families to the southern border last Christmas for a fake emergency, diverted funds from projects earmarked for solders housing, schools and other on base improvements for his border wall, pardoned unrepentant US soldiers convicted of war crimes undermining military discipline, lies about ending overseas deployments, orders troops to stand over oil fields in the middle east, offers to sell US deployments to the Saudis to guard their oil facilities, and steals money from Wounded Warrior charities.

Gee, I can't image why Trump's support has dropped among the troops.

I wonder which units had time in their schedules to kick their feet up and browse through the latest "hot off the presses" edition of military times to the poll section. Maybe next month's question will be "are you compatible with your CO? take this survey to find out!!!"
