ALERT: Vets and Donald don’t much like each other…

Earlier today I saw a parade of stories come floating through my feeds telling me of different Veterans groups that didn’t much appreciate being played as a useful idiot in the Donald Trump Reality Show. I grasp their concerns and understand how they will be needing to work with any incoming administration to improve the plight of those who have served us so faithfully in uniform.

Both of my grandfathers served in the NAVY in the big war. I had several uncles in the Air Force. A few distant cousins in the Marines, and one I believe who even served Army.

My mother’s father had long lasting injuries sustained from his service and was afforded care and help from the government as a Disabled Veteran.

Through all the years and administrations I remember him talking about his experiences with Veterans’ Affairs or the VA as something he was grateful for.

With the recent revelations of how the Obama administration allowed the conditions for our heroes to deteriorate much like he is disintegrating our service vehicles–ships and planes especially–it has turned my stomach that veterans are going through such pain.

But when Mr. Trump decided to use the veterans to get back at a network that wouldn’t bend and capitulate to his tantrums…

Let’s just say we can all understand why Iowans are abandoning him like flies, and why veterans felt used.

These were my thoughts before I ever even glanced at this piece. I don’t much read the particular outlet often, but its arguable to try make the case with straight face that he has always been “pro-vet.” At least from the veterans who were around him the most.

Trumper Tantrums

He just couldn’t do it.

It betrays the dignity of a person’s manhood to be as insecure as one Donald Trump.

Earlier today he took to Twitter. (Something I would advise his staff to back away from immediately.) The tone, tactic, and general topics of what he tweets tends towards the inane.

He wants to be the leader of the free world but talks in tweets at a 3rd grade level.

Fresh off using Sarah Palin’s endorsement, gaining the SNL parodied cold open from it, and referring to Glenn Beck as a crying fool, he decided to return his sights to Megyn Kelly who will be oneĀ of the moderators this coming Thursday at the final debate before Iowa votes (and he will in all likelihood lose his very first test–after bragging about how he only wins:)

Fox News responded calling him out as more or less a media con man attempting to boost his own ratings–so they thanked him. (Genius!)

But a thought crossed my mind in the process…

Not only does the man barely embody behavior that would emulate the dignity of being a President, but how can he stake a claim to being ready to take on the fierce enemies around the world when he whines to Roger Ailes about Megyn Kelly being too mean?

Seriously it’s almost like he’s acting like he can’t possibly BE the commander in chief and he’s just daring the voters to stop him…

One more week and Iowans will prove someone right… But who… That remains the question.
