Words fail me.

But, wow, soldiers who have been hurt look bad for a President?

They should be embraced, not shunned.

And that is all I can say without seeing me comment turned into a field of ---- --- --- - -- -------- ----!

OK, now I understand why Republicans who are so loyal to fmr Pres Trump didn't want to pass legislation to help our veterans.

Since those Republicans are bound to the Cult of Trump, supporting veterans looks bad for Republicans.

I'm certain he only like troops that weren't wounded.

As stated, those were suckers.

Even with my hatred of Military industrialized hypocrisy, I think think the wounded warrior adds a dash of can't always be the tin foilers leading the parade. We should get all of the woundeds and parade them around at every last parade.

What a ghastly person.

What do you expect from the man who said "He's not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured" about John McCain? Trump has never cared about anyone other than Trump and if you think otherwise then you are a sucker and a loser.

Actually his fat ass, moobs and vagina neck make him look bad.

The rat on top of his fat head makes him look ridiculous.

I have NO more capacity for amazement or shock at anything TFG does or says. I have become comfortably numb. Wake me when weed's legal.

Wounded vets (purple heart recipients?) don't make Trumpy look bad.

Trumpy does a fine job of that all by his hateful self.

Fact. Effeminate narcissistic men such as Trump and Josh Hawley always fear looking weak.

The demented orange pedo thought waddling up the steps of Air Force One with ------ toilet paper stuck to his shoe was a good look.

For years there was an old man who sat in front of the local department store.

He had a nice Purple Heart on his hat and Prosthetics where his hand should have been.

The cup he clutched had nothing written on it and he said nothing he simply sat there in a folding chair for hours on end and people dutifully came by and gave money to a man who our politicians failed.

Wounded veterans don't make politicians look bad, politicians Wars make veterans look bad.

Trump is a coward. His entire existence is fear.

Entirely right. Herein find the rot of his desperate need for attention and adulation. Without constant narcissistic supplies, he's an infant off the teat, bawling in terror.

The man alternates between hate and feat like a light switch. So, interestingly, do his followers.

How insecure, paranoid, and vainly narcissistic do you have to be to not want to be around your nation's wounded warriors? It's an opportunity for presidential compassion, resolve, and responsibility. You know, leadership things. Concepts lost to the the Trumpuppets.
