    Wow, just wow. My first thought was ''Houston we have a problem", as I looked swiftly around for an eject button.

    My second was we've just stumbled inadvertently upon a completely new political animal. Revisionist Conservative (rev con) anyone?
    FDR was a democrat.

    All these political threads and you still do not understand the dynamics of US politics?

    You really don't understand US politics.

    Most of these are not politicians. And most will have served on his campaign staff or supported his electoral bid in one way or another.

    Those were all legal proceedings, not protests.

    2) You do realize that 'military' schools of that type are simply schools with a theme and uniforms, right? They have nothing to do with the US military in any form or fashion, unless they have a senior ROTC program.

    3) He received a student deferment, same as Slick Willie. There was no threat of the draft for the wealthy in the 60s.

    4) Most if called on what?

    5) Democrats don't serve, so why is it an issue that Trump did not? The point is heckling Trump for what every Democrat since Carter did could mean you are a hypocrite.
    1) So what? This was WWI. They asked him to serve to help and he did. You got a problem with FDR, the New Deal or anything else he did?

    2) Yes, my OP was in Trump's defense, that he had been in uniform when folks had contended he hadn't.

    3) Some wealthy lads did go, these were 2 who didn't.

    4) To serve, I assume in your OP you meant their country, but you could surprise me and say it was to do something else.

    5) I didn't say it was an issue. Someone said he'd never been in uniform, but he has and let's be fair to him on that score.

    Next you'll be complaining when someone says they saw him wandering naked and disoriented down 5th Avenue, and I said it couldn't be so because he was too busy at home trying to hammer together a cabinet.

    In 2008 Obama ran and you had ZERO problems with his lack of military service. Now suddenly you find it important....

    I'm sorry, was that 2008 reverie supposed to HELP your argument?
    Really? Find a post where I said I was okay with Obama's lack of service. I'll wait.

    So my point stands. Your side vilified Obama and Clinton, especially Clinton, for their lack of service and yet now you're okay with the douche bag's lack of service. Another example of hypocrisy from you. (not really surprising considering the source)

    No, but Dev Don was all happy to prance around New York Military Academy getting 2 Neatness and Order medals and playing a whole load of sports, only to get a medical deferment for bad feet when threatened with the draft. If you want to compare him to Clinton for draft dodging, be my guest.

    Neither Bobo nor Slick Willie served. Bush Sr and JFK were the only combat veterans in office since Truman. FDR never served.

    And, of course the Hillibeast never served.

    1) But Trump? HE MUST SERVE.

    I wonder how many of those whining about Trump's military record actually served themselves....
