My take on this...
I've been digging into it, and while there doesn't seem to be any clear proof, it appears that Trump's comments were taken out of context. I think what he said was more like He knew what he signed up for, but he put the uniform on anyway and did his duty.
Granted, not the best way to say it, and Trump seems to have a habit of wording things poorly.
I think what he probably meant was more like He knew the dangers, yet he put his bravery and patriotism above his own safety and served his country with distinction.
A lot of politicians make gaffs. Dubya and Joe Biden come to mind. But yeah, Trump is the king of it.
I think we should be at least equally outraged at the congresswoman who made all this public. It was totally inappropriate for her to do that, as well as insensitive to the family of the deceased. What she should have done was to go to Trump privately and told him she thought he was an anal orifice. But no, she latched onto the opportunity to politicize this and become a bigshot within the party. She put party politics over common decency. Shame on her!!
But as usual, you who worship the political left have gleefully jumped on the bandwagon just to have something else to slam the guy you hate over. And in doing so, you are helping to add anger and stress to an already grieving family. I am truly disgusted by the hate and nastiness in politics today.
Well I don't think I give two ****s in the wind what your interpretation of what 45 said is. He said what he said and he didn't care enough to be clear or even use the fallen soldier's name. You know why? It wasn't about the fallen soldiers it was about Trump.
If 45 needs citizens to interpret what he said, why not just stfu and follow SOP and have the professionals speak for him since he obviously lacks an ability to functionally communicate using the English language.
While we're at it, can we revise what the Congress Women said so it is more soothing to the ears. What I think the Congresswoman meant to say was... Wait, she said what she meant to say. If she goes to 45 privately, he grabs her by the pu**y and tells her she is speaking out of turn and nothing changes.
Personally, I think you give the Congresswoman too much credit. She has never really been on the national stage before so to say she used this as an opportunity to propel herself to national prominence is a steaming pile of dung.
