Yes, it is nice to see him finally get the medal he fought so hard for.

A real hero who has made real sacrifices and suffered real pain. American need more heroes like him to make it great again.

But I have to say that the purple heart never seemed like a real medal, so I suppose you can argue this sets it's real worth.

His quote is really nauseating

"I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier," Trump said.

Crom, the guy is an idiot. It never ceases to amaze me how some people can be so successful and be such utter clueless wastes of carbon.

They were born wealthy and are not brain dead.

Also how many times has he fucked over other people by declaring bankruptcy?

If I had no scruples and morals I would be more successful.

Perhaps the veteran should have wounded Trump in some way before he handed over the medal. You know, to make it more legit.

The more I think about this the more my cringing makes my face hurt. In the light of the Khan thing, could he have said anything more tone deaf?

To add insult to injury, and might qualify him for a bronze star, he ate caviar once that wasn't even from a sturgeon! It was fake! Oh the freakin' humanity!

I think it nicely reflects his real level of sacrifice and service.

It is fake, and so is he.

How does Trump do it, he owns you people and the media. It's all people are talking about.

Hillary has to pay to get on the air, Donny gets it for free.

This is the by far the most fun election we will ever see in our lifetime.

Because he's a joke, and it's fun to take the piss out of him?

Or maybe

It's becasue he represents (to use a paraphrase) he represents the unacceptable face of narcissistic celebrity capitalism. He represents the self absorbed spooled rich wankers who thinks the world revolves around them and think that becasue they have to walk 10 yards to get to a lift they know what hard work is.

People find not just him, but the attitudes and values he represents as nauseating, but also ridicules.

Also look at how much you and your ilk bang on about Hillary and E-mails and Benghazi and ask yourself why, maybe Donny is sen by as in the same light.

It's the veteran's right to give his purple heart to Trump.

I'm too biased to judge Trump for accepting it. I'm not sure how I would feel if it were Obama.

But it's unprecedented as far as I can tell and Trump really shouldn't have said, "I always wanted a purple heart" because we know there is no way he would have ever taken the actions needed to EARN one and that makes his statement repellent.

Some famous people who DID earn their purple hearts.

http://mentalfloss.com/article/12265/8-famous-people-purple-...

Quote:
1. Charles Bronson
tail gunner in a B-29
2. James Garner
in the Army - two purple hearts.
3. James Arness
As a 6'7" rifleman first off the boat to test the water depth shot in the right leg.
4. Kurt Vonnegut
Despite being one of the few american survivors of the dresden bombing, his purple heart was for a "ludicrously negligible wound" related to frostbite.
5. James Jones
Served in the 25th Infantry and was wounded on Guadalcanal, earning him a Purple Heart.
6. Rod Serling
He was put into one of the most dangerous platoons in the area, nicknamed “the death squad” for the high number of casualties suffered in the group. Serling was lucky enough not to be killed in combat, but he hardly came out unscathed. He was injured a few times in battle, but more dramatic was the severe trauma he experienced by serving in such a violent area. As a result, he was plagued by nightmares and flashbacks for the rest of his life.
7. Ronald Lawrence Kovic
injured, while leading his squad through an open area of land. Kovic was first shot in the right foot and then through the right shoulder, which left him paralyzed from the chest down. He received a Bronze Star with "V" device for valor and a Purple Heart for his service.
8. Oliver Stone
willingly signed up for the Armed Forces, dropping out of Yale to do so, and even requested combat duty in Vietnam. Stone was injured twice in the war and received the Purple Heart after he was shot in the neck. The man has stones!
Bonus!
Sergeant Stubby!
the most decorated dog of WWI. Stubby received his Purple Heart for an injury caused by shrapnel from a German grenade..


And then there's Trump to whom a purple heart is a neat collectable.
I think I just threw up a little bit.

I agree. It's been great fun so far in a nihilist kind of way

People always slow down to look at car crashes.

My dog sometimes wipes her ass on the lawn, and sometimes eats her own vomit. She licks her own asshole on a regular basis.

I realize she does this because she's a dog.

Trump doesn't have the same excuse, so it's frankly amazing to watch.

On a serious note my father died as a result of his service but never got a Purple Heart.
Richard Charles Hudson* 1936 to 1999 served as a nuclear bomb tech in the USAF from 1953-1957. Every day he tested the circuits and replaced parts on Mark 5 warheads.




He died of brain cancer in 1999 at age 62. I have his coffin flag and wrapped inside is a vial of spent uranium from inside the bomb casings.

Trump can go fuck himself.


*That's the "RC" of rcbevco

P.S. He volunteered and wasn't drafted.

This is why the British armed forces don't award wound medals, because you get so many problems working out who deserves one. Trump will have to learn there is a big difference between owning something and being awarded it. Since he rates sacrifice in terms of paying money, he might never learn the lesson though.
