Haha! True that Timbo.

Another component growing in popularity is cannibalism. Watching their daily feast is highly entertaining spectator sport.

When you spend most of your time like that...the oath is meaningless! Thanks for your service anyway.

Trump made up injury to dodge Vietnam service, his former lawyer testifies


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump acknowledged to advisors that he made up a fake injury to avoid military service, because “I wasn’t going to Vietnam,” his former lawyer told lawmakers during testimony on Wednesday.

Michael Cohen, who also worked as a fixer for Trump before his election, said he was tasked with tamping down criticism of the military deferment as the presidential candidate simultaneously mocked Sen. John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, for being regarded as a military hero. “I like people who weren’t captured," Trump said during a July 2015 interview.

“Mr. Trump claimed (his medical deferment) was because of a bone spur, but when I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery,” Cohen told members of the House Oversight Committee. “He told me not to answer the specific questions by reporters but rather offer simply the fact that he received a medical deferment.

“He finished the conversation with the following comment: ‘You think I'm stupid, I wasn't going to Vietnam.’”

Trump Lashes Out At McCain: 'I Like People Who Weren't Captured'
July 18, 2015


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took an ongoing feud with Sen. John McCain to a new level today, mocking the former GOP nominee for having been a prisoner of war and calling him a "loser" for failing to win the White House in 2008.

"He was a war hero because he was captured," Trump said at the 2015 Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.

"I like people who weren't captured," the current Republican front-runner told political consultant Frank Luntz, who hosted the event.

"He lost and let us down," Trump said. "I've never liked him as much after that."

"I don't like losers," the real-estate mogul, who has gone through corporate bankruptcy four times, added.

His remarks follow a salvo fired by McCain earlier this week in which he accused Trump of "firing up the crazies" — a reference to what McCain said was "a very extreme element within our Republican Party."

‘Unprincipled’ Lindsey Graham has exposed himself as ‘the worst type of politician we have come to expect’: Ex-GOP lawmaker


On MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) sharply criticized Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for reversing his prior position and deciding to launch a Senate probe of Vice President Joe Biden to deflect from impeachment.

“You can’t believe anything Lindsey Graham says,” said Jolly. “I mean, that’s the takeaway of these last three years … I’ve kind of moved on in my evaluation of Lindsey Graham. We sometimes think, oh, the principled person that Lindsey Graham used to be, but I now believe we can’t believe Lindsey Graham five years ago or ten years ago, where we used to think he was this constructively unpredictable politician, he’s actually the unprincipled Republican we’ve come to expect. He just did a better job of hiding it.”
