The Laddie Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks (UPDATED, MANY TIMES!)

Cadet Bone Spurs

The story in the Atlantic landed a solid punch on Lord Damp Nut’s glass jaw, and he’s as frantic as a beagle in a vacuum factory trying to cover his ample ass.

Lord Damp Nut last night…

…Lord Damp Nut to NPR in July 2015:

“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.

Our Pals over at Electoral Vote found some polling a couple of days before this story broke:

More significantly, however, is that this could really hurt the President with active-duty service members. There are few people who have more finely-tuned BS detectors than soldiers do; they surely know what’s true here and what’s not. Further, soldiers network and talk to one another. We checked a few online spaces that attract current or former military members, and these remarks were a topic of great interest—and not to the President’s benefit. Two days ago, a poll by The Military Times revealed that 41.3% of active-duty soldiers planned to vote for Joe Biden, while 37.4% planned to vote for Trump. This is very poor for a sitting Republican president, and the new reporting from The Atlantic certainly isn’t going to help the President close the gap.

We always bring receipts, Lord Damp Nut, you should know by now that we’re on to you.

UPDATE 1: The WaPo confirms that Cadet Bone Spurs referred to fallen U.S. troops as “losers” and “suckers.”

In one account, the president told senior advisers that he didn’t understand why the U.S. government placed such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserved what they got, according to a person familiar with the discussion.


UPDATE 3: Related? USA Today

In a heretofore unpublicized recent memo, the Pentagon delivered an order to shutter Stars and Stripes, a newspaper that has been a lifeline and a voice for American troops since the Civil War. The memo orders the publisher of the news organization (which now publishes online as well as in print) to present a plan that “dissolves the Stars and Stripes” by Sept. 15 including “specific timeline for vacating government owned/leased space worldwide.”

“The last newspaper publication (in all forms) will be September 30, 2020,” writes Col. Paul Haverstick Jr., the memo’s author.

UPDATE 4: A repeat of a perennial lie:

Signed in 2014, which means… The Kenyan Usurper signed it into law, not Lord Damp Nut!

UPDATE 5: Nieman Labs sees the same connection as us –

UPDATE 6: He’s losing Fox News!

    There isn’t a single third rail in American politics that this shitheel doesn’t dance on. This is even more high-voltage than Social Security and Medicare. I hope it burns him to his bone spurs.

    As a vet myself, this makes me loathe him even more (if that’s possible).

      And I would add: many of these police officers he’s been cultivating during the unrest are veterans as well. This is just what might clue them in to what Il Douche really thinks of those who serve, in any capacity.

      Oh, I do look forward to the flocks of chickens coming home to roost.
      In the skunk rug atop his head, I hope.

    Censoring/shutting down the Service’s favorite newsrag will not sit well with most, I’ll wager. But it’s right there on Page 1 of the Dictator’s Manual: silence the opposition, while promoting your own vainglorious praises.

    I look forward to the pretzel logic Kayleigh McEnany uses to explain away this flaming bag of poo. I just hope that the history of Stars & Stripes will show they began under the first republican president and ended under the last.

    “I don’t like losers,” the corporate mogul, who wants to keep statues of Confederate generals in public parks and their names on military bases, lied.

    So he apparently heard too much pushback?
    And now he’s not cutting funding for S&S?
