The Commander-in- Chief’s Real Attitude Toward Those Who Serve Under Him
We begin with the revelations of our Commander-in-Chief’s real attitudes towards the men and women in the military serving under him along with the veteran community which were revealed in The Atlantic then confirmed by the Washington Post, the AP, The New York Times and Fox News. Having called America’s fallen “losers” and “suckers” Trump made similar disparaging and grotesquely insensitive remarks to General Kelly at the gravesite of his son at Arlington who died at the age of 29 in Afghanistan. Needless to say General Kelly has not come forward to support Trump’s claim that this is “fake news” and we speak with Lucian Truscott, a journalist and author who is a graduate of West Point and is currently a columnist for Salon where his latest article is “Cadet Bonespurs reports for duty. Down in the polls, denigrating our war dead, Trump wants a new civil war.” We discuss the comparison between Trump’s disrespect for the military but affection for the fake military of these weekend warriors and sunshine patriots with their rag-tag militias who shoot unarmed protesters and threaten Democratic governors.
