Draft Dodger Trump (DDT)

By Donald Moskowitz

President Trump continuously bashes John McCain about various McCain positions that Trump disagrees with, which is somewhat amazing since McCain has been dead for seven months. I believe DDT wants to be in the spotlight all the time and doesn't care if he receives negative criticism about his comments.

As a former Navy enlisted and officer I am particularly perturbed with DDTs ongoing disparagement of McCain's military service. McCain was a Navy pilot who flew missions against the enemy in Vietnam, and unfortunately he was shot down and spent years in a North Vietnam prison. I believe DDT was able to dodge the draft during the Vietnam War by receiving  four draft deferments while in college and then he was deemed medically unacceptable after college because of a supposed bone spur in his heel which apparently was conjured up by DDT and his doctor. DDT skated out of military service and is no better than the draft dodgers who went to Canada during the Vietnam War.

And now as President DDT continues with his toxicity.
