Last night, we learned that Donald Trump called Army service members like my brother Peter Rich, who died for his country in Vietnam, “losers”.
The Atlantic magazine, with at least four independent witnesses, reported the following:
“When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne – Marne Cemetery near Paris in 2018…because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead. ‘Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.’ Trump referred to the more than 1,800 Marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as ‘suckers’ for getting killed.”
“When John McCain died in August 2018, Trump told staff: ‘We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral’ and he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff.”
“Trump referred to former President George H.W. Bush as a ‘loser’ for being shot down by the Japanese as a Navy pilot in WWII.”
My Congressman Seth Moulton responded: “This is the first time I actually feel sad for Donald Trump. Because this is just so pathetic. I mean he’s clearly sick. He’s proven to us that he’s disloyal. He is a traitor.”
Joe Biden said last night : “If I have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief, I will ensure that our American heroes know that I have their back and honor their sacrifice — always.”
Peter was my best friend. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal for “heroism in ground combat” and the Purple Heart for “wounds received in action resulting in his death.” He had more patriotism in his fingernail than the disgusting, increasingly mad man occupying the people’s house has in all of his cowardly spurs.
If this is what Trump thinks about those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country what does he think about you?
