Borrowed Valor: Trump Says He ‘Always Wanted’ The Purple Heart – Dodged The Draft 5 Times (VIDEO)

Donald Trump Has No Shame

Donald Trump can’t seem to stop insulting the military or its veterans. But now he can add hypocrisy on top of his insults.

In the midst of a battle with a Gold Star family, and just a day after the New York Times published a scathing breakdown of Trump’s shady military deferment record during Vietnam, Trump has gotten hold of a Purple Heart and is now using it as a campaign prop.

Holding the Purple Heart aloft during a campaign stop in Ashburn, Virginia, Trump said that a veteran had approached him earlier and given him the medal. Trump then bragged about how simple it was to get his Purple Heart.

“I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.”

Yes, getting a Purple Heart without suffering a wound, or even ever serving one’s country in the United States Armed Forces, is certainly an easy way to get one. After all, the Purple Heart is a medal awarded in the name of the President only to those who were wounded or killed while serving.

Earning a Purple Heart no light matter. And it’s not something you pass off as your own without ever earning it. And certainly the very bounds of hypocrisy broke the moment Donald Trump held one aloft and inferred that it was his own.

Just Call Him Donald ‘Multiple Deferments’ Trump

If Trump had wanted a Purple Heart so badly, perhaps he should have said no to any one of the five deferments he received — four for education, and one for bone spurs in his heels. Those bone spurs, Trump himself admitted, were “very minor.” But Trump never served. And it’s doubtful the bone spurs were what stopped him. After all, those bone spurs didn’t stop Donald from playing sports throughout college. But once he graduated, and was no longer eligible for his multiple education deferments, his bone spurs really must have flared up. After all, they resulted in the coveted 1-Y medical deferment, which exempted Donald from all military service.

Trump received that deferment in 1968, just as the United States deployed a huge number of troops to Southeast Asia and inducted 300,000 men into the military.

Donald Trump was not one of them.

A Rundown Of Donald’s Military ‘Experience’

Donald Trump is the man who said sleeping around while avoiding sexually transmitted diseases was his “own personal Vietnam.”

This is the man who likened his time spent as a rich kid in a military academy to actually serving in the military.

Trump is the man who dismissed John McCain’s heroism by stating he was only a hero because he had been captured, and he preferred guys who didn’t get caught.

This is the man told a grieving Gold Star family that he has made sacrifices, too — by having “tremendous success.”

This is the man who calls our military a “disaster.”

Now Trump has gotten hold of a Purple Heart and is using it as a campaign prop. He is holding a medal reserved for those wounded or killed during service and saying he has always wanted one, and then bragging about how easily he got it. Silly veterans, wasting all that time and energy and literal bloodshed for yours!

Donald Trump, no one wants a Purple Heart.

And if you had really wanted to serve, there was nothing stopping you.

Do everyone who is serving, or who have ever served, or who have ever had a loved one serve, a huge favor and just shut up about the military. You are not fit to speak about it, and you certainly are not fit to lead it, either.
