Donald Trump’s military school peers are now speaking out in response to his disgraceful insults against our troops.
A bombshell report published by The Atlantic cited multiple sources who have confirmed that Trump expressed disdain for 1,800 fallen US Marines who are buried at a World War I cemetery in France by calling them “losers” and “suckers”. For that reason, and not the official reason of rainy weather, Trump refused to attend a ceremony honoring them.
Trump also insulted disabled veterans by refusing to include them in his military parade plans because he is disgusted by their war wounds.
And these remarks are apparently just the tip of the iceberg.

Veterans and active-duty troops responded in outrage at Trump’s behavior. And even Trump’s former superior at the New York Military Academy is blasting him.
“No, those remarks absolutely didn’t surprise me. In my dealings with him, he was a heartless, obnoxious son of a bitch,” 74-year-old George M. White told Foreign Policy’s Michael Hirsh, going on to note that Trump disrespected military traditions and sacrifice at the school, preferring the grandeur of parades and medals more than anything else.
Trump merely played pretend soldier at school the same way he’s playing pretend president now, White said.
“I went into the U.S. Army during Vietnam in 1968. I served a tour in Korea. When I got into basic training I realized very quickly that at the New York Military Academy, we were just play-acting. What we had been taught was a sort of surface military thing,” he said.
Indeed, Trump dodged the draft five times to avoid service while real heroes like White and the late-Senator John McCain entered the military to serve.
And while Trump is still hiding his school grades, a former military school classmate remembers how bad of a student Trump was, adding more credence to Mary Trump’s claim that her uncle Donald paid someone to take his SAT exams for him.
“One of the things that struck me was I don’t recall him being a good student at all,” Sandy McIntosh said. “I was two years younger than him, and he asked me to go over his essays for him and improve them. It was the only time I got to see the nature of his disability. I think his grades were mostly in the D-plus or C-minus range.”
So, Trump is a moron as well as disrespectful to the men and women who have sacrificed in the fight to keep our nation free. He’s the worst commander in chief ever and does not deserve the military’s loyalty.
