ya, he's a real prince.



on Howard Stern he told a story about an old man falling from the stage during a benefit at his Mar-a-Lago club.


.“I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away,”

Trump said. “I didn’t want to touch him … he’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible.

You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it.

It changed color. Became very red.

And you have this poor guy, 80 years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all the rich people are turning away.

‘Oh my God! This is terrible!

This is disgusting!’

And you know, they’re turning away. Nobody wants to help the guy.”

Trump said that Marines at the benefit came to the aid of the fallen man, and the future president kicked into action.

“I was saying, ‘Get that blood cleaned up! It’s disgusting!’ ” said Trump.

“The next day, I forgot to call to say he’s okay.”

How so?
A brave or heroic act implies that there is a great risk or cost associated with the act.
Loss of life. Loss of something major.

What does a 70 year old billionaire have to lose?

I don't see the bravery or heroism there.


Bravery takes many forms, not just risking ones life.

But what risk does a 70 year old billionaire have by running for office?
Nothing heroic about it.


So in your opinion what was brave or heroic about it?

Shouldn't throw that term out for everything. Like everything else it will lose meaning

I always find it very brave when a person speaks up for what they really believe and does something about it, at great cost and despite the obvious and very public backlash, they know they will receive. That's quite apart from standing up to countless death threats and just continuing on. Not for the weak-kneed.

I'm surprised his heel spurs didn't stop him intervening. They were bad enough to get him out of the draft when other people's kids went over to bleed out in Vietnam.

Deferment for bone spurs in the feet is not draft dodging.



Not on paper, no.

Reminds me of an uncle of mine who got discharged after two years in the Army for having flat feet. On paper, he had flat feet. In reality, he was bored so he moved and shaked and greased some palms so he'd be free to leave and join the Navy.

I'm surprised your Stil promoting fake news. Heel spurs would not get him a medical discharge. They are a temporary condition at best it would have bought him 3 to 6 months before he was back in lottery.

The archive from Philly.com:

That's OUR president!



And yet the only NAMED witness said
"Kathleen Romeo, a 16-year-old student at St. Michael's Academy in Manhattan, said cries of "There's Trump!" went through the crowd of onlookers when the erstwhile deal maker emerged from his limousine in front of a Smiler's deli.

"A lot of people were surprised that he got out to see what was happening," Romeo said, adding that the bat-wielder ran off just before Trump actually appeared, and that Trump, "just looked around and went back into his limo.""

Sounds like Trump got out to gawk at someone bleeding on the sidewalk and then left.



But another witness, who asked not to be identified, supported Trump's tale.


Hmmm...Trump's tale?
Trump's tale?

Apparently Trump was the one who gave the hero narrative to hack journalist James Rosen back in the day.



But another witness, who asked not to be identified, supported Trump's tale


No doubt a call from "John Miller" or "John Barron".

You guys are just awesome with your Trump worship!

your post is fake news.



The diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

Yes, like his strongly held belief that he should bang porn stars after one of his wives give birth.

1y was temporary 1f was permanent thanks for proving my point lol.

So now that we established his bone spurs were a temporary condition and didn't prevent him from entering lottery draft you going to apologize to trump?

What an absolutely ridiculous topic.

Good for Trump if he scared a mugger back in the 90's, regardless of which version of the story is true. But I'm not seeing how that validates what he said about running in to the school.

Most people in that room would not have run in to that school and most likely neither would have Trump. He is talking out of his ass and I find it amusing that there are so many brainwashed fanboys on a website full of people that claim to be enlightened.

"That's my president"...

Oh, how cute.

Idiots.



not that I expect the slightest hint of #ing honesty here, but what exactly, (EXACTLY) did Trump say about going into that School?

All 1-Y's were reentered into the draft pool in 70 or 71. I don't remember which.

Also, a 2-S university deferment was not at all uncommon. You're talking about millions or tens of millions of college students.

Also, questioning a medical deferment is pretty funny from the side of the aisle producing Bill Clinton's shady draft history and Bernie's conscientious objector move.

I wonder if:

“you don’t know until you test it.” But he said he believed he would have exhibited bravery “even if I didn’t have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would have done that, too.”

www.nytimes.com...

is the same as:

Trump says he would have run into Florida school without a weapon

www.nbcnews.com...

Good thing the MSM and liberals are sofaking honest.
