Nobody Wants One

From the Trump atrocity files, here's a new low- Donald Trump stated that he wishes he had a Purple Heart. Seeing as the Purple Heart is awarded to individuals who are wounded in battle, Donald Trump displayed a contempt of the wounded warriors he claims to support, and showcases his ignorance. This thing that he sees as a mere bauble is paid for with lost limbs, traumatic brain injuries, shattered lives.

Trump has had a weekend of gaffes and offensive comments. It's going to be a long, stupid three months.

I'd be remiss if I didn't note that this isn't the first time a Republican has made light of the Purple Heart- many 2004 Republican National Convention goers openly mocked the Purple Heart simply because John Kerry was a recipient.

If Donald Trump wanted a Purple Heart, it's because he didn't have a heart of his own.

One might ask "What was Trump thinking?" but the answer's too obvious. But really, what the hell? Does he even know why it's given?

Smart phone is like military intelligence.

Everyone here, veterans all, volunteers to make his heart purple. What? Not what he meant?
