Alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump does not have a shining history of respecting anyone, really. Women, African-Americans, Muslims, and Latinos have all come into his crosshairs whenever the time seemed right. But perhaps one of the groups he’s insulted most of all is American soldiers. Who could forget the time he compared his time at an expensive boarding school to the sacrifices that others of his generation made in the Vietnam war? Or perhaps you remember his comments denigrating John McCain’s time spent in a Vietnamese POW camp?
‘He’s not a war hero. I like people who weren’t captured.’
He even engaged in a famous war on social media with the parents of Humayun Khan, an American Muslim who died serving his country in Iraq in 2004. Meanwhile, the alleged unregistered sex offender has made it a point to constantly pay lip-service to American war veterans, while refusing to do a lick of good for them until the press practically twisted his arm off.
If you thought those revelations about Donald Trump’s utter cluelessness about the sacrifices undertaken by American servicemen were bad, get ready. Because this one definitely sinks to a new, disgusting low. A clip from Howard Stern in 1997 shows Donald Trump casually comparing his sexual exploits with service in Vietnam war. He sarcastically draws a parallel between a conflict in which 60,000 Americans lost their lives in the most hellish conditions possible, to his fear of catching chlamydia in the 60s.
It’s a nasty, tactless comparison to put on the radio, but what makes it worse is that Trump himself is a draft dodger. The alleged unregistered sex offender repeatedly lied about his physical limitations to get out of serving in the Vietnam war.
If you had any doubt that this guy has no respect for anything or anyone other than himself, read this quote from the same interview.
‘I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.’
