New, from : Trump skipped a visit to an American military cemetery in France after calling the dead "losers" for getting killed: Full story here
Donald Trump, in a White House meeting, asked that a military parade exclude wounded veterans, because "nobody wants to see" amputees. My story here
1/ President Trump, who never served in the military, canceled a 2018 visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
9/9 We owe it not only to those who have served and sacrificed for our nation, but to ourselves and to succeeding generations to vote him out.
Last year, a former four star general & colleague who worked directly for Trump said to me, “Donald Trump is the most loathsome individual I ever met.” Trump’s attitudes & behavior toward America’s heroes are repugnant. Vote him out, resoundingly.
Not one source. Four sources "with firsthand knowledge" say he said this
I've read almost every word written about Trump's horrible nature. I'm an anthropologist of his shitty worldview. This article is the nadir of it all.
Your periodic reminder that Donald Trump called President George H.W. Bush a "loser" for getting shot down by the Japanese in World War II
I’m one of the pilots that got shot down. Our Commander-in-Chief thinks that makes me a loser. He thinks the many friends I lost & soldiers I medevac'd were suckers. This is disgraceful. is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.
Breaking via The Atlantic: Trump canceled a visit to a U.S. military cemetery in France in 2018 because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he didn't believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people.
General Kelly’s son Robert is buried in Section 60 of Arlington. He was 29. Trump, while standing by Robert Kelly’s grave, turned directly to his father and said, “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”
Some wow reporting from —> Trump called dead Marines buried at Belleau Wood “losers” and “suckers” for getting killed, and asked aides who the “good guys” were in World War I
President Trump, who never served in the military, canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” reports
"In a conversation with senior staff members ... Trump said, 'Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.' In a separate conversation ... Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives.. as 'suckers' for getting killed."
Um, wow. What a read.
Trump to senior aides when John McCain (hero, statesman) died: “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral.” When flags were lowered at White House, Trump fumed: “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.” Via
“According to sources with knowledge of the president’s views, he seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military.”
The opening to the much-discussed Atlantic article, and the same events as described in John Bolton's memoir.
Donald Trump says he's still upset by story in which I reported that he stood over the Arlington grave of Marine 1st Lt. Robert Kelly and asked his then-chief of staff, Lt. Kelly's grieving father, "I don’t get it. What was in it for them?"
I want to our cemeteries as supreme Allied Commander of NATO sacred shrines to those who have given everything. The phrase: “shocking if true” is getting worn out. Lack of denial from my friends Generals Kelly and Mattis suggest the shock is well placed.
“Trump said, ‘Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.’ In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as ‘suckers’ for getting killed.”
Of all the astonishing details in this story, the kicker may be the one that sticks with me the longest:
Is there anyone who doubts even a little that Trump would have been on Hitler's side in WW2?
There has NEVER been a more disrespectful and ARROGANT president. How DARE a man who dodged the draft five times have the audacity to disparage those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Get out of our house!
Atlantic: When McCain died...Trump told sr staff, according to 3 sources... “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral” ...he became furious...when he saw flags lowered to half-staff. “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.”
Imagine being unable to process the very concept of service and sacrifice. Now imagine that person is the President of the United States. President Trump disgraces the title of commander in chief each day he is in office.
I was a Vietnam-era military kid. This story horrifies me more than I can say.
Big mistake of Elia Kazan movie "A Face in the Crowd" was the naive assumption that the demagogue would lose fans when he was recorded expressing contempt for them.
“Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
The president, who never served in the military, canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
Remember, pundits: If you say Real Americans will be outraged by this, you are an elitist who still doesn’t get it. But if you say Real Americans don’t care about this at all, you have real respect for them.
John Kelly was visiting the grave of his son, Robert, who was 29 when he died in combat in Afghanistan. Standing there by Robert’s grave, President Trump turned to Kelly, then the DHS secretary, and said: “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”
3/ When Senator John McCain died in August 2018, Trump reportedly told his senior staff, “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral.”
2/ The remark is one of several new revelations about Trump’s seeming contempt for military service, reports
4/ Why does Trump seem to disdain military service? “He has a lot of fear,” one officer with firsthand knowledge of Trump’s views said. “He doesn’t see the heroism in fighting.”
This is beyond sickening.
This, from Donald "Bone Spurs" Trump: "Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers” referring to America's war dead resting in Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris. His concern? "He feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain."
Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’
I didn’t think ⁦⁩ could shock me anymore. I was wrong. This story, oh my Lord.
.: After died, said, "We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral.” He became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff. “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser”
This is devastating detail upon detail, ending with this: Trump has asked his staff not to include wounded veterans in military parades, on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees. “Nobody wants to see that,” he said.
don't just retweet it--read the story; it isn't long. By my read, he has 3-4 sources for each quote. I see MAGA trolls denying what he reported. General Kelly could confirm at least one of the quotes. He should.
Bigger picture: The message this sends to adversaries, that Trump has such disregard for his own military, will only embolden them. The message it sends to our allies, will only validate what they already fear: They are on their own.
Quite a piece by The president, who never served in the military, canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

Trump, standing at the Arlington grave of John Kelly's son on Memorial Day, reportedly said: "I don’t get it. What was in it for them?"
I can't imagine a more bedrock value of conservatism than honoring our war dead.
I still manage to be shocked by him. And the continued silence of the is deafening. The draft-dodging president canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

5/5 While Trump took great interest in staging a military parade in D.C., sources say he rejected the idea of such a parade including wounded veterans, because “nobody wants to see that.”

Let's face it, he is a chicken shit loser and sadly nothing he says can shock me. Because of that, my shock and anger is directed at his Senate and Cabinet enablers. They are responsible for him. Doing nothing now is not an option. Fire .
Donald Trump has no honor. He debases and poisons whatever he touches. He serves no one and nothing but himself. He will be remembered as a failed, one term president and relegated to the dustbin of history. #TrumpIsANationalDisgrace

For those still supporting Trump, how do you justify his abominable contempt for our fallen soldiers? Do you too believe they were “losers” and “suckers?” Are you too disgusted by our troops disfigured by war while in our service? ARE YOU LIKE HIM?!
I cannot get over how hard this hit me.
MAJOR BREAKING NEWS: Trump Called American Soldiers Killed in Action "Losers" and "Suckers" and Said He Could Not Understand Why the United States Fought with the Allies in World War II; Vote for Trump Now—Knowing He Believes This—and You Endorse His Views
“In a 2018 White House planning meeting for such an event, Trump asked his staff not to include wounded veterans, on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees. ‘Nobody wants to see that,’ he said.”
I come from a family of veterans, and I was appalled by these remarks. SC has a proud military tradition and this shows a fundamental lack of appreciation for our servicemembers. Our elected leaders must put partisanship aside and condemn these comments.

“He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there’s no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There’s no money in serving the nation.”
He got a doctor’s note to dodge Vietnam. He said nothing when Putin threatened our troops. Now, we find out thinks our war dead are “losers.” I never want to hear another Republican lecture me about patriotism ever again.
“In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as ‘suckers’ for getting killed.”
All veterans service organizations have an obligation to defend their members and protest he president’s language. This is beyond reproach.
When Trump insulted McCain, "there was no precedent in US politics for the expression of this sort of contempt." Then he attacked parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq. Then, as President, he called marines who died at Belleau Wood in 1918 “suckers.”
I just read this article. I thought I couldn't be more appalled at Trump than I already was, but this got to me.
Despicable and - unfortunately - completely unsurprising.
“Trump believes talented people who don’t pursue riches are ‘losers’. After a briefing given by the then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joe Dunford, Trump turned to aides and said, ‘That guy is smart. Why did he join the military?’”
BREAKING: Trump says Americans who die in war are "losers" and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades. In the name of all that is good and holy, please vote for #BidenHarris2020
This President has zero respect for the men and women he asks to risk life and limb on behalf of our country. Utterly disgraceful. 
Had to read this ⁦⁩ story one more time to make sure. Yep: This is a portrait of the most vile man ever to serve as president.
. story about disparaging remarks about dead and injured veterans, has now been confirmed by , , and now,
Even by the standards set by previous american presidents, Trump is an incredibly horrible human being.
Find 10 minutes and read this. My god.....
Devastating from : “The president believes that nothing is worth doing without the promise of monetary payback, and that talented people who don’t pursue riches are ‘losers’”
1/ If you didn’t read story by last night, please read it now: Even if you already read it, read it again. Of course Trump denies it, but track record is that his denials are always false. And these quotes are consistent..

There's a lot in this story, but the contempt for the *intelligence* of people who choose to serve in the military really stood out to me:

This is really horrific. The Atlantic >> Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’
Anyway, here's the blockbuster report from Jeff detailing the president's callousness with regard to military sacrifice. Read it. Consider the context. Scrutinize the author. Think critically about who his sources are. It passes every smell test.
The Associated Press and also a Fox News correspondent have now confirmed the Atlantic magazine’s story that Donald Trump refused to go to an American WW1 cemetery because the fallen soldiers buried there were ‘losers’ & ‘suckers’.
Trump said Americans who died in war are “losers” and “suckers”, wanted wounded veterans kept out of military parades.
On lit souvent des papiers ahurissants sur le président Trump, mais cette enquête, signée par le directeur du vénérable magazine va vous faire tomber de votre chaise. Et la scène d’ouverture se passe à Paris.
It’s not just that he didn’t know which countries fought in WWI, it’s that he didn’t even bother to ask until he landed in Europe and was already attending events commemorating WWI.
"According to sources, the president seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military." Via
“Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.” EXTRAORDINARY piece.
Trump’s disparagement of John McCain was not an aberration. It comes as no surprise that someone who has dedicated his entire life to self-interest cannot comprehend service and sacrifice.
.: The president, who never served in the military, canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
Share this with every vet you know. According to 4 witnesses, on his 2018 WWI centennial trip, Trump refused to visit a French cemetery of U.S. dead “because he feared his hair would become disheveled and because ‘it’s filled with losers’” and “suckers.”
Trump asked aides, “Who were the good guys in this war?” He said that he didn’t understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the Allies. ⁦TheAtlantic⁩
.⁦⁩ has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources tell The Atlantic.
The takeaway here is that it's not just a personal grudge against McCain — President Trump has a very deeply and sincerely-held belief that anyone who gets killed, injured, or captured in a war is a "loser"
Donald Trump, in a White House meeting, asked that a military parade exclude wounded veterans, because "nobody wants to see" amputees. My story here
People are gonna vote for this guy because they automatically equate "Republican" with "supports the military."
“Trump’s understanding of heroism has not evolved since he became president. According to sources with knowledge of the president’s views, he seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect.”
The president's statements are beneath the dignity of his office. The commander in chief should be our service members' greatest advocate & defender—as any leader should be. Men & women in uniform deserve a president who honors their service & sacrifice.
“Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” - the #DraftDodgerInChief Yeah, he really said that. This vet has run out of words.
Hard to imagine GOP voters standing by a commander in chief who thinks soldiers who die in battle are “losers” and “suckers.”
Unpresidential. Un-American. Unfit.
What a repulsive human being.
He is a heartless soulless tyrant only interest in money The president, who never served in the military, canceled a visit to a cemetery where American troops are buried, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
Imagine if Barack Obama said this. Disgusting.
This is really something. But doubtful it'll matter much. Relatedly, it doesn't help that ALL of those quoted are STILL unwilling to speak for attribution. That's hard, no doubt, but if others risked/gave their lives, it seems like a lesser sacrifice.
Many things I’ve read about the forty-fifth president these past four years have dismayed and disgusted me, but few more than this.
Trump didn’t want a military parade to include wounded veterans. “Nobody wants to see that.” Remarkable report by
Absolutely disgusting. Our veterans and troops have risked their lives by doing everything they were asked to do. They are true heroes and don’t deserve a president who refuses to honor their service, sacrifices, or memory. #TrumpMustGo.
And to think this man's photo hangs in the front entrance of every VA hospital, staring out at the many veterans who have lost so much in service to our country. These words and sentiments are absolutely revolting; our servicepeople deserve better.
According to sources with knowledge of the president’s views, he seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military.

2/ Trump doesn't care about our men & women in uniform. He only cares about Trump.
Our president does not know who "the good guys" were in World War I. Nor did he want flags lowered for that "fucking loser," John McCain. He simply cannot comprehend the concept of serving one's country.
The editor of the Atlantic wouldn’t put his name on this story if we wasn’t sure it happened. But still, if you hear a US president say something this shocking, don’t you have a duty to go on the record? Especially if three others heard it too.
Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’ - The Atlantic
Trump on McCain: “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral” Trump on amputee veterans: “Nobody wants to see that” Trump on visiting US WWI cemetery: "Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
This is shocking, even for Trump. The men and women who lost their lives defending our country are patriots – not “losers” and “suckers.” Trump must be defeated and defeated badly.
“We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral," Trump said, referring to John McCain. Full story here
Anyone who reads this article and yet intends to vote for a second Trump term must either be incapable of comprehending the very idea of human sacrifice or fully prepared to have a barely human monster lead our nation. You choose.
This is devastating, disqualifying, and utterly credible. Since Trump is now denying what ⁦⁩ has reported, his sources have a duty to go on the record and tell the voters first-hand what they saw and heard.
Commander Bone Spurs is at least consistent in his contempt for all who gave their lives for America in war: his “love” for our nation is totally fake. No wonder he sides with Putin against the United States. He has the heart of a traitor.
“The president believes that nothing is worth doing without the promise of monetary payback, and that talented people who don’t pursue riches are ‘losers.’”
I’ve long said there’s no bottom with Trump but it’s hard to go much lower than this
We can never repay the debt owed to the American heroes who gave their lives in service to our country. How this president can view their sacrifice with such contempt and utter disrespect is unconscionable.
You know I'm not disinclined to believe stuff like this about Trump, but my trust in media has eroded to the point where listing explosive claims and chasing it with "we spoke to 4 people who know and they confirmed this" just won't cut it for me anymore.
This is indefensible, obviously true to his nature, and so terribly wrong.

Trump occasionally asks good questions. Re WWI: "Who were the good guys in this war?'" "He didn’t understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the Allies."
Trump believes those who died for their country are "losers" and "suckers"; those who withstood torture are not heroes. I suspect he feels that way about those who have died/were wounded under his command. And about front-line workers during #COVID19.
Hard to read. Hard to stomach. Hard to imagine having a Commander in Chief that would truly be like this. But, from what we’ve all seen from his public behavior, and given everything written from close sources, it is, sadly, kind of believable.
If Donald Trump had any honor, he would apologize to our soldiers and their families for his horrendous remarks, then resign in disgrace. #UnfitToBePresident #TrumpResign
