Trump dodged Vietnam by lying about draft status

It seems The Donald, ringmaster extraordinaire,  has lied, again.  This guy lies so much he has to have someone else call his dog. This time, however, his lie dishonors all of the brave men and women who lost their lives, were wounded, or served in Vietnam.

Here is the story of his latest journey into madness:

Selective service records Donald Trump didn’t want anyone to see show he dodged the Vietnam War due to a medical deferment, not a high draft number as he has claimed.

The records indicate Trump was granted a series of student deferments before graduating from college, and then was deemed physically unacceptable for military service after he graduated.

The paperwork, obtained from the National Archives and Records Administration by thesmokinggun.com website, contradict what Trump has publicly said in recent days.

“I actually got lucky because I had a very high draft number. I’ll never forget, that was an amazing period of time in my life,” the reality TV star and billionaire real estate developer said in a TV interview on Tuesday.

“I was going to the Wharton School of Finance, and I was watching as they did the draft numbers and I got a very, very high number and those numbers never got up to,” said The Donald, neglecting to utter the word “deferment.”

Trump, who is flirting with a run for the Republican nomination for President, was traveling Thursday night and could not immediately be reach for comment.

The bombshell document was released a day after President Obama accommodated demands from Trump and Tea Party officials for him to release his long-form birth certificate proving he was born in the United States.

Trump, who attended high school at the New York Military Academy in Cornwall-on-Hudson, took credit for forcing Obama to release his full birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii.

He continues to demand Obama release his academic records, suggesting the President didn’t have the smarts to get into Columbia and Harvard.

The Selective Service records were released with a copy of the registration card Trump signed in June 1964, revealing that in addition to weird hair, he has birthmarks on both his heels.

    Mike, Trump is becoming a very old tired joke. I think it is time we just brush him off. After the President trashed him at the Press Corps Dinner the other night he should be keeping his head down. He is no longer to be considered a serious candidate.

      I never really considered him a serious candidate Bill, but he was fun to watch, until he really got nasty. Now I think he is little more than a arrogant blowhard, who, as you say needs to be “keeping his head down.” That, however, is not in his nature so he will keep poking that head up and we will keep taking proverbial “shots” at it 🙂 🙂

    Having listened to a few of his utterings on satellite news I’d say it was more psychologically unfit than physical….;-)
