Military Times: Trump made up injury to dodge Vietnam service, his former lawyer testifies



MilitaryTimes.com | 2/27/19

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump acknowledged to advisors that he made up a fake injury to avoid military service, because “I wasn’t going to Vietnam,” his former lawyer told lawmakers during testimony on Wednesday.

Michael Cohen, who also worked as a fixer for Trump before his election, said he was tasked with tamping down criticism of the military deferment as the presidential candidate simultaneously mocked Sen. John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, for being regarded as a military hero. “I like people who weren’t captured," Trump said during a July 2015 interview.

“Mr. Trump claimed (his medical deferment) was because of a bone spur, but when I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery,” Cohen told members of the House Oversight Committee. “He told me not to answer the specific questions by reporters but rather offer simply the fact that he received a medical deferment.

“He finished the conversation with the following comment: ‘You think I'm stupid, I wasn't going to Vietnam.’”...snip

...Trump received five deferments during the height of the Vietnam War. Four were for education. The fifth was the medical waiver, after his graduation....https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2019/02/27/trumps-lawyer-no-basis-for-presidents-medical-deferment-from-vietnam/

9. So we don't care that a draft dodger

1. Compares the service of those who served in Vietnam to his “service” in avoiding STDs from screwing around
2. Denigrates the service of a true war hero

simply because Clinton dodged the draft as well. Okilie, dokilie.

14. I care.

I got a college deferment. That didn't last. And when my name was called, I served honorably. I didn't try to lie my way out of it like Trump did. Big difference.

I don't blame anybody for getting an honest deferment. But I am offended by jingoistic chickenhawks who took extraordinary measures to avoid the draft back then, while today they are eager to spend other people's blood and treasure on the next military adventure that comes along. I care about that lot.

4. The Acolytes are of two minds (a term I use loosely) on this

The smarter ones (another term I use loosely) acknowledge that Trumpie was a draft dodger but they say Clinton was too, so that makes it ok.

The non-smarter ones talk about Trumpie’s draft lottery number despite the fact he had been declared 1-Y six months before the lottery.

5. Now that the Russian collusion conspiracy theory failed like a flat tire ...

the new thing to blame Trump for is avoiding the draft half a century ago.

Big whoopee do!!!!!!

Draft deferment wasn't uncommon during the Vietnam era — but it frequently benefited a specific group of young men, particularly those who had the means to afford a college education or enough family influence to obtain a deferment.

DOVER, Del. (AP) | Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager.

7. "muh draft deferments" is peak Boomer meme.

Literally no one under the age of 30 cares one bit about the draft.

17. Oh really says the A-hole who believes his right were free of charge.

The rights you enjoy today, each and every one of them, were paid for with the blood of our military.

I have bled for those rights and taken lives to ensure that those rights remain. I will do so again if necessary.
