Of course he is. The semantics of "dodger" are more than wide enough to cover those who used other tactics to avoid being drafted. Bill Clinton did too.

Trump was more of a "draft avoider." He was never ordered to report for draft.

Yes, Clinton was a true draft-dodger.

everybody tried to get out of fighting in that war after we invaded North Viet Nam. Dumbest war we ever started.

F'N-A. you're addressing our troops. spend 20minutes with someone with an above 4th grade vocabulary to formulate a cohesive thought.

We never get one, never never never. What we get is popularity contest, and who do you want to handle your economy the popular kid or the nerd. I want the nerd every time and Hillary is not only a total nerd she is strong and cares about the bottom 50% a lot more than the top half.

I know you will never ever believe that. But the best chance the bottom 70% have is a few straight terms of policy wonks, it does not even matter if they are Repubs or Dems as long as they are moderate. Because real policy wonks don't do stupid stuff like slashing Corps rates, ending estate taxes , lowering pass through, and increasing taxes on students...
THIS! ,great post!

"Big, fat, beautiful tax cuts" . How cringeworthy.

President Chickenhawk addresses the troops. I hope they're happy, I hear that most of them voted for him.

Watch the President's eyes in the linked video. For about the first 10 seconds, his eyes are down, reading the script of the speech, and speaking in the dull monotone he uses when reading other people's words. But after that, the President ignores the script, he stops talking in complete sentences and switches into his short, rambling and disjointed speech fragments.

Getting this man a better speech writer won't work when he simply casts aside any speech provided to him.

Trump is so off the cuff and he is refreshingly honest and the left of course hates it.

Donald Trump was a proactive draft avoider. Four deferments for being enrolled in college. After he graduated from college, one medical deferment for bone spurs, which didn't stop him from playing golf during that time period.

Trump is not honest. Never has been. Never will be.

...“Like Nixon, Trump has created a culture in his administration in which people feel comfortable with corruption.”

Asked whether the Trump administration was the most dishonest he had ever seen or studied, he replied: "Yes. Politicians lie, but this is different...."

Donald Trump running the most dishonest White House ever, says historian | The Independent
