Wounded Warrior J.R. Salzman Takes on Donald Trump

Earlier we told you about Trump putting his foot in his mouth once again when he called taking the brunt of an IED explosion in an armored vehicle a “little ride.”

Some of us at Victory Girls have loved ones who have served or are currently serving in the military — a husband, brother, son, and in my case, a son-in-law — so this inane comment really boiled our blood.

It also caught the attention of wounded warrior J.R. Salzman, who lost his arm and nearly his life in an IED blast. He took to Twitter to address Trump’s comment.

He got immediate pushback, most likely from a Trump supporter. His response was the perfect squelch.

The Trump supporter wouldn’t give up — Dear Leader’s honor was at stake. Or something.

Salzman posted a picture of how his brand new armored Humvee looked after he took his “little ride.”

He also talked about the “little rides” he took after the explosion.

And the “little rides” he continues to take.

Yes, those are quite the “little rides” J.R. Salzman has taken since being wounded. I wonder if he would liken them to . . . say, Disney World. Maybe Six Flags?

But Donald Trump absolutely knows what he’s talking about when it comes to our military. He’s fit to be Commander-in-Chief from Day One. After all, he said just last year that the time he spent in a pricey New York military prep school was like serving in the actual military, despite the fact that he received several draft deferments from serving in Vietnam.

The hard truth is that Donald J. Trump is not fit to shine J.R. Salzman’s boots. “Little ride,” indeed.
