Trump Receives Purple Heart from Vet. Hmm, What Should Hillary Receive? [VIDEOS]

Another day on the campaign trail, another day in which Donald Trump has a Steve Urkel moment.

Trump was at a rally in Virginia earlier today, when a veteran, identified as Lt. Col. Louis Dorfman, handed him his Purple Heart.

To which Trump responded, “I always wanted to get the purple heart. This was much easier.”

Oy. It was the kind of response that elicits a face palm. Or as my four-year-old grandson says,”Slam head!”

Who does this? Well, Trump of course. But watch the entire video. Trump made a truly stupid remark, but he also seemed really moved by the gesture.

Then there’s Hillary Clinton.

Maybe she never wanted a Purple Heart, but she did try to enlist in the Marines. Oh yes. She told that big lie story back in 1994. And she told the story again while on the campaign trail back in November.

The Washington Post fact checker gave her Two Pinocchios for continuing that canard.

But how can any proud American forget how Hillary as First Lady courageously dodged sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996?

In 2008, then-Sen. Clinton recounted during a foreign policy speech:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Here’s how Hillary would like you to envision that scene.

The fact checkers at Politifact rated that one a “pants on fire” lie.

Trump may have made a flippant and witless remark about wanting a Purple Heart. But Hillary Clinton disrespects the military in her cavalier remarks: by lying about enlisting, and by claiming to have experienced enemy fire.

Perhaps she should receive the Democratic Red Star award (with Oak Leaf clusters!) for bald-faced lying in the face of so much fact checking.

    OK, we get it Trump is a moron. Then who should I vote for?

    • Kim Quade says:

      That’s your decision.
      In case you couldn’t infer from the tone of the article, I’m no supporter of Hillary.

  • Fred says:

    Kim, the whole thrust of your post is to dump on Donald, simply because he is un-PC.

    But Donald did not make a witless remark. He made a little joke, no, not a classic, that acknowledged that the other guy actually earned the Purple Heart, not him. There’s nothing witless about that. Indelicate…maybe.

    But you are so terrified, you have been so cowed by decades of PC free speech censorship, that you are becoming Mrs. Grundy. You *care* so timidly that someone might think you are slightly unkind, or biased, or judgmental. Donald knows how completely ridiculous such caring is. He does NOT care if the PC speech police get the vapors over his harmless little joke. Probably, he is glad, because repeatedly upsetting the speech police, faster than they can recover, has gotten him where he is today.

    How about YOU wake the heck up, regain your bearings, and calm down about harmless jokes? Let Donald worry about what the vast herd of constipated snowflakes over on the left feels about it. Do not join that flock of Grundys.

    We *want* them all upset. We *want* them off-balance. We *want* him to shove their their political correctness and their prissy speech codes up their frozen little bungholes.

    I am sick and tired of everybody fainting away because a New York construction boss didn’t act or speak like Queen Elizabeth having tea with the Pope.

    I want him to have directness, and energy, and empathy. I want him to say what he thinks, without fear of criticism by the PC press. I want him to be an incisive man of action, who puts the American people first. It looks like he is ready to do that.

    We are in a major national crisis here, and you are whining pitifully that the gladiator who is charging into battle for you has a spot on his scabbard.

    What the devil is your problem. Get a grip, honey. The vast, vicious Clinton Machine is gearing up to throw *everything* they have at this man – and at us. Don’t add a thumb weight to their side.

    • Kim Quade says:

      A few things to consider, Fred.

      First: Reread the entire article. You will find that Hillary Clinton receives much more harsh criticism than Trump does.

      Second: Browbeating a person like myself who just might come around to vote for Trump by telling me to “wake the heck up, calm down” and that I’m “whining pitifully” — plus calling me a “Mrs. Grundy” (which I had to look up, since I don’t read comics) will certainly NOT convince me to vote for your candidate. He needs to earn my vote. You hectoring will do nothing except turn me off. Capiche?

      Third: I’m not your honey. And you seriously need to chill.

      Thanks for reading.

    People are sometimes bothered by Trump’s comments. I am too, but not quite as often as others.

    Trump, is not a polished and practiced politician. He’s not skilled at saying just the right thing … while saying nothing at all … that people want to hear. He’s unfiltered most of the time, and yes that’s gotten him in hot water.

    He speaks his mind, probably an asset in the world he comes from … high level, high stakes business. In his world I’m guessing confidence and truthfulness carry more weight than being able to dazzle the masses with bull.

    In time he’ll learn to hold back, just a bit. He still needs to be able to dismantle the media … that hates him with a passion. Plus he needs to be an example to others that political correctness does not control us.

    I do however, believe he genuinely cares about America and us, the little guys. There is no other reason a man his age, with billions and a world class business need put himself through the dirty political wringer that is presidential politics.

    I give Trump a break when he says or does something that we normally never see in politics simply because he isn’t a politician. There is no rule that says only career politicians may run for president … in fact we’re where we are because they have.

    When’s the last time you actually heard a Washington DC politician say “America first”? Been a long time.

    Anyway, my two cents.

      As to being an asset in business – truthfulness is, but not necessarily bluntness. And rudeness isn’t an asset anywhere.

      I do however, believe he genuinely cares about America and us, the little guys.

      Well, I agree he cares about America. I’m not sure he cares much about the “little guy”. I honestly don’t need him to – since that usually ends up being a way to tax the middle class to buy votes from the lower class.

      However, I can think of LOTS of reasons why he would put himself through the wringer of presidential politics, beside some measure of benevolence.

      There is no rule that says only career politicians may run for president … in fact we’re where we are because they have.

      In this, I concur. Though it’s not because career politicians run, but because voters vote for them.

      Trump is the result of Americans feeling the effects of the technocracy/political class – burdens of regulation, lack of equality under the law, let-them-eat-cake attitudes, and a hydra growing out of control. It doesn’t mean he’s Hercules.
