Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters gave the best explanation for drumpf bailing on memorials

"He just didn't feel like it."

Peters absolutley nailed it. It wasn't the rain or anything else. The fat piece of shit coward just didn't feel like it. Doesn't give a shit about heroes who gave their lives or anyone in our current military, just like he doesn't care about anyone but himself.

And can you imagine the uproar if Obama had done this?

He didn't feel like it. Likewise, I bet he starts to hole up in the WH to avoid formal affairs. I could see him turning the the WH into a bunker.

We veterans (and active duty) are nothing more to him than back drop props and photo ops.

Now, he's trying to stifle the absentee ballots (votes) that were cast by active duty men and women cast in the Florida election. Yep, Spanky, because nothing says 'I support the troops' like not honoring the right to vote that they provide. FUCK YOU.

they are known to go into Narcissistic Hibernation where they shut down, feel sorry for themselves and force others to explain away their absence. So I definitely believe the Lt colonel - He just didn't feel like it.

They cant call him a liberal. Or a Democrat. And he wasn't a "never trumper" as far as I know. So how can they handle a guy like this? he quit Fox News because he said the slant had gotten too much. Coming from him that was a lot.

Sometimes people are just venting too, so as long as they are not attacking Dems or other violations, people can post what they want.

54. That's my issue

I've never been the biggest Obama cheerleader. But I always thought most of the RWNJ criticism was just insane. I was always reminded of the Clinton Era when the RWNJ would make crap up. It's not like there wasn't legitimate things that they could have complained based upon their own point of view. But no, they had to make up crap because apparently they had little faith in the value of their own views.

The complaints of the RWNJ were always stupid. Sure he did alot of which they did not agree, but instead they made up crap about tan suits and "apology tours". And now we have a guy that can't even show up for the most basic of events. Mind you, he can arrange for any size tent he wants, but instead he can't even bother to ask.

And probably is jealous of the service members. For the attention they're getting instead of himself. He is probably jealous they get any recognition for their service , and he doesn't. Yes he probably was too lazy to attend because he probably wanted to watch tv, or eat cheeseburgers. He's right, this coward could care less about anyone else but himself, and it shows. Trump's a loser , liar ,and a fraud.
