WTF is WRONG with him???

Trump Tweets 2017 Medal Of Honor Ceremony Photo But Replaces Image Of Soldier With Baghdadi Raid Dog




President Trump on Wednesday shared a photograph from 2017 altered to show him placing a medal around the neck of the dog injured in the raid that led to the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State’s leader.


The conservative site Daily Wire tweeted the image Tuesday with McCloughan removed. A watermark for the site appears in Trump’s tweet, but it is a cropped version that removes the attribution of the source photo, which is the Associated Press. That would have indicated that it began as a legitimate news photo, raising the question of whether Trump or a staffer knew McCloughan had been edited out.

To recap, Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire stole the source photo from the AP and Trump lifted the Daily Wire remix.

He must know how ridiculous and how fucking rude this is? Surely?

1. Did it make a Lib unhappy?

Then he's perfectly happy with the impression it gives.

10. I'm sure that 2017 Medal of Honor recipient wasn't happy having a Russian Stooge award him.

.

Meanwhile, the dog just goes, "Arf!! Where's my dinner!"

36. He was amused

 

In a phone interview on Wednesday, Mr. McCloughan, 73, who had not seen the image before a reporter sent it to him, said that he interpreted it as Mr. Trump recognizing the dog’s heroism. He certainly was not offended and laughed when he compared the two images.

After all, he said, Medal of Honor recipients accept on behalf of their entire teams, especially those that did not return from battle. And canines have long been part of war efforts.

“This recognizes the dog is part of that team of brave people,” he said.

Mr. McCloughan, who taught high school and coached youth sports after his military service, added that he had worked with a dog in Vietnam who helped detect enemy activity during missions.

“They are very courageous,” he said of military canines

19. I guarantee it made service members, past and present, more than unhappy.

Medal of Honor recipients are revered.

Using that medal as a 'joke' is an insult to every man who has been honored with it and their families. A fair share of those men received it the hard way, posthumously.

31. History will chronicle his removal of our troops from Northern Syria

as an example of his bereft understanding of the history of that troubled region, his inability to grasp complex military matters best left to those who do, and his utter failure of leadership.

The damage he has caused in this one reckless, foolish move will change the map of the ME for decades to come, ignite a whole new generation of terrorists, and destroy our global presence and reputation long after his sorry carcass is left to the worms.

I just have no words left. As an American, I am shamed. As a veteran, I am heart-broken.

Shamed and heart-broken, you too nailed it.

However, to quote a Tommy

I am wounded, but not yet slain

I'll lay me down awhile

Then rise and fight again.

Like everybody else.
No vip hospital rooms,no luxury prison,no sweeping the bad things they do under the rug.

If it's something bad they have done reject and judge thier acts like every one else.

Do not allow money make you tolerate the intolerable.
