    Well then…trumps strong denial…like Putin’s..means its 100% true. Good to know.

    • Too bad Democrats can’t come up with a policy besides ” we hate Trump”.
      They may have a chance of winning.

    • @felix u it won Trump office in 2016, so what’s the problem with it? I mean for a decade now republicans have sworn to get rid of Obamacare, and still nothing. Only consistent bit of policy from republicans is the 90 year history of every single Republican President crashing the economy…

    • @Some Person so, Trump crashed the economy? If you believe that, the delusion is deeper than thought. As to Obamacare – and the wall, the republicans have tried to repeal it and build it with the traditional 100% no votes from Pelosi and company. But the wall is going up anyway, McCain can’t vote against repeal any longer, so we shall see. One of the huge provisions of Obamacare is already gone; the mandate. Good thing I listened to my wife and stayed on our policy. Our premiums would have tripled by now. But Obamacare is great if you don’t mind if others pay your bills. We do.

    • @felix u well Trump did approve $870 billion to the REPO markets last September or start QE lite because he knew a recession was coming…😂😂😂

    • @Some Person hadn’t heard of that, but it sounds like something straight off CNN or MSDNC.

  2. It’s a fake story, yet he called John McCain a loser, because he got caught lol

    I did more than anybody and never did anything and everybody is fake and failing.

    • @John D Sadly you and people like you are the problem by refusing to acknowledge that trump and his family are not only corrupt but totally incompetent.
      The US under trump and his cronies is an embarrassment, the truth is out he didnt go to a US war memorial in France in 2018 because his hair might get wet thats the level the US has sunk to.

    • @Rupert explain to me how biden and family are not the same as trump..what has biden done in 40 years as a representative..what major impact or chambes has he had? What legislation did he bring forward to change America? What problems have any dems solved when in office ?
      Oh and tell me when biden or Harris served in office or what they have done for the military? What families that lost loved ones were reached out to by biden or harris?
      You are throwing stones in one direction..

    • @mtronix no but I’d ask him if he agrees that Putin is a murderous Russian Dictator? If not, you know he’s a Russian troll.

    • Trump 2020!!!!!🚂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 12 more years 🔥🔥🔥🔥

    • And I can’t get the nomination. Can’t get elected. Will wreck the economy. Will start WWIII. Can’t fix the VA. Can’t move the embassy to Jerusalem. Can’t keep a new war from starting. Can’t make peace in Middle East. Can’t…….

      Do you guys ever catch a clue?

    fake president…..

    • You’re the one that’s fake hiding behind little doggy pictures you don’t got the guts to put your name out there you piece of s***

    • He’s been demeaning veterans and military people since day one. Look at what he said about McCain, Vidman, McRaven, Kelly, Mattis, etc. #TraitorInChief

    • Jason C. He has personal beefs with this individuals. His stance on Veteran as a whole is very clear and proven. Get over it tds snowflake

    • Linus Avogadro | September 5, 2020 at 2:31 PM | Reply

      @Leo Ortkras what does it matter who they are? You should think more about the credibility of what they say. Trying to practice some ad hominem or something?

    • Trump 🚂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸

  5. Dirty Don is lying again. He said “VD was my Viet Nam.”

    • Studio 54 was his battleground… Meanwhile,
      five good American Sons took his place,
      he has done nothing that deserves respect,
      not one wangdangdoodlethang, not one ounce of respect.
      That is 60days, 6hours & 59 minutes, give or take a few minutes. Peace

    • John McCain Operation Rolling Thunder killed THOUSANDS OF CIVILIANS IN VIETNAM. Look it up before you spew lies.

    • @JIGS UP I am not sure, but I am guessing you are not very good at picking up on the conversation you are entering. yep, you truly misread these posts, maybe go drink a beer or a shot or have a smoke & relax a bit dude…peace

  6. Trump, the guy who paid a doctor to say he had bone spurs and banned trans people from serving, called John McCain a loser for serving and apparently everyone else, and also took credit for Obama’s veterans bill, says he’s done more for the military than anyone lol

  7. Anyone who believes this guy is a “sucker” and a “loser”, as Trump would say.

    • Elard De Boer – Other world leaders made it to the cemetery that day. So I guess Trump is just a pansy then?

      Also, both can be true. Their “official” reason could be due to weather AND Trump could have called the dead soldiers losers and suckers. It’s like when you don’t want to go to a friend’s house and you make up a lame excuse.

      AND Bolton never said that Trump didn’t say that. He just didn’t personally hear him say it, but he never ruled out the possibility. When are y’all gonna face reality? Trump’s making you look like a fool. Like a country bumpkin who comes to the city and gets fleeced over and over by a big city hustler.

    • @Perry yeah but the point I was making is that he is taken out of context and there is now literally more evidence that he didn’t make those remarks, since nothing concrete has been produced by the other side. So nice rant but you have proven nothing. Making you still the fool for just taking their word for it. Also why is your presented evidence (which is literally rumours) more worth than mine (actual statements) and it still shows that the weather was the cause, not that he thought they were losers. You are jumping to conclusions so nice try with that insult but you just proved your bias.

    • Elard De Boer – The report has been verified by multiple publications, including Fox News. That means multiple reporters have verified with the original anonymous sources. At this point, it’s a he said, she said situation. I believe the anonymous officials, because it fits the pattern of how Trump has insulted military veterans in the past. You believe Trump, even though he lies like you and I breathe. (Side note: This is why Trump’s lies matter. His credibility is shot, which makes him vulnerable to just about any claim.)

    • @Elard De Boer well, in some circles, accusation is proof. Especially if the accused is a republican or named Trump.

    • Sure. As this “reporter” backpedals once again in keeping with his history. The story is fake. Now, The Atlantic says the Nobel Peace Prize should be abolished. Couldn’t be because they think Trump may win it, could it?

  8. Remember when he ruined thanksgiving for a whole lot of troops by making them go down to the border to stop the “caravan” (remember that BS?) for a political stunt to help repubs in the 2018 midterms? No one believes you Trump. You’re a proven liar and proven disrespect-er of the military.

    • John Bolton who was there (and who hates Trump) has already said this is a BS story. The media is disgusting!

    • Rod no he didn’t, stop lying. Trump was already busted lying when he said he never called McCain a loser and we have video of it.

  9. At this point in history the ARMY should salute Trump with only one finger. 🥴

    • @Gustanini RD lol. that’s what the indoctrination dickheads are implanting in our kids heads. So, it’s tough growing up these days. In order to go thru life without that victim mentality, they first have to survive legal abortion laws, then indoctrination in school, and then the cancel culture with hive mentality.

    • felix u That is so true. Socialism is such an impossible utopia. Here in spain everybody wants to get out because of it. No jobs, minimum wages everywhere (even for those with a degree), brainwashing in school, the destruction of the family and culture… The worst part is that most don’t see that these problems come from adopting socialist values. I sincerely hope the best for the US. So much people are unfortunately buying all this propaganda. It is communism for everybody but for politicians and their people. 🙌🏾

    • @Gustanini RD Just like the crook King Juan Carlos does in exile Jackazz!!!

    • @Dittzx how in the world is Juan Carlos a crook? Didn’t he renounce the dictatorship he inherited from his father and give up his executive powers to form representative govt? Are we missing something in America?

    • @Gustanini RD Have you ever been to the US?

  10. “includes salary increases”…THAT IS A LIE!!! MY GOD!! just look it up. amazing how easy his supporters are. And Choice?? That was written in by Obama.

    • Stefanos Smitty | September 4, 2020 at 1:30 PM | Reply

      The stalks of broccoli who support him couldn’t care less about facts, evidence, reason, or anything else. All they hear is “build a wall, keep out Muslims, support our confederate flag” and that’s good enough for them.

    • John Bolton who was there (and who hates Trump) has already said this is a BS story. The media is disgusting!
      You should actually check facts before you keep getting suckered by the propaganda

    • Stefanos Smitty | September 4, 2020 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      Rod interesting. Then why didn’t he go to the cemetery in France? 🤔 You actually think rain stopped him? Somehow Merkel and Macron got there just fine. You think any credible journalist would make up this story? If it’s not true, then she them for libel. I’m willing to bet my house he won’t do it. Truth is an absolute defense to a libel claim.


    • @Rod poor thing. Read the facts. Bolton was NOT at Arlington with Chump and General Kelly. And the fact that trump …ON CAMERA claimed McCain wasn’t a war hero BECAUSE HE WAS CAPTURED?? and you puppets believe anything this orange POS says. Pathetic.

  11. I remember him calling McCain a loser. This guy is a liar on all fronts.

  12. As a retired Soldier, the amount of money you spend in the military industrial complex is not the same as money you spend taking care of your troops. Also, Russian bounties on US troops in Afghanistan…

  13. What a disgusting character!

    • John Bolton who was there (and who hates Trump) has already said this is a BS story. The media is disgusting!

    • I hope you are referring to the “journalist” who wrote this lie.

    • @Susan Olsen
      Hi Susan!
      What I was trying to express is my disgust about the notorious liar, the shameless bully, the corrupt businessman, and traitorous politician who is dirtying your White House.
      It is unbelievable that so many Americans can not see that Donald Trump is destroying their country for his personal profit and the benefit of Russia.
      But that’s what a cult does with people’s minds. If you chose to trust in a lie and to follow a rat catcher you are caught in a trap. Since nobody likes to admit to being such a creature. So they stick to the lies until the bitter end.
      The Germans, for example, who followed Hitler saw their country destroyed and themselves deeply ashamed.
      But Americans lack this Hitler experience. You never had such an immoral demagogue in the White House, until now.
      I hope you all wake up from your dangerous delusion, before it’s too late.
      And by the way: Several sources, including Fox “News”, confirmed that Donald Trump called veterans “suckers” and “losers”.
      But I guess that’ll not change your mind. You chose to see a man as the your messiah who bragged about grabbing women by their p… So you probably have no problem with the general immorality of this man. Are you not at all worried about the fact that his misinformation and inaction is responsible for the Covid-19 desaster in the USA, and some 100,000 unnecessary deaths. No, of course not! That’s all fake news. Everything that doesn’t praise Donald Trump must be fake news, by definition.
      All the best to you from Germany

  14. Amazing how it’s fake news unless it makes him look good. what a tool.

    • Fake news, then prove it with facts or sue them for defamation. The free press is what informs the people about the abuse of power by the leaders

    • Lonnetta Scott | September 4, 2020 at 2:37 PM | Reply


    • @Hubert Sang and every veteran (McCain, Vidman, McRaven, Mattis, Kelly, etc..) he’s demeaned before is NOT fakenews. There is solid evidence of him having done it. Yet, you still defend him. #UnAmerican

    • @Jason C. who is defending him? I said if it is fake news, then prove it. It is on record that he is demeaning everything, yet some people defend him. It is utter stupidity, that a person elected to Office to administer the country and its resources plays golf at his own properties, is allowed to fleece the taxpayer to the tune of $350,000+ per golf trip. Does anybody that brownbags a ham and cheese sandwich tell his boss: ” boss, i brought my own lunch, and I am going to bill the company $350.” Up to now, he plays exclusively at his properties, and conveniently the expenses are paid to Trump properties. My answer: if he likes to play golf at his properties, then play for free. I did not vote for a failed businessman to run a country, because it is putting a Wolf to guard the chicken coop. Remember the french revolution? people revolted because of the excesses of their rulers. Because of todays excesses and inequalities, the next revolution in the world will be so violent, that it will make the french
      revolution look like a child’s birthday party. That is if we first do not plunge into a civil war or WW III. The majority of the people elected someone to take care of the country, to defend the Constitution. He was not elected to fleece the taxpayer. If he is as rich as he claims, then why fleece the taxpayer? While we are in lockdown, unemployed and wondering about our future, he goes to play golf and takes $350,000 from the federal reserve. He bankrupted three casinos! How can you bankrupt a casino, the odds favor the house!! No american bank loans money to him! That is an indication of lack of trust. It is insulting to demean the people that made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the country. In the meantime, Putin is having the time of his life: big smirk and saying: I have finally damaged the americans, and I did not have to fire a single shot to do so.

    • Trump 2020!!!!!

  15. Sorry Donnie. I believe the story. Making outrageous statements is a way of life for you. You constantly need the attention.

    Why ask him, you know he will lie!

  17. “What a sucker. Got nothing out of being such a loser!” said t’rump to John Kelly at the grave of his son.

  18. Remember the GOLD STAR FAMILY Remember JOHN McCAIN? Remember getting caught STEALING 2 MILLION dollars you raised for a Veteran’s charity in NY? #LyingKINGandCROOK

  19. When he says: “Nobody’s done what I’ve done”. I think, YOU CAN SAY THAT AGAIN!!! And hopefully, the next President won’t even go close to your lawlessness. LOCK HIM UP!!!

  20. The LYING Sociopath-In-Chief knows he’s losing.
