Ok, I think it’s safe to say that Donald Trump’s depravity knows no bounds. His rallies continue to get worse, equated only to train wrecks for which we just cannot look away. Instead, we stand here with mouths gaping wide, shocked at each and every bit of carnage left in the path of the Great Orange Destroyer.
Today at his rally in Ashburn, Virginia, the fascist candidate who has given not a single moment of military service personally, boasted about receiving a Purple Heart Medal. It is reported that retired Lt. Col. Louis Dorfman, who was wounded in 2007 in Iraq, gave the presidential candidate his medal.
Let that sink in for a moment. Donald Trump who has said vicious things about a family who lost their son in actual war, who has received scathing messages from other gold star families who also lost loved ones in war – just accepted a soldier’s Purple Heart Medal.
Trump retold the story to the crowd in Virginia, saying the retired Lt. Col. told him:
That’s my real Purple Heart. I have such confidence in you.
Of course, any decent human being would have immediately handed the medal back to the war hero. But, we are talking about Donald Trump here. So he said:
Man, that’s like big stuff. I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.
NBC reporter Katy Tur has tweeted that she spoke with the retired serviceman who has told her it was actually a copy of his actual medal.
All of it is just no. Just. No!
