Trump isn’t a pimple on the nose of Dwight D. Eisenhower

Donald Trump must have heard something about the military-industrial complex since he was outed for slandering dead soldiers and Marines killed in France during World War I. He badly needs some shade from flamed Americans, particularly vets and active-duty military service members. Since Monday, Trump has several times babbled incoherent analogies about how America’s soldiers […]

Trump Now Has A Top Gun On His Ass
