The Commander-in-Chief
With Five Deferments

Hitting Donald Trump where it’ll hurt most
In an interview with C-SPAN on the Vietnam War, John McCain strongly denounced the rich draft dodgers who used fake medical deferments to avoid serving.
President Trump used the maneuver to get five deferments – four for college and one for “bone spurs” on his hell.
“One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” McCain said. “That is wrong. That is wrong. If we are going to ask every American to serve, every American should serve.”
Trump tore into McCain during the primary campaign, saying the former prisoner of war wasn’t “a hero” after enduring years of torture in a Vietnamese prison camp.
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” Source: LGBTQ Nation, Oct.23, 2017
