Before Wallace could even finish asking Trump for his thoughts on critical comments made by McRaven, the president cut him off. "Hillary Clinton fan," Trump interjected. Wallace continued. Trump cut him off again. "Excuse me: Hillary. Clinton. Fan."
Is this being offered as an example of Mr. Trump disrespecting someone's military service?
Absolutely, this a perfect example of Trump disrespecting someone's military service.
How is calling the guy a "Hillary Clinton fan" disrespecting his military service?
He's like the Queen in the Snow White fairy tale nemesis who hated her only because she was 'pretty' and gave her a poisoned apple. Trump cannot stand the idea of anyone being given credit for a courageous act, or a humanitarian effort because it means someone somewhere is not focused on the glorious idea of Donald Trump. This is far greater than overblown ego, this is pathological.
Strange how Mr. Trump was not attacking everyone who gets credit for courageous acts then.
For some reason Mr. Trump confined his comments to questioning the legitimacy of criticism that was directed at him.
