President Donald Trump went to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq on his first visit to U.S. troops in the Middle East as president.

First lady Melania Trump joined him on the unscheduled Wednesday visit.

Trump visited with U.S. troops stationed in South Korea in Nov. 2017, but he had yet to visit Americans deployed in the Middle East.

Two years! It took this coward two years to finally sac up and go visit the troops that HE is ultimately responsible for.

And you know he only did this because he was being shamed by just about everybody for never visiting Iraq or Afghanistan and for not spending time with the troops during the holidays. 

I would bet my house that if he was not getting attacked from all sides that he would have gladly stayed in the White House or Mar-a-Lago for the entire holiday season and never once visited or phoned anybody fighting overseas.

    It’s his way to get to the Mar-a-Laughable golf course – just watch.

    This was a diversion to get ahead of the shit-storm that’s coming. The fat dotard is trying to curry favour with the troops, knowing that the fall-out from a story in today’s NY Times will have him hopping. The story says that the daughters of a late NYC podiatrist stated that their father made the bone-spurs diagnosis for fatso to avoid the draft. It turns out that the request was made by old Fred himself. The podiatrist leased a space for his practice in a building that old Fred owned. It’s quite strange that a civilian doctor’s diagnosis was accepted, whereas most draftees were given a medical by a military doctor. Damn fat dotard!!

    All troops were disarmed and had to pass through metal detectors to see the Emperor.. Only the Secret Service had weapons.

      Don’t tell Isis that.

    I feel sorry that the troops had to endure a visit from the draft dodging cadet bone spurs at Christmas since he never has anything positive to contribute.

    Yeah, he did but he managed to act like a “apprentice star” signing autographs both Boris and Natasha are horrid.

    And just when news is breaking of the favor done for Don the Con’s father that saved Don the Con from the draft in the 1960’s. A columnist in the Wash. Post today opined that it doesn’t matter anyway; the war was long ago and lots of guys avoided the draft. Look at how the right pilloried John Kerry who, not only valiantly served twice in Vietnam and was wounded, but had the courage to come to Congress as a veteran to oppose the continuation of the meaningless war. Nope. I won’t give Don the Con a pass on this one. He was only interested in the high life in the 1960’s and 1970’s and the results still show.

      Well they certainly did think the war was long ago when they lambasted Bill Clinton for getting a legitimate college deferment ..they said no one that didn’t go to war was fit to be president, now they are making excuses for draft dodging liar..also isn’t it a crime to lie to the draft board?

    • am December 26, 2018 at 6:11 pm

      How did this happen? Kerry was a real war hero who served but he is vilified which leads to this pos as president? Democrats need to get a real leader with a playbook. Its time to stop being suckers and get moderate and progressive left leaning candidates elected.

    Sounds like he was startled by the Landing in a war zone scared him a bit. I know a regular land can put you on edge at times so he appears to have been enlightened a little bit today.

    “the NRA wanted these doctors to shut up about an issue that touches their lives daily, leading to a record high of nearly 40,000 deaths in 2017, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and around twice as many injuries each year.” “Doctors don’t have a gun problem; they have a bullet hole problem,”
    “This was 1,100 rounds of military-grade ammunition showered on 22,000 people,” “There isn’t another one of these cases.”
    “Whether fatal or not, every shooting ripples outward, touching not only the individuals directly involved but also their families, friends and loved ones, as well as the medical professionals who serve as intermediaries during these painful ordeals.”
    “It can be demoralizing.” “Americans are shielded from death in general,” Lu said, adding that it’s one reason for the lack of compassion and empathy in the gun debate.
    Yet it’s people who lack this exposure, who likely have never seen a gunshot up close and hopefully never will, who are now telling doctors that gun violence is none of their business.”

    Yep the draft dodger LIED to the troops and they know it because they get their paychecks..he told them they haven’t had a raise in 10 years and he is giving them a 10% increase…BOTH ARE LIES…so how are you suppose to respect the so called comander in chief when you know he is lying to your face?

    So much for bringing respect to the office.

    Turns out he OUTED A SECRET SEAL TEAM! That whole Seal team has been outed in his twitter video he posted while hastily retreating from Iraq to Germany. He posted their faces and names and some ranks. That whole team has to be recalled now, because they potentially can be targeted by enemy forces, captured and used as hostages. Their career as Seals is OVER.

        Oh yeah. That’s not good. He really wants out of the job hu?
        Eyeroll. Way to go Donny Brook.

      • Seal Team 5 December 27, 2018 at 6:44 am

        FYI-” we may, indeed, still suck.”
        “He’s afraid of those situations. He’s afraid people are going to kill him.”
        “The surprise visit began with Trump in a bomber jacket, welcomed by a soundtrack of “USA! USA!” chants and the gushing patriotism of Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA.”
        “Our presence in Syria was not open-ended and was never intended to be permanent,” “We’re no longer the suckers folks.”OK

  12. why didn't Melanie show her boobs and pussy to the troops? she already did it for the whole world on the internet already. December 26, 2018 at 8:56 pm

    He no doubt wished there were some steel slats between him and that non-white service member in that one photo.

  13. Georgeanne Wilcox December 27, 2018 at 3:03 am

    Beyond the SEALS fiasco, he called every troop member a sucker. What an asshole.

    FB excerpts>”Was it a political stunt? Of course it was.
    Was it for his own self-aggrandizement?
    “Trump’s visit outed a covert special operations team. SEALs. Compromising their ability to carry out the mission and perhaps even putting their lives at even greater risk than they normally are.
    That’s not Trump’s fault.
    It’s not. Not exactly. Not directly.”
    “It’s the US Military’s fault, specifically the commanders on the ground. The Theater Commander. The base commander. The Special Operations Commander. The SEAL team leaders. THEY are the ones responsible for Operational Security. They’re the experts. The press is in and out of US bases in theater on a daily basis, the enemy is watching all of the time, not just when the President happens to show up.”
    ” I personally directed highly classified operations in the Northern Arabian Gulf during the opening night of the Iraq invasion with CNN less two feet away.” “SEALs are supposed to be invisible, that’s their job. But, instead of maintaining proper OPSEC, keeping a low profile, SEALs grabbed all their gear and posed for selfies and press pictures with Trump in front of the cameras. That’s on them, on their NCO, on their officers, on their commanders.” “They ALL know better. There’s no excuse for this.”
    “Pictures of Air Force and Army officers decked out in MAGA hats and waving Trump flags.
    This is a violation of military regulation, specifically DoD Directive 1344.10 “Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces.”
    “The officers photographed wearing or waving Trump paraphernalia have compromised their ability to command. Any subordinate who happens to hold differing political views would have to suspect prejudicial treatment in such a command environment — which is specifically why this type of partisan behavior in uniform is strictly prohibited.”
    “THIS is how a professional service becomes a tool of oppression and fascism under the camouflage of patriotism and national security. You’re watching it happen.”<Jim Wright

    The Dotard is just that incompetent.
