Smoking Gun Report: Donald Trump was a draft dodger!
Guess what, and SURPRISE, Trump is a draft-dodging pussy. Here are some facts from a 2011 Smoking Gun investigation:

Selective Service records reveal that Trump, the fortunate son of a multimillionaire real estate baron, took repeated steps to avoid serving in Vietnam.

By the time his number (356) was drawn during the December 1, 1969 draft lottery, Trump had already received four student deferments and a medical deferment, according to military records on file with the National Archives and Records Administration. An extract of Trump’s Selective Classification record … was provided in response to a TSG records request.

In fact, the December 1969 draft lottery occurred about 18 months after Trump graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied business at the Wharton School. So, while claiming that he would “never forget” being at Wharton watching the draft numbers being drawn, … Trump seems to have misremembered, as candidates are fond of saying.

Trump’s last get-out-of-draft-free card, in 1968, was different from the others, in that he was out of school, and also in that it was a 1-Y classification, which listed him as fit to be drafted “only in time of national emergency.” In other words, a medical deferment, according to a 1992 Trump biography. We don’t know what medical issues he was having then, but maybe that’s when that thing with his hair started.

Anyhow, we’re still all excited to hear about Trump’s extra secret, super tough guy plans to murder ISIS dead, since his “militaristic” experience hosting reality shows and doing Twitter wars surely makes him the only candidate “militaristic” enough for the job.

Re: Smoking Gun Report: Donald Trump was a draft dodger!
You think he was a kid listening to daddy at that age or simply a coward? Never know but a lot changes in a person by age 69. I'm not voting for that dude either way. The fact the media is bashing him so hard and his poll numbers
"apparently surge," makes me wonder about his authenticity or a simple smoke and mirrors switch because tptb know the populace is simply pissed at them and have about had enough. Reverse psychology I believe is the term. Also lets be frank, cant recall this type of move ever being used so perfectly to sway public opinion. Thoughts? I dont like the guy just saying I dont think hes really anything other than another figure head.

He would have been at Wharton for the draft number selections in 1966, 1967 & 1968 so he is correct in remembering draft selection (just not the 1969 that the author assumes).

Medical deferments were common. You had more soap digested in the 60's to fake kidney ailments than could fill a store shelf. Trump's medical problems could have been legit but the author has an agenda so we must assume a draft dodger is running for president.

Re: Smoking Gun Report: Donald Trump was a draft dodger!
So Trump makes a speech and calls himself the "most militaristic person in the room"?

So while Donald Trump goes off on how he is the most macho when it comes to the military, his records show he never once served this nation. A list of deferments, two legitimate ones reversed, kept him from taking part in the Vietnam War.

Another Republican wanting to send America’s men and women overseas to fight their wars when they have never served themselves. This is becoming a trend in the GOP: a bunch of scared, old men who sit in their thousand dollar suits while young Americans die or get injured. Looks like Donald Trump is their newest member.

Trump wasn't a draft dodger. A draft dodger is a man who leaves the United States to dodge the draft.

Trump did have 5 draft deferments which anyone with half a brain attempted to get.

Which back then was the way to go.

What else do you want to whine about?

It might just be a sign that he is willing to do what he has to do in order to be successful. I am not a fan of the draft anyway.

Re: Smoking Gun Report: Donald Trump was a draft dodger!
McCain pretty much had to go because of his family history in serving in the military. Clinton dodge too, while Bush had his dad arrange for him to be in the reserves and never served active combat. In fact Bush was kicked out for drugs and AWL, and his daddy got that dropped too, because he wanted his boy in politics. Obama if he was old enough was also college deferred. So basically, we know the wealthy don't serve in the military honestly. They are a bunch of chicken hawks. At least Donald supports the troops though in the most sincere manner I have seen since Reagan.

Oh please, not this crap again. Everyone who could get a student deferment got one. No one wanted to go die in a jungle for a war that made no sense.
