Trump v. Gorsuch.


Gorsuch appears a stuffed shirt, a thin-skinned ingrate, a willing tool of anti-Trumpists.

But Trump v. Blumenthal is amusing.

Flapdoodle between two draft-dodging liars.

Trump's dig at Blumenthal's military service is a reference to Blumenthal's past misrepresentations about his service during the Vietnam era.

Blumenthal obtained multiple military deferments to avoid getting drafted into the Vietnam War and ultimately landed in the Marine Corps Reserve and never deployed to Vietnam, though he claimed multiple times he had served in Vietnam.

Blumenthal apologized for misrepresenting his service in 2010.

While Blumenthal enlisted in the Marine Reserve after multiple deferments, Trump -- who was also eligible for the draft during the Vietnam War -- never enlisted, instead obtaining multiple student deferments and ultimately a medical deferment for a bone spur to avoid the military draft.

Amazing how many who avoided Vietnam service have worked in or near the Oval Office.

Clinton, Bush, Cheney, Trump.

Likely a host of others.

So many "had other priorities," as Dick Cheney put it.
