Guess who wanted the Medal of Honor

Trump admitted Saturday that after he flew to Iraq aboard Air Force One that he wanted to give himself the Medal of Honor — the country’s highest award for military valor in action — but was told he wasn’t allowed to.“

As president, I wanted to give myself the Congressional Medal of Honor, but they wouldn’t let me do it…they said that would be inappropriate,” Trump said on July 23 at the Turning Point USA summit

If it was posthumously I would consider it an even trade.

General Bonespurs knows what's appropriate or not.

If it were any other past President telling it with that delivery, I'd say it was obviously a joke.

With 45* though, it's a coin toss whether he's joking or it's a typical BSC act that was kiboshed.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Sounds like something he would say.

He needs something to balance out his purple heart.

I’m 100% positive that the man who believes he deserved 3 terms because liberals were “mean” to him, who believes that abandoning democracy for his sake is reasonable, and that he deserves a place on Mt Rushmore, believes that he deserves the Medal of Honor.

I hope the most lasting legacy of his life is his appearance in psychology textbooks as an example of toxic narcissism and/or megalomania.

Former President Donald Trump appeared flustered when he was booed at a rally in Arizona on Friday when speaking about one of his recent Congress endorsements.

Trump, used to adulation from his super-loyal MAGA followers, looked uncomfortable when he hyped Eli Crane, a candidate in the Arizona GOP congressional primary, and the crowd responded negatively, in large part.

...The former president appeared surprised and repeatedly looked towards the source of the booing before smiling awkwardly.

"But you like me, right?" Trump then says to the crowd with an awkward chuckle.

The man is pathological.

Not really. He doesn't really get humor and when he says something like that you can be sure he's serious.

My thought exactly.

I had the thought, maybe if he hadn't been talked out of giving himself the medal, perhaps that would have finally lost him some of his diehard supporters.

Oh well, he was talked out of it. And his supporters seem to forgive almost anything he does.

He could have given himself the medal (or let Pence give it to him) in front of the CIA Memorial Wall.

He is a great joke teller, whenever he says something that's totally BSC, he always walks is back the next day or so with "I was joking" or "it was a joke".

ug, I'm kind of disappointed that he didn't go through with it. I don't understand how we was dissuaded.

Don't forget that his 'Personal Vietnam' involved unprotected sex with many young women.


Yes, he said that too.
