Cadet Bone Spurs Says to Walk It Off

President Donald Trump’s comment Wednesday that U.S. troops suffering concussion-like symptoms had “not very serious” injuries clashed with a yearslong, hard-fought U.S. military campaign to spread the message that a brain injury is not something to be minimized.
“I heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things,” the president said Wednesday during a news conference in Davos, Switzerland. “But I would say, and I can report, it is not very serious, not very serious.”
That's about what one would expect from a guy who regards soldiers as props in his unreality show.

In the book A Very Stable Genius, Trump is quoted as yelling this at his military chiefs: “I wouldn’t go to war with you people, you’re a bunch of dopes and babies.

Of course Trump wouldn't go to war with anyone, he's got bone spurs.

Having had my eardrums ruptured in the course of firing artillery (peacetime but I'd guess it counts), I had to re read his comment. I thought there had to be more to it. Some context. He is truly beneath contempt.

Perhaps if he had a brain to injure, he'd take brain injuries more seriously. Having had a stroke in 2008 and still using a quad-cane, I could tell him that brain injuries are nothing to fuck with, but like stroke sufferers themselves, he wouldn't believe it until it happened to him.
