Those Handy Bone Spurs

PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump has produced a letter from his podiatrist to avoid serving with the Russian forces massing on the border of Ukraine.

Although Trump has not yet been drafted into the Russian Army, he has been “living in terror” of receiving a draft notice from Vladimir Putin, a source close to the former President said

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Go read the whole thing.

I'm a Vietnam veteran who got drafted in 1969. Well before he became President, I read where he dodged the draft by claiming he had bone spurs. His father got a foot doctor (a tenent in one of his buildings) to write a letter claiming he had bone spurs. From then on, I despised this draft dodger. Now I despise him more because he is a poor excuse for a human being.

Same here except I joined in September 1969 for reasons which now escape me. I've heard lots of reasons why military service is not possible but 'bone spurs'? But in this case the draft officials were right. Can you imagine this cowardous tub of orange goo in the fighting position next to you? His fright shits would float you out of the foxhole during an assault. We were lucky bone spurs donny stayed at home to fight the was of the sexist, in his own words. And ended up a mental vegetable casualty of that war anyway from tertiary syphilis. Sad. But just.
