But really? Trump said he had a "very high" selective service number, and that kept him out of Viet Nam?
No. Not quite true. When you make a statement to the media that is not true, that's called lying. And that's what Trump was engaging in when he said what he did.

"Deferments Helped Trump Dodge Vietnam
How the presidential aspirant avoided fighting for his country
APRIL 28--Despite Donald Trump’s claim this week that he avoided serving in the Vietnam War solely due to a high draft number, Selective Service records show that the purported presidential aspirant actually received a series of student deferments while in college and then topped those off with a medical deferment after graduation that helped spare him from fighting for his country, The Smoking Gun has learned.
During a TV interview Tuesday morning, Trump--who spent his high school years enrolled at the New York Military Academy--said, “I actually got lucky because I had a very high draft number. I’ll never forget, that was an amazing period of time in my life.”
He went on to recall, “I was going to the Wharton School of Finance, and I was watching as they did the draft numbers and I got a very, very high number and those numbers never got up to.” The word “deferment” was not mentioned by Trump during his chat with the morning show hosts on WNYW, the Fox affiliate in New York City.
However, 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, seen here, was provided in response to a TSG records request."
Meanwhile, Mr. Comb Over, what exactly were those unbelievable things you said your investigators were finding--you know, the ones you sent to Hawaii to look for Mr. Obama's birth certificate?
Could those unbelievable things be that they found out you are a grandstanding, race-baiting, cockerel whose narcissistic strutting and bragging make you look like the The Clown of the Planet?
Yes, I guess this charlatan should be very proud of himself for being the biggest blundering asshat in the country.
This is the guy that the GOPers have winning the nomination for their party right now. He leads all the rest of the pack in the polls.
