Trump Silent About Marine Deaths -- And He's The Right's Hero




Remember how the 30 percenters lost their minds if President Obama didn't IMMEDIATELY! acknowledge the deaths of any military personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty?

I remember how they jumped on any perceived misstep concerning respect for the military during Mr. Obama's presidency and how they howled like hyenas over their perception of said disrespect.

Three Marines lost their lives over the weekend and not one word from the 30 percenter's Liar-in-Chief, the Liar-in-Chief who lies about loving the military (he doesn't; he only loves himself and, possibly, his kids).

However, Trump did have time to crash a wedding at his golf club in Bedminster and to rage-twitter a number of tweets about Senator Blumthal.

We won't hear one word of disparagement from the 30 percenters who still support the Creep-in-Chief because they are this century's monumental hypocrites and dishonorable Americans who've placed a miserable con artist and b.s.er above country and the military, even if the 30 percenters pretend to support our troops. Don't ever believe their FAKE concern so long as they excuse the rotten dereliction of duty as the so-called CiC ignores the Marines' deaths. 



Three Marines Are Missing And Presumed Dead In Australia, 

Donald Trump’s Response Is DISGUSTING And SHAMEFUL 

There is sad news to report from Australia. An Australian Navy survey ship has located a U.S. Marine Corps aircraft that crashed over the weekend, leaving three Marines missing and presumed dead.



Lt. Gen. Lawrence Nicholson, the commanding general of III Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF)‎, thanked Australia for its help in his own statement on Monday.

"I want to thank the Australian Defence Force, and the crew of the HMAS Melville in particular, for their assistance in the search and recovery effort of our MV-22 that went down off the coast of Australia,” Nicholson said. “They volunteered their help before we could even ask, demonstrating their friendship and value as international partners. The crew of the Melville and its assets have been invaluable in the recovery effort. On behalf of the Marines, sailors, and families of III MEF, I thank you for your support.”
And how did President Trump respond?
HE DIDN’T.
Instead, Trump went on a 9-tweet tirade, attacking the press, claiming “fake news”, and attacking Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal.
Today also happens to be Purple Heart Day.
Trump’s lack of response is telling, and Twitter pointed that out:

I just heard on FOX NUZ that the White House is having some renovations done while Trump is on vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, and that the White House's interior decorator has installed a new plaque in the Oval Office.

Terrorism only matters if it happens to your "side". At least that's the lesson we can learn from DJT. And the rest of the extremist vultures on the right.

But of course in the world of many blogging on the right, "moslems" and "vermin" are not worthy of American rights so it's okay to kill them. Just as we did to the "heathens" and "savages" years ago.

Anything else would be uncivilized...

KanaW said...

I'm sure that Trump will be perfectly happy with the new plaque, Shaw, as long as they remember to gild it... /snark

skudrunner said...

The renovations were approved by BHO and set to begin the summer of 2017. Again no news here but you did try to blame DJT.
What is he suppose to say about the missing Marines and the mosque bombings. Maybe the Marines are missing and there was a mosque bombing. Again no news here.
What do you think about him getting the UN to take a stance against Korea. I know he should have drawn a line in the sand and expect Putin to pull him out but he actually lead from the front. What a change!!

Dave: "But of course in the world of many blogging on the right, "moslems" and "vermin" are not worthy of American rights so it's okay to kill them."

Fortunately, a majority of Americans don't agree with the people who believe all "Moslems" are "vermin." Those who slander 1.6 billion people are not normal, they're this century's Nazi-like mobs who believed all Jews were "vermin." In fact, that's the term the Nazis used to describe Jews, so it was easy to march them to the death camps, once they dehumanized them. The Nazis were proved to be inhuman monsters and history will forever remember their crimes against humanity.

The people today who call Muslims vermin are as stomach-turning monsters as those who slandered an entire religion in the 1930s Germany.

BTW, your impersonator has been here a couple times today. I deleted two of his comments, but I think the "Dave" in the comment section in the post below is one and the same.

Dave Miller said...

I'm flattered someone would try to use my name and impersonate me. But all who know me can see through him, or her...

Thanks...

SKUD: "The renovations were approved by BHO and set to begin the summer of 2017. Again no news here but you did try to blame DJT."

SKL Here's what I wrote: "I just heard on FOX NUZ that the White House is having some renovations done while Trump is on vacation at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, and that the White House's interior decorator has installed a new plaque in the Oval Office."

There is no blame in that statement, just the fact that there's a renovation going on and a joke at the end of the statement.


Skud: "What is he suppose to say about the missing Marines and the mosque bombings. Maybe the Marines are missing and there was a mosque bombing. Again no news here."


SK: And you've missed the point of my post. The wingnuts went berserk whenever military deaths happened and Mr. Obama didn't acknowledge them with a statement. But the wingnuts have been silent about Trump's silence over the Marine deaths. Perhaps a tweet saying the Marines' families are in his thoughts? Y'know, like a normal president, but Trump's not normal. He did find the time to attack a U.S. senator, so there's that.

skudrunner: "What do you think about him getting the UN to take a stance against Korea. I know he should have drawn a line in the sand and expect Putin to pull him out but he actually lead from the front. What a change!!"

SK: If you think that was Trump's doing, I have a promise to build a wall in Mexico I'd like to make to you. Trump doesn't know diddly squat about foreign policy. Some general or someone who knows what he or she's doing did that and let Donnie take the credit.

Does Trump even know where North Korea is?

Anonymous said...


Did it ever cross your mind that Trump may have personally called the families of the missing marines.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anonymous, 73% of Americans do not believe what Trump says. 7 out of 10 Americans do not trust what comes out of Trump's mouth. So, no, it didn't cross my mind because even if Trump says he called the families, I would not believe it until I had proof. Trump is a liar and a b.s.er.

I believe nothing he says.

Dave Miller said...

Anon... of course it did. But many on the right never gave President Obama the benefit of the doubt on those types of things did they?

You see where this is headed?

The right started the "if you ain't with us, you're against us" tripe after 9/11. The Bush Admin and conservative America decided what was American and what was UnAmerican and if you did not fall into line, you were cast out.

American Muslims were demonized simply because they did not go along with the jingoism of the supposed American patriots. And the right sat there approving of the way people who opposed the Bush Admin and the extremism of the GOP we're labeled as Anti American.

Along came President Obama and he was different. He didn't play politics well and he was called a Communist. He was criticized for not meeting with soldiers families or for not calling them. And no one from the right, or the GOP, stepped up to offer a different view, such as yours.

Tell us, you and Skud, why should Trump get some grace from the American left? Why should he not be treated the same way the right treated President Obama.

Anyone?

Well Dave, its just that 90% of the anti-Trump stuff on this blog is so damn petty.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Anonymous, no one forces you to come here and read my blog. Yours is a minority opinion. My readers do not agree with you.

Anonymous said...



Well....perhaps your readers are just a bit petty.

Shaw Kenawe said...

My readers are intelligent. You seem to be the petty one and a scold. No one asked you to come here. You don't like my opinions? Why are you here?

You righties are a strange group.

Kevin Robbins said...

A few weeks back a plane crash in Mississippi killed 16 servicemembers. The only remarks I believe Trump made was a tweet saying he and Melania expressed condolences. Maybe Skud can prove me wrong and find an actual statement of more than 140 characters.

Kevin Robbins said...

Does anonymous find the death of servicepeople petty?

Dave Miller said...

Anon... today we were told by s Trump surrogate that it's best to wait for all the facts before commenting on the MN bombing. The problem with that, and many other Trump pronouncements is that he's never done that before. He's been very quick to label attacks terrorism in the past, facts be damned.

Why wait now?

The clear implication is because Muslims were attacked and his base hates them.

I do t see that as petty.

What is petty is a POTUS who refuses to admit failure, mistakes and falsehoods... and one vindictive enough to call people names.

Trump is the definition of petty.

Anon, I don't mean to speak out of turn, but, you're full of s*it. Just like the rest of the 33%'ers.
