    I just now heard about this.....Trump claimed to have "built" the Vietnam War Veterans memorial in NYC. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    • Donald Trump Insults Vets By Claiming He Sacrifices As Much As Fallen Soldiers
    • A 1984 Washington Post article revealed that while Trump was on the board to get the memorial built, he blew off most of the meetings, “* One official of the Vietnam Commission, who has attended all the meetings, maintains Trump has been to only two or three out of 20 meetings. This was confirmed by another member of the commission. The first time he attended a meeting was to launch the commission, one source says, and the second was when he arrived with a reporter who was profiling him.”

      Trump only showed up the first meeting, and then only showed up again for the sake of publicity when a reporter was doing a story on him.
      (Source)
    Jesus H. Christ! Is there nothing for which that man won't claim to be its raison d'etre?

    The Op is once again showing that the far left will believe anything fitting the latest in debunked religious narratives.

    If you Liberals were fish, I could catch you a hundred times a day on the same piece of tin foil.

    Oh, that explains it then. He was probably too busy destroying the USFL to attend those meetings.
