I can only shake my head in disbelief that a man who has “bone spurs” and did not serve in uniform denigrates Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a man who has served his country in uniform, been wounded by an IED and continues to serve his country by pointing out injustice and corruption.

The values of honor, integrity and love of country have been replaced by the Trump administration with deceitfulness, disingenuousness and love of self.

Certainly Trump is a disaster beyond wildest expectations. He will soon return the economy to the shape it was in when Obama took office. More importantly he removed any shred of moral authority Republicans have. These are people who were furious at the Dixie Chicks for making a joke about George W Bush while in England. Now they worship a man who has opening spit on every American POW by saying "I like veterans who weren't captured". Trump only married his second wife because she wouldn't have an abortion, he said so himself on the Howard Stern show. It is heartbreaking as an American to watch so many cheer this racist timeshare condominium salesman wreck our country.
