The accusation is that on various occasions, President Trump referred to dead soldiers as "losers" and "suckers." Well, we don't care.
Oh, we'd care - some - if it were true. But who knows anymore what's true and what's just more baldfaced lying? Why should we care what unnamed (and possibly nonexistent) "sources" with zero credibility are alleged to have said? How can we ever know with certainty what Donald Trump did or didn't say, or what his words might have meant?
Which is why the only reasonable thing to do is ignore words and look at deeds. Donald Trump has rebuilt the strength of the military after it was pillaged by the Obama-Biden administration. Donald Trump has seen to it that our troops have received pay raises. Trump visits the troops, greets injured soldiers at their hospital beds, and comforts families. And President Trump has made real improvements to the VA hospital system which was nightmarishly bad under Obama-Biden...
Oh sure, Obama and Biden said the right things about our troops - but without a scintilla of sincerity. Does the media really want to talk about how an American president treated our fallen...?
A quick refresher on the cartoon above: Major General Harold Greene was the highest ranking soldier killed in Afghanistan, but Barack Obama showed himself to be also highly rank when he decided to go golfing instead of attending the funeral.
Were our fallen soldiers being properly honored when the Obama-Biden administration swapped the traitorous Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists who could resume killing our troops? Or when Bergdahl, a deserter, was lauded by the Obama-Biden administration as exemplifying the best of our troops...?
And then there's Benghazi. Where Obama and Biden left our people to die, denying them aid, then later enjoyed a photo-op by their flag-draped coffins before lying to the grieving families that they would catch the filmmaker who was to blame for the attack.
But to be fair, Joe Biden has been known to say good things about American troops. For instance, soon after the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden, Biden gushed and gushed about Seal Team Six. After which, the bad guys knew who to kill - and did, three months later. Biden was personally named in a $200 million lawsuit filed by the families of the fallen for his role in exposing the identity of the military unit.
We could go on, almost endlessly, but hopefully our point is made. Even if Trump said the things he's accused of (and let's face it, Trump could conceivably say anything at any time), his deeds have shown him to be a strong supporter of our military and our people in uniform. And that's the only thing that should count when Americans cast their votes.

BREAKING COVID-19 NEWS, PLEASE READ (HONEST!)
You're sick of hearing about Covid-19 and we're sick of writing about it. We're also sick of all the nonsense and politicization associated with the pandemic. But there's some good news - potentially very good news - and we want to get it out there.
You can get the whole story by watching this video, but here's the bottom line: Vitamin D3 may be the most effective drug for the treatment of Covid-19, and making sure you're not Vitamin D deficient may be the cheapest, easiest, and most powerful means of treating the disease and fighting its effects.
Briefly, a legit study was run on 75 patients admitted to a hospital for Covid-19. All received the same treatment with one exception: 50 patients got a Vitamin D supplement and 25 didn't. Only 2% of the Vitamin D group had their cases worsen to the point they needed ICU treatment. The number was 50% for those who didn't get Vitamin D. Everyone in the Vitamin D group recovered, but two people in the non-Vitamin D group died. Other institutions have done similar studies and gotten similar results.
This is actual science we're talking here (again, check out the video). And note that it takes several days for a Vitamin D3 supplement to be processed by your liver, so the time to start taking a daily supplement is before you get sick. Personally, this is the brand we're taking and it's stupid-cheap. Less than 2¢ a day to dramatically better your odds (and those of your loved ones).
By all means consult with your doctor to make sure you won't have any problems. And for legal reasons we should probably officially state that we're not giving medical advice, that we're not doctors, that we're not even the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree, and we're not always cold sober while writing this blog.
But 2¢ a day is, almost unimaginably, even less than what we spend on Clan Macgregor.
