Your a ass-wipe,  Here is what Trumps said.

“When you talk about the mental health problems — when people come back from war and combat, and they see things

that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it. But a lot of

people can’t handle it,”

I know dems are truthfully challenged but what a load of crap. I am a disabled veteran and I know exactly what he  meant. 

Some veterans can't handle living with the lasting effects of war,  even the strongest of the strong have problems trying to

deal with what they faced.   The Marine that asked the question was not offended either.       

Rl

KEYWORDS: and you’re strong and you can handle it

Twitter replys: I guess my buddy who I deployed with, who suffered from PTSD, and who took his own life wasn't as strong as a roomful of Trump's supporters.

another twitter reply:  Yeah, this part is not helpful. "Being strong" and/or "being able to handle it" is the wrong message on PTSD/suicide and perpetuates stigma.

    Trump Implies Vets Suffering From PTSD 'Can't Handle' War

    Donald Trump has come under fire for comments he made during a Q&A with retired veterans Tuesday morning.

    Speaking with the Retired American Warriors PAC in Virginia, the Republican nominee suggested veterans suffering from PTSD are not "strong" and "can't handle" the stresses of war.

    "When people come back from war and combat and they see things that, maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you're strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can't handle it," Trump said.

    Trump later vowed to have a "very robust performance" when it came to dealing with veterans and mental health care.

    Trump's comments received swift criticism from leaders of veterans organizations. Jon Soltz, an Iraq War Veteran and chairman of VoteVets.org, said Trump's statements perpetuate the stigma around mental health and PTSD in the military.

    "The fact is, dealing with the mental wounds from war has nothing to do about someone's strength," Soltz said in a statement. "If Donald Trump took even three seconds trying to understand and respect our veterans, he'd understand that."

        Hey goober... You're the "poorly educated one".  Trump's story is really incredible.  He built an empire, in the recession he (as did many) lost money; in fact, he was a billion dollars in debt and came out of it to where he is today (A ten billion dollar business).  I'd say he is a brilliant businessman.  What are Hillary's accomplishments? 

        As for not paying federal taxes... You don't like it?  Change the tax code.  Everything he did was legal.  BTY, who in their right mind would pay more to the IRS than they have to?  Do you?  Not even Bernie Sanders does.  And that's a fact Jack!

        "Trump's story is really incredible."

        Trump is a con-man that convinced gullible people that he can do what no other President did. Actually I'm being kind by using "gullible" because you're simply uneducated and ignorant of how our government works; hint Congress. Do you think Trump is running for dictator?

        "As for not paying federal taxes..."

        You are truly ignorant. Trump lost $916 million; there was no taxable income.

        "You don't like it? Change the tax code."

        Unlike some of the LP members who criticise how jackpot winners spend their winnings, I could care less about Trump or anyone's failed business ventures that don't effect me. And why the majority won't vote for a moron with business decisions so bad it lost almost $1 billion in just one year.

        "Everything he did was legal. "

        The concept of "no taxable income" must really be confusing you. You're correct on one thing, there was no law in 1995 preventing Trump's casinos from legally losing almost $1 billion.

        "BTY, who in their right mind would pay more to the IRS than they have to?"

        Probably never occurred to you, but that's exactly what everyone that gets a tax refund is doing.

        Even some of the top Republicans wonder why Trump hasn't released his tax returns, but the only question asked about his 1995 return is the extraordinary loses. Maybe you're the only one that doesn't know that people with zero income pay zero in taxes. Have any more useless information or childish insults to add?

              You started it, I'd like to see you finish it. If you needed the next 3 hours to laugh about it, you were the only one laughing.

              In fact, the only laughing matter here is your plain stupidity.

              When you get off your Trump bashing hind end and get over there where the real terror takes place everyday and live it, 

              experience it, have fear of it and cry for it and see the ongoing daily death and destruction terrorists cause and your buddy

              is bleeding to death in your arms and rpg's, roadside bombs and bullets are blowing your friends to bits instead of talking

              about what lie CNN and the likes are spinning as truth for you lemmings to follow like robots, then I might take you seriously.

              But until then, you are the only one besides Hillary and her team of rats that thinks this is funny to come down on Trump for

              wanting to protect this country. You're just another comfortable nobody in my book. Content in business as usual until it affects

              you directly of course. Then you will have more than enough to say about it but let me tell you what, by then it's too late and 

              no one will care because you will be in the minority that allowed themselves to be mislead, used and abused. And you will be

              to blame for that because you failed to see what the witch had in store for you. 

              So the next time you decide to troll a forum because you didn't like the response you got on another, think before you type.

              Your senseless analogies concerning Trumps desire to keep out all Islamic immigrants until a safe screening process is in place

              shows you are a senseless, uneducated, patsy who jumps on the bandwagon just because you don't have gusto to stand on your

              own two feet. Going with the 'in' crowd is easy, bash Trump without a reason, take what he says and cut it up, twist it and define

              it according to what you think you heard instead of actually hearing what the man is saying.

              I do not see the humor at all in your callous representations of equivalent measures regarding his implementation of a safeguard

              for our country. Such a measure might prevent, by not allowing them instant passage, the savage threat to our country by an

              individual or a few individuals who have questionable backgrounds or direct, obvious ties to beliefs that tell them to hate all of us

              and rid the earth of us. The kind of thinking you're exhibiting by taking on Hillary's view that it's racist to even think of not allowing

              immigrants from terrorist hot spots into our country because otherwise we are 'phobic' gets people killed. 

              We have a right in our own country to reject and refuse anyone entry on the grounds of suspicion. Think a 9/11 will never happen

              again? Keep relaxing, keep your guard down, keep being comfortable. Trump's plan is a good one, it's not racist, it's self preserving

              in more ways than one. His screening process and desire to refuse entry and settlement into this great country might just save you're

              sorry azz one day.

              Make sure you don't overcook the fries at your station, the buzzer will be going off soon. What a dope you are, they saw you coming a mile away.

              Maybe we should deport morons too, I'll pay for your one way ticket to Moron land.

              BTW genius, next time you call me anything, remember to use paragraphs, but I doubt you know what they are, loser !

                RL 

                "I am a disabled veteran and I know exactly what he  meant."

                I was in combat and saw men huddled in bunkers uncontrollably weeping with fear during mortar and rocket attacks. Trump wasn't there and if you "know exactly what he meant", you weren't there either.

                "Some veterans can't handle living with the lasting effects of war,  even the strongest of the strong have problems trying todeal with what they faced."

                I've known a WWII Marine Vet for over 40 years and he got the "shakes" on Iwo Jima and still has them today. But because he wasn't there, Trump has no clue about the mental health issues of wounded warriors from 70 years ago and today.

                "and you’re strong and you can handle it. But a lot of people can’t handle it, "

                Only the son of a multi-millionaire that never served because he had flat feet would say all the soldiers that "can't handle it" are weaklings.

                  It's just another in a long line of places where Trump shouldn't go, but just can't help himself.

                  PTSD in the US military is nothing new, there are examples from the Revolutionary War. Saying those soldiers returning with it are weaklings is par for the course for Trump. He said John McCain and all POWs are not heroes: "He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured".

                      You're really a confused person aren't you.  Amazing how you twist things around to suit your agenda.  Trump is a genius businessman.  Its the contract he made with the banks lending him money that prevented him from going out of business... If he went down, they went down. 

                      Of course he had no taxable income, a child could understand what I posted.  And I'm the ignorant one stack?  LOL

                      There was a recession in the 90's that caused many in the realestate business to go under.  It had nothing to do with his business decisions. 

                      I'm not the confused one here stack.  We getting a little senile in our old age stack?

                            GOP distances itself from Trump -- again:

                             

                            Donald Trump -- struggling to move past a week of one controversy after another -- is making clear that he's willing to go it alone in the final weeks of the campaign.

                            As the Republican nominee tries to recover from one of his toughest stretches, few prominent GOP leaders -- other than those who advise him or are on his payroll -- seem willing to launch a full-throated rescue effort.
                            So Trump sought to do the heavy lifting himself Monday, delivering a feisty speech here that attempted to reframe the campaign and extract him from the quagmire of the past week, which included a disappointing debate performance, a roiling controversy over whether he paid taxes, and ill-advised attacks on a Latina beauty queen -- a feud he couldn't seem to let go.

                              Breaking news... Clinton Foundation computer hacked by Guccifer 2.0.  One of the files are named "Pay for play".  Another indicates TARP money was sent to some democrats.  Should be interesting.  Daily Caller has the story.
