Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Last month, President Trump was asked why he hasn't visited a military base in a combat zone. He offered two explanations. He's "very busy" at home, he said, and he doesn't "think it's overly necessary." Last week, the New York Times reported on a third excuse. Trump, aides told the Times, does not believe American troops should be in Afghanistan or Iraq and he fears a visit to the countries "would validate missions he does not truly believe in." On Monday, the Washington Post provided a fourth reason why Trump, who calls himself the most pro-military president ever, hasn't set foot in a war zone: He's afraid.

"He's afraid of those situations. He's afraid people want to kill him."

Wow. Just Wow.

I am sure the Deplorables will justify this somehow in their little minds.

Conservatism is based on fear.

And it spreads by convincing others to be as scared as you are.

But it's still hilarious to see a guy who talks so tough to be such a -----.

He's not just afraid of war zones, he's also afraid of rain and staircases.

No two snowflakes are alike!

Well, other than pretending they're the tough guy and everyone else is weak.

Trump is a scared chickensh#t. It's why he continuously needs to surround himself with sycophants. Especially family members that he thinks are most loyal.

Trump?
Your basic schoolyard bully boy with a glass eye who huffs and puffs from the labor-intensive act of hauling his bloated gut and fat arse around.
