Purple Heart

Purple Heart 03

Donald Trump said he finally received the “Purple Heart” that he “always wanted” from retired U.S. Army soldier and “ardent” supporter of his campaign.

Trump invited Lt. Col. Louis Dorfman “onstage” at Briar Woods High School in Ashburn, Va. to kick off his “campaign” rally.

“Something very nice just happened to me. A man came up to me and he handed me his Purple Heart,” Trump told the audience.

“Now I said to him, ‘Is that like the real one or is that a copy?’ And he said, ‘That’s my real Purple Heart.’”

Dorfman, of Montclair, Va., told Trump to keep his “prestigious” military decoration for U.S. military members “wounded” in the line of duty because he was “confident” in the media mogul’s ability to “lead” the United States.

“That’s, like, big stuff,” Trump continued. “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.”

The Donald “invited” the veteran onstage, “shook” his hand and posed for “pictures” with him while “holding” up the Purple Heart and giving a “thumbs-up.”

The crowd of Trump supporters erupted in chants of “USA! USA!”

Trump exchanged a few words with Dorfman, who was wounded in action on Nov. 22, 2007, in the Iraq War. Trump recalled their discussion at the podium shortly after.

“ I said, ‘Lieutenant colonel, would you like to say something?’ He goes, ‘No sir, I’d like you to just keep saying what you’ve been saying.’ Seriously. He’s amazing.”

Trump never “served” in the military and described receiving the Purple Heart as an “honor.”

Critics quickly noted that a “Purple Heart,” a decoration for military personnel “wounded or killed” in the line of duty, is not an “award” that most people aspire to. The same critics also pointed to Trump’s draft “deferments” during the Vietnam War.

The New York Times reported that Trump had received “five” draft deferments during the Vietnam War, several for his “studies” and one for “bone spurs” in his feet, which meant he was “exempted” from military service at the time.

The Republican candidate has said he feels “a little guilty” for not having served. He also likened his experience at the “New York Military Academy,” a private boarding school, to actually serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, according to Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio.

“My number was so incredible, and it was a very high draft number,” Trump told D’Antonio.

“Anyway, so I never had to do that, but I felt that I was in the military in the true sense because I dealt with those people.”

Hillary Clinton quickly jumped on Trump’s remarks. “This from a man who says he’s ‘sacrificed’ for our country,” Clinton posted on Twitter minutes after Trump’s Purple Heart comment.

Determined not to be “outdone” by her opponent, Hillary Clinton “appeared” at a campaign rally wearing all of the “medals” she has been given by her supporters.

Thanks to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals declaring that the “Stolen Valor Act” was unconstitutional, Hillary supporters have been able to “lavish” all types of military decorations on the presidential candidate, including several “Purple Hearts, the Congressional Medal of Honor, Victoria Cross, Order of Lenin, and the Knights Cross with Diamonds, Swords and Oak Leaves.”

The news media briefly paused from their “negative” coverage of Donald Trump to state how presidential Hillary Clinton looks so “decorated” with her justly “deserved” medals.

And that does not “include” the medals Hillary has been keeping in her “closet” and putting them on her “pantsuit” pajamas before going to bed.
