Fox News’ Steve Doocy didn’t let a little thing like Donald Trump’s draft deferments put a dent in his suggestion that Trump would have been just like a Navy SEAL – if only he had actually served his country instead of attacking those who did.
In a fawning Fox & Friends interview today, Trump defended his childish stunt of giving out Senator Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number. “I did it for fun and everybody had a good time,” Trump said. By the way, unlike Trump, Graham has years of service in the Air Force and he still serves in the Air Force Reserves.
“He calls me names. You have to fight back,” Trump said, sounding like a grade schooler.
But to Doocy, that sounded heroic! He echoed other Fox News hosts by suggesting John McCain and Graham got what they deserved from this fabulous badass.
DOOCY: It started with John McCain last week, referred to the big crowd you had out in Phoenix as “crazies.” Then yesterday, you got Lindsey Graham, who used that inappropriate word about you. You know what? As somebody told me yesterday, Donald Trump is like a Navy SEAL: he never backs down when he’s in a fight.
Watch the slobbering below, from the July 22 Fox & Friends.
You beat me to it, ez. Guess I should have read through the other replies first. :-)
Comparing Trump, a bloviating egomaniac who deliberately avoided serving in the military, to the Navy SEALS Special Ops who are ready to actually die for their country? What kind of bizarro world is Daddy Douchey living in?! Talk about disrespect for the military! In light of Douchey’s decision to suck up to Trump by repeating that bit of insanity on air, I’d say he’s the one who is more like a seal – a trained seal in the Ailes/GOP circus.
Douchey: “As somebody told me yesterday, Donald Trump is like a Navy SEAL…”
Is “as somebody told me” the latest FOX “news” reincarnation of “some say”? LOL! When someone tells you something entirely ridiculous, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should repeat it on air, Douchey, you fool. (eye roll)
With that kind of negotiation skill, we’ll never have to worry about running out of wars.
