Republican Donald Trump claimed American troops embezzled untold millions of dollars meant for rebuilding Iraq during wartime and are “living very well” off those funds at a campaign event Tuesday night.
“Iraq, crooked as hell,” Trump told a crowd in Greensboro, North Carolina. “How about bringing baskets of money – millions and millions of dollars – and handing it out? I wanna know, who are the soldiers that had that job? Because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be.”
While Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told Politico he was referring to Iraqi soldiers, the site noted the billionaire businessman has made similar remarks about U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq in the past.
Jeebus .... Drumpf is really on a mentally unstable roll isn't he? Impugning the integrity of U.S. combat soldiers in Iraq?? Just Wow!!! The Gadfly is curious --- just who in the fuck does the vulgar orangutan have left to insult? The Pope? Oops! Been there, done that! ..... Christ he's even insulted the Pope! ...
There's almost five months to go in this campaign. The way Drumpf is going, by the time election day arrives, the only people pulling the lever for him in the voting booth on election day will be these charming freaks:
