Poor trumpeteers...the moment they start using childish nick-names for their beloved idol they know they are loosing ground.

Lets wait what comes out of the investigations, maybe the reps need a new candidate.

It turns out that Trump and Warren have something in common. Both of their forebears sold real estate in Manhattan. :lol:


Thanks for the info, did Warren's grandfather avoid army service, and as a result get refused permission to re-enter the country of his birth too? :unsure: .

Senator Warren's paternal grandfather, Grant Leslie Herring (1887–1969), was born in Missouri. Her maternal grandfather, Harry Gunn Reed (1872–1956), was born in Illinois. Both being native born Americans, there was never any question of being refused re-entry to their country of birth since neither ever left.

As far as military service goes, Grant Herring (no relation to Red) would have been 30 years old in 1917 when the WWI draft was begun to send Americans overseas to rescue England for the first time in the last century. Since he was married and had children by then he would have initially received an exemption on those grounds. Harry Reed would have been 45 in 1917 and thus too old to be drafted.

Am I correct in assuming that your reference to avoiding military service was a jab at former President Bill Clinton for his numerous successful attempts to escape service during the Vietnam War? smile.png

It will be real bedlam for many Democrats if Trump wins once again in 2020. Liberals, especially University students - be prepared and catch those after holiday Black Friday shopping sprees, making sure to stock up on tons of coloring books, stuffed animals, and especially soft facial tissues to dry those tears. Poor babies will need solace and hugs. :S

I'd better not answer your question on the grounds in might incriminate me, having vowed to keep out of threads concerning US politics for a year or so. :blush: :kiss: .

However, as you've asked so nicely, and didn't mention the unmentionable one, I admit I wasn't referring to her husband, not least because I'd assumed him to be too young .

So it seems Trump has lost another Court battle, though he never really expects to win these fights they are only delaying tactics, this time his appeal against the ability of Congress to see his taxes was struck out by the Court of Appeals and a lower Court ruling that he must hand over his taxes upheld. This is only one of several cases with regards to Trump having to reveal his taxes to appropriate bodies requesting them and he hasn't yet won any. Like all the others, this matter is destined for the SCOTUS where he no doubt hopes his Judicial political henchmen will see it his way, after all why else appoint them if not for them to do you favors.

Trump knows that release of his taxes would be not just a blow to all his false bragging about wealth over the years but to his chances of re-election as well.

Trump really doesn't like his allies, or more correctly the allies of the USA. He just issued a directive to screw over another one, South Korea, by demanding they pay 500% more for the "privileged" of having US troops stationed on the Peninsula.

Nobody in the Defence Department knows where the figure came from and they certainly don't know how to explain it to the South Koreans. Trump could well end up being the President that saw the US lose the War that has been ongoing for over 60 years and hand the North it's greatest coup. He has also shown again his disdain for friendships and his love of money.

Don't think any of Warrens forbearers went bankrupt five times, or cheated on valuations of property.

Not only his grandfather, but the drump also got several deferments for school and of course the fabled bone spurs.
I noticed when Clinton studied at Oxford and got a student deferment, the Republican's went crazy over the draft dodger.

Those little things are not remembered by trumps fans...like the ´patriotism´ grandpa showed his country of birth...and by leaving the US to go back to Bavaria, only to return because Bavaria banned him.

"Royal decree ordered Friedrich Trumpf to leave Bavaria and never come back after he failed to do military service."

"After completing his apprenticeship, he returned to Kallstadt, a village with about 1,000 inhabitants. He was approaching the age of eligibility for conscription to military service in the Imperial German Army. He quickly decided to emigrate to the United States.

The immigration records list his name as Friedr. Trumpf.

Years later, his family members said that he departed secretly at night, leaving his mother a note.
As a result of fleeing mandatory conscription required of all citizens a royal decree was later issued banishing him from the country."
