In their latest ad The Lincoln Project calls President Donald Trump of being a “draft dodger.” Trump got five draft deferments, including one allegedly for nonexistent bone spurs, to avoid serving in the U.S. Military, yet today he is America’s Commander-in-Chief.

The Lincoln Project calls him a “dishonorable coward” who is “unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.”

The ad slams Trump for saying the late Senator John McCain was not a war hero, and for refusing to honor America’s soldiers who gave their lives in battle.

“He refused to visit the cemetery of our fallen in France, saying, ‘Why should I go to that cemetery, it’s filled with losers?'” the ad reminds Americans.

“Trump said of Americans who died fighting for their country, ‘I don’t get it, what was in it for them?'”

“No Trump family member has ever served in the military but Donald Trump said that dating was like going to Vietnam.”

“On November 3rd, it’s time to throw this loser coward out of our White House,” it concludes.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) on Wednesday sought to excuse President Donald Trump's refusal to disavow a far-right extremist group.

At Tuesday night's presidential debate, Trump was asked to speak out against the neo-fascist Proud Boys group.

"Proud Boys, stand back and stand by!" Trump replied.

On Wednesday, Scott was given a chance to comment on the remark during a meeting with Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

“I think he misspoke in response to Chris Wallace's comment," Scott said. "I think he misspoke. I think he should correct it, if he doesn't correct it, I guess he didn't misspeak.”

No one with ‘an IQ over 80’ should not see Trump as a ‘sociopath’ on the debate stage: Conservative editor

Published

On Tuesday, writing for The Bulwark, conservative editor Jonathan Last tore into President Donald Trump's performance at the first presidential debate on Tuesday evening in Cleveland.

"Honestly: I cannot understand how anyone with an IQ over 80 could have watched this disgrace and not come away understanding that the president of the United States is a sociopath," wrote Last. "But I’ll try to put myself in the mind of voters and tell you what I saw."

"He was a doughy, orange honey-badger, yelling, shouting, cajoling, needling and — this is the important part — never shutting up," wrote Last. "If you are a fan of the Trump lifestyle brand — if you have a Trump flag on your boat and wear a MAGA hat because you love pissing off the brown girl with the nose ring at Starbucks — then I suspect that you thought this was the greatest performance by any debater in the history of debates ... On the other hand, it’s not clear to me that Trump’s act was effective with undecided voters."
