Twitter erupts into mockery after draft-dodger Donald Trump tweets about Vietnam War Veterans Day with a straight face: “Bone spurs and sex is your personal Vietnam,” one user tweeted.
Trump tweeted: “On this Vietnam War Veterans Day, we celebrate the brave Vietnam Veterans and all of America’s Veterans. Thank you for your service to our great Nation!”
On this Vietnam War Veterans Day, we celebrate the brave Vietnam Veterans and all of America’s Veterans. Thank you for your service to our great Nation!

Donald Trump dodged the draft because of bone spurs in his foot, but he has been unable to say which foot. A few months ago, the daughters of podiatrist Larry Braunstein admitted that the bone spur diagnosis was done as a favor to Fred Trump, from whom he rented office space in Queens.
Reaction on Twitter:
“sex” is your ‘personal Vietnam’….

A draft-dodger celebrating Vietnam war veterans – That’s rich.
Will you be celebrating American tax payers on Tax Day too?

Oh my. I’ve met a lot of vets lately that wonder if you have x-rays of those bone spurs. The don’t ‘go away,’ you know.
It’ll only take 10 minutes or so at Bethesda. Everyone there will let you cut in line…

Thank you for everyone who didn’t dodge the draft five times.

It’s a good thing cadet bone spurs didn’t serve… he would’ve got his unit killed while he hid in bushes.
coward & traitor. #VietnamWarVeteransDay

Thank you for your lack of service and your fraudulent bone spurs. Asshole.
