Today President Trump awarded the nation’s highest recognition to Captain Gary Rose for what he did in Laos, Southeast Asia almost 50 years ago during the Vietnam War. Trump gave Capt. Rose the Medal of Honor, and proud family and members of the military community looked on as Rose entered the ranks of a select few of the bravest this nation has ever produced. As USA Newsflash reports, however, left-leaning people took great offense at Trump fulfilling his presidential duties and handing out the honor.
The reason Rose got the Medal of Honor is that he was stranded for four days in the jungles of Laos in 1970 and helped wounded Americans survive despite his foot being mangled by an attack. Rose, an army medic, saved many servicemen from death under great pain and cost to himself. The mission was still mostly secret until 1998 when CNN (of course) claimed Rose had done something bad. The Pentagon investigated and found that CNN was fake news. Rose deserves everyone’s sincere thanks.
Liberals, however, were outraged at Trump presenting the award. They were disgusted at President Trump. Just recently Senator John McCain called Trump a draft dodger and said he only got out of serving in the Vietnam War because he was rich and found a doctor to lie about him having a bone spur.

“For many years the story of Mike’s heroism had gone untold,” Trump said, “but today we gather to tell the world of his valor and present him with the highest military honor our country has to offer.”
This is the second Medal of Honor Trump has awarded in his nine months so far in office, but that was too much for liberals, who absolutely freaked out, calling Trump a stupid “idiot,” weakling, draft dodger and hypocrite.
That idiot doesn't know the difference between a "Congressional Medal of Honor" and a military "Medal of Honor".

Disgusting! Donald Trump knows NOTHING of honor, bravery, selflessness, fearlessness & morality. Donald Trump should NOT touch that medal.

I was waiting for Trump to look at the Press and yell “I got myself one too” as he put on his own Medal of Honor.

As you can see, instead of focusing for a moment on the brave man receiving recognition, these libtards went after President Trump and made this about politics. There’s another thing about this, too. Aren’t liberals opposed to war? If so then why do they place so much value in military awards ceremonies and whether Trump is a good symbol of military patriotism? They’re being hypocrites like usual: pretending to respect our troops in order to trash-talk Trump.
What do you think about this story? Do you think Trump really is a cowardly draft dodger? Why do liberals keep trying to divide our country?
