Truth is stranger than fiction. (Click for video) Monty Python foresaw this in 1971.
Many presidents actively served in wartime and were exposed to bullets, shrapnel, poison gas, or other genuinely dangerous things. George Washington commanded the Army. Abraham Lincoln not only served in the militia during the Black Hawk War, but during the Civil War, while president, he crossed the front line into confederate territory. Presidents Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush all served in wartime. In all, 33 presidents served in the military.
On the other hand, Donald Trump did not, being exempted because of alleged heel spurs. In my opinion, if he had served it might have better prepared him for life.
“Donald Trump worried that “dangerous” fruits could be flung at him by protesters, according to newly-released excerpts from his sworn deposition for an upcoming trial in New York.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/donald-trump-worried-dangerous-fruits-could-be-thrown-at-him-by-protesters-a-new-deposition-reveals/ar-AAWEPFf?cvid=e7b0eaff5d15449b8e681c3ff0237ae9
Thank goodness he wasn’t threatened with a pointed stick.
