    10,000 veterans expected but only 4,000 showed up according to reports, what does that tell you?: I’m not sure why a treacherous, cowardly, yellow draft dodger like Mr. Trump who avoided serving our country would expect our brave military veterans, courageous men and women who he disrespects and disparages every chance he gets, to show up for one of his pathetic, bizarre dismantle the USA clown show hate speeches but he held the event in Missouri on July 24, 2018 anyway: Press reports indicate the venue had to be downsized to a smaller space and he still failed to fill it with empty seats everywhere: Trump insanely disrespects our military heroes, sympathizes with our arch enemies including white nationalists / Nazis who these very same veterans fought to eradicate in the 1940’s, do you believe veterans have finally had enough of Mr. Trump and why on Earth would he expect them to show up for one of his pathetic bash the USA disgraces?

      How could anyone possibly be surprised that our brave veterans of foreign wars just like patriotic women of the USA, are dumping Trump the Clown by the droves? Downsized venues appear to be the new norm for a traitor who actually said 'he likes people who weren't captured' and makes a jackass out of himself by insulting one our greatest war time veterans of all time, Senator John McCain: Despicable and Unacceptable:

      Astonishing FACTS from the Kansas City Star:

      "Trump was expected to speak at Municipal Auditorium at the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ national convention, which is expected to draw about 10,000 VFW and VFW Auxiliary delegates. The speech was initially planned for the Kansas City Convention Center but later moved to the auditorium.":

      Only 4,000 showed up, 60% LESS than anticipated:

        One should not be surprised.  There is a tremendous amount of hate speech denigrating our president out there and veterans are no less gullible than other people.  Some of them will believe the garbage being said without ever checking the source or the actual facts.  Some believe simply because nasty adjectives are thrown about as if they were true!  Why, some even believe because others, failing to produce anything of real value, resort to name calling to make their "point".  (Hard to believe, but even harder to believe is that some actually think those loaded words,  gross exaggerations and childish name calling make their statement more believable somehow!)

          Normal, emotionally sound Americans and global citizens have every right to HATE Bozo Trump and they should: He's nothing but a sick, sinister dark elderly man who is trying desperately to destroy our NATO alliance which keeps this country safe, sabotage our healthcare system to the point where our children will not have access to comprehensive medical care unlike his lovely little grand daughter Melania was afforded when she was iLL recently, and he's an idiot who is intentionally undermining our law enforcement agencies for God knows what reason while Vladimir Putin smirks:

          Those are just a few reasons of many Americans must hate Mr. Trump and take action at the election booth against Mr. Trump and his Russian controlled republican congress-persons::

              I'm happy veterans are finally beginning to see Bozo for what he truly is:

              It's a normal reaction for a healthy individual including our veterans to hate a dark person like Mr. Trump who gave trillions away to Wall Street elitists with the help of his Russian republican congress-persons and insulted a war hero like John McCain while at the same time he's desperately trying to take away children's health insurance which provides them with essential health care:

              Americans MUST hate a dark force like this if they are to ultimately prevail over evil and salvage whats left of the USA::

                Jake , If you don't already you should get a job with the news media oh ,perhaps CNN, they would love your style of writing , your sense of honesty and your reflection of what's really going on in the world today .
                I'd be willing to bet they would pay dearly for your  opinions .

                Always sad, isn't it, when otherwise healthy people descend into the black pit of hatred to the point that their whole life revolves around spreading that dark and unhealthy emotion to everyone they can.  Emotionally healthy people do not allow those kinds of negative feelings to control them and they certainly do not encourage others to join them in the descent; they don't even allow them to exist let alone try to spread them to others.

                There IS help available, you know, beginning with a strong effort and reliance on your own personal ability to reason and be honest with yourself.  If the hatred hasn't already destroyed those things already, anyway.

                  I'm really not sure which universe some Trump fans reside in but here on planet Earth, the people of United States are engaged in an epic battle to defeat evil which was embedded in our oval office by a foreign adversary:

                  An evil named Trump which has convinced a tiny minority of gullible voters that when he takes away their health insurance leaving their children WITHOUT comprehensive medical attention that atrocious act is somehow a good thing, if he destroys our NATO alliance leaving us even less safe, that would also somehow be a good thing, when he acts like a mentally unhinged jackass and insults brave war heroes like John McCain that is also a good thing and giving trillions to Wall Street elitists is also a good thing:

                  Thank God our courageous veterans are finally seeing right through Bozo Trump's facade:

                    Neither you nor anyone else will see "right through" anything at all until you can set aside your emotional disturbance, your intense hatred, and use your reason instead.  Only when that has been accomplished will truth be seen; until then all that you and others like you can see is your own black hatred.  Including the veterans that have closed their eyes and ears to the world outside of their hate.

                    Work on it; I'm sure that with enough effort you can be successful.  If you care to, anyway - frankly you don't seem to care about anything but your own hatred at this point in your journey through life.

      Hmmm So there was a change of venue and fewer people came so that means you celebrate and think people think more like you?

      Did you say anything about the rallies where they ran over capacity? Naaaa.

      What a pathetic rant. For hate speech, look deep inside.

      Another reason why our brave military veterans are dumping Trump by the droves just like independents and women, how could any genuine patriotic American stand for or with this blatant act of betrayal against the USA?

      Vladimir Putin must be ecstatic every time he watches his little stooge say this:

      PP: The Trump cultees have no facts so they resort to personal attacks: Way too many valid, legitimate reasons for the overwhelming majority to HATE Trump, if an individual doesn't hate him by now, it's probably time for that person to seriously consider a comprehensive psychological evaluation to try and determine why he or she still supports a malicious orange clown who is doing everything he can to take away everything they have, committing atrocious crimes against humanity and crimes against our constitution along the way: UNREAL::

      On the positive side, I'm reassured to see the forces of GOOD have demonstrably out numbered Bozo Trump's pals with their tiny 'unite the right' or should we say the 'unite the nazis' hate rally in DC: The righteous forces of the resistance rules:

              Castlepaloma, unfortunately in an effort to preserve our very survival in our darkest of times, it's impossible to ignore a megalomaniac like Trump who exhibits all traits of a Russian agent, a self absorbed racist lunatic who is sabotaging NATO which is segregating our once unified power, undermining our healthcare system so our children find it difficult to get the medical care they need, he's atrociously caging innocent children which is permanently damaging their susceptible psychological well being and of course forcing our once great economy into regression with his insane tax hikes:

              It's perfectly fine to dislike and obstruct an incompetent evil doing fool like him which is exactly what the vast majority of Americans are doing with great success so far:

          There is no comparison between a mentally sick and evil individual like Donald Trump who was illegally assisted with his campaign by our arch enemy Vladimir Putin, one of the many crimes currently under investigation, and ALL other legitimate presidents: Everyone knows that it's false to claim any comparisons:

          Veterans are dumping Trump in droves, just like women are dumping him and just about every other group of Americans are appalled with his madness: Apparently, you can't attack a family of a war veteran who gave his life for America, or attack a genuine American hero like John McCain and expect the rest of the veteran population to support you, it just doesn't work that way and yes, I'd assume many veterans hate Donald Trump and that's a perfectly normal reaction:

              It's impossible to ignore a malicious individual like Donald when he's trying to steal everything you've worked for, or sabotaging your children's healthcare, or unilaterally tearing up regulations that once protected the planet and our health, or committing treason by betraying our nation on national television as he did just weeks ago in Helsinki:

              If you're not obstructing Bozo Trump's crazy Russian approved agenda, an agenda which obviously includes degrading great American heroes like John McCain and our law enforcement, and if you fail to speak out against his atrocious actions which are systematically destroying this once great country, by default, you're enabling him

              Castlepaloma: Today, believe it or not, in what appears to be another alarming blatant act of self absorbed insanity with ZERO regard for the American people, Bozo Trump just made the USA significantly more UNSAFE by revoking the security clearance of a great patriot of our law enforcement, Intelligence Chief John Brennon who was working covertly for decades to keep this country safe from the likes of Russian spies while Bozo Trump was probably plotting his Trump University scam, snickering about evading the military draft because his feet hurt and experimenting with propecia:

    Military Leaders Unite Against Donald Trump calling him out for his blatant lies, baseless assertions, and unprecedented incompetence: If we didn't believe he'll soon be imprisoned for his crimes if we still have laws, we'd have to ask the following question "How profound of a venue downsizing will need to occur the next time Mr. Trump tries to visit our great veterans of foreign wars with his anti-American hate filled circus clown show?" 

    "Architect of bin Laden raid issues stunning rebuke of Trump"

    "Washington (CNN)Retired Adm. William McRaven, the man who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden, issued a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump's decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan on Thursday, defending the former spy chief as "one of the finest public servants I have ever known."

    "Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don't know him,"

    "Therefore, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency,"

    "Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,"

    "If you think for a moment that your McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until you become the leader we prayed you would be," he added."
