Speaking of outrages

I'm also supposed to angry about this image:

Bad person
Apparently, because Le Grand Orange visited a ship yesterday and wore the hat and jacket they gave him, he's "cosplaying" a military man, especially since Trump didn't serve in Vietnam. No other president who did not serve in the military would have ever done such a thing, wearing a hat that honors a military vessel:

Never happened

I kinda like this one: https://www.google.com/search?q=dukakis+in+a+tank&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjN-8LnmbvSAhXD6IMKHY0XA90Q_AUICCgB&biw=1396&bih=679#imgrc=Bg81-2ki42K4tM:

I had a friend in college--liberal to the point of being socialist--who had a visceral response to that picture of Dukakis. If you said "Dukakis in a tank" to him, the response was as if you said "ground ball to Buckner" to a Red Sox fan, or "Jordan punches Laimbeer" to a Bulls fan. It was impressive. He knew very well that picture had a lot to do with Dukakis' loss.

Obama also once wore a flight jacket despite never serving. Yeah, you might infer that people get worked up about this only when it's a Republican. I guess we have to deal with it.
