Twitter Shreds ‘Draft-Dodger’ Trump For Saluting George H.W. Bush’s Casket

President Donald Trump made a brief visit to the Capitol Rotunda on Monday evening where the body of former President George H.W. Bush lies in state.

Though Trump initially looked uncomfortable, he stood next to First Lady Melania Trump and raised his right hand to salute the late president Bush, who served honorably as a Navy fighter pilot in World War II. Trump, on the other hand, avoided service in Vietnam by getting five medical deferments due to “bone spurs” in his feet.

Within minutes of Trump’s salute, Twitter erupted with anger and contempt for Trump. Many of those who commented mentioned that the current president had dodged serving his country and didn’t have the right to salute anyone, especially a war hero like Bush:
