Bottom line: Don't talk ill of the dead. And as our "Commander in Chief", it's his JOB to support the armed forces and our veterans. Bitch about it all you want, but it's in his job title.

His support among veterans has plummeted as of late.

I looked at a news site and that wasn't the case so Cornyn actually wasn't the top story.

Non-issue. The dead don't give a ****, no reason for us to.

It wasn't the case that he was a top story on the site you looked at.

And I don't even know who Cornyn is.

So Donald Trump should console them?

If something bad happened in my life, I'd prefer him to stay out of it.
