CNN concisely sumarising a New York Times report:

CNN: Daughters of foot doctor say he diagnosed Trump with bone spurs as 'favor' to Fred Trump.

The daughters of a Queens foot doctor say their late father diagnosed President Donald Trump with bone spurs to help him avoid the Vietnam War draft as a "favor" to his father Fred Trump, according to a new report Wednesday.

Dr. Larry Braunstein, a podiatrist who died in 2007, often told the story of providing Donald Trump with the diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels so he could be exempt from military service, his two daughters -- Dr. Elysa Braunstein and Sharon Kessel -- told the New York Times.

I see he is ok calling the wall something else. That's a pretty low value concession. Running out of ideas. He will struggle to cope with putting up the Open For Business sign if he cannot get any wall money.


Lock him up!

It's all right if he does it because he has the biggest and bestest smarts there is and covfefe will protect them all.

This is beyond crazy. He tells the military, in person, that they haven't had a pay rise in 10 years. They have actually had one every year. he is saying they will get 10%.

This stunning portrait was gifted to Trump at Christmas by the neo-Nazi 'Rise Above' Movement, but while obviously pleased, he sent it back with a polite request to first 'make the hair bigger and add some more medals'.
