On PTSD, brain expert Trump backed by most-trusted adviser

Donald Trump, perhaps to erase all memory of last's week's bad tax and Miss Universe FUBARs, dissed military vets with PTSD by suggesting during a discussion service personnel suicide that some simply weren't strong.
"When people come back from war and combat, they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you're strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can't handle it," Trump said to a veterans group in Northern Virginia.
Kind of a variation on his diminution of POW John McCain and his battering of the Gold Star Khan family.

This makes more sense in TrumpWorld, however when you remember that Trump is an expert on matters of the brain - - because he has "a very good brain."

From which he gets great advice:
"But I speak to a lot of people, but my primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this stuff,” he added.
And has led to his being hailed as a "genius" - - more cerebral focusing - - by another equally-qualified expert.

Consider that loopy loop closed.

Editor's note: this post replaces something similar that simply disappeared.

I wonder if Trumps knowledge is from his military experience or maybe he contracted PTSD from worrying if his draft deferments would expire
