Well Mr. Bonespurs avoids the draft.

"Trump haters can laugh all they want at Trump’s “bone spurs,” the reason behind his 1-Y classification, but snickers and cheap shots don’t contradict a bone spur diagnosis. It’s not like Trump was out running marathons at the time.

But there was Slow Joe playing football in high school, playing even more sports in college, and qualifying as a lifeguard, all while claiming to suffer the debilitating asthma that meant someone else would have to take his place in Vietnam."

trump is still corrupt as aitch-e-double-toothpicks and never did anything altruistic in his life. Oh, and he's a lowlife too.

Trump played sports in high school.

Trump’s declarations of his baseball stardom can be traced back to
2004. In Brian Kilmeade’s collection "The Games Do Count: America’s Best
and Brightest on the Power of Sports," Trump contributed a
chapter describing the connection between his experience playing high
school baseball and his success in the business world.

“I was supposed to be a pro baseball player,” Trump wrote. “At
the New York Military Academy, I was captain of the baseball team. I
worked hard like everyone else, but I had good talent.”

Interestingly, in the same chapter, Trump added, “People asked me
if I worked hard in sports. I didn’t. I loved it too much to call it
work.” Then, explaining why he left baseball behind, he wrote, “I never
played baseball after that because there was just no future in it for
me. I would have had to have done it just for the love of the game, and
that just wasn’t for me.”

At age 22, he had already received four deferments to complete his college degree. He passed his military physical but two years later, he was diagnosed with bone spurs and received his fifth deferment.

The doctor who helped him get his deferment claimed he did it as a favor to Fred Trump, his landlord, according to the doctor's daughters.

BTW, that's not "Mr. Bonespurs" when referring to Trump. It's Confederate Cadet Bonespurs.

So...Joe had childhood asthma, recovered enough to play some pretty intense sports, then relapsed just in time for avoiding the draft. Got it!

Biden attended the Archmere Academy in Claymont,[9]:27, 32 where he was a standout halfback and wide receiver on the high school football team; he helped lead a perennially losing team to an undefeated season in his senior year.[18][21] He played on the baseball team as well.[18] Academically, he was a poor student...Biden played halfback for the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens freshman football team, and defensive back for the varsity team.[21][21][24

Asthma leaves scars on the lungs and depending on how much damage there was you can indeed end up with a military deferment even though you seem fine. Even when you are not looking for a deferment. I know some one who.....

Not so quick there. My oldest brother received a legitimate deferment during Vietnam due to having one leg 1/4 inch shorter than the other- due to a broken femur as a teenager. As the war progressed, no such deferments were available. It became known as the 'poor man's war' to fight. I'm inclined to agree that Biden's deferment is real, dt's not at all. dt couldn't remember the foot; the daughters of the doctor who 'diagnosed' the bone spurs gave the true story to the press.

ETA: my brother wasn't particularly looking for one at the time. He didn't ask for the deferment.

The one positive of the Trump presidency is that any transgression by the next dem president will pale in comparison to Trump. Divorces, affairs, draft-dodging, thousands of lies, bankruptcies, weeks on the golf course, misusing charity money, mocking veterans and disabled, punching down on twitter, etc. Trump is a treasure trove of whataboutism fodder.

A bought and paid for diagnosis does not equal actually having bone spurs. *snicker*

Trump is President until January 20, 2021, win or lose November 3.

Or however long Democrats plan to drag out the election.

The attempts to undermine Joe Biden are laughable, since almost every one of them is a faint echo of something Mr. Trump has done, and others are outright falsity.
