      It appears that Donald Trump did what he legitimately could to avoid the draft when he was young, during the time of the Viet Nam war. Members of the media and other pundits are calling Mr. Trump all kinds of names. Such comments are emblematic of the bias and hypocrisy of those baby-boomer types.

I recall another very well-known American who did all he could to avoid the draft. In fact, he evaded the draft by going abroad to "study" and he was vehement and public about his personal opposition to the war itself. He, however, is and was not held to the standards against which Trump is measured. Why?

Simple really. Bill Clinton is a Democrat. And he is married to a Democrat. And Trump's draft-dodging critics are Democrat Party operatives with by-lines. Once you understand that, it is easy to see through them and their narratives.
