Donald Trump, Sports Hero

I didn't realize Trump was such an acclaimed athlete.

He was a skilled first basemen for the baseball team at the New York Military Academy in the early 1960s and also competed in basketball, football, soccer, bowling and wrestling. 

It must have been so difficult with bone spurs in one or both feet. Whichever. 

Trump, a Republican presidential candidate, and his campaign have said that he received the medical deferment because he had bone spurs in his feet. But rather than clear up all questions about why he did not serve in the military during the Vietnam era, they have given shifting accounts that are at odds with the few remaining documents in his Selective Service file.

Yeah, it's an oldie, but I like the classics. That and winners who avoid the draft.
