We the people chose the president . . .

Not really. The people chose Hillary Clinton. The electoral college chose Donald Trump.

You chose the military to serve your country and get military assistance with the G.I. bill.

I’m aware of no evidence of that, and the facts work against your claim. Duckworth chose Army Aviation because it was the only path that allowed women in combat. She chose to not seek educational deferral to her deployment but just deployed.

Yes, she took the chances of military service. The current President attacking her used the power of his wealth to dodge his.

When did “chucky the shoe” do his military time?

If you are referring to Obama, I voted against him twice. However, Obama did not dodge the draft like Trump did.

Regardless, the comparison here is to Trump and Senator Duckworth. She served honorably and at great personal sacrifice. You want to talk about that?
