Well, if John Fogerty says so ....
Don’t know why celebs think their views and thoughts carry more weight than the avg Joe
The current President parlayed his celebrity status into the office. Do you want celebrities to keep quiet or is it only the celebrities who say things you don't agree with?
Take out the celebrity part, how about veteran?

Veteran status only matters if they are a republican.
The day Fogerty received his draft notice he went to the Army Reserve Recruiter. The recruiter backdated his paperwork and after spending 6 months training as a supply clerk Fogerty spent his time in the service as a part-time reservist.

I’m not knocking him for his service or getting out of serving in Vietnam but his comments sound a little high and mighty.

I was thinking more about current congressmen. Dan Crenshaw is a republican God because he served and talks about it alot and got a cool injury. I have nothing but respect for him but you gotta admit based on recent political ads that's part of his schtick.

In my district 2 years ago you had an iraq combat veteran versus someone who spent the last decade as a Washington lobbyist. The lobbyist won and I'll give you one guess of his party. It's a rematch this year and the challenger has shown more pictures of him in uniform in ads. We'll see how that g

Republicans support the troops but

He spent more time in service than Trump. He probably legitimately knew guys in basic who didn't make it back and that may have been a sticking point with him.

Your president of the United States of America, ladies and gentlemen. Bravo. Just.. bravo. What a damned knuckle-dragging buffoon. Tho I harbor far more left-leaning ideologies, I really wish Biden was not the presidential nominee to represent the Dem party. But somebody - anybody - is a much better option than the 'Clown Show' of Trump's disastrous tenure as president. You have to be a fool to think Trump isn't the worst god damned president of all-time.

"President Trump is doubling down on his decision to retweet an unfounded QAnon conspiracy theory that Osama bin Laden is still alive, a move that threatens to alienate members of the military with the election less than three weeks away"

They are lost on Q conspiracies they hope make the mainstream 3 weeks before a historically bad president gets his comeuppance. This won't do much to dissuade the peanut gallery

So did my father...who received his draft notice and went to the recruiter and enlisted as regular and ended up stationed in Germany and an uncle who did multiple tours in Vietnam, neither of which has an issue with Trump. Supporting the troops is separate from voting for somebody with different political goals.

Joe Rogan recently did 2.5 hours with Wesley Hunt, running in Texas’ 7th Congressional District. Hunt was recruited to run by Crenshaw. Interesting conversation with Rogan and worth a listen. His (Hunt’s) hope is that the vets, regardless of party, can come together for common sense leadership on issues.

Remember when Donald Trump challenged the Vietnam War service credentials of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
"He’s a war hero because he was captured," Trump said "I like people who weren’t captured."

We are one step away from full communist/socialist takeover. They have complete control over MSM and are attempting now to control what information people can see. Protecting a candidate for president by stopping people from seeing his disgusting criminal activity.

Ok, let’s talk about the 25 women accusing the candidate of sexual assault.

My Dad's a veteran and thinks we are in a world of hurt if we choose Biden...he's got two distinguished flying crosses...but go ahead and take John Forgery's word because...he signs music and agree with you.
