Democratic presidential candidate and Afghanistan War veteran Pete Buttigieg went after President Trump’s avoidance of military service, accusing him of faking a disability to dodge going to Vietnam.

Buttigieg, who also compared Trump to a “crazy uncle,” tiptoed around criticism of primary rival Joe Biden, who also avoided the Vietnam draft.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I have a pretty dim view of his decision to use his privileged status to fake a disability in order to avoid serving in Vietnam,” the South Bend, Ind. mayor said, in a Washington Post interview Thursday.

In 1968, Trump received a diagnosis of bone spurs in the heels, which prevented him from serving in the military. The daughters of the now-deceased podiatrist who gave that diagnosis said in December that diagnosis was a favor to Trump’s father, Fred Trump.
