Donald Trump’s lies have become so multitudinous that I’ve not been able to keep up lately.
But I have to address this particular lie, which the Trumpster repeated yet again today.
Donald Trump said a few days ago and then again this morning on Fox News that “so many parents” of Korean War vets asked him on the campaign trail in 2016 to please help bring home the remains of their sons.
Trump repeats the claim that he had “so many parents” of Korean War vets ask him during the campaign to help return the remains of Americans who died there. The average age of parents then would have been between 102 and 111. (via FOX) pic.twitter.com/VtEOzJVDU9

To be clear – the Korean War ended in 1953.
My own father served in the Korean War. He died in 2008 at the age of 91.
His father was born in 1892 and died in 1979. He would be 126 years old today.
My father’s mother was born in 1898 and died in 1964. She would be 120 years old.
Now, can you imagine tons of folks in their 120s traipsing to Trump campaign rallies and stopping him to ask to bring home their sons’ remains?
