There is one event Trump will NOT tweet about: Young soldier from Puerto Rico killed in Afghanistan

Trump has been on a Twitter rampage this weekend.  Among the topics he is enraged about are:

  • Elizabeth Warren;
  • a five-day-old video clip that he claims backs up his claim about Hurricane Dorian threatening Alabama
  • cannibalism
  • inviting the Taliban to Camp David
  • the border
  • James Comey, and
  • a cat chasing a laser pointer.

One thing he will not tweet about:  Honoring the life and death of a Puerto Rican native, Sgt. 1st Class Elis Angel Barreto Ortiz,  who gave his life protecting our nation in Afghanistan on Thursday.

American Military News

“The Pentagon identified the U.S. service member killed in Afghanistan on Thursday as a U.S. Army paratrooper.

Sgt. 1st Class Elis Angel Barreto Ortiz of Morovis, Puerto Rico, was killed in Kabul, Afghanistan on Sept. 5 as a result of a “vehicle borne improvised explosive device,” 82nd Airborne Division spokesman Lt. Col Mike Burns confirmed in an email to American Military News.

Barreto was a Maintenance Control Sergeant with Company H, 82nd Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. He had enlisted in the Army in 2010 and graduated from Airborne School in 2017.

His awards and decorations include the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Good Conduct Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Combat Action Badge, the Basic Parachutist Badge, the Army Driver and Mechanic Badge,” the press release noted.

Barreto is survived by a wife and children.”


Of course, he also has lots of time for golf.  The fact that 40% of our nation supports this evil fool tells us that, yes, there are lots of stupid people out there.
