Trump’s ‘Bone Spurs’ Are A Lie: Daughter Of Podiatrist Who Helped Trump Dodge Vietnam Draft

The daughters of the late Dr. Larry Braunstein, a podiatrist, told the New York Times that their father helped President Donald Trump dodger the Vietnam draft by falsely claiming Trump had bone spurs on his feet.

Dr. Elysa Braunstein reportedly said her late father implied that Trump did not suffer from a debilitating foot ailment, but made the fake diagnosis as a favor to Trum’s dad Fred Trump (which was corroborated by her sister, Sharon Kessel):

I know it was a favor. What he got was access to Fred Trump. If there was anything wrong in the building, my dad would call and Trump would take care of it immediately. That was the small favor that he got.

The daughters said their father “often mentioned” Dr. Manny Weinstein, a podiatrist who passed away in 1995, when discussing the Trump deferment scam.
