Was Lt. Col. Dorfman a bit taken aback when his hero's first response upon taking his medal was to look it over and ask, "Is that like, the real one or is that a copy?"
- When Lt. Col. Dorfman assured Trump, telling him, "That's my real Purple Heart. I have such confidence in you", did the retired officer perhaps expect a more eloquent reply than, "Man, that's like, that's like, big stuff" before Trump pocketed the medal then walked out on stage?
When Donald Trump called him out to the stage before the cheering audience, did Lt. Col. Dorfman, leaning on his cane, wish ever so slightly that his hero might have put his arm around him instead of he having to be the one to put his arm around his hero, who then posed for a photo op with his medal in one hand and giving a thumbs-up with the other?
It's a better than gold bet that Lt. Col. Dorfman will receive what he asked for.
