Did you know that Donald Trump is a military genius? Neither did we, but that didn't stop him from trashing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl or the hostage deal that set him free from captivity.

Did you know that Donald Trump is a military genius? I didn't know he specializes in assault tactics and hostage negotiations, so when he disapproved of the trade America made to free our only U.S. hostage, Fox News had better bring you the news. See, since he knows how to make a deal for golf courses and real estate, he must be just as prescient when it comes to hostage situations, no? The Donald does his best Charles Barkley impersonation while talking to Fox and Friends this morning.

Trump: This is a terrible deal we made by the way, it's a terrible deal. Every soldier and every American is at risk right now. That was a terrible deal.

Hasselbeck: You understand the art of negotiations. Susan Rice still saying 'we didn't negotiation with the Taliban here and the terrorists," but in fact would you say we lost this negotiation?

Trump: This isn't even close and this is a terrible precedent. I mean what we're doing is terrible. So now we have the soldier that's going to be looked in to and I think that's going to be turning out to be a disaster and the father with the tweets...I don't know if you saw the father's tweets, but they were really like...anti-American.

Hasselbeck: Yes, yes

Trump: But I think it's going to turn out to be one catastrophe, when was the last time you heard something positive about the United States....

Thanks for that brilliant insight Donald. How many times did he file for bankruptcy by the way? Donald Trump's Companies Filed for Bankruptcy 4 Times.

Can you help us out?
