Donald J. Trump, whose armed combat experience consists of being shipped off to military school when his father couldn’t stand him anymore, has offered advice to America’s generals that’s as valuable as his hair advice to Fabio.

“We have to really increase the bombings,” the zero-star commander told Fox & Friends — the finest military strategy show to star Elisabeth Hasselbeck — arguing that explosions in Syria will convince Afghan-Americans in central Florida to embrace LGBT rights.

Trump’s directives were received with an eye-roll from top generals, who, for some reason, seem wary of taking military advice from a man whose main foreign policy goal is replacing state dinners with McDonald’s.
