As certain members of the media relentlessly bang the war drum with North Korea, some conservative pundits are also… simultaneously bashing the young men who would serve if a global conflagration ever erupted.
First, it was Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, who wanted you to know that men today are only qualified to play videos games (which, you know, is now part of how the military trains people these days). Now, it’s conservativefirebrandTomi Lahrentelling the world that MEN. TODAY. ARE. WEAK.
As I watch millennial men struggle to lift their bags into the overhead bin I am reminded how f'd we are if there's a draft.

First off, it is awkward to lift a heavy carry-on in a confined space and no one can really do it with grace, but ignoringALL THAT, let’s blow her mind: The military trains people after they draft them. And it’s based on the inherent principle that the people joining the military are not qualified to go to war at the time they join the military.
It’s called basic training. Literally, basic.
I mean, does Lahren really think that dudes in the late 1930s were somehow more war-qualified than men today? Here’s a picture of some dweeb from back then.

Those dudes were afraid of planes. The devil’s sky car, they called them. But the military trained them to fight Nazis, much like the military trains everybody who comes into the military. That’s how it works.
Of course,Twitterquickly jumped all over this unfathomably incorrect sentiment.
what a weird way to advertise that you're thirsty for grandpas https://t.co/kotGpPFuvL

This is so dumb. It takes little to no physical strength to properly weatherstrip a door. https://t.co/X4wvxZI1EI

It's a good thing you can rely on your parents to lift your bags until you're 26. https://t.co/XA6IzQlqRW

Interesting how the "support our troops" crowd always forgets that Millennials have fought the longest war in American history – Afghanistan https://t.co/8cIjiHyVcH

Selective Services IS technically the draft. Which all men have to do at the age of 18. But you wouldn't know anything about that would ya? https://t.co/V9RSYrrwn4

Either way,Lahren was just joking.But also not joking? Who knows.
First of all, take a joke. Second, you're right and those who have joined the military voluntarily would not be drafted. Eric meet my point. https://t.co/to7Rdr4QOB

If we had a draft, here’s thinking we would be fine (minus how screwed we’d be because, you know, world war and all).
