Veterans Respond To Trump’s Monday Attack On Marine Senator’s Service To Country


Donald Trump must not have much to do. After an all-out early morning Twitter attack, he still found time to respond to people who disagreed with his tweets. The man who is not in the Oval Office today jumped on Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal for talking about Russia. The words Trump used against the senator hit some veterans especially hard.

To avoid Vietnam, Trump obtained four educational deferments. Then, he took a fifth one due to what he said was bone spurs, but he cannot recall which foot. One would think that if a bone spur was so terribly bad Trump had to stay out of the war, he would have been unable to play sports in college, but he did. The spurs must have appeared suddenly after graduation.

The Donald started off the morning calling the Connecticut senator a “phony Vietnam con artist.”

‘Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!’

Trump does not have a good record with veterans. After all, he said Republican Senator John McCain was no war hero, because he was captured. It seems the president believes people captured in the line of duty are losers. During the campaign, the candidate attacked a couple who lost their son to battle in Iraq. Then, Trump scored a purple heart from a man at his rally who earned it the hard way.

In another of his tweets, Trump called Blumenthal a liar and defrauder, but was he projecting:

‘Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal. He told stories about his Vietnam battles and…’

Then, Trump came in with all that he had, saying Blumenthal “cried like a baby.” The senator did not cry like a baby, and who did not stop calling people “a baby” after first grade? The president claimed Blumenthal “begged for forgiveness,” which is something Trump never does -never:

‘…conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child. Now he judges collusion?’

Trump felt he had military experience, because his parents shipped him off to military school. The veterans could not take the president’s hypocrisy any longer and fired back, hitting home:
