The Russians have begun to brazenly go after American soldiers. The MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show aired footage of their attack injuring our sons, daughters, and spouses. It was released by the Russian government. Donald Trump said nothing. In this progression, what is next? Will Russians come to the U.S. and attack Americans on their own soil?
Fortunately, The Lincoln Project has waged its own war on this dangerous man sitting in the Oval Office. The Republicans and former Republican’s latest ad comes down hard on “Cadet Bonespurs” Trump, who said nothing when the Russians began offering a bounty on our soldiers’ heads.
Every day people miss the late war hero Senator John McCain (R-AZ) for his shining patriotism, honor, and commitment to doing the right thing. Trump tried to squash the senator, but instead, McCain held strong. In a fair world, the war hero would haunt Trump in the middle of the night.
The guy with five get-out-of-serving Vietnam cards let another young American die in his place said:
‘He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK?’
The ad responds in a way the Donald hates. It told him “No, Donald:”
‘No, Donald, you’re wrong. They are heroes because they were captured. Thought we forgot?’
The Lincoln Project talked about the sacrifices of our veterans in a collaboration with Veterans for Responsible Leadership. The project wrote:
‘Following the announcement of a Veteran and Military Community Coalition earlier this week, today The Lincoln Project released a new ad, “POW”, spotlighting the horrors American prisoners of war have experienced and recognizing them as the heroes they are.
‘The ad also admonishes Trump for the horrific comments he made about the late Senator John McCain’s military service and experience as a prisoner of war.’
Their ad shows our soldiers throughout history from now until World War II. That was when the Nazis killed their prisoners with a machine gun, abandoning their bloodied bodies to the wildlife.
The Japanese sliced off the heads of our young men. In fact, some of them even cannibalized their “still-warm bodies.”
Senior Advisor for Veteran’s Affairs Fred Wellman said:
‘President Trump dodged serving in Vietnam, who since even before becoming president has degraded war heroes and has allowed Russia to put a bounty on the heads of our brave service men and women. He is a disgrace to the office and unworthy of the title Commander in Chief.

‘We are sending this ad to every Republican Senator and Congressman with a letter asking if they stand with our brave POW’s or Donald Trump. Our soldiers deserve to know who has their backs. It’s not Donald Trump.’
