Democrat Sen. Tammy Duckworth took to the Senate floor recently to blast President Donald Trump, whom she referred to as a ‘draft dodger.’
Check this out…
From The Hill:
Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) tore into President Trump on the Senate floor Saturday, calling him a “five-deferment draft dodger” and slamming him for his comments toward North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“Does he even know that there are service members who are in harm’s way right now, watching him, looking for their commander in chief to show leadership, rather than [trying] to deflect blame?” Duckworth said. “Or that his own Pentagon says that the short-term funding plans he seems intent on pushing is actually harmful to not just the military, but to our national security?”
“I spent my entire adult life looking out for the well-being, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible,” she continued. “Sadly, this is something that the current occupant of the Oval Office does not seem to care to do — and I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”
“And I have a message for cadet bone spurs: If you cared about our military, you’d stop baiting Kim Jong Un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops, and millions of innocent civilians, in danger.”
New York Daily News has more:
The “Cadet Bone Spurs” remark was a reference to Trump’s medical condition he used to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War.
Duckworth’s comments come after the Senate failed to pass a short-term spending bill by midnight Friday to keep the federal government open.
Enough with the nonsense, Tammy.
Americans are concerned with real issues of the day.
Why not tell the public that the stock market is booming and ISIS is on the run? Oh, right, that wouldn’t be good for the Democrat Party in 2020.
