Trump just called Democrats “treasonous.” War hero Senator Tammy Duckworth’s comeback is epic

While relitigating the adulation from his State of the Union speech, Trump complained that Democrats who didn’t stand and applaud during his speech were “treasonous.”

“Can we call that treason? Why not?” Trump said. “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.”

Tammy Duckworth, a military veteran who lost both legs in a helicopter accident in Iraq in 2004, struck back at Trump for thinking he has any grounds to determine what is “treasonous” or not, given his dismal track record serving this country.

Duckworth’s tweet comes on the heels of an even more fiery speech on the Senate floor where she criticized Trump’s tepid excuse for his lack of military service. The President sought five deferments from the Vietnam draft for bone spurs that conveniently disappeared shortly thereafter.

“I spent my entire adult life looking out for the wellbeing, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible,” Duckworth said. “Sadly, this is something the current occupant of the Oval Office does not seem to care to do.”

“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.”

If our coward of a President is going to castigate Democrats for failing to coddle his authoritarian yearnings, he better be prepared to endure the wrath of a real American hero—one who actually sacrificed for this country.
