Full title: Trump’s attacks on Sen. Blumenthal are actually more absurd than Blumenthal’s lies about serving ‘in’ Vietnam


It’s always sad when one privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments attacks another privileged Ivy Leaguer with five Vietnam deferments.

President Trump went after Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., this week with an absurd retelling of how the senator once fabricated stories about serving in Vietnam as a U.S. Marine.

To be clear, Trump isn’t wrong in calling Blumenthal a liar. The senator most absolutely embellished his record years ago, making it sound as if he served in Vietnam. Blumenthal never served overseas the entire time he was a reservist in the Marine Corps.

But the way Trump tells the story of how Blumenthal was outed for misleading voters is just total nonsense.

I wonder how much longer the honeymoon between the Democrats and MSM will last.

Regardless, the “Da Nang Dick” label will stick to the weasel Blumenthal.

As is typical of liberals, in taking Trump literally, the author doesn’t take Trump seriously. Blumenthal DID in fact lie about his war record for years—a SERIOUS issue Trump points out. As far as bullets flying & men dying beside him, that’s all fluff, and all people regard it as.

Main thing is, Blumenthal was a liar about his war record—for years.

In my experience, when a Leftist realizes that they lost an argument about some moral defect in one of their leaders, they’ll end it with the assertion that “everybody does it”.

Uh, did the Trumpster lie about serving in Viet Nam?

Did the Democrat Senator lie about serving in Viet Nam?
Ah, forgot the answer is imbedded . . . “Democrat Senator”.
And yes, some did serve. Even Democrats.
But Blumenthall lied.

Lies, you know, those things that constantly come out of Christine Ford’s little tiny imitation valley girl mouth.

Let me see. Trump got some deferment. Ok, fair enough, but don’t recall him lying about it.

“To be clear, Trump isn’t wrong in calling Blumenthal a liar.”

End of story. No sense in writing anymore.

President Trump only called out “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal because Blumenthal was virtue signaling in the Senate hearing on live television about how people cannot trusting people who lie while he himself is a liar and a thief of valor that he did not earn.

President Trump is focusing on just a few of these leftist hypocrites at a time so that he can effectively label them for life. “Da Nang Dick” has been branded and shamed.
