    Tammy Duckworth labels Trump a coward

    Senator Tammy Duckworth Says Trump Has A ‘Yellow Streak Down His Back’

    The military veteran called out the president for what he said to Piers Morgan about not serving in the Vietnam War.


    "Bone-spurs" didn't prevent Trump from playing sports in his school at draft age. The baseball and basketball teams.

    6/6/19
    A senator who lost both her legs while serving in the military during the Iraq War isn’t impressed by the comments of a president who skipped out of an earlier war because of bone spurs. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump told “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan that he “would not have minded serving” in the Vietnam War. At the time, however, he managed to avoid the draft when a podiatrist diagnosed him with bone spurs that he may not actually have had. (The podiatrist’s daughters recently suggested that it was all a favor to their dad’s landlord, who happened to be Trump’s father.) Trump’s remarks inspired the ire of Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who had both legs amputated due to injuries suffered in Iraq in 2004. First, she called out the president for avoiding military service to his country.....

    #CadetBoneSpurs: no one cares whether you were a “fan” of the Vietnam War. No one
    believes you were medically unfit to serve. You used your wealth & privilege to avoid
    serving your country five times, forcing another American to serve in your place each time.
    11:53 AM - 5 Jun 2019

    Then she went after Trump for taking money away from current military members and their families in order to pay for his pet projects.....

    @SenDuckworth
    Now, you're stealing billions from @DeptofDefense's budget to fund a wall you promised Mexico
    would pay for. You're failing to support military families by taking away caregiver funding. You're
    kicking out Americans who *are* willing to serve only because they're transgender.
    2:26 PM - Jun 5, 2019

    Then for all intents and purposes, she called the president a coward ― though not in those exact words.....

    @SenDuckworth
    These comments only make one thing clear: @realDonaldTrump got his deferments for the wrong thing.
    They shouldn't have been for his disappearing, imaginary bone spurs—they should have been for that
    yellow streak down his back. At least that would have been a real condition.
    2:26 PM - Jun 5, 2019

    So far, Trump hasn’t responded ― but it’s just a matter of when, right?
    Ouch. That left a mark and rightfully so. I agree with Lieutenant Colonel/Senator Duckworth 110%. Trump is a total poltroon who purchased his personal safety at the expense of others.

    Everybody already knows Trump is a coward.
    People have been saying that for years.
    Years.
    I may be wrong.

    Let's not forget Donald Trump also does not like Vietnam vets who were captured. That pampered coward wouldn't have lasted a day in a POW camp.

I guess tRump privilege and cowardice is so well known that it has become something to yawn about.

    Certainly you're not yawning at a United States Senator who's has and still is serving her country with honor; She retired as Lieutenant Colonel and the recipient of the Purple Hart (wounded in action), Air Medal (single acts of heroism) and Army Commendation Medal (Sustained Act of Heroism). You certainly would not disgrace yourself by yawning at such a woman of valor and patriot especially while attempting to support the lowest slug coward ever to reside in OUR White House.
    Watching tRumps Presidency has been like watching a bunch of blindfolded dizzy children play pin the tail on the donkey.

    Sorry, but the "draft dodging" nonsense has already been used...and dismissed. Remember Bill Clinton?

    Spouting off about Trump is a nothingburger.

    So in other words Trump dodging the draft is okay, so Bill Clinton dodging the draft is okay in your world?

    I salute this woman for her tremendous sacrifice and service, but she's ignorant of the facts surrounding Trump, but I realize fake news sells with Trump haters.

    Re: Tammy Duckworth labels Trump a coward

    I find it disturbing for a United States Senator to publicly label the President of the United States of America a "coward."

    This does not help our country's standing in the world.

    I also think that even some thoughtful supporters of hers may feel that she should have refrained from such invective.
