Trump Jr. attacks Vindman: 'Total absolution if you are a leftist veteran'

Oh, lookie here the Traitor Tot speaks! Just another member of the tRump clan disrespecting highly decorated officers. Generations of trumpies that did not have the guts to serve their country. Those testifying are putting Country over party. They are heros. You, Junior? You are a zero as is the rest of your ilk.



Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday sharply attacked a witness in the House's impeachment inquiry into his father, President Trump, accusing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman of being a "leftist" who Democrats have tried to portray as "beyond reproach."

In an interview with "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday morning, the president's eldest son lashed out at Vindman, a Purple Heart recipient and Iraq War veteran, accusing him without evidence of harboring left-wing political views.

“They do the usual thing, they bring in another guy that they believe is beyond reproach. Like they did with Mueller,” Trump Jr. said, referring to former special counsel Robert Mueller, another decorated veteran who served in the Vietnam War.

“It was a joke. So now they’ll do it with this guy. …Now it turns out he’s talking to the Ukraine or he wanted to edit [the] transcript," Trump Jr. continued.

………………..

From the earliest days of our nation, the armed forces have included volunteers born in foreign countries—men like Revolutionary War heroes Colonel Thaddeus Kościuszko of Poland, whose statue stands at the center of my alma mater West Point; General Lafayette of France; and General Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben of Prussia. Without them, the American experiment may have been stillborn.

For more than two centuries since then, the Army has provided a home for foreign-born soldiers looking to prove their dedication to their adopted country, including the thousands of men who fought at Gettysburg in the Irish Brigade and the Polish-born General John Shalikashvili, who served as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the 1990s. On 9/11, the British-born Rick Rescorla, who earned a Silver Star for valor in the battle of Ia Drang in Vietnam, gave his life leading civilians to safety.

On the long list of immigrant soldiers is also Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, who was born in Ukraine and came to the United States at the age of 3. Vindman began his Army career as an infantry officer, earned his Ranger Tab, and later, while leading troops in Iraq, his Combat Infantryman’s Badge. During that tour, he was wounded and was awarded a Purple Heart.

But what has made Vindman famous was that yesterday, he put on his dress blues and marched to Capitol Hill to testify that he witnessed potentially improper behavior by President Donald Trump. And for this act of duty, he was smeared as an untrustworthy foreigner.

1. The Trump family stands for nothing but enriching themselves.

And the GOP is the Party of catering to the rich as they pretend to respect veterans.

3. Let's see, Vindman: Self made man; up from humble beginnings; long record of service to the courtry

Yeah, I can see why Jr. doesn't like him. He's everything the Trump family isn't.

13. In five years..........

it's going to be wonderful to see where Lt. Col. Vindman is (comfortable and confident in the service of his country) and Jr. (wearing orange, working in the laundry and looking forward to his release while serving 10 to 25).

26. Money does not buy CLASS, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, or HUMILITY.....

Jr. is going down. Just like with his other grifter Brother and Sister. The State of New York is going to get them and hit them hard where it hurts. They will rue the day they were born.

6. OFFS



Jr. needs to go to the nearest recruitment center and sign his ass up instead of insulting those who do. Hell, Biden's now-deceased son Beau was an Army JAG who deployed to Iraq.



Meanwhile big mouth Jr. is doing nothing but grifting like his con man father and ignoring his illegal immigrant mother.

17. You are welcome sheshe

I think people forget about Beau since Joe's other son has been in the midst of a smear campaign.

The GOP attacking those who came here to the U.S. and followed the rules and volunteered to give their lives, should not be mocked by these coward GOP idiots.

18. The GOP are weak useless creatures without heart or soul.


I can't imagine a mom or a dad outliving their child. Heartbreaking that Biden lost two along with their mother.

He's a bully and a coward just like his daddy.

20. Every time he opens his mouth, he ends up proving that he is the dumber Trump brother

by far. At least Eric can manage to keep his fat trap shut most of the time.
