Trump on Vindman: 'I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in'

Source: The Hill

President Trump said Tuesday that he does not know Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the White House national security official testifying in connection with the House impeachment inquiry, and said he would let others make up their minds as to his credibility.

“I never saw the man. I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in,” Trump told reporters at the White House during a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday when asked if Vindman was credible. “No, I don’t know Vindman at all. What I do know is that he said the transcript was correct.”

“Vindman, I watched him for a little while this morning, and I think he — I’m going to let people make their own determination,” Trump, who last month called Vindman a “Never Trumper,” continued.

His remarks came as Vindman testified on Capitol Hill about a July 25 phone call he listened in on between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

13. Maybe there are still a few of those "White House guard" uniforms that Nixon...

redesigned in 1970 lying around (although I guess they were given to a high school band). That's if any would fit Trump.

3. Lt. Col. Vindman "wears his uniform when he goes in."

Extortionist-#45 is expressing his jealousy that Lt. Col. Vindman has the right to wear his uniform into a House hearing.

Someday, Conald will have his own special uniform -- mandatory stripes on his shoulders.

So impressive, exhibiting a modicum of restraint.

14. ..."after the DT noise machine has run a few cycles..."

He knows he's outta his league here.... but he still trusts that his loyal noise makers will fix it and sway "people."

Perhaps we'll never see movement in Trump approval, but seems to me if we do see movement, it can only be away from him.

6. At least Lt.Col. Vindman dresses to show respect

for the members of Congress he is meeting.
OTOH, gym jordan can't even be bothered put on a suit.

11. Sounds like old bone spurs is jealous

After cowardly dodging the draft and lying. Typical pattern from his type, attack them when your too much of a liar to testify under oath. Hillary did, and for 11hours , but bone spurs can't even do that.

16. His rank is Cadet.

He couldn't have handled a week of boot, let alone hang in long enough to make E-4.

My apologies to any real cadets in the audience.

Maybe trump should try that himself for effect. I’m sure he still fits in his cadet uniform from reform school.

20. Military is not always required to wear their uniform

when they work in DC agencies. I know at one DC area Navy command, the officers only wore their uniforms 1 day a week, otherwise it was regular business attire.

21. Not uncommon particularly for personnel involved in intelligence, security or internal affairs

Keeping a low profile.

However, reporting to the WH, Congress or Supreme Court, service uniform is mandatory.

22. "This is America...Here right matters."

“I’ve served, defended...My brothers served...”

As opposed to Cadet Bonespurs.
