The president is good at tweeting at people who criticize him. The latest is Connecticut Senator Blumenthal, over his Vietnam-era military service.
My seven year old might be more socially mature than our current President. Every morning I scroll through my favorite online current event sites and rarely is there a morning where I don’t read a new report of outlandish behavior courtesy of our Nation’s leader. Of all the personnel in President Trump’s world, can no one be appointed to stand next to his computer and slap it shut when he tries to tweet? Can we get someone on that assignment stat please.
How is anyone ever going to take you seriously if you are spending your days ranting away on social media? Even tweens know that kind of behavior is immature and ridiculous Donald. Sigh. So here is the most recent tweet-tastic rant from our fearless (and clueless leader:)
While on his 17 day “working vacation” President Trump decided that rehashing old attacks on a United States Senator might be a fantastic use of his time. Perhaps some of you caught Senator Blumenthal’s recent public outcry on CNN for continuing the investigation into alleged Russian interference in our recent US election. “Politicizing the Department of Justice for personal ends, I think, is a disservice to the law, and it’s also potentially a violation of the spirit of the First Amendment,” stated the Connecticut Senator.
Of course this wasn’t going to sit well with the United States Commander in Chief, so he did what he does best. He took to Twitter to bully his fellow American legislator. “Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal,” Trump wrote on Twitter shortly afterward. “He told stories about his Vietnam battles and … conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child.” President Trump referred to Blumenthal as a “phony Vietnam Con Artist,” as he referenced the controversy that surrounded Blumenthal’s 2010 remarks regarding his service in the Marines. Indeed the Connecticut Senator had grossly misspoken of his service in Vietnam. Basically he never left the United States, yet he publicly insinuated that he fought tooth and nail in the Vietnam War. “On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility,” stated Blumenthal only days after his statements were made.
