PRICELESS! Trump Dropped Crushing Anvil On ‘Total Phony’ Sen. Blumenthal For Faking Vietnam Service

Published

on

Isn’t it great to finally have a president who calls it like it is?

Yesterday 100Percent FedUp reported that President Donald Trump did just that when he called out Senator Richard Blumenthal over his lifetime of lies.

“Senator Richard Blumenthal must talk about his fraudulent service in Vietnam,” Trump tweeted, “where for 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero. Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!”

The senator had it coming, and President Trump is the perfect person to deliver it.

Here is more on Blumenthal and his lies via Heavy:

“1. The New York Times Reported in 2010 That Blumenthal Lied About Vietnam Service in a Speech

With his tweets, President Trump is referring to a situation that unfolded during the 2010 U.S. Senate elections, when Richard Blumenthal was running against Linda McMahon. In May 2010, The New York Times reported that Blumenthal said in a 2008 speech, “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.”

But as the Times reported, Blumenthal did not actually serve in Vietnam as he suggests there; he received five military deferments from 1965 to 1970. The Times also noted that Blumenthal took repeated steps to avoid going to Vietnam.

Blumenthal actually served in the Marine Reserve beginning in 1970, joining a unit in Washington and working on projects like fixing campgrounds and organizing toy drives. So technically he was serving while the Vietnam War was happening, but he himself did not serve in Vietnam.

“…[W]hat is striking about Mr. Blumenthal’s record is the contrast between the many steps he took that allowed him to avoid Vietnam, and the misleading way he often speaks about that period of his life now, especially when he is speaking at veterans’ ceremonies or other patriotic events,” The New York Times reported.

2. He Also Reportedly Talked in a 2003 Speech About ‘Returning Home’ From Vietnam

After The New York Times ran its story, journalists and political opponents immediately began searching for other examples of Blumenthal lying about his military service.

One that came up was from 2003, when Blumenthal suggested in a speech that he was among those who “returned home” from Vietnam, according to The Day.

Later, a post on the campaign website of Linda McMahon suggested that her opposition researchers had passed along tape of Blumenthal’s 2008 speech to The New York Times, according to Politico. However, The New York Times said that they did not receive the video from McMahon.

The New York Times’ original report also refers to a speech Blumenthal gave to a crowd of military families gathered to support troops overseas. Blumenthal said, “When we returned, we saw nothing like this. Let us do better by this generation of men and women.” That clearly suggests that he includes himself among the group of troops “returning” from Vietnam, but in reality, he was never there.

3. Critics Argued the 2008 Quote Was Taken Out of Context

After The New York Times reported on the 2008 speech, Politico reported that the article was missing some vital context: that Blumenthal had said towards the beginning of that same speech that he “served in the military during the Vietnam era in the Marine Corps,” which is an accurate characterization.

In addition, The Day reported that after viewing years of Blumenthal speeches and political debates, they found that he typically specified that his service was in the Marine Corps Reserve, and in some instances he explicitly said he did not serve in Vietnam.

On one such occasion reported by The Day, Blumenthal said during a Democratic primary debate, “Although I did not serve in Vietnam, I have seen first-hand the effects of military action.”

The statements reported on by outlets like The New York Times and The Day were certainly not truthful, then, but it’s not as if Blumenthal was trying spin an elaborate lie, as the fact that he served in the Marine Corps and not in Vietnam was something he typically mentioned in his speeches.

4. Blumenthal Said That He Misspoke on a Few Occasions

Blumenthal responded to the controversy by saying that he did indeed misspeak on a few occasions, but he denied that he intentionally lied about Vietnam service.

“I may have misspoken, I did misspeak on a few occasions out of hundreds that I have attended (in honor of the military)…I regret that I misspoke,” Blumenthal said during a press conference, according to Politico.

He went on to say that he was “unaware of those misplaced words when they were spoken.”

During the press conference, Blumenthal was also asked why he didn’t correct the record when news articles referred to him as serving in Vietnam. He responded, “There were a few articles, not many. I am responsible for my own statements….I can’t be responsible for all the articles, I may not even have seen them. ….sometimes journalists do make mistakes.”

5. He Took a Hit in the Polls After the Story But Still Won the Election Easily

Richard Blumenthal had been ahead of Linda McMahon in the polls throughout much of the 2010 election cycle, but immediately after the Vietnam story broke, his lead over her began to shrink.

As reported by Talking Points Memo at the time, a poll conducted before The New York Times published its report showed Blumenthal ahead of McMahon 52 percent to 39 percent. But in a poll conducted immediately after the scandal, Blumenthal was ahead of McMahon by just three points, 48 percent to 45 percent.

Still, Blumenthal was able to bounce back from the controversy and easily win the election; he was elected with 55 percent of the vote compared to Linda McMahon’s 43 percent.”

Yes, and this man easily getting reelected shows you either the American voter is awfully misinformed or they just don’t care. Both of which are frightening prospects.

Blumenthal loves to take Republicans apart while he himself is a bonafide liar. Just like Maxine Water’s corruption and instigation of violence against the right it goes unmentioned and unpunished because the left owns the media. And when the right fights back they brand us as racists, bigots and Nazis just because we offer a point of view which differs from their own.

Blumenthal should not be reelected, in fact, he should have been recalled and kicked out of office. But because he is a leftist and they have the support of their media they know perfectly well that there will be no price to pay for any left winger who gets caught doing anything they aren’t supposed to be doing.

And if you don’t believe me just consider the fact that Ted Kennedy was responsible for the death of a young woman and he had a lifetime senate seat and was considered “The Lion of the Senate” by the left, their media, and even his good friend, the late Senator John McCain!

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
