Sen. Tammy Duckworth: 'Cadet Bone Spurs' Won't Tell Me When To Clap

Iraq War veteran and U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) criticized President Donald Trump for calling Democrats who did not clap during his State of the Union address “treasonous” on Monday.

“We don’t live in a dictatorship or a monarchy,” Duckworth tweeted soon after he made the comment. “I swore an oath ― in the military and in the Senate ― to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs and clap when he demands I clap.”

This is not the first time Duckworth, a Black Hawk helicopter pilot who received the Purple Heart after she lost both her legs in Iraq when her helicopter was stuck by a grenade, has referred to Trump as “Cadet Bone Spurs,” a reference to Trump’s stated reason for not being drafted during the Vietnam War.

During a floor speech last month, she also called Trump a “five-deferment draft dodger” as she slammed the president for criticizing Democrats’ support for the military.

“I spent my entire adult life looking out for the well-being, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible,” she said. “I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”

Another Democrat who is going to run on hate, because the Democrats have nothing else to run on; they have nothing positive, optimistic, or anything of any value to offer.

So, they hang on to DACA to try to use them for political and financial gain; having used DACA for a fund raiser. The whole thing is pathetic.


"DNC Chair Tom Perez sent out a fundraising email cashing in on the DACA hysteria by calling the Trump administration’s DACA decision “morally repugnant,” and then asking for a quick donation “right now.”


Democrat moto:

WE HATE TRUMP MORE THAN WE LOVE AMERICA.
