    More and more Americans are getting sick of the incompetence and lack of leadership shown by trump. Thankfully more of them are beginning to speak out about it. Even cowardly GOP congressmen are beginning to grow a spine, starting to take a stance in favor of America, and pointing out some of trump’s massive deficiencies.

    Senator Duckworth is a veteran who obviously has no fear of the boy in the Oval Office, and in this article she tells it like it is.

    ------
    “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 continued. “Sadly, this is something that the current occupant of the Oval Office does not seem to care to do — and I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”

    “And I have a message for cadet bone spurs: If you cared about our military, you’d stop baiting Kim Jong Un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops, and millions of innocent civilians, in danger.”
    Duckworth, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, lost both of her legs when a rocket-propelled grenade shot down the helicopter she was piloting over Iraq in 2004.

    For trump supporters who don’t want to remember who Senator Tammy DUckworth is, here’s a short reminder:

    Duckworth, is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, who lost both of her legs when a rocket-propelled grenade shot down the helicopter she was piloting over Iraq in 2004.

    Actually, she does.

    President Trump is the Commander-in-Chief of US Armed Forces by the will of the American people.

    She’s a Democrat and a partisan hack that has put the interests of illegals above Americans including the military. Her opinion is thus irrelevant.

    The will of the Electoral College. Otherwise the will of the American people would have had Hillary there.

    You obviously don’t understand how the will of the American people is expressed under the American system.

    Isn’t their a test on that for immigrants?

    Brainwashed Trump cult members will demonize and name call, mock and lie about anyone who criticizes their master.

    All of a sudden, military service becomes important to the party that works to dismantle the military.

    She's a patriot, a veteran, and she has more character and balls than the Orange Asshole stinking up our White House will ever have. She knows trump it a total fraud and a con man. And that is what his supporters cannot bear to admit.
