Trump Just Smeared The Service Of An Army Medic In Viriginia Election Tweet

President Bone Spurs, the Vietnam War draft-dodger was perfectly content to let other Americans go off and die while he sat at home and lived the luxurious life afforded to him by his wealthy father, feeling so entitled to his privileges and so apathetic to the deaths of others that he once callously referred to his own “personal Vietnam” being his avoidance of venereal diseases.

This is, of course, the same man who attacked prisoners of war and Gold Star families during, and after the election. He’s the most overtly craven president this country has ever had the distinct misfortune of having elected.

Today, Virginians are headed to the polls to cast their votes for governor. On one side is the Republican Ed Gillespie, who has been enthusiastically endorsed by our incompetent commander-in-chief, and who has also run an explicitly racist campaign, including advertisements in which he advocates for the preservation and protection of Confederate statues, a transparent entreaty to Trump’s racist base.

On the other side is Democrat Ralph Northam, who is Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, a physician with pediatric experience, and most relevantly in regards to Trump, a veteran. Northam served in the Army for eight years.

Disgustingly, Trump took to Twitter this morning to accuse Northam, a veteran, of being weak on veterans issue. It’s an utterly false, Trumpian lie and just the latest incident of Trump’s claims to support our military servicemen and women being undermined by the claims themselves. Trump attacked a veteran in order to…defend veterans?

Trump also accused Northam of being Anti-Second Amendment. Northam is not against the Second Amendment, he simply wants safer, better gun control. Trump’s tweet is especially tone-deaf after the Texas church shooting this past Sunday and the Las Vegas massacre a little over a month ago. Per usual, the president has demonstrated that he has absolutely no idea what this country needs.

Northam is the only choice here. Gillespie will turn out to be just another Trump yes-man and aid him in his headlong charge to destroy and undermine the democratic foundations of this great country.

If you live in Virginia, be sure to get to the polls today, bring your friends, and vote Ralph Northam.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
