In a chilling expose, comments and actions from Trump revealed by unnamed sources from the White House showed his disrespect for members of the military who have fallen in action.
The story published in The Atlantic was so shocking and stomach-churning that former Vice President Joe Biden released a statement saying, “if what is written in the Atlantic is true, it’s disgusting and it affirms what most of us believe to be true — that Donald Trump is not fit to do the job of president, be the commander-in-chief. If these statements are true, the president should humbly apologize to every Gold Star mother and father and every Blue Star family that he’s denigrated.”
Senator Tammy Duckworth, a military veteran who had lost both of her legs in a helicopter crash in the Iraq war, stated that Trump “insulted war heroes, he’s attacked Gold Star families and he’s even tried to politicize and pervert our own military to stroke his own ego.”
Of course, Trump turned to the only defense he knows how to use: lies. He tweeted: “The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance. Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against. Just like the Fake Dossier. You fight and fight, and then people realize it was a total fraud!”
