Unbelievable. Memorial Day was a day to celebrate our veterans and pay respect to those who have sacrificed their time and their lives for our country. And on this day President Trump, the Commander in Chief, chose to insult a member of Congress, Conor Lamb. Lamb is a military veteran, having served as a captain in the Marines.
Trump said in a tweet, “Connor Lamm has proven to be an American fraud, and a puppet for Crazy Nancy Pelosi. He said he would NOT vote for her for Speaker, and did.” Unfortunately, Mr. Trump didn’t know how to spell his name, writing Connor Lamm, not Conor Lamb. And, of course, he falsely claimed he was a “puppet” for Pelosi when in fact Lamb was one of only 15 Democrats who did not vote for her to be Speaker of the House. Calling a veteran, a member of Congress a fraud is unspeakable, especially for a person whose military record includes dodging military service because of a “bone spur.”
When will the Republican Party demand some decency, honesty, accuracy, and patriotism from our current resident of the White House? In saying nothing, they are complicit in his foul mouth and poor judgment. Certainly a sad time in our nation’s history.
