President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter at a senior Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Trump attacked Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who previously served as the United States Attorney for Connecticut and was elected five times as Attorney General in the state.
“Watched Da Nang Dick Blumenthal on television spewing facts almost as accurate as his bravery in Vietnam (which he never saw),” Trump tweeted. “As the bullets whizzed by Da Nang Dicks head, as he was saving soldiers….left and right, he then woke up from his dream screaming that HE LIED.”
“Next time I go to Vietnam, I will ask ‘the Dick’ to travel with me!” Trump promised.
Blumenthal spent six years in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves during the Vietnam era. Trump never served.
On Friday, Blumenthal appeared on MSNBC to discuss Trump being listed as an unindicted co-conspirator.
Blumenthal predicted that “as the walls close in on Donald Trump, he is going to be more desperate, more destructive, and potentially more damaging.”
