Curt Schilling Gets Smacked Down on Twitter After Questioning Veteran’s Military Service

curt-schilling

Former Major League Baseball pitcher and Breitbart radio host Curt Schilling —who has never served in the military — attacked a veteran of the War in Afghanistan on Twitter and questioned how dangerous his service really was.

Former Democratic Senate candidate and liberal activist Jason Kander criticized a statement from President Donald Trump Monday that American soldiers don’t “fight to win.”

Schilling, who did not serve in the military, took exception to Kander’s framing of the comments the following day. At one point, he questioned how often Kander left the base for more dangerous environs.

As it happens, Kander was outside the wire fairly often. He then snarkily asked how Schilling’s military service went (Schilling did not serve in the military).

While Schilling has never served in the military, he protested that he did visit soldiers (while continuing to imply Kander didn’t actually contribute). But Kander came back with a sarcastic deathblow.
