Trump Rips ‘Total Phony’ Sen. Blumenthal: ‘Must Talk About His Fraudulent Service in Vietnam’


As the news cycle continues to be dominated by Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process and the new FBI investigation, President Donald Trump took a swipe on Twitter this afternoon at one of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who has been very outspoken about Kavanaugh and the hearings.

“Senator Richard Blumenthal must talk about his fraudulent service in Vietnam,” Trump tweeted, “where for 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero. Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!”

Trump is referring to the scandal during Blumenthal’s 2010 campaign for Senate when The New York Times found false claims he made about his service during Vietnam.

And this isn’t the first time Trump’s brought it up to go after Blumenthal:
