TRUMP SLAMS FAKE VIETNAM VETERAN SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL FOR ALLEGED CRITICISM OF TRUMP BY SC NOMINEE NEIL GORSUCH

Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said judge Neil Gorsuch said Trump's attacks on the judiciary were 'demoralizing and disheartening'

President Trump went after Blumenthal on Twitter Thursday

( Daily Mail ) Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut made headlines Wednesday night when he said Trump’s Supreme Court pick, judge Neil Gorsuch, agreed with his own substantial concerns about the president’s slams on judges – including one who ruled against Trump’s new immigration order.

‘He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way,’ Blumenthal said following his meeting with Gorsuch.

Trump hammered Senator Blumenthal in a tweet Thursday morning meant to shred Blumenthal’s credibility following the revelation.

‘Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?’ Trump tweeted.

The pushback brought up a troubling part of Blumenthal’s record. While running for the Senate in 2010 while serving as the attorney general of Connecticut, the New York Times revealed that Blumenthal had claimed he served ‘in Vietnam’ when addressing veterans’ groups.

In one example, Blumenthal said to a group in 2008, ‘We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam. And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.’

Blumenthal got multiple deferments from the war, joining the Marine Reserves in 1970 but was stationed in Washington and never served in-country

    This Blumenthal character is a joke. I listened to him make a fool of himself when he questioned Senator Sessions during the hearings for the AG nominee. Connecticut voters must be crazy.
