(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a press release endorsing Connecticut Senate candidate Leora Levy, former President Donald Trump blasted longtime political rival Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn, for his lies.
Blumenthal famously fibbed about serving in the Vietnam War–what would today be considered a crime under H.R. 258 or the Stolen Valor Act of 2013.
Trump suggested that it’s time for someone to unseat the aging liar, and that Leora Levy is the right candidate for the job.
“The current Senator is a mocked and laughed at fool, who said for many years that he was a brave war hero in Vietnam, when the facts later revealed that he had never even been to Vietnam,” Trump wrote.
“Blumenthal stated, over and over again, that he had watched men die by his side as he fought in battle, talked and bragged about it incessantly, and yet it was all a total hoax and ‘con job,’ and he should no longer be rewarded for the horrible fairytale that he has spun.”
Trump also brought back one of his greatest nicknames, “Da Nang Dick.”
“‘Da Nang’ Dick acts so sanctimonious and righteous when in actuality he is a coward who has gotten away with this disgusting crime against our Military for years,” Trump continued.
“Leora has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” he concluded.
Trump has attacked Blumenthal–who has adopted a ‘holier than thou’ attitude–for many years.
“Look at Blumenthal,” Trump said during a speech in 2018. “He lied about Vietnam … for 15 years he said he was a war hero! We call him Da Nang Richard. That’s his nickname — Da Nang. He never went to Vietnam!”
“He’s up there saying, ‘we need honesty and we need integrity.’ This guy lied. When he was the attorney general of Connecticut, he lied! I don’t mean a little bit.”
