'I left parts of my body in Iraq': Duckworth rips into GOP rep who said Democrats 'love' terrorists

Feb 2006
Washington (CNN)Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who lost both of her legs serving in the Iraq War, on Thursday ripped into the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee who has accused Democrats of being "in love with terrorists."
In an interview Wednesday on Fox News, Republican Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia also claimed, without evidence, that members of the Democratic Party mourn the recent death of top Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani more than they do fallen US service members. No congressional Democrat has mourned Soleimani, whom US officials have blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.

"I'm not going to dignify that with a response. I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists," Duckworth told CNN's Brianna Keilar on "CNN Right Now." "I don't need to justify myself to anyone."

Asked by Keilar what she thought about Collins suggesting members of her party mourn Soleimani more than fallen service members, Duckworth replied: "I'm disgusted. I would never, ever use Gold Star families, military men and women, or their families, as any pawn in any political game."

I'll do whatever I can to make sure this political prostitute (Nikki Haley) never gets to be president:

You don't see anyone standing up for Iran," Haley said on "Hannity" Monday. "You're not hearing any of the Gulf members [states], you're not hearing China, you're not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates. ...

As we have discovered throughout the Trump presidency, there is NO LOW that is TOO LOW. There is NO LIE that is shocking enough. There is no insult too disgusting. There is no disrespect too uncivil.
Trump and his Cult have made all this perfectly clear.
Look at their constituency, they are the lowest of the low, so its not surprising. Republicans (like the Fox news hot air blowers) are just scumbags cashing in on duping ignorant, easily manipulated people. Despicable people

And I don't know if they will ever realize how wrong they are and how stupid they are being, and how they are cheering on the greed that has brought our country to its knees. But hey, stock market is great for the rich and min wage jobs are plentiful. Too bad you can't live on that

it's only noon, I don't think they usually wake up until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon ;)
I went to Collins' Twitter feed and left a few comments. What a douche. He's now trying to weasel his way out of what he said. Little too late for that.
