Duckworth to "draft dodger" Trump: Don't lecture me on the military

Sen. Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran who lost both of her legs in combat, blasted President Trump — whom she branded as a draft-dodging "Cadet Bone Spurs" — in a speech on the Senate floor yesterday for blaming Democrats for holding military pay hostage in the government shutdown.

QuoteIf you cared about our military, you'd stop baiting Kim Jong-un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops and millions of innocent civilians in danger.
