‘Cadet Bone Spurs’: Sen. Tammy Duckworth smacks down Trump after he accuses Democrats of ‘treason’

Published

on

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) on Monday hit back at Donald Trump after the president suggested Democrats who did not clap for him during the State of the Union may have committed “treason.”

During a speech in Cincinnati on Monday, Trump told the crowd Democrats “were like death and un-American” during his speech last week.

“They were like death and un-American. Un-American,” Trump claimed. “Somebody said, ‘treasonous.’ I mean, Yeah, I guess why not? Can we call that treason? Why not? I mean they certainly didn’t seem to love our country that much.”

Duckworth hit back at those remarks.

“We don’t live in a dictatorship or a monarchy,” Duckworth, a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel, tweeted. “I swore an oath ― in the military and in the Senate ― to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs and clap when he demands I clap.”

"The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."
