Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.
The president’s eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.
“Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero,” Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece’s headline.

His suggestion infuriated other social media users.
How long did you serve in the armed forces?

Feeling small in the shadow of a great man? Typical.

Says the guy who thinks giving up some money is the same thing as giving your life for your country.
This whole administration has been falling over themselves to play the victim. Remember when Melania said she was "the most bullied person in the world?"

This coming from a person who had to run out of a book signing because people were being mean.

Vindeman only has a purple heart. If he were a real patriot, he'd have bone spurs. Right?

I know it's hard for you to understand from your ivory tower, but the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting this country are called heroes. The only gun you've picked up was for trophy hunting, not self defense. You wouldn't understand.

People who have never done a selfless thing in their entire lives are really incapable of understanding those who choose a life of public service, and the very idea seems so outlandish to them that it invites disbelief and contempt. pic.twitter.com/aNJmyQihQj
