President Donald Trump attacked a Marine veteran on Memorial Day of all days in a desperate and disgraceful effort to campaign for a Republican congressional candidate.
Rep. Conor Lamb served as a Marine for four years and still serves in the reserve as a captain. He ran for Congress in Pennsylvania in 2018, beating a Republican in the race who behaved a lot like Trump.
As a member of our armed forces, Lamb deserves respect, especially from the president. After all, Trump constantly claims that he loves the troops.
But Trump viciously attacked Lamb on Memorial Day by calling him an “American fraud” while singing the praises of Lamb’s Republican challenger.
Sean Parnell is an American Hero. Connor Lamm has proven to be an American fraud, and a puppet for Crazy Nancy Pelosi. He said he would NOT vote for her for Speaker, and did. Will kill 2A. Voted to impeach (on nothing). A TOTAL & COMPLETE Sean Parnell Endorsement! https://t.co/v1OnY0MI8m

Frankly, Parnell should be disgusted with Trump’s attack on his behalf. This is no way for a president to treat a member of the military. Trump didn’t even bother to spell Lamb’s name correctly. And Twitter users also reminded Parnell of why he shouldn’t think being shouted out by Trump is “cool.”
hey @SeanParnellUSA have you heard about that guy who paid a quack doctor to gin up a fake note about imaginary bone spurs so the guy could avoid serving his country? FIVE TIMES, too. I’ll bet that kind of cowardice really burns you up. you’d never support anyone like that, right

You, subhuman scum, have proven to be a pitiful fraud, a felonious fleck of fecal filth and an #ImpeachedForLife loser who rage tweets on Memorial Day when the American death toll is at 100,000 and rising. A TOTAL & COMPLETE @JoeBiden Endorsement! #VoteBidenToSaveAmerica

Conor Lamb is who you are referring to and he served in the US Military. Of course Trump would use Memorial Day to smear a US Veteran.

What disgraceful way to talk about a U.S. vet!
Conor Lamb was a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps. He completed active duty service in 2013.
He supports bold campaign finance reform, & doesn’t take contributions from corporate PACs.

Lamb himself also responded to Trump’s attack.
These people have been lying about my record since the day I became a candidate.
It hasn’t stopped, and it won’t stop, until we beat them at the ballot box in November. pic.twitter.com/XKvtDy0Udw

This was certainly no way to treat a veteran on Memorial Day and it speaks to how Trump really feels about our men and women in uniform.
