Duckworth fires back at Trump: I swore an oath to the Constitution, not 'Cadet Bone Spurs'
The Hill ^ | February 5, 2018 | JACQUELINE THOMSEN

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) fired back at President Trump for calling Democrats who didn’t stand and applaud during his State of the Union address “treasonous,” saying she didn’t swear an oath “to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs.”

Tammy Duckworth✔ @SenDuckworth We don't live in a dictatorship or a monarchy. 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 https://twitter.com/mitchellreports/status/960609070075076611 … 7:04 PM - Feb 5, 2018

Trump called Democrats “treasonous” earlier Monday for not applauding when he listed his achievements to Congress last Tuesday.

"Can we call that treason? Why not?" Trump said during a speech about the GOP tax plan in Ohio. "They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."

Duckworth was referring to Trump’s multiple deferments from the draft during the Vietnam War, one of which was for heel spurs, or bone protrusions caused by calcium buildup.

The Democrat also shared a quote by President Theodore Roosevelt saying that to block criticism of the president “is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

So what do you call a bunch of Democrats who refuse to smile, clap, or stand for anything he said, including record low unemployment for black Americans?

She’s my generation’s McCain. She believes that her honorable service and sacrifice of her limbs, insulates her from any criticism.

Going back to the Civil War the Democrat Party has been the party of treason and sedition.

President Trump doesn't' have to that kind of crap from people who flew the flag of North Vietnam.

I’d call them boorish, petty, partisan, and disrespectful. But “treasonous”? That was a bridge too far, IMHO.

I have a hard time criticizing a disabled veteran, but I could not vote for her, nor could I vote for the horrible Mark Kirk, so I voted for a 3rd party candidate who had no chance of winning, but at least I did my civic duty.

No different than the Republicans during an Obama State of the Union address?

I call them the opposition party. Their conduct didn't surprise me much. I don't recall a lot of Republicans enthusiastically cheering 0bama. In fact, one Republican even called him a liar.

So typical, they twist his comment that they should be ashamed that they wouldn’t applaud things like record low unemployment for blacks into criticism for not applauding him.

Yes she does think she’s untouchable. That card is being over played and will eventually wear out. She’s playing to her PussyHat wearing voter base.

Respect for them stops when they turn traitor. She did to get to power.

Thank you for your service and sacrifices for this country Senator Duckworth. That doesn’t mean you get an eternal free pass from criticism as a Senator.

American military personnel can be treasonous to this country as well, please see Benedict Arnold, John Anthony Walker, Clayton Lonetree and George Trofimoff.

Yes, that may have been a bridge too far, but I appreciate the fact that President Trump fired that shot at them.

He’s a street fighter, and not afraid to use the weapons at his disposal.
