Trump Jr. Nukes Disgraced Comedian After She Posts Lies About A Decorated War Veteran
Disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin not only got put in her place by Trump Jr. but looked like a complete idiot over comments she made attack Defense Secretary Mark Esper who is a decorated combat veteran.
On Wednesday, Giffin attacked Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark Esper and made false claims about his service in the military questioning why President Donald Trump appointed him to the position.
Griffin who was rightfully ostracized from the US after her photoshoot holding up a fake severed head of President Trump. humiliated herself further on twitter asking her followers, “Who is the current secretary of defense?”
Later Griffin posted, “Ok, it’s time to admit how ignorant we are. His name is Mark Esper. Trump chose him because he used to work at Boeing. He was a captain in the army during a non-war period.”
Not one word of what Griffen wrote that was true. President Trump did not choose him because he worked at Boeing, it never came up in his confirmation hearing because he NEVER for Boeing. Esper is also a combat veteran who served in the Gulf War with the 101st Airborne Division.
Trump Jr. responded in a statement to the Daily Wire about Griffin’s lies and said:
“The left can’t even be creative with their lies anymore. Secretary Esper is a combat veteran who was awarded both the Bronze Star and the Combat Infantryman’s Badge. He served as Secretary of the Army. He’s a West Point & Harvard graduate with a PhD from George Washington University. And he never worked for Boeing. That tweet is quite similar to Griffin’s career — a bad joke and a failure.”
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) also spoke up and said, “Secretary Esper is a proven warrior who walks the walk and is an amazing patriot who has been an exceptional Secretary of Defense thus far.”
The Department of Defense also mentions the awards that Esper has earned throughout his service:
Dr. Esper is a recipient of the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service. Among his many military awards and decorations are the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal, the Kuwait Liberation Medal, Kuwait Liberation Medal-Saudi Arabia, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.”
As one former senior White House official put it, “Mark Esper is a decorated combat veteran and has earned the respect from every American for his service. The same can’t be said for Kathy Griffin, whose claim to fame is being a pathetic comic trying to revive her failed, worthless career.”
