Tammy Duckworth’s history of US military and public service

Tammy Duckworth's history of US military and public service 1

 

Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth, a US Army veteran who lost both of her legs while serving in Iraq, rebuked Tucker Carlson after the conservative Fox News host attacked her suggested that she hates America.
"Does @TuckerCarlson want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?" Duckworth wrote on Twitter.
Duckworth was awarded the Purple Heart after she lost her legs in 2004 when a rocket-propelled grenade hit the helicopter she was co-piloting during the Iraq War.
Duckworth later retired from the Illinois Army National Guard as a lieutenant colonel and went on to serve as the assistant secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs in the Obama administration.
When she was elected to the US Senate in 2016, she became the first female double-amputee to serve in the chamber and she was the first senator to give birth while in office.
But Carlson, whose controversial comments over the years have prompted multiple advertiser boycotts, sought to question her patriotism on his Fox News program.
"You're not supposed to criticize Tammy Duckworth in any way because she once served in the military," Carlson said, acknowledging that he was aware of her service.

    Chuds are saying she’s not a hero now. 😂 their hero is Tucker, a trust funder who wore a bowtie until he 40 years old.
    That tells you all you need to know about the modern Republican Party.

      They’re part of the Republican Attack Machine that’s brought US the past two Republican presidents, neither of whom got a majority of votes. Dirty Tricks is their motto. “E Dirties Tricksum”.

      God! It’s like that interview with Scarimucci… “If I gotta aide and abet the President, then that’s what I’ll do!”

      Yea!Tucker makes Giuliani turn over in his vampire casket!

      Yet even now, when the Putin-loving prez visits a group of US military, they cheer him like a sports hero. There are still a lot of military folks who need to wake up and smell the covfefe.

  4. Tucker is acting like a child. I think he should grow up.

  5. The fact that Tucker Carlson thought it was a good idea to attack a person who is twice the American he is ridiculous

    • @Dave Bronstein Dave, have you looked at my Senators resume? No you haven’t. Well its EMPTY.
      Many here in Illinois can’t figure how she got a Congress House job and jump to Senator.
      Tucker Carson= No 1 cable news show. My guess us you never watched him. Why? Cause you only want someone to tell you what you want to hear.

    • @Richard Ralph Roehl Tucker is a grily man who dances well. He is not one hundreth as brave as that woman. Tucker didn’t serve, he doesn’t know what it is like to risk his life for his country. In other words, tUcker is a spoiled brat with a huge and filthy mouth, same as Donnie “bunker boi.”

    • @Mike Hall Cuomo didn’t hide in a Bunker when the American people came out in mass. He knows that we the people see him as the president that tRump refused to be. Although Cuomo couldn’t coordinate a nationwide campaign, he set the example of how to control the pandemic in a very populated state.
      Now, go kiss De Santis feet.

    • @glenglish glenglish please tell us all how we ” underestimated Duckworth? Come on, tell us how >my< do nothing Senator, is worthy of Congress? THERE 1000S OF VETS WITH HER RESUME.

    • D.O.A_ Unpossibles This is (mostly) fantasy, virtual violence and not directed at the person they’re angry with. When you post something against misogyny and you receive rape threats, death threats and that old favourite, raped until you die threats directly to your social media and your physical work and home addresses, that’s violence — is it too warm here? you look a little blurred around the edges

    Tammy is a hero and that makes these cowards attack her because they’re ashamed of their own lack of spine. So instead of getting her daddy to pay off a doctor for a fake medical report, she sacrificed her legs and almost her life.

    If you haven’t served you don’t get to insult her. You want to disagree with her, fine, that’s America. But calling her anything but a hero is the most scummy thing I can think of.

      @Eli Dicken yeah, that’s the guy, he said I could keep my doctor and insurance too, and insulted millions of law abiding, responsible firearm owners and bible “clingers”, oh and he spoke a little too soon when criticizing a Ferguson police officer, who in self defense shot and killed a black man, the same guy who wanted to spread every one else’s wealth, and gave “back” billions of dollars to Iran, same guy that is embarrassingly hypocritical given his new found wealth!

      @Steve Chance as if it’s any of your business, I grew up with little more than loving parents who instilled values they believed in, honesty, hard work, self reliance, self respect, helping other when you can. Because of them, I’ve done very well, I pay a hell of a lot of taxes, pump my own gas, buy my own groceries, take my garbage out, & mow my own lawn.I couldn’t care less, how much money our President has. He only has so much power, the senators and congressmen who have spent decades enriching themselves are the problem!

This country has never been so divided and its all because of trump and yet you see it as the democrats. Man fox news brain washed you well. And you have the nerve to talk about prayer. Why don’t you quote me some scripture where Jesus says anything that has to do with Republican policy. He would have been disgusted. You’re a horrible person.

      @Neil O. It would seem that it’s the Trump cult who hate the military. I’ve not heard one thing said by a Democrat anywhere near the disrespect for military personnel quite like the cult. You guys are low lives, and extraordinarily stupid for thinking a game show host is qualified to lead.

    • @Slick Rock I agree with everything you said. She wants people to obey her.

    • Change he’ll to you’ll and then I will say, Bravo.
      I’ve been watching them both for several years.
      My bet is that at parties Tucker struggles from clique to clique trying to fit into one….any one, but is met with turned backs, whereas Duckworth, who really knows the constitution back and forth, would be in the center of any conversation going on in the room.
      Duckworth for VP.

    I guarantee that if cameras weren’t around, Tucker wouldn’t be “brave” enough to say those things to her in person. There’s only 1 coward where the 2 of them are concerned and it isn’t the combat vet who lost her legs…..

      There should be a medal for people like Tucker who prop up the president ad nauseum: a gilded pair of Duckworth’s lost legs, to hang around their necks on a golden chain.

    These attacks cone at the same time as Tammy Duckworth is mentioned as a VP nominee. Coincidence? Of course not.

      Good point PK. I also notice sites with Bible stories often have their comments turned off. They want to spew their bile, but don’t tolerate any feedback.

    • @Ken Albertsen Carlson knows a lot more about Duckworth that’s why she won’t go on his show.

      @Ken Albertsen The comments get their content demonetized, they do it to protect their wealth, Tucker values his wealth more than the ideals he preaches about.

      @Joy Phillips i know several registered Democrats who have been deployed on numerous occasions. Your REPUBLICAN President Trump was a draft dodger and W. Bush was in a non-deployable Air Guard unit to avoid deployment. You’re not making good points.

    • Ken Albertsen | July 8, 2020 at 10:41 PM | Reply

      Interesting how Trump’s bone spurs acted up when he was at a military venue (hobbling down an easy ramp).

    • @A B if i’m not mistaken, discussing the problem at hand and having a dialogue hearing from both sides is the definition of a free democracy. stop misconstruing the senator’s words just to create a narrative. for fucks sake..

  17. The only battle Carlson has ever had to fight is with his conscience ! Lost every campaign

  18. Kenney Cooper | July 8, 2020 at 8:23 PM | Reply

    She lost her legs and almost lost her life, but being criticized by a man who’s lost his mind. I’m sure Trump is so proud of him.

    • Sounds like it’s being exploited for her to me… There’s nothing wrong with a national conversation. Personally I think we should leave the Washington statue but change the placard to something like “General, Criminal, Racist, Patriot, Founding Father.” Include the good AND the bad🤷‍♂️

    • @Pam Schobelock I don’t think she’s flaunting her injuries at all. The only time she’s mentioned her service or sacrifice is when her character or patriotism has been questioned, especially with this administration. Carlson isn’t questioning her policies as a Senator. He’s questioning her character and patriotism. I’m sure your husband would agree that is the lowest blow you can deliver to a service member. Especially one who sacrifice so much for this country. There use to be a time when insulting and questioning a military officers patriotism was a complete no-no. Now in this administration its completely acceptable.

    I don’t get the logic of calling a Purple Heart recipient who lost their legs in active service a coward.
