Rewriting history always seems to be an ongoing issue with the left, for example, who among us can forget President Obama promising us over and over again “if you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare” or this little ditty “Obamacare will reduce healthcare premiums by $2,500 a year.”

And who can forget Hillary Clinton “landing under sniper fire” in Bosnia exclaiming at a press conference: “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead, we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

However, the most creative and perhaps egregious rewriting of history came from Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut during the 2010 heated campaign against Republican challenger Linda McMahon, in which Blumenthal claimed to have fought in Vietnam. Moreover, in 2003 the good senator in a speech actually claimed he was among those who “returned home”.

So let’s set the record straight; “NONE OF THE ABOVE ACTUALLY HAPPENED.”

Which is the reason why President Trump took to Twitter in a series of tweets to remind his supporters who Sen. Blumenthal is, after the senator appearing on CNN was asked about North Korea, the White House leaks and what he referenced as the "potential collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Stating: "That investigation must be pursued!"

This immediately drew a response from the Commander-in-Chief, tweeting; “Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist”!

Obviously, anyone can misspeak regarding dates and time, and no doubt anyone wearing the uniform during that pivotal moment in our nation’s history can make a mistake in that Blumenthal did serve in the Marine Corps Reserves for six years during the height of the Vietnam War, however, he served state-side.

Which makes his claim all the more egregious when he doubled down claiming in front of a group of veterans in 2008 and said; "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam."

“STOLEN VALOR” is an abhorrent act that should never be tolerated!

Tell us in the comments below if you think the penalty for someone impersonating an active duty military individual should be the same as someone impersonating a police officer?
