Biden: pin a medal on Vindman and not on Rush Limbaugh

dublinbay z6 (KS)

You tell them, Joe!

---------------------------------

"Joe Biden had a strong moment during Friday’s Democratic presidential debate when he called on the audience to “stand and give Col. Vindman a show of how much we supported him.”

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was dismissed from his post on the National Security Council by President Trump on Friday. He angered President Trump with his testimony in the impeachment inquiry, and Biden singled him out during the debate, comparing his service to the nation with that of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Trump awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom during his State of the Union speech.

Col. Vindman got thrown out of the White House,” the former vice president said during the debate in Manchester, N.H., adding that Trump “should be pinning a medal on Vindman and not on Rush Limbaugh. And I think that what we should be doing now, we should all stand and give Col. Vindman a show of how much we supported him. Stand up and clap for Vindman!”

The audience rose to its feet and applauded."

The Medal of Freedom has now been permanently tarnished for all future recipients.

Yes, great line from Joe.

I can't wait until the next SOTU when the Democratic president presents Rachel Maddow with the Medal of Freedom.

And hate monger shock jock Limbaugh deserved a medal? That Trump did that just to upset people just because he could. He is the most powerful Troll on the planet. He will be getting back at never Trumpers with a vengeance we haven't totally witnessed yet until he is removed at the end of his term.

Dump Trump 2020

One twitter I read: Nancy ripped up a piece of paper, Trump awarded a medal to a racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, conspiracy theorist.

Nope, but you should be sorry, you abused my line of truth and tossed in Obama for BS effect.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom should have been award to Charles McGee who served his country with honor, but the republicans luv them some celebrities, they put two in the people's house. One with alzheimers and the other one probably close behind him. So the trump picked a shock jock instead of a veteran to give it to.

He probably wants one for himself, after all he didn't get an STD (^_^)

Lots of lies seems more appropriate for some LOLs.

Nasty retorts from the regs. No surprise. But no reason to show disdain for LTC Vindman, other than blind cultism. All emotion. No thought.

None of us know anything about Vindman other than what the MSM has spoon fed to us. However, the men who actually trained and served with Vindman have plenty of disdain for the man.

I had to look this up. No wonder that helicopter was hovering in Venice for what seemed to be an hour last night -- west and south of me, not circling, just stationary in the sky.

RIP Orson Bean

Vindman still had his moment in the sun when he stood up for what he believed in.

To be admired!

There was no reason for Vindman to have been escorted out with security except to humiliate a decorated military man.

"There was no reason for Vindman to have been escorted out with security except to humiliate a decorated military man."

Do you have a resource where that information can be confirmed?

Fired people get escorted out of buildings all the time for variety of reasons. I would like to understand how Vindman's treatment varied from that of others who worked in the same building. Are some people allowed to leave on their own schedule?

Being fired for telling the truth under oath before congress is not a good reason to get fired. Trump should insist that Vindman be held accountable if he thinks he lied under oath, but he knows Vindman was telling the truth so vengeance is his only way of getting back at him for doing his duty.

Kinda like the Nobel Peace Prize.

Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize -- what could be more meaningless than that.
