Yes, you read that right.
On Friday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal called Donald Trump an “unindicted co-conspirator” (which he is) during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews:
“Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, independent of the special counsel investigation, believe that Donald Trump committed a felony that enabled him or at least helped him to become president,” said Blumenthal. “Covering up those payments is part of what was done, part of the conspiracy in which Donald Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator.”
Today, apparently in response, Trump tweeted this:
Ha ha ha ha ha. Very witty, Voltaire. But I always assumed “Da Nang Dick” was a venereal disease you picked up during your own personal Vietnam.
Of course, Blumenthal has been harshly criticized for appearing to inflate his role during the Vietnam War. But he did, in fact, serve in the military, unlike Trump, who famously sought and received five deferments, the last for mysterious bone spurs.
Plus, Trump lies 800 times a day (estimated), so who the fuck does he think he is calling out someone else for (appearing to) exaggerate his valor?
I assume we’re not done seeing cunning bons mots like “the Dick” and “Adam Schitt” in Trump’s official presidential dispatches to an adoring populace so enthralled by his singular wit.
Can’t wait for the next one, Li’l Donny! Hope it involves boom-booms or pee-pees. That’s your wheelhouse, my man.
