Laura Ingraham tore Joe Biden apart for his response to President Trump's comments belittling our fallen soldiers Tuesday, which have been proven false.
The alleged comments accompany the image of a wounded U.S. veteran that is being used by the Democrats for political gain.
Bobby Henline, the Iraq War veteran who did four tours, said, "I'm just so irritated that they put my image up there because now it looks like the president called me a loser. And they're using that to sell something that they believe in for their agenda. It's not fair to put us [veterans] as props in the middle of all that."
Ingraham accuses the former vice president of trying to "capitalize" on the disputed comments to "muddy the waters" on his foreign policy record.
"The Ingraham Angle" host recalled an interview from March with MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell in which Biden claims he voted for the war in Iraq in order to "try to prevent a war from happening."
"It is completely false. And anyone who has any momentary memory of what was happening at the time in 2002 and 2003 knows that," said Ingraham. "This is why Biden has sought to capitalize on the now-debunked Atlantic magazine smear against the president, despite the fact that the most incendiary claims in that piece have been disavowed by at least 21 current or former administration sources on the record."
Ingraham explains Biden's hopes of driving a wedge between Trump and the military because it is a key group of voters that has otherwise been loyal to the president. She then cited a 1998 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in which Biden insists that the only way to solve the problem of Iraq's program of weapons of mass destruction was to "require guys... in uniform to be back on foot, in the desert taking the son of a -- taking Saddam [Hussein] down."
"Biden claims that Donald Trump has disrespected the troops?" she asked. "A pathetic drive-by smear and a desperate attempt to cover up his own lies about his own history of rubber-stamping whatever the pro-interventionist types wanted."
The host points out that "the impact of the wars" Biden supported back then were not mentioned at this year's Democratic National Convention.
Is Biden changing his rhetoric or has his mind so badly deteriorated that he really doesn't remember supporting a war that wounded and killed tens of thousands of American soldiers.
