Trump hits Blumenthal for Gorsuch comment claims, Vietnam ‘lie’

Sen. Richard Blumenthal had for years boasted of having “served in Vietnam,” but had in actuality received five deferments, from 1965-1970, before he joined the Marine Reserve, The New York Times reported in 2010 when Blumenthal first ran for Senate. Blumenthal’s position in the Marine Reserve sent him to Washington state – thousands of miles from Asia – where he focused on local tasks, such as organizing a Toys for Tots drive. “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Blumenthal told a group of veterans in 2008, according to The Times.
