“It is amazing and appalling that Republicans are going after veteran military officers,” said former Netflix talk show host and White Privilege star Chelsea Handler. “How many people have to come forward for Republicans to stop defending the man who pretended he had bone spurs in favor of all the men and women who actually serve our country every day?”

Indeed, during the hearing, Lt. Col. Vindman said President Trump was “well within his right” to ask Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during a now-infamous July 25 telephone call, to use his country’s resources to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, as it regards to potential corruption.

So the official White House twitter account is now just a total freak show too. It’s all so depressing. It’s like getting idiotic tweets from the Lincoln memorial. https://t.co/BneAqmk81d

Anyone else disgusted by @DevinNunes and want to see him gone? Take your anger and do something positive with it. Follow his opponent @PhilArballo2020 on Twitter, and chip in $3 to his election campaign. We the People have the power to change this.
