Trump says he knows every one of them and he could tell you things about every one of them. Trump starts off again by mocking “Da Nang Blumenthal” for lying about his Vietnam service for 15 years. “I thought he was a great war hero,” Trump says. “Then it turns out, he was never in Vietnam.” He mocks Blumenthal for demanding the truth after lying about his Vietnam service and crying about it “like a baby” when they caught him on his Vietnam lies. “When Jimmy Swaggart tried, it was nothing compared to Da Nang Richard,” Trump says.
