Newly tabulated votes reveal that Joe Biden got 80% of the military and overseas votes in Maine, a remarkable feat considering the military’s traditional penchant for voting Republican. Then again, Donald Trump has repeatedly insulted the military, and dodged the draft five times himself. He cited “bone spurs” but then turned around and participated in athletics in college.
Even with his unpatriotic villainy, Trump had the gall to tweet “AMERICA FIRST!” tonight. Congressman Ted Lieu wasn’t having it. He fired back at Trump with this:
“Dear Donald Trump: I agree with you that we should put America first. That’s one reason I served on active duty. However, you didn’t put America first. You put yourself and your friends first. That’s one reason the American people fired you. Conceded yet?”
