(Liberty Bell) – You know what’s more disgusting than spreading unsubstantiated garbage about the President of the United States disparaging fallen war heroes?
Exploiting living war heroes to further this baseless slander.
Wounded Iraq war hero Bobby Henline has slammed leftists as “scum” for using his image to promote the unverified, anonymously-sourced apparent brazen lie that President Trump had called fallen WWI heroes “losers.”
A retired Army staff sergeant and Purple Heart recipient, Henline served four tours in Iraq and suffered severe burns on over 40% of his body during a roadside bombing during one of his deployments.
A leftist outlet used his photo to capitalize on the salacious rumor of Trump’s 2018 comments published by The Atlantic last week (and refuted by several of Trump’s associates and even those he has had friction with, like John Bolton and General Kelly).
“He didn’t call me a loser, so this has got to stop. Stop using my image! That’s my face. I’m here to tell you, it’s not true,” Henline declared.

He specifically called out Occupy Democrats, who used his photo without his permission to push this lie.
“These idiots used my photo without my permission,” Henline said. “They took advantage of a wounded veteran! That’s what they did. They’re out there posting this stuff all over Facebook, using my image. I’m done. You’re low lives. You’re scum! Take it down.”

It’s almost laughable that this is the lie the left would try to push about Trump, who has gone above and beyond to show his obviously genuine appreciation for the troops. He has long been credited with being a breath of fresh air to our men and women in uniform after eight years of Obama.
As BizPac Review explains:
The left-wing Atlantic magazine claimed that in 2018, Trump had mocked fallen U.S. troops in World War I France as “losers” and “suckers” and that he had canceled a visit to a military cemetery because he didn’t want to get hair wet.
The majority owner of the Atlantic is Biden supporter Laurene Powell Jobs (Steve Jobs’ widow). This year, Laurene donated more than $500,000 to Biden’s campaign.
A dozen current and former Trump administration officials went on the record to rubbish the claims.
Even former National Security Advisor John Bolton — a vocal Trump critic — shot down the tabloid gossip. Bolton said if it had been true, he would have included that juicy anecdote in his anti-Trump book.
Meanwhile, check out how Joe Biden responded to an Amerian veteran who called him out back in March:
“My friends are dead because of your policies!” the Air Force veteran said to Biden during a campaign event in Oakland. “We are wondering why we should vote for someone who voted for a war and enabled a war that killed thousands of our brothers and sisters? Their blood is on your hands!”
Wow, an Air Force vet calls Biden out for voting for the Iraq War

After briefly appearing to try to bicker with the veteran, Biden, who is notorious for getting angry at voters who challenge him in the slightest, turned his back on this hero.
