Benghazi Survivor Shuts Up Internet Troll After Trump Is Accused of Being Anti-Military
When a loudmouth liberal on Twitter tried on New Year’s Eve to accuse President Donald Trump of cutting our military veterans’ benefits and raising their taxes, a survivor of the 2012 Benghazi attack set the liberal straight, pronto.
“Hillary and Obama left me, my team and 30 other Americans to die soooo …. nice try though sh-t show,” tweeted back U.S. Army Ranger Kris “Tanto” Paronto.
Take a look:
Paronto directed his fierce reply to a Twitter user named “Hateful Hairdresser,” who earlier that afternoon had sent a tweet to former MLB player Curt Schilling claiming, “Trump cut their benefits and raised their taxes. Good job.”
The tweet to Schilling was itself a reply to a tweet the former MLB player had sent earlier to Paronto wishing him and his “fallen brothers” a heartfelt “God Bless you”:
The Independent Journal Review suspects it was the “#MAGA” in Schilling’s tweet that triggered a nasty response from “Hateful Hairdresser.”
But while Paronto’s scathing reply was noteworthy, it wasn’t the only one.
Look: (WARNING: Some tweets include profanity)
Nice try, though, “Hateful Hairdresser.”
Regarding Paronto’s own statement: While it’s true that four Americans died during the 2012 assault on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, including American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, then-President Barack Obama’s Defense Department was adamant that there had been nothing it could have done to prevent the deaths of Stevens, State Department information officer Sean Smith, and security contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty.
However, the final report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, published in June 2016, concluded Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could have done more.
“The committee is proud to have been able to tell the story of the ingenuity and bravery displayed by our nation’s heroes in Benghazi, who banded together to save one another, when no other help was ever on the way,” chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy said at the time of the report’s release, according to The Washington Times.
Moreover, following what appeared to be the Obama administration’s failure to react quickly enough to the Benghazi attack, officials in the government spun a web of lies for the American public.
“Obama administration officials, including the Secretary of State, learned almost in real time that the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack,” a statement from Rep. Jim Jordan included in the select committee’s report read.
“Rather than tell the American people the truth, the administration told one story privately and a different story publicly,” the statement continued.
Obama and Clinton lied, stonewalled and potentially cost four Americans their lives. Meanwhile, however, loudmouth liberals like “Hateful Hairdresser” remain obsessed with Trump and his allegedly very evil crime of lowering every American’s taxes.
