Gardner Dodges Questions, Then Defends Trump’s Atrocious Attacks On Veterans & Fallen Soldiers on Fox News
“A spokeswoman for Gardner didn’t respond to a request for comment from Gardner”
Gardner: “Well, look, I’m not going to comment on anonymous sources, of the veracity of those sources”
Denver, CO – After multiple news outlets confirmed President Trump’s atrocious attacks on our veterans and fallen troops — disparaging those lost in combat as “losers” and “suckers,” continuing attacks on the late Senator John McCain, and refusing to visit a military cemetery because he did not believe it was important to honor our fallen heroes — Senator Cory Gardner refused to comment when asked by Colorado Politics and then went on Trump’s favorite network Fox News to attack the media and defend the president’s vile remarks.
In stark contrast, Former Army Ranger Congressman Jason Crow, Marine veteran Senate President Leroy Garcia, and John Hickenlooper all swiftly condemned the atrocious attacks on our brave veterans. Hickenlooper called out Gardner’s silence, saying, “Colorado is home to nearly 50,000 military families, yet time and time again Senator Cory Gardner has stood idly by while Trump denigrates our military. He said nothing when Trump raided Peterson Air Force Base for his border wall. And he’s silent now. Cory Gardner’s cowardly silence is deafening.”
Gardner is already in hot water with our brave service men and women. Last month veterans protested outside his office demanding he get back to work and restore emergency unemployment insurance and fund state and local governments.
Now he’s choosing to side with Trump over our troops.
