President Trump mocks Lt. Col Vindman, a witness in the impeachment inquiry, for wearing military uniform

<b>President Trump mocks Lt. Col Vindman, a witness in the impeachment inquiry, for wearing military uniform</b>Donald Trump has mocked witnesses at the impeachment hearings – while two of them were testifying – claiming he does not know them and making fun of their clothing.The president, speaking to the media ahead of a cabinet meeting, was asked about Lt Col Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council expert
Not surprised that these words came out of the mouth of Cadet-Bone-Spurs aka the Traitor-In-Chief. The Iraq War veteran was wearing his military uniform at the hearing and at one point insisted on being addressed as Lt Col Vindman after Republican congressman Devin Nunes called him Mr Vindman. Mr Trump, appearing in public for the first time since an unscheduled medical visit at the weekend, mispronounced the Iraq War veteran's name and mocked him for wearing his uniform.  He said: "I don't know him. I don't know, as he says, the 'lieutenant colonel'. I understand that somebody had the misfortune of calling him 'Mr' and he corrected them. "I never saw the man. I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vind-e-man at all." Not only Trump, but Republicans in Congress have made a big fuss over Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman wearing his military uniform on Capitol Hill during the impeachment inquiry as well. But Vindman is an active duty Army officer and is following regulations by wearing his uniform to impeachment hearings. Trump and his GOP allies have zeroed in on the uniform to suggest Vindman is being performative, which he vehemently denies."The uniform I wear today is that of the United States Army," Vindman, an Iraq War combat veteran, said on Tuesday. "We do not serve any political party. We serve the nation."
