Tears Alert! Blumenthal never claimed he was in Da Nang or was a war hero, just, falsely, that he was in Vietnam when he actually served in the reserves stateside - and he was never seen crying when he made his admission.
Trump’s lies about Blumenthal are among his Trumpiest lies. Blumenthal himself lied, or at least deceived, by saying he served in Vietnam; Trump could just hammer him with that truth; instead, he has lyingly invented a whole series of lies he falsely claims Blumenthal uttered.
There are a lot of cases like this — where Trump can’t even tell the truth when the truth is in his favour. Truth is rarely sufficient for him.
