- Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois didn’t hesitate to hit back Thursday at Republican Rep. Doug Collins, who earlier accused Democrats of being “in love with terrorists.”
- “I left parts of my body behind fighting terrorists in Iraq,” Duckworth, who was a lieutenant colonel in the US Army, said in response to Collins.
- Duckworth was a combat veteran in the Iraq War and lost both her legs and some movement in her right arm as a result of her injuries while serving overseas.
- Her comments came after Collins, as well as other Republicans, baselessly accused Democrats of mourning the death of Iran’s Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated after President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike against him last week.
