Jesse Lehrich is a foreign policy spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign; he also really, really wanted to let Donald Trump know how he felt about the Republican candidate’s outlandish claims during the second debate.
“Go fuck yourself,” Lehrich wrote on Twitter.
Lehrich’s tweet followed an exchange during the debate in which Trump argued he never would have sent troops into Iraq and, thus, under Trump’s leadership Army Capt. Humayun Khan –a Muslim-American who was killed in Iraq in June 2004 — would still be alive. You may recall that Khan and his family became fixtures of the 2016 election when his father, Khizr Khan passionately spoke at the Democratic National Convention to criticize Donald Trump’s proclivity to tell lies.
Clinton’s campaign was quick to condemn the tweet and Lehrich issued a public apology.
