Trump-endorsed candidate claims that he deployed to Afghanistan while serving in the Air Force. National Archives: "Nope. Not even close"

WASHINGTON (AP) — Campaigning for a northwestern Ohio congressional seat, Republican J.R. Majewski presents himself as an Air Force combat veteran who deployed to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, once describing “tough” conditions including a lack of running water that forced him to go more than 40 days without a shower.

Military documents obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request tell a different story.

They indicate Majewski never deployed to Afghanistan but instead completed a six-month stint helping to load planes at an air base in Qatar, a longtime U.S. ally that is a safe distance from the fighting.

So many Republicans lie just like their God Trump--so many that it must now be assumed they are lying about everything unless it can be verified by a third party.
Majewski’s account of his time in the military is just one aspect of his biography that is suspect. His post-military career has been defined by exaggerations, conspiracy theories, talk of violent action against the U.S. government and occasional financial duress.

It seems that the main qualification for being a Repub politician today is that the person must be a bald-faced liar who has no personal integrity or honor. It's like they are another species or even from another planet.

truth means nothing to so many repubs and they're too stupid to realize they'll be found out
Stolen valor is a federal offense.
Stolen valor criminals are despicable human beings.
@Vin53 YES.
Right wingers are pathological liars? Say it ain't so!

@markansas The last vestige of it is on display in the Smithsonian, next to a stuffed Dodo & passenger pigeon, just across from the new display for "Moderate Republicans".

Yet these are the same people who scorned genuine American war heroes. Unbelievable!
@novaguy2u 👆👆👆
Chronic misrepresentation and lies seems to be a common trait.

Do some research on Blumenthal from CN. He was/is a Democrat and "misled" about serving in Vietnam.

@ProfessorPlum77 they dont want to know anything like that😁
So hey, if your boy were to come out with this statement on live tv, would that possibly change your mind?

Virgo79 · 61-69, M
@Vin53 change my mind about what?
Virgo79 · 61-69, M
@Vin53 ofcourse you dont.

Dont doubt what i know😉
So if you were to define your current intoxicated state, for measure, where would you place yourself on the scale from 1 to 10

@Vin53 im not currently intoxicated, i think youre the drunk, youre the one that cant stay on subject.
Ok, then what IS the subject of defending stolen valor pos republicans who flout trump's victory in 2020?

Fucking liar. And to lie about service and make up that shit.
Virgo79 · 61-69, M
That makes Hillary's story inferior, and we wont mention the great john kerry.
Nobody but you knows what that means and I'm skeptical you even do.

@Vin53 Although the semantics of the sentence are opaque, it's clearly an attempt at a strawman fallacy, LOL!!!
