So the "uninspired" "weak" #TammyDuckworth "lucked her way into higher office," (defeating TWO #GOP incumbents).

Duckworth spent 22yrs in the military & left both legs in Iraq after her helicopter was shot down.

But white dude says she was an affirmative action hire.🤔
The dismissive "Consider the source" comment about Duckworth ignores her two careers of service to America, the ground she has broken for women, WOC, #disabled and the work required.

The assertion it's "infantalizing" to cite her military service ignores all her hard work.
Acts of heroism are actually few. One doesn't fall into them, one chooses them.
#TammyDuckworth chose to be heroic in Iraq and chose to fight for vulnerable Americans in Congress.

Challenge her positions if she's not left enough for you, but don't invalidate her achievements.
