Clinton Spokesman Jesse Lehrich Tells Trump to ‘Go F**k Yourself’

Jesse Lehrich, the foreign policy spokesman for Hillary Clinton, told Donald Trump to “go f**k yourself” after Trump suggested that if he was president during the Iraq War, Captain Humayun Khan would not have been killed. Trump made the comment during the second presidential debate with Clinton.

Lehrich did not delete the tweet, but he has apologized for the “clearly inappropriate nature and language of this personal tweet.”

Trump got into a feud with the Muslim soldier’s parents during the summer after they spoke at the Democratic National Convention. During the debate, Trump agreed that their son, who died in the Iraq War, was an American hero. However, he said that if he was president during the Iraq War, Khan would never have been killed.

Lehrich also tweeted that an “apolitical friend” called Trump a “f***ing toddler.”

Lehrich serves the Clinton campaign as a foreign policy spokesman. In June 2015, The New York Times reported that he first worked as an unpaid volunteer for Clinton and opened a headquarters for her in Brooklyn. He previously worked for the Democratic super-PAC American Bridge, The Hill reported in 2015.

After apologizing for his use of the f-word, Lehrich stopped live-tweeting the debate.

  1. So is he a political lackey some academic who couldn’t step up and basically a coward or does he have some real overseas experience.

  2. This dude probably beats off thinking about Donald Trump being his daddy. People who sit around and “tweet” about this crap were obvious losers when they were children. Anyone who defends him is a loser in my book too and deserve anything negative that’s ever been said about you also.

  3. So Jesse, why don’t you show some class and just step down from your position with the Clinton organization. If you were a republican and made comments like that every news Chanel on air would be marching outside the GOP headquarters with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton telling us how racist the comments are.

    • Vice President Dick Cheney said the same exact thing to Senator Patrick Lehey and was the toast of the Republican party. Afterwards, Cheney said: “It made me feel good saying it.”

  4. Jesse, great tweet don’t apologize. I am not a Trump or Hillary fan but as a veteran, he pissed me off too. Everyone can make of this what they want, he was out of line. He keeps insulting that poor family.

    • you are not a veteran. well, maybe a veteran liar. No member of the military will be voting for this incompetent old bag who has, and will, put military lives in jeapordy and is already responsible for many military and non military deaths.

    As we’ve said before, as Secretary, [Hillary Clinton ] followed the letter and the spirit of the law. She has provided all of her work email to the State Department and has asked the State Department to release them publicly as soon as possible.

    …We’ve been over this, and over this, and over this again. She had an email account. She used that email account to correspond with over 100 people inside the State Department, outside the State Department, likely even some Republicans. This was not a secret being kept, it was an email address.

    …this is more of the same partisan charade by the Republicans, the same Republicans who are turning to this because they didn’t find any smoking gun on Benghazi.

    …If asked about the mention in the story about violating the rules in the foreign affairs manual:

    Let’s remember something, she wasn’t the first Secretary of State to use a private email account. But she was the first and only former Secretary to turn hers over to State, and certainly the first to ask for them all to be released to the public.

    She conducted herself according the letter and the spirit of the rule. And funny enough, as recently as 6 weeks ago the Department was asking employees to use their private accounts because their servers were down.

    If pressed on whether Hillary Clinton gets to play by her own set of rules:

    Well I’ll tell you this, she has asked the State Department to turn over all 55,000 pages of her emails, and it’s still not enough. So I’d say that the Republicans try and hold her to a different standard because they are afraid of what she has to offer as a candidate.
