The army veterinarian claims he is used as a “prop” in anti-Trump propaganda.
A U.S. Army veteran who completed four tours of Iraq and was seriously injured has cracked down on his image used on social media.
The veteran claims his photo will be used to promote a story in The Atlantic magazine about President Trump that the vet believes is fake and that was made up by Democrats for political reasons.
“I’m just so irritated that they put my image up there because now it looks like the president called me a loser,” Bobby Henline told Fox News, referring to comments made by the president Regarding wounded veterans, this was attributed to selling something they believe in for their agenda. It’s not fair to sit down [veterans] as props in the middle of it all. “
Last week, The Atlantic released a story in which anonymous sources claimed President Trump made derogatory remarks about fallen US soldiers and veterans, calling them “fools” and “losers” in 2018.
Henline is the only survivor of an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion in Iraq that killed four US soldiers. He’s now using his comedy act to spread positivity about veterans problems.
Henline had never commented on the history of the Atlantic or Trump’s alleged remarks about veterans and was outraged that his image was being used to tear down Trump and help Democrat Joe Biden, he said.
“Carry on with what you have with facts,” said Henline. “If you don’t have the power to win on your own that you have to tear down your opponent, there is a problem.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

The ACLU official, angry at the university for accepting Nick Sandmann, calls it a “stain” on the school: report
An American Civil Liberties Union official in Kentucky was furious over the weekend when he learned that Transylvania University had accepted Nicholas Sandmann as a student and called the move a “stain” on the institution.
Sandman made headlines in January 2019 when a Native American activist stood in front of the teenager and started singing in his face during a pro-life rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC
Sandman, who was wearing a MAGA hat at the time and is a supporter of President Trump, stood his ground and smiled as the man continued to speak on his face.
“Does anyone else think Transylvania University is a little uncomfortable accepting Nick Sandman? [sic]? I’m sure it’s a defense for both sides, but it pretty much goes against their mission and another case where there really aren’t any equal sides for a problem, “ACLU’s Samuel Crankshaw wrote in a since-removed Facebook post National Verification.
In the aftermath of the DC confrontation, outlets such as CNN and The Washington Post were accused of deliberately identifying Sandmann – and his fellow Covington Catholic High School classmates – as the primary assailants with misleading coverage. Both branches eventually reached a legal settlement with Sandmann after he sued them for $ 250 million. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine trial suspended due to suspected adverse effects in UK participants
Pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca will postpone an experimental coronavirus vaccine study in the US after a participant in the UK was exposed to an apparent serious side effect, according to a report.
The Anglo-Swedish company’s “standard screening process triggered a vaccination break to allow verification of safety data,” said an AstraZeneca spokesman.
The break is “a routine action that must be performed whenever any of the studies has a potentially unexplained disease while it is being investigated to ensure that the integrity of the studies is maintained.”
AstraZeneca is working to “expedite the review of each event to minimize any potential impact on the test schedule”.
One suspected serious side effect includes symptoms requiring hospitalization, life-threatening illness, and even death. The side effect is believed to have occurred in the UK phase 2/3 trial. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
