After being called a “coward” by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) yesterday, and portrayed as the Cowardly Lion, Iraq War vet and congressional candidate Lee Zeldin responded in the way you would expect – ripping the DCCC and their Press Secretary Marc Brumer to absolute shreds.

Zeldin went on Fox & Friends this morning to respond to the controversy and called Brumer “a liberal democrat hack, hiding behind his twitter account, stuffing his face with cheese doodles.”

And in case you missed it, here was the tweet sent out by Marc Brumer:

Zeldin is of course, an Iraq War veteran, serving as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne.  The 82nd Airborne Division is an active airborne infantry division of the United States Army specializing in parachute landing operations.  It is considered the nation’s premier Airborne infantry division.
