He only gets excited when he's throwing other people's metal over the WH fence.
The story that John Kerry supposedly threw away his Vietnam medals in protest of the war but in fact now proudly displays those medals on his Senate office wall seems to resurface every couple of months. The latest flap is courtesy ABC News:
'I Saw You'
Gibson said he was there 33 years ago when Kerry threw medals over the fence. "I saw you throw medals over the fence, and we didn't find out until later [interrupted] that those were someone else's medals," Gibson said.
Kerry, not listening to the end of Gibson's statement, said: "Charlie, Charlie, you're wrong. That is not what happened. I threw my ribbons across. And all you have to do ..."
Gibson tried to clarify that Kerry threw someone else's medals over the fence, but Kerry would not give him an opportunity.
Kerry eventually clarified that he did throw two medals (not his) over the fence at the request of two veterans.
