Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) was not pleased to hear that Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) said that Democrats love terrorists just because they criticized Donald Trump’s decision to assassinate Iraqi general without consulting Congress.

Appearing on CNN, Duckworth did not hold back when calling out Collins.

CNN host Brianna Keilar noted during the interview that Collins had accused Democrats of being “in love with terrorists” because of their criticism over Trump’s Iran decision.

Duckworth was not happy with Collins’ remarks.

“I’m not going to justify that with a response,” Duckworth replied. “I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists. I don’t need to justify myself to anyone.”

The Illinois senator went on to says she was also “disgusted” with Collins for using Gold Star families as a political “pawn.”
