Combat wounded veteran makes a plea for politicos to stop using his image in political ads


A US Army veteran who has long been one of the faces for wounded veterans in America is calling out those who use his likeness.

Stand-up comedian and two-time war veteran Bobby Henline took to social media in an attempt to set the record straight concerning an attempt at a political meme that was created, insinuating that he was upset with the Commander in Chief.

The controversy surrounds the allegation -made by “anonymous sources” who spoke with The Atlantic- that claimed President Donald Trump referred to the fallen veterans of World War One as “losers,” a claim that has been highly disputed.

The image, which was shared by Paula Larson DeSpirito to the “MSNBC Rachel Maddow Fan Group” on Facebook, was directly addressed by Henline in a video shared to social media.

“That’s my face,” he said, pointing to the screen. “I’m here to tell ya, not true.”

Henline went on to say that whatever allegations were made, he never heard President Trump refer to him as a “loser.”

“I don’t know what Trump said, but I’m sure he didn’t call me a loser,” he said. “I didn’t hear him call me a loser, so this has got to stop. Stop using my image.”

“Stop using me for your propaganda,” he said. “For your agenda.”

Henline expressed his willingness to speak on the matter.

“Fox News, somebody, call me,” he said. “Let’s get this out there on a bigger platform so people would know not to use me, not to put a face to whatever this is they think he said.”

A veteran of both the Persian Gulf and Iraq War, Henline was seriously wounded during his 3rd tour in Iraq.
