  • The presidential campaign between Trump and DeSantis has been heated.

  • On Saturday, a Trump spokeswoman slammed DeSantis for his political ambitions.

  • She also dragged Pete Buttigieg into the crosshairs while using a photo from his military service.

A spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump appeared to mock Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s military service during a spat with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

On Saturday, Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington tweeted a clip of her criticizing DeSantis’ political ambitions.

“Ron ‘Dee-Santis’ has run for 4 different offices over the past 7 years. He’s not someone who’s there for the country, he’s someone who’s there for himself”, said Harrington in a Tweeter.

In response, the DeSantis War Room Twitter account responded with footage of the DeSantis’ service time. DeSantis was deployed to Iraq in 2007, the Tampa Bay Times reported. The response may have been a swipe at Trump, who avoided military recruitment during the Vietnam War.

Harrington fired back, responding with a photo of Buttigieg in his army uniform. Buttigieg was in the U.S. Navy Reserve from 2009 and was honorably discharged in 2017. After being elected mayor of South Bend, Indiana, he took a seven-month leave of absence in 2014 to serve in Afghanistan.

The apparent attacks took place over Memorial Day weekend, and Twitter users took notice, criticizing Harrington for disparaging the DeSantis and Buttigieg service.

“Attacking anyone with a photo in their military uniform on Memorial Day weekend is pretty frustrating. Democrat or not,” one user said. replied.

“You call that winning? Attacking a good vet politician by posting a photo of a bad vet politician proves what exactly? writes another. “Most veterans are good Americans, it has nothing to do with political positions. Veterans can be right or wrong about political positions.”

The Trump and DeSantis campaigns, and the Department of Transportation, did not immediately return Insider’s emails seeking comment.
