Rep. Elijah Cummings responded to Fox News' Allen West's despicable attacks on Rep. Tammy Duckworth during an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.

Mitchell: One other question, Allen West, a former member of Congress and now a memeber of Fox News contributor has questioned the loyalty of Tammy Duckworth, who's one of the members of this committee. he said, he wonders where her loyalties lie. I just wanna get your response. Tammy Duckworth , a double amputee who served in Iraq...

Cummings: You know, it doesn't even deserve a response. He should be ashamed of himself and I'll make that very clear and if I see him I'll tell him that....And sometimes Andrea, she comes in the hearing room in a wheel chair and struggling, struggling just to get to her seat and somebody to have the audacity to say something like that upsets me to the nth degree.

To Conservatives, you're only a hero or a loyal American in the armed services if you vote Republican.
