After endorsing Trump and giving perpetually drunken morons the opportunity to make another terrible life decision, Mama Grizzly is doing everything she can to make excuses for her cubs. I’m referring to Track Palin, the eldest son of Sarah’s freak show clan. Track was arrested after allegedly battering his girlfriend and waving around an AR-15 during a drunken escapade.
Now, any decent mother with a brain and soul would be utterly ashamed of her son’s criminal behavior. However, Sarah has neither and decided to instead blame President Obama for her son’s war PTSD. Nevermind the fact that Republicans have consistently voted against key veteran’s bills, or that it was actually President Obama who vetoed a Republican bill that sought to cut vets benefits.
Facts are for terrorists!
Looking to set the record straight and let this vile woman know what PTSD actually is, Paul Rieckhoff, the head of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America(IAVA), schooled Palin on NBC News.
It’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD, said Paul Rieckhoff, who heads Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). PTSD is a very serious problem, a complicated mental health injury and I would be extremely reluctant to blame any one person in particular.
Since Rieckhoff’s group is largely non-partisan and unlike Palin, he hoped to avoid the crass politicization of PTSD. Instead, he used the speaking opportunity to raise awareness for this debilitating mental condition that affects roughly 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan vets.
This is a great opportunity for Sarah Palin to sound the alarm about PTSD, he said. Now that she has endorsed Mr. Trump, I would encourage her to talk with him about it. Mr. Trump’s campaign is pretty light on specifics about what he would do for veterans.
I wouldn’t hold my breath, Mr. Rieckhoff. You may have taken a classy approach and genuinely care about your fellow vets, but all Palin and Trump care about is being on television as much as possible.
