..... you can see a response to a question about military suicides in which Trump's attempt to pander to the crowd by complimenting them for being "strong" and able to "handle" the trauma of war goes badly awry.
Here is a transcript of his remarks:
When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat, they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over and you're strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can't handle it. And they see horror stories, they see events that you couldn't see in a movie, nobody would believe it, and we need a mental health help and medical and ... it's one of the things that I think is least addressed, and it's one of the the things I hear the most about when I go around and talk to the veterans. So we're going to have a very, very robust level of performance having to do with mental health. We are losing so many great people that could be taken care of if they had proper care.
I wonder if Trump removes his foot from his mouth just once is awhile to wipe the spit off of it and allow it to dry out a little.
Once again Trump has no fucking idea what he is talking about.
He just says words that he thinks his audience wants to hear.
However this time our veterans perhaps heard his remarks a little to well.
I guess my buddy who I deployed with, who suffered from PTSD, and who took his own life wasn't as strong as a roomful of Trump's supporters. https://t.co/iLb5V4PYs8— Corbin Reiff (@CorbinReiff) October 3, 2016
My BF served 15 yrs in USMC w/ 3 tours in Iraq. He has a service dog for PTSD & now works for USSS. #Trump has no grasp of that kind of life https://t.co/qkQOUBOK7L— LawBlarg‽ (@LawBlarg) October 3, 2016
And it made the usually cool as a cucumber Joe Biden just about lose his shit.@iava As a veteran of the USAF I cannot take the way this man speaks about any group of people including veterans. https://t.co/JTuxy9axyH— Kevin Cracknell (@kevin_cracknell) October 3, 2016
Well I guess we should all just sit back and wait for Sarah Palin, that "combat veteran's" mother (With a son who she also clams also suffers from PTSD.), tear Trump a new asshole for being an insensitive POS.
Yep, going to wait right here for that. Should be any minute now.
Yep, still waiting.
Probably taking awhile because you know she is all the way up in Alaska. Wait.....
