He’s at it again. Donald Trump insinuated that war veterans tragically suffering from PTSD are ‘weak,’ and not surprisingly, it did NOT go over well. People took to Twitter and completely unleashed on the controversial presidential candidate, blasting him for his insensitive remarks. We have the details, here.
This is a new low, even for him. Donald Trump, 70, unleashed a spew of truly insensitive remarks in a room full of war veterans on Oct. 3, angering them and causing Twitter to explode in an uproar. “When people come back from war and combat and they see maybe what the people 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,” he said at the Retired American Warriors Pac. What’s even worse, is that what he said was in response to a discussion on how there are 22 veteran suicides each day. So upsetting.
In a not-so-surprising turn of events, Twitter users immediately blasted Donald. “Donald Trump called my grandfather weak,” one person wrote. “My grandfather who ran away from home to fight for our country weak.”
Donald trump called my grandfather weak. My grandfather who ran away from home to fight for our country weak.

Another tweeter angrily wrote, “The idea that Donald Trump thinks soldiers with PTSD and suicide are weak, man, how disgusting.” Similarly, someone else tweeted, “America, don’t vote for this scumbag!”

Another tweeter angrily wrote, “The idea that Donald Trump thinks soldiers with PTSD and suicide are weak, man, how disgusting.” Similarly, someone else tweeted, “America, don’t vote for this scumbag!” Still another was so upset, that she said she was speechless! “I’m not even gonna comment,” she wrote. One of our favorite tweets? Someone called Donald a loser! “They’re not losers, that’s you!”

Unfortunately, just a day prior Donald made another low blow when he suggested that his presidential opponent Hillary Clinton, 68, cheated on her husband, Bill Clinton, 70.“I don’t even think [Hillary’s] loyal to Bill, to tell you the truth,” he said on Oct. 2. One tweeter pretty much summed up how we all feel about Donald, writing, “How anyone continues to support him boggles my mind.”
