Track Palin’s arrest for domestic violence is all Barack Obama’s fault – or that’s what Sarah Palin and Donald Trump think. Sarah said the president’s lack of ‘respect’ for veterans with PTSD led to Track’s arrest and Donald said is it’s perfectly reasonable to blame Obama!
Track Palin, 26, would not have been busted for allegedly threatening his girlfriend with an AR-15 assault rifle if President Barack Obama, 54, cared about veterans, according to his mother, former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, 51. Sarah’s putting the blame on Barack for Track’s problems and current Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, 69, agrees with her!
Sarah’s GOP BFF weighed in on her son’s arrest on Jan. 20, according to Us Weekly. When CNN’s Don Lemon asked if it was fair to link the president with Track’s “issues,” Donald said “Oh, I think so. Look, everything starts at the top. He’s the president. And I think you can certainly do that.”
“And all you have to do is look at the Veterans Administration, and look at the bad, the horrible care our vets get,” Donald added. “One of the many things I’m going to do is I’m going to straighten that mess out.”
During a Jan. 20 Donald Trump rally, Sarah first suggested that when Track allegedly got drunk and beat up his 22-year-old girlfriend, he was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from his 2008 deployment to Iraq, according to NBC News. When addressing the “elephant in the room,” Sarah said, “My son, like so many others — they come back a bit different.”
“They come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country. And that starts from the top,” Sarah said, adding “[T]he question though it comes from our own president, when they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through.”
However, the head of a veteran’s organization said that Sarah and Donald’s accusations are totally wrong. “It’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD,” Paul Rieckhoff, head of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, told NBC News. “PTSD is a very serious problem, a complicated mental health injury and I would be extremely reluctant to blame any one person in particular.”
Paul encouraged Sarah to “resist the urge to politicize” her son’s condition, but sees her new relationship with Donald to “sound the alarm about PTSD” and get the country’s veterans the help they desperately need.
