Allen West Did Not Mince Words When Pressed About Melania Trump’s Speech [Video]

As Reported by the Washington Examiner. Former Congressman Allen West expressed indifference over the issue dominating day two of the Republican National Convention: potential plagiarism in Melania Trump’s Monday night speech.

“I don’t give a damn. I really don’t,” West said in a Facebook Live interview with the Washington Examiner. “I’m concerned about the fact that we have aviation maintenance crews that are out and they’re going through boneyards and going throw museums trying to scavenge parts to keep our aircraft flying. I’m concerned about Islamic jihadism. I’m concerned about the unemployment rate, the growing debt and the deficit. … I don’t really give a doggone about her speech.”

    The libs like to scatter thumb tacks on the trail in order to distract you from the goal of removing B’Ob and incarcerating Shrillary….

    Mr.West…reasonable people concur with your opinion!
    America Is On Fire in so many areas and a speech with certain words is No concern in my view!

    Absolutely. Let’s concentrate on what is important. Trumps alleged plagiarism will mean nothing when jihadists are cutting our heads off.

    It is purely shameful that our military would have to scrounge for parts to stay operational and more so since they would be down to cruising museums to get them.

  • John H. Holliday D.D.S.

    Hopefully President Donald Trump will ask Lt Colonel Allen West to accept the appointment to be the next Secretary Of Defense of the United States in a Trump Administration.

    Mahalo, Lieutenant Colonel, for all you share with “We The People” and keeping us informed, moment by moment. Thanks again!

    If Trump has any sense he will put Col. West on his short list for a Cabinet spot. next to newt, Allen has a grip on History that amazes me to this day, No Notes just fact after fact off the top of his head. “If you do not Study History you are doomed to repeating the same mistakes again”. Shame Cruz’s ego got in his way on the way to having a future. I was thinking Supreme Court. Now I’m not sure he has fidelity to anything but Cruz.
