Allen West was at Trump’s speech today and what CNN is reporting is BULL***T 

Donald Trump isn’t just running against Hillary Clinton…he’s running against the progressive socialist machine, and that includes the Alinksy spin masters at CNN.

As Written By Allen B. West:

Ok, I was there, front row, attending the Donald Trump event with an audience of retired military leaders. The group was comprised of men and women who have served our nation in combat duty from World War II to the present. The event was originally supposed to be closed to the media, but the decision was made to open it up to the media. And of course, the media did not disappoint by spinning something out of nothing as the video shows of Mr. Trump speaking.

As reported by the Clinton News Network (CNN), “Donald Trump suggested Monday that American soldiers and veterans who commit suicide do so because they can’t handle the post-traumatic stress of war.

“When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat and they see things that maybe a lot of 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. They see horror stories, they see events you couldn’t see in a movie, nobody would believe it,” Trump said Monday, during a panel interview at the Retired American Warriors PAC, in Herndon, Virginia.

Trump’s surrogates said the Republican nominee’s comments were taken out of context, and blamed the media for construing his words. Trump adviser and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn accused the media reporting on Trump’s comments of, acting as ” the propaganda arm of Hillary Clinton.”

“Mr. Trump was highlighting the challenges veterans face when returning home after serving their country. He has always respected the service and sacrifice of our military men and women—proposing reforms to Veteran Affairs to adequately address the various issues veterans face when they return home,” FLynn said in a statement. Trump senior adviser Sarah Huckabee Sanders also said his comments were taken out of context, adding that he was the only candidate in the race placing a strong emphasis on veterans.

“There’s a reason that hundreds of military leaders around the country have endorsed and signed on and said in that room today to express their support for Donald Trump,” she told CNN’s John Berman. The number of suicides and other grave effects from PTSD in the military has skyrocketed, causing alarm both inside the military and in the public at large.”

Ok, let me explain something to these liberal progressive media chuckleheads, having served in several combat zones myself. Yes, there are those who are able to deal with the rigors and challenges of combat better than others. That has been the case throughout the history of combat. To try and insinuate anything out of Mr. Trump’s comments other than what he said at face value is just evidence that he did well at the event — and the objective to find some bit of dirt had to be met.

What abject liars and deceivers these people are! On my salute hand, trigger finger, I wear the #22Kill.com ring, that signifies the 22 veterans on average who each day are taking their lives. Mr. Trump stated the obvious: that the challenges cast upon these young men and women by a system that lets them down seems too great to overcome.

I was recently asked to call a veteran and talk to him because he had spoken to his dear friend about suicide. I simply confided to the veteran to be strong, courageous and that we needed him to stay in the fight, take a knee for a moment of rest, but ruck up and I prayed for him. I got an email back that the simple call had enabled him to turn the corner.

The Apostle Paul wrote about this in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NIV), “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

We all have times of weakness, of stress, and for some we dig deeper and rise above it – and some find it more difficult.

But for the despicable “journalists” of CNN to try and make something of Mr. Trump’s statement represents the lowest of lows.

Why didn’t this article refer to the deplorable situation in our Veterans Administration system, especially with the scandals of Barack Obama, and how these men and women are being let down at their most vulnerable moment?

Why didn’t this article refer to Hillary Clinton speaking of the VA crisis and scandal as some manufactured issue by the GOP? Obama and Clinton are the heartless souls who couldn’t care less about our veterans — but corrupt accomplices at the liberal progressive media will do anything to save Obama and Clinton, and create a chasm between veterans and Donald Trump.

I was there, and Trump’s statement didn’t elicit any response from us, the audience of retired combat veterans. We saw him as someone concerned about the horrific treatment of our men and women in uniform, the deplorable state of our military, and the insidious ideological social agenda being cast upon our military by a president who cannot define our enemy, militant Islamic terrorism. CNN has shown their bias, as if we thought anything different.

There are those who’ve raised their right hand to serve and protect this nation, and some do find it hard to cope with the aftermath of combat. And they need help, not the dismissal and disregard as Obama and Clinton have shown. Yes, there are those of us for whom combat does not affect, we find ….

    You expected anything different than that from CNN – the Clinton News Network? The Spinmeisters for Bill and Hillary, the Whitewashers of the Clinton’s dirty laundry?

  • dhd123

    I quit watching CNN years ago, just like MSNBC, garbage in garbage out.

  • David

    I watched Trump’s speech today, and I think the people at CNN (Clinton News Network) are all full of shiite.
    But I think the Real Problem is that None of CNN’s Reporters seem to be able to “Understand Plain English” … that also applies to all of the Main Stream News Networks … they are always making some “Lame Interpretation” of something that Trump says.
    Maybe it is just one of the Symptoms of the “Disease called Liberalism” … Liberal Democrats can’t seem to understand the First Amendment or Second Amendment either.

    i don’t trust CNN, and other communist News broadcasting

  • MaileO

    Karen R (facebk) you are right on, passengers on the Trump Train are going the whole route. We just get tougher when we hear media negative BS…actually, we are used to it, but not like this time around. Lately, Fox libs are coming out of the closet with a roar and at this point still better than the rest. Megyn Kelly is still carrying a grudge, don’t know why they still have her and her big mouth. It’s almost llike she is running the station now.

  • Bob

    a LOT of the main SLIMESTREAM MEDIA such as ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and FOCKS should have their broadcasting licenses REVOKED for LYING ALL THE TIME!!

    • Bertie

      FOX News and FOX Business channel have spent hours this morning defending Trump on this and criticizing CNN and the MSM.

  • Robert Brumley

    The majority of Americans knows already the communist news Network is full of BullS**t. Nothing they say or do applies to anybody but libtards that aren’t voting for Trump and they have never been credible. So it doesn’t matter what they say anyway because it won’t change anything.

  • keepyourpower

    Col. West…I learned from you….”You don’t receive flak, unless you are over the target!” Keep on keeping on, Sir!

  • Webb

    Vote Trump…MSM ALONG WITH CNN continues to be one sided for Progressives.

    The old hag’s supporters only want an easy button on EVERYTHING. WE want to think for ourselves and full well know of creative editing and “sound bites” from LSM. Listening to ENTIRE speeches removes LSM created fog.

  • Sam2001

    I NEVER thought or believed Mr. Trump was calling currently serving service members and other veterans like me ‘weak.’ Rather, he was saying we as a people need to step it up. Only 1% of the population serves, one percent!!!! 1% bear the burden. No matter HOW STRONG you are, there comes a point you cannot do it alone. The One Percent (currently serving military members) cannot do it by themselves, and adding in veterans only raises that fraction a few points.

    Dang it, we veterans ARE STRONG, our sons and daughters serving now ARE STRONG, but at some point the other 99% need to step up, we cannot do it all by ourselves.

    Any sane person who saw what Trump said wouldn’t even think that he was saying anything against those vets who committed suicide. He simply stated the truth and that soldiers react to the horrors of war differently. Some are able to adjust when the return home from combat while others cannot. Soldiers are humans after all and like all humans there is a different reaction to events, all are scarred in some one but others are more scarred. I don’t even have to wonder how CNN or the Main Stream media would report this had Hillary said the same exact thing.

  • frankenbiker

    How can anyone to expect any less from a media that no longer has any integrity or the desire to report the truth in an unbiasedway. The MSM is nothing but the propaganda arm of the DNC.

  • Uheshe

    It was ever thus but if people of Col. West’s stature keep flagging up media bias people will sit up and take notice.

    CNN needs to go ahead and just change their name to
