Here’s Why Trump doesn’t need to apologize to veterans, but Obama, Biden should

The main stream media was quick to demand and apology or walk back from Donald Trump on what they saw as insensitive remarks regarding PTSD. They failed to note how they took his phrasing out of context and spun it to the meaning that would make The Donald look bad. This veteran points to the real culprits who owe all veterans an apology. 

As Written By Sean Parnell for The Hill:

Donald Trump, while speaking to a veterans’ group in Virginia this week, landed again in the media’s crosshairs. The Republican presidential nominee was accused of suggesting military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are “weak”.

As an Afghanistan combat veteran diagnosed with PTSD after my service, I was initially concerned by this news. But looking past the sensationalistic headlines, there’s far less to this supposed “gaffe” than meets the eye.

As with most reporting on this year’s presidential election, which goes to great lengths to twist facts to suit a vehemently anti-Trump narrative, one should check the exact wording of what was actually said before making a conclusion. Here’s the precise quote from a transcript of Trump’s remarks:
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 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……

    There is a long list of examples that shows the great obama’s distain and likely outright hatred of the military. In the 2008 election, obama sought support from veterans and criticized the VA’s administration.
    PolitiFact, documented obama’s 14 veterans-related campaign (Broken) promises, which included reducing the backlog of medical care.
    “A proud and grateful nation owes more than ceremonial gestures and kind words,” obama said in remarks to the VFW national convention in August 2007. “Caring for those who serve and for their
    families is a fundamental responsibility of the commander-in-chief.” More lies by the usurper.
    Obama broke with American tradition by snubbing veterans on Memorial Day 2010. He vacationed in Chicago instead.
    Allows his Department of Homeland In-Security to accuse returning Iraq/Afghanistan veterans of being “rightwing extremists.”
    2013 – Ranger on shutdown, ‘We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can’.
    WWII vets had their memorial, in the National Mall, closed down during the contrived government shutdown. Many WWII vets are in their 80s and 90s, hundreds of these veterans are dying every day, and may have had only that one chance to visit their memorial.
    The memorial is an open area monument that you can easily view anytime the mall was open. The great obama’s minions were so petty that they actually had to construct barricades to close it off and prevent veteran’s access.
    However, just a few feet away, other obama regime minions authorized the ‘closed’ National Mall to be used for a pro ILLEGAL alien band concert and rally.
    The great obama and his regime cater to ILLEGAL aliens while more than SIXTY THOUSAND MILITARY VETERANS are homeless and hungry on streets of the United States.
    Ya just gotta love the obama regime, liberals and corrupt”o”rats; yeah, they know how to honor American veterans.

    Time to drain the swamp!
