Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said a lot of stupid shit during this campaign. He has insulted pretty much every group besides white, Conservative, Christian, men.
He has even insulted our military members. It's even worse now. Today, he made remarks about veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He said that they are "weak." Veterans with mental health issues just "can't handle it."
"When you talk about the mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat, 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."
How the fuck would you know, asshole? Your orange ass and the gerbil on your head never served in the military. Suicide has become an epidemic; 22 veterans per day commit suicide.
He needs to get his head out of his ass People with mental illnesses and mental health issues are not weak. It takes loads of strength to get through a day when you are fighting your own mind.
Vets are taking their outrage to Twitter:
