Sarah Palin is back in the news and has my vote to win Mother of the Year. The day after her son allegedly was drunk and hit his girlfriend, Palin was on the stumping block announcing that she was backing Donald Trump for President.
Rather than postponing that speech to be at her son’s arraignment on Tuesday, she went ahead. And rather than keeping silent about her son’s legal woes, she decided to turn it into a political statement about how Obama doesn’t care about veterans especially those with PTSD.
I do not disregard any soldiers issues with PTSD and don’t deny that Track could be suffering from that. But the vast majority of veteran sufferers do not lash out like he is alleged to have done. In fact one veteran’s organization has already come out saying it wasn’t fair thing to say.
Sarah Palin is lucky enough to have the financial means and the connections to get her son the treatment he deserves. I wish she would focus on that rather than using PTSD as a political tool to try and bring down the other side.
