It was November 30th that Sarah Palin was reported to have been asking the Trump team to appoint her to be Secretary of Veteran Affairs. Just a couple of days later, on December 2nd Palin was reported to have attacked Trump for his deal with Carrier as an example of “crony capitalism.” Certainly that would suggest that the Trump team may have told Sarah , not NO, but HELL NO! That would explain Palin’s willingness to attack Trump, after previously attempting to support Trump, even though she appeared to be speaking a foreign language.
It appears American veterans aren’t happy with even the possibility that Trump would consider appointing Palin as Secretary of Veterans affairs. From jobs to health care to finding homes and the ongoing problem of veterans’ suicides, Veterans seem to be in need of a serious leader to help them find solutions. They need someone who knows and understands the problems that our vets are facing.
Initially veterans came together to demand an apology from Trump as a result of his insults toward the parents of a Muslim-American soldie who was killed in action, giving his life to protect his fellow soldiers.
Now, vets have come together to protest the potential appointment of Sarah Palin as the Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs. Veterans were reportedly horrified at the prospect that Palin might be chosen to represent their interests.
Citing her lack of military service and general dearth of qualifications, veterans took to social media to express their displeasure with Trump’s potential choice.
Sarah Palin is a supremely terrible pick for the Veterans Affairs Secretary. Being the furthest thing you could be from either a veteran or a doctor, she would be in charge of an intricate healthcare system in desperate need of reform and 300,000 employees. Here are just a few examples of comments from Vets to describe what an unmitigated disaster Sarah Palin would be a the Secretary of Veteran Affairs:
If Sarah Palin gets the job to head the VA, us Veterans are Fucked! She can’t even run water!
In 2014 an average of 20 Veterans committed suicide every day. Imagine the mass suicides that might result if vets felt Sarah Palin was their only hope towards having a better life! Imagine the mass suicides that might result if Veterans felt the President of the United States was so unconcerned with helping them that he would appoint somebody so ignorant and inexperienced as Sarah Palin.
