Earlier this week, Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton managed to offend a demographic everyone agrees deserves our utmost respect: veterans. The former secretary of state had the opportunity to challenge the Department of Veterans Affairs on its scandal-plagued agency, yet she oddly claimed the fallout hasn’t been as “widespread” as some have said.
Has she followed the news? The VA’s disgraceful treatment of veterans was reported all across the country last year. Our servicemen and women faced deficient care, filthy hospital rooms and inexcusably long wait times. Some even died from negligence. Those weren’t rumors. Those were facts. That’s why Clinton is now receiving a barrage of bipartisan criticism.
GOP candidate Jeb Bush said her comments were insulting.
