Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Blames Trump For Veterans Committing Suicide

I’m sure this is going to go over well in Alabama.. Here is what Alabama Senate Candidate Tommy Tuberville has to say about President Trump:

“I’m pissed off at Donald Trump that our vets can’t get health care,” he said. “And if I ever get to see him, I’m going to tell him that. You said you were going to fix it and it ain’t fixed. And that’s who we ought to be taking care of — these young men and women. I’ve had them come up to me and cry. ‘Coach, we can’t get health care. Nobody will take care of us.’ 22 vets every day – every day are committing suicide. We can’t take care of them. We won’t take care of them. We’re paying for illegals to come over here – everything they’re getting: cell phones, health care, everything they want. That’s Donald Trump’s fault. That’s his fault. He’s got to get it done. That’s one of the most important things I think we need to do because we send young men and women over to fight for us, put their life on the line and we don’t take care of them? What are we doing? What are we doing?”

First of all, this is problem that extends through presidential tenures. It is no one president’s fault. Secondly, it is a problem the President takes seriously and is working on. Lastly, this really sounds like something a Democrat would say, not a Republican.

UPDATE: Arnold Mooney, who came to the Resurgent Gathering, is calling on Tuberville to apologize.
