Fake President spent Veterans Day being a Fake Commander-in-Chief

❝ “Two days after skipping a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris because it was raining, President Donald Trump called for effectively disenfranchising overseas military members voting in Florida, raising further questions about the draft-evading president’s commitment to the armed services…

❝ “It’s a nice commentary from the commander-in-chief on Veterans Day,” said Will Fischer, who served in Iraq as a Marine and is now with the VoteVets group.

❝ Less than two-and-a-half hours after Trump’s 7:44 a.m. tweet, the White House announced that Trump would remain there with no public events for the rest of the day.

“He’s not going to Arlington. He’s not even going up to Walter Reed,” Fischer said. “Once again, Donald Trump only sees the military as props. If it doesn’t benefit him, he’s not going to do it..”

❝ The White House did not respond to repeated queries about the president’s lack of a schedule on Monday. Nor did it respond to questions about Trump’s decision to cancel a visit to the American cemetery in France on Saturday and instead remain indoors tweeting, rather than go to an alternate site closer by.”

The gang of pretend-Republicans currently stealing DC blind will – of course – back their Fearless Leader all the way.

    I didn’t think anything could surprise after I found out three of his drinking buddies were running the VA from Maraloco, but he just keeps getting worse.

    “Veterans aren’t getting their GI Bill payments — because VA’s 50-year-old computer system broke” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2018/11/15/veterans-arent-getting-their-gi-bill-payments-because-vas-year-old-computer-system-broke/?utm_term=.fda9f449d699
    The problems began this summer when VA’s benefit processing system buckled under complex new formulas for GI Bill students. As a result, scores of veterans waited weeks or months to be paid, and have fallen victim to the agency’s decades-old technology that advocates and lawmakers have warned for months would do precisely what it did — fail.
    Now some veterans are still struggling to overcome financial straits after they took out loans or put expenses on credit cards. And advocates are concerned veterans are taking on financial burdens on top of other challenges, such as mental health and balancing school with family.
    And there is concern VA won’t have the problems straightened out ahead of the spring semester, either. …VA spokesman Curt Cashour said Tuesday that:
    895 students have waited longer than two months; they could be missing in the range of $1,500 to $6,000 or more in expected payments. Nearly 60,000 total claims remain.
    In October alone, about 1,000 students under financial hardship called a VA hotline for immediate help. About 450,000 veterans have been affected, though VA hasn’t explained the depth of their issues.

    “The road to recovery has been a long one for David Morales, who was injured during the al-Qaeda attack on the USS Cole 18 years ago last month. And he knew it would be difficult to collect the nearly $315 million that he and others wounded in the attack were awarded in their suit against the Republic of Sudan. But he didn’t expect the case to go all the way to the Supreme Court, and he certainly didn’t think he would see the Trump administration aligned with Sudan on the other side of the legal battle. “I thought the United States would be on the side of its veterans,” Morales said in a recent interview. “It was very surprising, especially with Mr. Trump in office. It seems like he is in support of veterans. It kind of hurts.”
    Years of litigation and millions of dollars in awards are on the line this week as the Supreme Court addresses a seemingly mundane question: whether notices of the lawsuits against Sudan were sent to the wrong address eight years ago.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/uss-cole-victims-opposed-at-supreme-court-by-unlikely-partners-sudan-and-us/2018/11/04/1647763c-deb8-11e8-85df-7a6b4d25cfbb_story.html?utm_term=.d2576f1ba477&wpisrc=nl_most&wpmm=1
