Donald Trump has really crossed the line this time after he displaced a group of recovering injured and disabled veterans.

 

Background:

Donald Trump has made it clear in the past that he’s no friend to veterans. He’s mocked POW’s by saying “I like people who weren’t captured”, and said that they weren’t war heros.

He’s even known for ignoring veteran groups that call him out.

VoteVets.org, a veteran advocacy that’s been known for calling out Trump in the past in tweets which ultimately led to him blocking them on Twitter, has never shied away from taking Trump on.

“The Commander in Chief can block @VoteVets, the voice of 500k military veterans and families, but we will NOT be silenced,” VoteVets.org wrote on Twitter, while also attaching a screenshot that proves that Trump is such a snowflake that he can’t take criticism from those in the armed forces.

They called him out on healthcare, when him and his cronies decided they didn’t care about the elderly or those who served this country:

The #AHCA #TrumpCare plan cuts the tax credit that makes health care coverage affordable for veterans – and pushes them into the VA system.

And they called him out for stroking his own ego over approval ratings when members of our armed forces died in a tragic accident:

“The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt. Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm, massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works! The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election, just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating.That’s higher than O’s #’s!”

VoteVets.org fired back, saying:

As of 8:47am, not a word about the sailors whose bodies were recovered. At least we know our commander in chief’s priority – HIMSELF.

What’s Happening Now:

But what he’s done now is really egotistical.

From the Washington Post:

Citing security concerns, the Coast Guard says it is adopting a policy of periodically cutting off access to roughly two miles of the Potomac where it borders Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va.

The restrictions would clear the water of canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, sailboats, Jet Skis, motorboats and anglers when Trump or other senior officials of his government decide to spend a day on the back nine.

The buffer zone is stoking concern and opposition among recreational users of the river. The proposed shore-to-shore security area includes Riley’s Lock, the embarkation point in Maryland for a popular summer camp and a kayaking program for wounded and disabled veterans.

Yes, Trump is now blocking a nonprofit organization that helps wounded veterans.

He owns loads of golf courses, why is he picking this specific one, especially since he no doubt knows who he’s displacing?

Don’t Republicans think of themselves as “the party who supports our military” and says liberals are the ones who hate the troops? Why is it, then, that their president is the one who’s showing them the most disrespect? Even further, why are they being silent about it?

Oh yeah, because they’re hypocrites, and criticizing him, in their minds, is admitting when they’re wrong.
