Let's dump the homeless veterans - susnus - 12-07-2017

Four days after Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin held a big Washington event to tout the Trump administration’s promise to house all homeless vets, the agency did an about-face, telling advocates it was pulling resources from a major housing program.

Quote:Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), who sits on a veterans' affairs subcommittee, called the VA decision "a new low" for the Trump administration that was "especially callous and perplexing" in view of the latest data on homelessness.

As time goes by, every day is a new low for the tRump administration.

And a new low for: NeverTrumpers, the Deep State, leftist nutcases, the crooked media and the shadow government headed up by Barry, Hildebeast and a whole host of extremist leftist failed politicos.

I'm shocked that his base thinks neglecting homeless vets is OK.

It is the same old bait and switch.  Just jump out there and say whatever the hell turns on the lowest common denominator for these rubes and wave a flag.  Cheer the vets, build a wall, lock out muslims and get your ass elected.  Then turn on them like a bottle of wine turns to vinegar.  One thing after another of screwing over the people that got him there.  But now we've completed the night of the long knives and Bannon is gone and weasels like Jared are still Goebbeling around.  Vets are no longer necessary for the show so they are remitted to the sideline.

Love this comment from the linked article (note: turn on sarcasm meter).

"But it's the kneeling NFL players who disrespect veterans, right?"
