Is there anything Barack Obama can’t be blamed for?

Stumping at a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, former Alaska Governor and noted spoken word MC Sarah Palin attributed her son Track’s recent domestic violence incident to Obama-induced PTSD. Track, who served a tour of duty in Iraq, was arrested last night, in Wasilla, on three charges, including possession of a firearm while intoxicated and fourth-degree assault against his girlfriend. It has since been reported that Track threatened to kill himself with an AR-15 rifle. 

This is not Track’s first run-in with the law—last year, he was recorded shouting at police officers following a drunken brawl—but it is the first time his mother has tried to pin the blame on Barack Obama’s supposed neglect of the many soldiers who’ve been diagnosed with PTSD. “It’s a shame that our military personnel even have to question, have to wonder if they’re respected anymore,” she told the crowd in Oklahoma. “When my own son is going through what he goes through coming back ... it makes me realize more than ever, it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we’ll have that commander-in-chief who will respect them and honor them.” 

Obama, who was against the war in Iraq and has repeatedly asked a hostile Congress to devote more resources to the disgraceful mess that is Veteran Affairs services, is apparently not that president.
