Palin Says Son’s Arrest Linked to PTSD, Obama’s Stance on Vets

Sarah Palin’s son was arrested earlier in the week and she somehow found a way to blame President Barack Obama.

Speaking during a Donald Trump rally on Wednesday, Palin blasted Obama, saying that he gave the impression he didn’t care about veterans and that it was his fault her son Track was suffering from PTSD.

“My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country,” she said after alluding to the arrest.

“It starts from the top. The question though it comes from our own president, when they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through, do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?” she added. “So when my own son is going through what he goes through, coming back, I can certainly relate with other families who feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with.”

NBC News reports:

Track Palin, 26, was arrested Monday night and charged with interfering with the report of domestic violence, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and assault on his girlfriend.

The girlfriend told police Track Palin punched her in the face, kicked her in the knee and threatened suicide with an AR-15 assault rifle.
