"Don't hide behind my son's death"


“Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration? Why? For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?’’
Remember when Spicer, Ol' Heel Spurs' babbling mouthpiece, claimed the mission was less than a success? Till John McCain said it was not? Then, Spicer and Ol' Heel Spurs displayed some of that Trumpian Outrage!™ and dragged Ryan Owens' name into the politics of it all? Anyone who questioned the mission was 'dishonoring' Ryan Owens' memory.
Ryan Owens' dad:
“Don’t hide behind my son’s death to prevent an investigation,” said the elder Owens, pointing to Trump’s sharp words directed at the mission’s critics, including Sen. John McCain.
“I want an investigation. … The government owes my son an investigation,” he said.
I guess Mr. Owens, a vet himself, didn't get the memo.
Remember all the Trumpkin Outrage!™ over Benghazi? But that was different. That was Hillary, despite what ... seven separate investigations saying otherwise?
And that *was* different. This is Trump. Trump gets a bye on this sort of thing. Because ... well ... this sort of thing gives all the Trumpkins the opportunity to beat the drum and wave the flag.
Can't question that.
Can't question Trump.
I'm waiting for Trump to blast Mr. Owens on Twitter.
