She brought up what she referred to as “the elephant in the room.”
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s son Track was arrested Monday and charged with fourth degree assault in an alleged domestic violence incident.
At a Tulsa, Oklahoma Trump campaign event Wednesday, Palin appeared to link President Obama’s treatment of veterans to her son’s own difficulties coping with civilian life after having served in combat in Iraq.
“But my son, like so many others, they come back a bit different. They come back hardened,” Palin told the gathering.
“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 added.
People on social media understandably couldn’t make the connection between Obama and her son’s problems.
I hope Track Palin gets help he needs, but blaming your son’s arrest on Obama in a campaign speech is…something https://t.co/IPp2dHNdZD

There were still some who nonetheless supported her.
@BenjySarlin No, she is saying that the left’s attitude to veterans is disrespectful of their service.
