So, remember that time Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the VA should serve as the model for America’s health care system? Remember how stupid that sounded?
Well, today, Donald Trump came down on AOC hard over her garbage take. Oh, wait. No he didn’t:
He deleted the tweet? Oh, thank goodness. He must’ve realized how awful it sounded. Oh, wait. He was just correcting the spelling of AOC’s name. The rest of the tweet was accurate, as far as he’s concerned:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great. But that is only because of the Trump Administration. We got Veterans Choice & Accountability passed. “President Trump deserves a lot of credit.” Dan Caldwell, Concerned Veterans of America

The VA is very broken I am one of the Veterans who deals with the VA and there is a lack of care and attention that Veterans like myself deserve, fought for and earned. No Veteran should be homeless, jobless or without proper medical and mental care. But here we are

You're right. Veterans killing themselves at clinics is surely a sign of a healthy system. Heckuva job, Donny. https://t.co/zFHAJj0Mxn

Never underestimate Donald Trump’s ability to not only stick his foot in his mouth, but to swallow it whole and crap it right back out.
