Sarah Palin says Track suffering from PTSD, targets Obama in Donald Trump campaign speech: Latest update
Sarah Palin who recently announced her support for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and whose son Track was arrested for domestic violence says son might be suffering from PTSD.
The former Alaska Governorâ€™s son was arrested this past week for domestic violence. His girlfriend accused him of beating her badly and kicking her. She also said that she feared he might shoot him with his own firearm.
Trackâ€™ mother while speaking a rally in support of Donald Trump said that her son might be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
During the election rally in Oklahoma, Sarah Palin said, â€œI guess itâ€™s kind of an elephant in the room, because my own family — going through what weâ€™re going through todayâ€¦My son, a combat vet, having served in a Stryker Brigade for you all, America in the war zone; but my son, like so many others, they came back a bit differentâ€¦I can certainly relate with other families who feel these ramifications of some PTSD.â€
But this might be an oversimplification of domestic violence case. Arrested this past Monday in Wasilla, Alaska, Track Palin was charged with three misdemeanors. Track is an Iraq veteran who enlisted in the Army Sept. 11, 2007. His girlfriend claims that he punched and kicked her.
While speaking during the rally, she also accused Obama for the problem facing her home and the nation. â€œThey come back hardened. They come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen and every other member of the military, so sacrificially have given to this country, and that starts from the topâ€¦For the sake of Americaâ€™s finest that we have that commander in chief who will respect them and honor them.â€
