Trump Evicts U.S. Veteran For Having Therapy Dog; Happy Memorial Day


As Memorial Day nears and many across the nation prepare for that glorious Monday off, the real reason behind Memorial Day is lost across the masses. We can fully expect that someone in President Donald Trump’s administration will pull him to the side and remind him to make some obligatory Memorial Day tweet to acknowledge the holiday. However, don’t let that fool you or any Trump-supporting friends you may have.

Scott Dworkin, the co-founder of the Democratic Coalition, recently tweeted an unsurprising reminder of court papers showing that Trump evicted a U.S. veteran because he had a therapy dog.

‘This Memorial Day please remember Donald Trump once evicted a disabled US Veteran because he had a therapy dog-court docs below. #TrumpLeaks’

Specifically, the court papers described the complainant as a “United States Army combat veteran of Afghanistan and Kosovo” who had a “psychiatric disability that substantially limits one or more of his major life activities.” Furthermore, the court papers show he was advised by a psychiatrist and primary care physician to obtain a therapy dog.

Though they gave Trump Village a note from their physician explaining the need for a therapy dog, Trump attempted to evict them due to having a dog. Despite this, however, they accepted rent after the termination date of the lease and the Housing Court dismissed the eviction.

The hypocrisy of Trump’s business actions was not lost on Twitter users who responded in outrage at the deplorable act. Trump used the appearance of being a man for the military and for the vets to win the election. With a system that is undoubtedly broken when it comes to caring for its vets, it’s understandable they want to see that in Trump. However, one must take into account his previous actions. Trump allowed this to happen. Does he really care about a veteran when it comes down to his bottom dollar?

Twitter users responded likewise.

‘Why am I not surprised? He didn’t want black people in his apts. either.’


‘Making America great again I suppose,by disrespecting the people that fought for his sorry rear end, which was something he ran away from.’

‘@realDonaldTrump @SenateGOP @HouseGOP Remember our great soldiers in harm’s way, especially when they come home: VA Hosp, Trump evictions’

‘Not a single republican gives a sh*t they eagerly await brainwashing every election…’

‘People that support Trump r mean & coldHearted. This info will cause them 2love himMore. They r sending loveLetters 2 RacistKillers’

‘Money is this man’s god. He doesn’t care about anything but billionaires & getting his little hands on their rubles, I mean $’

‘Not to mention he is a draft dodger. & a tax dodger. & a pu*sy grabber.’

‘#veteransresist #memorialday2017 II Douchey is not fit to be commander in chief, never has been, never will be #TrumpTreason’

‘How many deferments did our Chicken Hawk in Chief have when coup day have served?’
