GOP Congressman Who Supports Trump Calls Veterans ‘Moochers’ At Ohio Town Hall

Take a good look at the douchenozzle in the picture above. This giant asshole of a human being is GOP Congressman Warren Davidson of Ohio, and he thinks that some veterans are “moochers.”

As part of a town hall meeting back in his district, Davidson commented:

“Just like workers comp out here’s got moochers, I wish that there were no vets that were the same sort of problem on our society. But part of the problem is there are some vets that are moochers and they’re clogging up the system, and we do as taxpayers want to make sure the VA filters out these folks that are pretenders. Just like we wish there were no people out there with stolen valor, but that’s a problem in the vet community, too.”

The reaction from vet groups was immediate and harsh. Veterans of Foreign Wars spokesman Joe Davis said:

“Honorably discharged veterans with service-connected wounds, illnesses and injuries, or who are indigent due to circumstances beyond their control, are not moochers.”

Davidson, who is himself a veteran, was even given a chance to walk back his comments or at least clarify his ignorant remarks. Instead, he offered this bit of crap:

“Any effort to suggest I have anything other than a soldier’s passion for providing our veterans with the care they deserve is dishonest.”

Perhaps it’s time we tell Congressman Davidson about the real moochers in this country: Members of Congress like him who think they are entitled to a salary of $174,000 a year, along with healthcare and retirement benefits, that come out of our tax dollars. How much better would we be represented if we made the arrogant asshats like Warren Davidson prove they’re worth a plug nickel before we agree to give them a damn thing?

It should also be noted that Davidson is an ardent supporter of Donald Trump, who is always saying how much he loves and respects veterans.

Wanna see a moocher, Congressman Davidson? Go take a long look in the mirror.
