Not to many days ago, the Opposition was swooning about an open letter that Tom Arnold had published in The Hollywood Reporter about his nephew’s suicide and then hit the TV circuit to keep pushing the Anti Gun agenda.
But at least two people were less than pleased of his antics:
In light of his nephew’s suicide, actor and Iowa native Tom Arnold penned a column to The Hollywood Reporter expressing the need for more gun control.His nephew was a 24-year-old National Guard veteran who Arnold wrote was “kicked out” of the Army after he attempted suicide.
Wendy Burkle of Ottumwa was previously married to Arnold’s brother, Mark Arnold. They are parents of the man Arnold wrote about. She said that the piece was full of false information — including the claim that her son was kicked out of the Army after a suicide attempt.“His dad and I would like to let everyone know that we believe that (Arnold) has embellished the story to make it Hollywood worthy,” Burkle said.
She said she has asked Arnold to stop using her son’s name in his writing.
So, the scumbag went on an intellectual grave robbing mission, how nice of him. Who told him it was a good idea not to consider the feelings of the parent and to just lie to get some air time?
Hey, but that is not all. Arnold doubles down on the stupid! From the same article above:
Arnold said he supports a bill that would give veterans annual mental and physical health checkups.
Hmmm, that sounds strangely like a mandate to me. Is Arnold saying that all Vets are ticking time bombs that could go off any time and we need to keep close track of them?
I think we can safely tell the former Mr. Barr to go perform an unnatural sexual act upon himself.
