Faux outrage over the comments made by the head of the VA over wait times? Chuck Todd was at it again this morning on Morning Joe ripping those who are critical of the VA remarks. The panel was strangely silent. I guess this week, the week in which we will celebrate the sacrifice of the very best of us, is not worthy of a foot note on the care they are receiving at the VA. They may have survived our wars, but cannot survive the healthcare dictated to them by bureaucrats. Here tis.

MSNBC host Chuck Todd ripped what he called a “wave of manufactured outrage” Tuesday over Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald comparing wait times for vets to people waiting in line at a Disney theme park.

“When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important? What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience?” McDonald said during a Christian Science Monitor event on Monday. “And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure.”

However, Todd, in an unusually strong tone on Meet The Press Daily, dismissed the rhetoric from upset politicians as mere pandering in an election year.

“It seems we are not living in a post-political correctness world,” Todd said. “This week, you saw lawmakers on both sides get their sense of righteous indignation up, wrapping themselves in the flag following these comments from Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald.”

After playing audio of the remarks, Todd snarked that candidates who were facing tough campaigns in 2016 were among those expressing criticism.

“Well, a wave of manufactured outrage, and some of it real, washed over McDonald in the day since those inartful comments made headlines,” Todd said.
