Video: Double Amputee Vet Rips Biden To Shreds Over Story About Alleged Murderous, Rapist Veteran

Fox News explains:

‘Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s story about a Marine veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder was “abhorrent,” retired Marine Johnny “Joey” Jones told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday.

Jones, who lost both of his legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan, added that the story “shows how out of touch he is, and I’m personally offended by it.”

Jones, a Fox News contributor, made the comments reacting to a story the former vice president shared during his first general election campaign visit to Florida, the largest traditional general election battleground state, where Biden touted veteran issues.

“There was a Marine veteran that had been deployed a total of six times… Dodge Ram started down the street in front of his house. .. [He] saw a woman walking her dog, ran over her, killed her, killed the dog, put her in the back of his pickup truck… molested her … came home … and called the state police and said, ‘I just killed someone,’” Biden said in Tampa on Tuesday.

“There was a voice in my head saying, ‘I have to kill someone,’” he added.’

“We have to end the stigma surrounding mental health treatment.” added Biden.

Fox News contributor, and double amputee veteran, Johnny “Joey” Jones, was furious.  “It’s the worst thing I’ve ever heard a presidential candidate say about men and women serving,” the American hero stated.

The wounded veteran went on to claim that it “undid 10 years of work in the military nonprofit mental health community of actually removing a stigma.” 

These men and women may lose their will to live, but they don’t lose their soul,” he explained “They may hurt themselves, but they don’t go hurting others. It’s very rare, and for him [Biden] to tell that story just because he thought it had some shock value and somehow likened himself to this issue just shows how out of touch he is.”

“I was very upset because these are men and women that I fight every day to keep alive and to keep hope in their hearts, and to tell a story like that was not only irresponsible, it was malpractice as a politician,” Jones added.
