Montel Williams was on “Your World” today, where he expressed his outrage over the VA scandal.

The retired Navy lieutenant and talk show host slammed the country for having the “audacity” to turn its back on those who have served.

“They have left body parts, some of them never made it back,” Williams said of our troops. “Some of them are here now and their souls are still there. And we have the audacity to turn our back on them? […] We owe this debt, more than anything else. The president just promised $5 billion for terrorists?  Around the world at West Point? Where he could have used today to say I’m sorry for the pain that I’ve caused you, the families, and I’m going to fix it today.”

Williams said less than 20 percent of Congress has served, and less than 40 percent of their children have served.

“So therefore, they are easy and quick to send someone else's child off to die, and they should be just as quick to protect them when they come home."
