Fiery Hegseth Rips VA Secy's Disney Remark: Obama 'Lackey' Hasn't Fixed the Problems
On "America's Newsroom" today, Pete Hegseth went off on Veterans Affairs Secretary Bob McDonald for comparing VA wait times to the time people wait for rides at Disneyland.
"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 yesterday to reporters.
Hegseth pointed out that health care is much different and much more serious than going on amusement park rides.
"This comment shows how much of a bubble Bob McDonald is [in]," Hegseth said. "The stats, two years after the scandal, are clear: Wait times are just as long as they've always been. And he's done nothing to fix it."
He noted that McDonald was brought in specifically to address wait times, but he's become a "lackey" to the White House, consistently undermining attempts at reforming a bloated, ineffective bureaucracy.
"We're going to have to wait him out," Hegseth said, explaining that McDonald's term will be up when Obama leaves office. "They don't want the real reforms necessary. We're going to have to wait for the next president."
