Rep Brian Mast VA Hospital photosA group of local veterans was enraged by two empty picture frames hanging in the lobby of the Palm Beach, Florida VA Hospital. The veterans noticed that almost two months into President Trump’s administration, the VA Hospital had failed to hang the requisite pictures of the Commander-in-Chief and VA Secretary so they contacted their congressman. “Two blank holes, it’s been 60 something days now,” said Veteran John Rourke. “The veterans administration has been asked about it a few times, the local VA hospital has and they haven’t had any real reason other than they didn’t have the picture, which is readily available.” Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) who is a veteran and represents the 18th district which includes northern Palm Beach responded to the veteran’s request by bringing in photos of President Donald Trump and VA Secretary David Shulkin and hanging them in the empty frames. Shortly after the congressman left, VA officials had the photos removed. A VA spokeswoman said that the congressman’s actions were “inappropriate” and the cell phone video was not legally obtained. Additionally, the spokeswoman said the portraits have been removed because they have not been authenticated. According to the spokeswoman portraits on display at the VA need to come from the central office. CDN –
