Internet blasts Trump for ‘hiding behind veterans’: ‘Take that word out of your sphincter mouth’
President Donald Trump at the State of the Union address

President Donald Trump lauded military veterans during his State of the Union address -- but internet users hammered him.

Social media users pilloried the president for claiming to support military service veterans while endorsing policies that underfund their care.

"I signed the landmark VA Accountability Act," Trump said. "Since its passage, my administration has already removed more than 1,500 VA employees who failed to give our veterans the care they deserve — and we are hiring talented people who love our vets as much as we do."

"I will not stop until our veterans are properly taken care of, which has been my promise to them from the very beginning of this great journey," he added.

Twitter users were unimpressed.
