Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.), an Army veteran who lost both leg during his service, noticed that the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center was missing portraits of President Trump and newly confirmed VA Secretary David Shulkin.

He and others brought their own portraits of Trump and Shulkin to the hospital so that they could be hung up.

Unfortunately for the veterans, the pictures were taken down only after some hours.

Mast appeared on a Thursday segment of “FOX & Friends” to criticize the actions taken by the VA: “This is exactly what pisses people off about the government, is they don’t have that kind of reactionary capability to just fix a problem immediately. Here we see they made an even bigger problem out of the situation.”

Mast had also criticized the actions as “political.”
