Trump to slain soldier’s widow: ‘He knew what he signed up for’

Recommended Posts

I'm glad Kelly spoke on the matter, honestly.  There are tons of reasons this became an issue, but I'm not going against Kelly's account.  At the same time the family was distraught after Trump's call.  Serious misunderstanding all the way around, but it never would have gotten to this point with a less defensive prez, imo.

Kelly's not wrong but neither is the fact this is what you get with a buffoon as President. Expect more of this.

Exactly. It seems Kelly tried to give him advice on how to deal with the grieving families. But Trump butchered the message, used the occasion to take a gratuitous shot at Obama and stroke his ego by boasting about calling the grieving families. 

 

Trump can't help himself. He's just a callous, vacuous human being. I also expect more of this.

This is utterly ridiculous. Trump lacks credibility and is a frequent liar. Sarah Huckabee won't refute that he said what was reported. The family members of the slain service member confirmed the reported account.

 

All of this should erode your trust and belief in Trump's character. But it won't,  because you have some type of emotional stake in this loser.

Things libs say when their hatred for Trump overrules reality... 

 

Did the wife of the slain service member come out and say this is what happened?

If Clinton had done this and made the widow upset it would be the first news item on Hannity's Show. Stop the make believe. It's a huge double-standard and right now the mental gymnastics by conservatives is on a whole different level. 

 

Once you get it out of your head that you don't need to defend your tribe much less this pathetic excuse for a leader, the clearer you will see this political landscape. Trump will go down as the most incompetent and likely the worst president in American history. Generations will wonder how in the world anyone ever voted for him. Accusations of liberal bias will be irrelevant, because history will see him as the fool he is. 

This is some funny shit saying Hannity will have it as the first item...LOL...

 

Every alphabet channel would be calling each other to get their lies straight---and then could all come back a week later and say how wrong they were...and you dumb asses would be the first in line screaming about how Trump did this or Trump did that---just like this thread...

Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Florida Democrat who was in the car with Johnson’s family, said in an interview that Trump had told the widow that “you know that this could happen when you signed up for it ... but it still hurts.” He also referred to Johnson as “your guy,” Wilson said, which the congresswoman found insensitive.

Cowanda Jones-Johnson, who raised the soldier from age 5 after his mother died, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the Democratic congresswoman’s account was correct.

“Yes the statement is true,” she said. “I was in the car and I heard the full conversation.

At the airport, widow Myeshia Johnson leaned in grief across the flag-draped coffin after a military guard received it.

“She was crying for the whole time,” Wilson said. “And the worst part of it: When he hung up you know what she turned to me and said? She said he didn’t even remember his name.”

Alright Trumpers, let's hear it.

 

Tell us all how the woman who raised this fallen soldier is liar.

Tell us she can't be trusted because she's probably a Democrat.

Tell us how she is just using the death of her nephew as an opportunity to attack a trust fund pussy who's self described Vietnam was avoiding STDs.

 

Show us all how fucking low you'll go in defense of a senile narcissist. 

It's unbelievable how low you will stoop, similar to Rep. Frederica Wilson,  to take anything Trump does and demonize him. You would have to be an absolute moron, as many are proving, to think that even a nitwit like Trump can be, would intentionally go after a Gold Star Family whom had just received their son back in a casket draped with an American Flag... Now misunderstanding what he was saying would be one thing --- But, intentionally demeaning his heroic sacrifice, I call bull shit on this one...and to come out like this congresswomen politicizing this is more then irresponsible...

 

To have this idiot who has gone after Trump since day one and with her voting history how could one not find her to be full of shit... To make that point even clearer this dumb ass not only makes some stupid claim she turns right around again and goes after Gen. Kelly another Gold Star parent... 

 

Now you show us how stupid you are for believing this wanna be Dale Evans...

Why is Wilson even relevant? The family corroborated the storyThe aunt of an Army sergeant killed in Niger, who raised the soldier as her son, said Wednesday that Trump had shown “disrespect” to the soldier’s loved ones as he telephoned them to extend condolences as they drove to the Miami airport to receive his body.

 

Can you read?

 

Trumpers just want a way to deflect more of Trump's pathetic conduct by finding a nice fat Democrat to hate. Usually it's Hillary.

Was she on the phone too? When the wife comes out and says that Trump purposely disrespected her Gold Star Son I will believe it... Until then I'd say it's more of a  misunderstanding of the meaning of what was trying to being said...

 

Why is Wilson relevant? Because she's the outsider running her mouth like she has been about Trump time and time again... and now goes after Gen. Kelly...

Don't forget - a lot of these people go to church once or twice a week, but they're at the altar of political opinion 24/7.

It's worth remembering that this Ms Wilson also commented on the Trayvon Martin case by saying that "Trayvon was hunted down like a rabid dog...". This clown in a cowboy hat is given to lies & distortions of the facts, so it should come as no surprise that she'd attempt to exploit this incident.

I actually agree here. I absolutely believe that Trump said something inappropriate. I also think she has a responsibility to not politicize this. It’s not like he called the family with the intention of insulting them. Hey bro, I know you just lost somebody so I’m just gonna rub it in for a sec. No. she saw an opportunity to slam Trump and jumped on it.

 

That still doesn’t absolve Trump of being a jackass and missing the mark on a sacred privilege and responsibility.

It's more likely this dumb ass listened to 1/2 of a sentence and bent the ending to fit her agenda...  Just like 95% of democrats who have started twisting anything Trump does or says to make him look the villain... Just like this thread ---moron after moron condemned Trump until Gen. Kelly came out and smacked you all down for the bull shit you say and support... It's the same with the news that's reported daily and dems just gorge themselves on anything anti Trump...

I don’t believe for a minute that Trump intended to disrespect this fallen soldier. I honestly don’t think he cares enough to take the time to call just to do that. 

 

But he is a moron and he simply said something stupid off the cuff that ended up sounding disrespectful to the family. 

 

The problem is that he has a track record of attacking captured soldiers and gold star families. Only the most partisan Trump Suckers are going to just take him at his word on this kind of thing based on the statements he has already made in public.

He’s been condemned early, it’s true, mostly because he has a long and colorful history of douchebaggery. Much like you.
