I don’t know what Trump said to that widow and frankly I don’t give a flying fuck. I didn’t vote for Trump to reach out and be touchy-feely with grieving families. He’s got other shit to do, and I’m pretty sure that for most of those families chatting with the President isn’t real high on their priority list.
This is all a bunch of crap. It started off with the media chasing a squirrel and trying to prove that Trump lied about something nobody really cares about anyway. Then Maxine Waters’ doppelgänger said she overheard Trump say something to a grieving widow.
President Trump on Wednesday doubled down on his denial that he told the widow of a soldier killed in Niger that her husband “knew what he signed up for.”
Speaking at the White House, Trump pushed back on details of his call with Army Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow that were provided by Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who was in the car with the widow, Myeshia Johnson, during the conversation.
“I didn’t say what that congresswoman said — didn’t say it at all — she knows it,” Trump told reporters. “I would like her to make the statement again because I did not say what she said.”
The comments followed an early morning tweet, in which the president claimed Wilson “totally fabricated” her account of the call.
Trump said he “had a very nice conversation with the woman, the wife, who sounded like a lovely woman.”
The president’s denials are at odds with Wilson’s description of the conversation, as well comments made by Johnson’s mother, who stood behind the congresswoman’s statements.
“President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” Cowanda Jones-Johnson, who said she was also in the car, told The Washington Post.
The media is hyperventilating like this is the cruelest, meanest thing anybody ever heard of. What a load of crap!
Assuming, arguendo, that Trump indeed spoke those very words, so fucking what? At worst it was awkward and insensitive. Not everyone can express condolences smoothly.
A far more likely scenario is that whatever Trump actually said has been distorted by a whack-job partisan Democrat.
Nobody gives a fuck. The people that are outraged are the people that are always outraged. Meanwhile, the stock market is up, the economy is growing, the Russian collusion story is out of gas, and ISIS is being crushed.
