Thirteen days after his death, Donald Trump finally called the widow of U.S. Army Sergeant La David Johnson to console her for the loss of her husband – and he immediately shoved his foot squarely in his mouth.
According to Rep. #FredericaWilson (D-FL), Trump called #MyeshiaJohnson and spoke to her for about five minutes. Wilson rode in the car with Johnson and overheard the President’s words.
What words of comfort did he have to offer the grieving, pregnant mother of two? “He must have known what he signed up for. He said it more than once. How could you say that to a grieving widow? This man has no feelings for anyone” recounts a stunned Rep Wilson.
While yes, in some existential sense Sgt. Johnson knew he might die in the line of duty, Sgt. Johnson did not sign up to be #murdered by militants in the middle of nowhere in West Africa, fighting an unknown enemy in an unknown land for unclear reasons. When the bodies of the four men killed in #Niger were brought back to America, Donald Trump was #golfing .
But let us recall that President Trump had no problem bringing out the white widow of the Navy SEAL who was killed in his first disastrous raid in Yemen – a raid he couldn’t be bothered to be in the Situation Room for – as a political prop during his Joint Address to Congress.
For a man who has spent the past two weeks complaining that NFL players kneeling during the anthem is “disrespectful to our troops” to then openly be disrespectful to a fallen soldier is a heinous act of political hypocrisy so outrageous it’s hard to understand how he doesn’t spontaneously combust in a ball of fire.
Now he adds insult to grievous injury by making light of their deaths. It’s said every day, but this man is truly a disgrace to the United States of America and the brave men and women who risk their lives for their country.
Rest in peace, La David Johnson.

Never imagined him dropping down a slot after he literally locked himself in a room with reporters on accident and couldn't figure out how to put on a poncho
