Gold Star mother says Trump showed DISRESPECT as he spoke to her fallen Green Beret son's widow

– as president says congresswoman who claimed he said the hero 'knew what he signed up for' was FABRICATING his words. 
If at my death I were praised by the president saying that I knew what I was enlisting for, I hope my survivors would be proud and honored.* TD

UK Daily Mail  
President Trump phoned Myeshia Johnson on Tuesday afternoon to give his condolences over the death of her husband Sgt. La David Johnson; Rep. Frederica Wilson said Trump told her the slain solider 'knew what he signed up for'
. . . "The Gold Star mother of an Army Special Forces sergeant killed in Niger is backing up a Democratic congresswoman's version of a condolence phone call between family members and Donald Trump, saying the president 'disrespected' them.

"Rep. Frederica Wilson had told reporters Trump dismissively said to Sgt. La David Johnson's widow Myeshia that he 'knew what he signed up for' by enlisting, adding that 'when it happens it hurts anyway.'

" 'Yes the statement is true,' Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told the Associated Press on Wednesday.

" 'I was in the car and I heard the full conversation. Not only did he disrespect my son,' she said, but Trump also disrespected the dead soldier's father and his widow." . . .
Johnson, who is expecting the couple's third baby in January, later sobbed as she leaned over her husband's coffin

The Most Ridiculous Scandal Of The Night Involves Trump And Rep. Frederica Wilson  . . . "Wilson admitted to ABC News that she “didn’t hear the entire conversation” and that she “just can’t remember everything that he [Trump] said. But that stood out in everyone’s, uh heart, on the call. You don’t say that.”
"Wilson proceeded to claim that the partial conversation that she heard was “an insult to the entire Miami Gardens community, to our entire District 24, to Miami-Dade County, and to this nation.”
"The White House officially declined to comment on Wilson’s tirade.
” 'The president’s conversations with the families of American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice are private” a Trump administration spokesman told ABC News." . . .

Bahamian-American Wilson on right
The congresswoman who accused Trump of upsetting a dead soldier's widow has a history of antagonizing Trump

"As a Congresswoman sworn to uphold the Constitution, Rep. Wilson should know better." Commenting on her wanting to lock Zimmerman up "for his own safety"
Sarah Huckabee Sanders says it's 'appalling and disgusting' that congresswoman 'politicized' Trump's call to a soldier's widow
Rep. Wilson misspelled The young widow's name.

Political Cartoons by Tom Stiglich

I call bullshit. This is hearsay, uncorroborated, and out of context pot-stirring by Dem partisans riding the impeachment bandwagon--and recycled by lemmings masquerading as journalists.https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/920505428735352832 12:11 AM - Oct 18, 2017

. . . Wilson admitted she did not hear the whole call.
“Now I didn’t hear the entire conversation,” she told WPLG,  “but when I tried to find out what the entire conversation was, she said I just can’t remember everything that he said. But that stood out in everyone’s, uh heart, on the call.' ” . . .
Obama pictured saluting soldier's casket. I considered this a cheap trick by a president who loved to inject himself into every significant event, and, like Bill Clinton, wanted to play the role of loving his troops. This was early in his administration and I consider him to have been hoping for street cred with America's troops. 
I cannot believe his mentors Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright would have approved without knowing it was a necessary political posture. TD

* Please excuse my using four personal pronouns ("I"). After eight years of Obama his speech patterns have become mine. TD

I wonder how much the liberals are paying her to say this. I know Trump better than this and I think most Americans do. I am sorry for your loss, but President Trump never disrespected you at all. You are just another butt hurt liberal that did not get their way with Hillary. It's a good thing too or we would have more of our heros coming home in a box.
