Trump hits back at Gold Star widow who accused him of forgetting her husband’s name

(National SentinelFalse Narratives: President Donald J. Trump disputed a Gold Star widow’s account earlier today that he forgot her husband’s name when he called to console her after his death.

Myeshia Johnson, whose husband La David Johnson, along with three other soldiers, was killed in an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger carried out by fighters affiliated with the Islamic State group, accused the commander-in-chief of stumbling over his name during the phone call.

“I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday, defending himself.

“The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson (D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!” he also tweeted.

Johnson told host George Stephanopoulos earlier today she had not found Trump’s call comforting, saying that it left her in tears instead.

“The president said that he knew what he signed up for but it hurts anyway. It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it. He couldn’t remember my husband’s name,” she said.

“The only way he remembered my husband’s name is because he told me he had my husband’s report in front of him and that’s when he actually said ‘La David.’”

That is completely different from the account of a Trump consolation call given by another Gold Star widow, Natasha De Alencar, widow of Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar. She shared a video of the call with the Washington Post, in which she can be heard thanking the president profusely.

Frankly, it seems extremely unlikely that the president would not know who he was talking to and who had been killed in action before he made his phone calls. As Bill O’Reilly has said, this entire ordeal smacks of a politically motivated set-up meant to, once again, make the president look bad.

I agree. We know over and over the enemy of America is working overtime since Trump” American Nationalist got inside -keep America the way our founders and the people who grew up here deserve- not an open door to slums and world terror from people who were purposefully refuged in places they do not want to be or fair to people and cultures that live there.


America was made up of very largely protestants refugees fleeing religious persecution and seeking more living room for themselves by invading and killing the original ownersItwasnt a charity drive.
