A gold star mother is confirming what Congresswoman Frederica Wilson told us yesterday -- that President Trump was disrespectful in a phone call to her daughter-in-law:
The mother of a soldier killed in an ambush in Africa said Wednesday that President Trump “did disrespect my son” with remarks in a condolence telephone call.
Sgt. La David T. Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Washington Post that she was present during the call from the White House on Tuesday to Johnson's widow, Myeshia Johnson. Johnson's mother also stood by an account of the call from Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) that Trump told Johnson's widow that her husband “must have known what he signed up for.”
“President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” Jones-Johnson said.
The president refuses to back down, as usual. Right-wing media figures, also as usual, are taking Trump's side:
And here's Laura Ingraham, from her radio show:
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): None of us know what happened on that phone call, but I can tell you this, I would love to put [Rep.] Frederica Wilson [(D-FL)] on the stand and I would impeach her credibility in about 30 seconds. She is a virulent Trump hater, and a tea party hater, and a conservative hater. She has every right -- She doesn't agree with President Trump, that's fine. But don't hold her out as some paragon of credibility and an objective observer as to what happened.
INGRAHAM: How many of you give much credibility to the woman who walks around with a rhinestone cowboy hat that looks like it came from Dolly Parton’s costume closet? She wears like a green one, and it's a -- She’s trying to play [Rep.] Maxine Waters [(D-CA)] for the -- She’s a combo of Maxine Waters and [Rep.] Sheila Jackson Lee [(D-TX)]. She’s very -- I mean, I’m all for colorful dressing, but you dress like you came -- you look like you came out of a carnival. This woman’s a nutbag. ... She's always on a tear about impeachment. So, she wants Trump impeached, and now she's flapping her mouth about what happened in the car.
So, no, this is not going to be the moment when the dam bursts and all the Trumpers suddenly say, "He insulted a dead soldier and his family! He's not an honorable man! The scales have fallen from my eyes!"
In fact, Congresswoman Wilson's Facebook page is a sewer right now. A sampling of the comments:
Disgusting piece of shit! Using a dead soldier for propaganda!
And "Spewing out" more hate and discontent, No pictures of you even being with her and if he was on speaker phone why didn't you open your mouth instead of just sitting there if you actually were there !
I see you are still a complete bigot and have NEVER had the best interests of ALL Americans in mind. I'm sure Mad Maxine Waters is delighted to know you give her competition as the most vile, despicable member of congress. Resign before your words and actions have you expelled from the House.
As a US Marine, we all know when we sign up there is a possibility we may be killed. So why is that controversial? Although I don’t believe a damn thing you say.
This comment was taken out of context from corrupt United States Representative (a Democrat) "Frederica Wilson" and interrupted into her own opinion. All she mentioned (another PAID “Crooked Hillary Supporter”) was the negative things about President Trump and NOT the good things said by President Trump regarding the telephone conversation between President Trump and the soldier’s widow. We KNOW your game girlfriend or should I say "Demon" ....Frederica Wilson is a TRUE follower of her master SATAN.
You need to conserve yourself to the utmost I listened to you on THE VIEW you sounded full of hate you need to close your mouth and listen instead of rattling on and on. ***Mr Trump is not a great speaker but he is a Business man whom knows how to establish what needs to be done and with opinions from Congress and perhaps to our best interest so be still and listen you might learn or accept some of his moves. SO GIVE SOME RESPECT TO OUR PRESIDENT.***Your problem was being close to David and feeling a lot of sorrow but you were making it worse for the wife. First of all forgive yourself for that. This will not help you get votes for your office position term again. He is my President and I am glad I my not like some words he uses or how he says things but I know he is working for AMERICA the beat way he knows how.
You are a hypocrite. You are the definition of racist. I live in Florida but I am thankful that you do not represent me or any member of my family. You bring shame to your position.
You're stupidest skank in politics. Can't wait to see your dumbass get busted. It's your turn. Cops are right behind you skank.
Where you getting all that money for them gaudy outfits? Hmm??
You are a disgrace to Florida, the entire country, and a filthy lying
