Trump’s Call To Green Beret’s Widow Is Horrific: He ‘Knew What He Signed Up For’

It may have been better if Trump had not called the families of the 4 dead Green Berets.
Trump’s Call To Green Beret’s Widow Is Horrific: He ‘Knew What He Signed Up For’

Donald Trump, President* Crazy Pants, finally got around to calling the families of the 4 dead Green Beret soldiers murdered in an ambush in Niger over a week ago. And the calls went about as well as expected. No, scratch that, they went even worse than expected.

Local 10 from Miami reports that while on a call with the pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson's, he said:

"{David] knew what he signed up for ...but when it happens it hurts anyway."

My god. I don't even know where to begin. He started off by BLAMING the dead soldier because he should have known better and then forced out some fake empathy. I just...how the hell is this man allowed to represent our country, our military, our people?

Florida Rep. Wilson, witnessed the conversation and said: "Yes, he said it. It's so insensitive. He should have not have said that. He shouldn't have said it."

Duh, of course he should not have said it.

Johnson's widow is about 7 months pregnant with their third child. Their other children are a 2 year old son and a 6 year old daughter. Trump's insanely awful conversation happened as Johnson's widow was en route to Miami International Airport to receive her husbands remains.

Local 10 reports that she sobbed uncontrollably as she welcomed her husband home in his flag draped casket. Police, firefighters and politicians lined the streets to welcome him. Absent, of course, was the Commander in Chief, who was tweeting at the time of Sgt. Johnson's arrival home.

The three other victims of the attack were Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Washington; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio, and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia.
