Widow Myeshia Johnson Speaks Out; Trump Hits Back At Her

The widow of Sgt. La David Johnson shouldn't have to think about something like this.

The widow of Sgt. La David Johnson appeared on Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, and her calm dignity was in marked contrast to you-know-who.

"I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name, and that’s what hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country why can’t you remember his name," said Johnson, who had known her husband since they were 6 years old.

"That’s what made me upset and cry even more because my husband was an awesome soldier."

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., last week adamantly defended her version of Trump's phone call to Johnson in an interview with ABC News.

Wilson, who was accompanying Johnson to Dover Air Force Base when the president called, heard Trump on speakerphone attempting to console her.

"I heard him say, 'Well I guess you know he knew what he was signing up for, but it still hurts,'" Wilson told ABC News.

And then we have this response. Who do you believe?

edit: This clip from yesterday on Fox News really captures the alternative reality that exists among Trump cultists.
