Far left Cowgirl Congresswoman Frederica Wilson trashed President Trump after he called Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s widow, Myeshia this week.
Trump called the grieving widow after her husband died in Niger serving the country.
Frederica, who is always spotted in a glittery cowgirl hat, trashed the GOP president for his words to the widow.
Frederica said Trump was cold and callous to the widow.
“He said, ‘But you know he must’ve known what he signed up for,’” the Democrat recounted Trump saying more than once during the call to express his sympathy. According to Wilson, the conversation lasted somewhere from three to five minutes.
“Everyone knows when you go to war you could possibly not come back alive but you don’t remind a grieving widow of that,” Wilson said. “That’s so insensitive.”
Trump “didn’t even remember his name,” Wilson recalled Myeshia Johnson telling her after the call ended, the congresswoman told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday.
“She hung up the phone and said, ‘He didn’t even remember his name,’” Wilson said. “That’s the hurting part.”…
…The White House said Tuesday that the president had called the families of all four service members who were killed. “He offered condolences on behalf of a grateful nation and assured them their family’s extraordinary sacrifice to the country will never be forgotten,” the White House said.
Asked about Wilson’s characterization of the call, a White House official said Tuesday night that “the president’s conversations with the families of American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice are private.”
President Trump tweeted a response to the controversial Democrat on Wednesday.
And he has proof to back up his words!
Rep. Wilson may regret her latest attack on President Trump.
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!
