In a rebuke to the mainstream media efforts to paint President Trump as cold and uncaring towards Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s widow, the widow of Staff Sergeant Bryan Black of Puyallup says that it took “bravery,” for the Commander-in-Chief to make the condolence call. As Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said from the podium various times, making a condolence call is the toughest part of any Presidency.

“I’m very grateful that he called and he spoke to the kids. And I think that the excitement from that made it a little better, even if it was just for a minute,” Black said.
“So, yeah he was very gracious and I appreciate anyone who calls cause, like I said, that takes quite a bit of bravery to call into that kind of situation,” Black added.
Fox 13 reports:
The wife of Staff Sergeant Bryan Black of Puyallup is speaking out for the first time after the ambush attack that killed her husband and three other U.S. soldiers last month in Niger.
“He always knew his odds before he went in,” Michelle Black said. “He probably knew he was not coming home, but I think he knew that if he took a risk some of his friends might.”
Michelle Black says her husband gave her the best years of her life. The best gifts of her life; eleven and nine-year-old sons.
The boys now realize that their father is not coming home.
Michelle Black says she is aware of the circumstance surrounding her husband’s death and controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s conversation with a gold star wife.
Black’s account differs greatly from the widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, Myeshia Johnson, who appeared of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” to slam President Trump’s handling of the call.

“Very upset and hurt, it made me cry even worse,” said Myeshia Johnson on her call with President Trump.
Following the Johnson’s interview, President Trump responded by tweeting, “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!”
