Donald Trump just does not have the character to apologize to the young widow of a Special Forces member who was killed in action in Niger. The mother of a two-year-old and a six-year-old is pregnant with their third child and in the darkest days of her mourning. The president continued his vile behavior, attacking her once again.
Trump stood on the White House grounds before getting into his helicopter and called the fallen soldier’s widow a liar. He rebutted everything that Myeshia Johnson told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. How can the leader of the free world think that her feelings are more important than his?
Trump contradicted her, needing to win against the young mother, saying he was”extremely courteous:”
‘I was extremely nice to her. I was extremely courteous…Everybody has said unbelievably good things…I called La David right from the beginning. One of the great memories of all time…There was no hesitation. I extremely nice to her, extremely respectful.’
The president has said this over and over, trying to convince either the public or himself — or both. Myeshia Johnson and those who were in the limousine on the way to the Dover Airport to meet her husband’s body heard something else.
This tweet included a video showing Donald Trump in action, once again battling with the distraught pregnant widow:
