Donald Trump is insensitive. When he is attacked he puts up surrogates as a shield.
Congresswoman Wilson politicized the loss of a husband. She contributed to a political firestorm allowing Trump, and others, the political opportunity to fan the flames. To add insult to injury Congresswoman Wilson fanned the flames even more.
During all of this a Gold Star widow grieved.
The politicians should have stepped aside allowing her the opportunity to speak, if she wanted to speak. Now, she is...Sgt Johnson's widow is telling America how she feels:
Nineteen days after her husband’s death and two days after his wrenching burial, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson said she has “nothing to say” to President Trump, whose condolence call pulled the grieving widow into the center of a national controversy.
“Very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse,” Myeshia Johnson said Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” making her first public comments since she received the call from Trump, on the same day her husband’s remains were flown back to the United States.
The president, she said, told her that her husband “knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyways. And it made me cry. I was very angry at the tone of his voice, and how he said it.” The Washington Post
What happened to "honor and remember?" Trump and Wilson seem to have forgotten about honoring and remembering choosing instead to politicize and fight.
