When Trump says something, he knows something.

Looks like then President Obama did not call Robert Kelly when his son died in action in 2010.


Adding to the continued drama over whether past presidents have called the families of fallen soldiers, a senior White House official told ABC News today that then-President Obama did not call John Kelly, now the White House chief of staff, after the death of his son in 2010.

The retired general’s son, 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, died in action while serving with the Marines in Afghanistan.

When Trump was asked about his comment on Obama he said he didn't know, but was told O didn't call. He added a lot of presidents wrote letters.


When asked about his comment that Obama didn't call the families of the fallen again later in the news conference, Trump said, "I don't know if he did. I was told that he didn't often. And a lot of presidents don't; they write letters. I do.”

This latest liberal media and Democrat tactic is pretty crazy.
They are now parsing words of private calls and running ridiculous hit pieces.

It's enough to know the President called. The rest is irrelevant. I liked the gold star families interviewed on CNN who went off-piste. Basically told CNN to stop being ridiculous.

I would find it extremely hard to believe and outrageous that Obama didn't call Gen. Kelly when his son was killed in action.
But I find it extremely harder to believe that Trump was anything but sympathetic to that soldier's widow.
I just don't buy the story at all.

If this is true it's totally disgusting! But not surprising, since President Obama didn't even bother to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier his first year in office.

Trump is going to pay for using this as propaganda. Even dim Rick Perry is speaking up.

With the risk of sounding like a Trump defense, this one is overblown. They don’t call the parents of every soldier that gets killed.


What happened here was Trumps typical stumbling and bumbling defensive words got him into trouble.


Trump needs to learn how to just answer a question directly and do without the stupid ramblings…



Though I do think his statement to the widow…” He knew what he was getting into” is out of line

Terrible National Anthem rendition.

There is a lot we still do not know about the man who was in office for 8 years.

Michelle Obama told Barack not to put his hand over his heart. She was not proud of her country at that time.

If the take a knee movement was around, just saying...
