Everything Trump does or says it to politicize something. He politicized this crap the instant he opened his mouth. Don't like it? Maybe you shouldn't have voted for an idiot.
Someone isn't paying attention, it was that race pimp who decided to turn this into a circus, dude.

The only ones ever to give me any personal grief were leftist pansies.
Whether Trump gave a parade or said someone that got everyone bent out of shape doesn't change the fact that another soldier is dead and leftist assholes are getting more mileage out of his corpse than Elon Musk and his electric cars!

Trump wasn’t wrong, I just recently got out of the military after 20 years. My mother was a wreck every time I deployed. It is what you sign up for, country before self. That’s why it’s the real 1% club to be in, I commend the fallen, they were all brave, all brave for their sacrifice. It’s sad that they lost their life.
Unfortunately we have got pundits in the website trying to politicize and criticize the U.S. President every time they have a chance.
Stories like this are starting to have a major impact. People are starting to see all the fake news involving Trump.This concerns me not because i support Trump, but because i dont like him. All these stupid partisan attacks is going to get this moron reelected.latest poll 46 percent of people think the press makes up news to hurt trump. Stories like this will only increase those numbers. When people stop believing the press even facts can be discredited.
This partsan BS needs to stop if it doesnt i can assure you democrats will lose. Time to dump the losing ideas of Clinton you cant attack the man withhout addressing alternatives to his policies. Democrats are doing nothing at this point other then resist. Look at congress we have them sharpening knives but doing nothing to help govern. Sadly if things dont change soon he will get a second term.

The Florida Democrat who criticized President Donald Trump this week for being "insensitive" toward the widow of a U.S. soldier slain in Africa might be facing similar criticism herself.
It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to an online vote tracker.
The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill which would have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits.

Oh, sorry, I thought Trump was supposedly different from Obama??
The logistics are difficult, but hardly insurmountable, if you're going to take the time to make a phone call, surely taking a little more time to have a personal face to face is doable?

I cannot imagine the anguish this poor woman is going through. Her beloved husband, a hero by any stretch of definition, is gone forever from her life. I can think of no way possible to break such news that could be considered truly 'tactful.'
I am only glad it wasn't me having to make that call. I would not know what to say or how to say it. I would probably just not say anything until she hung up... not out of any disrespect, but out of lack of knowing what to say.
He said Sgt. Johnson "knew what he was signing up for." I see one side saying that was disrespectful, that it was some sort of a dismissal of the tragedy. But I hear it a different way: he knew what could happen, but he was brave enough to go anyway. He was a hero, not for dying in service, but for having the bravery to go into service knowing that was a possibility. The former sounds disrespectful, but the latter sounds quite different. I will choose to believe Trump meant the latter.
But regardless of what he said or how he said it, Trump didn't have to make that call. He could have written a letter (or had a professional write it and sign it). It would have been easier, faster, less dangerous politically. He could have never said a word. But no, he called... the leader of the free world took the time to make a phone call to a grieving widow. I'll not fault him for that. No one should fault him for that.
The wife of a fallen hero is heartbroken... she is devastated. She is not responsible for her words, her actions, her interpretation of what was said. I give her a well-deserved pass. I will not fault her for what was done or said in such a time of mourning.
I will fault those who chose to politicize this story... Fredricka Wilson is a piece of sub-human filth that doesn't deserve the oxygen she is wasting. The reporters at the Washington Post fall in the same category. They are trying to score political points on the grave of a fallen hero using the tears of a grieving widow. How despicable, how deplorable, how absolutely reprehensible can a person be? There is apparently no limit to the depths of depravity these animals will stoop to. A possum has more compassion, a rattlesnake more empathy, a sewer rat more decorum.
Sgt. La David T. Johnson, may you rest in peace, sir. You deserve all my respect. Cowanda Jones-Johnson, may you be comforted by a power higher than myself, for I have no power to comfort you as much as you deserve or need. Donald Trump, thank you for trying.
Fredricka Wilson, may God have mercy on whatever soul you may still possess...
