The Idiot-In-Chief really outdid himself. Of course, what is to be expected from the narcissistic ignorant man-child that is currently in office? Four men died fighting an unfair fight in Africa. What made this situation even worse is what Trump said to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson.
RT these names, since Trump won't
Staff Sgt Bryan C. Black
Staff Sgt Jeremiah W. Johnson
Staff Sgt Dustin M. Wright
Sgt La David Johnson

Trump told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson “he knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.” Seriously? Not a ‘sending my condolences’ or not a ‘thank you for your service to our country’ or not even an ‘I’m sorry for your loss’. These are basic human interactions. Did Trump miss that class growing up?

This now widowed woman already has two young kiddos with another on the way. She just lost her husband, whom she’d known since they were six years old. She needed empathy and thankfulness from someone who is supposed to be the Commander-In-Chief.
What kind of a person says this to the wife of a dead soldier? What breeds this kind of heartlessness and cruelty? https://t.co/LqRXocbN1D

Let’s not go into how disrespectful Trump is being to the military and the flag here. Isn’t that what he’s been blabbering on about with the whole “take the knee” in the NFL? He just lost any validity he may have had in that debate. His say is now null-in-void (not that it much mattered, to begin with).
Ma’am, Ms. Sgt. La David Johnson, America would like to issue you an apology. Americans would, also, like to thank you and your family for their service. The road ahead will not be an easy one, but you have a plethora of folks praying for you and standing with you. Once again, we apologize for Trump’s insensitivity and disrespect. Your husband was a brave selfless man. Thank you for your service. May God shine upon you and the other three families.
