Donald Trump finally took time away from watching TV and golfing on Wednesday to “comfort” the family of one of the soldiers killed in Niger.
Just how did he comfort her?
Trump told her that her fallen husband “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.”
Said a Frederica Wilson who observed the call between Trump and Sgt. La David Johnson’s family, “They were astonished. It was almost like saying, ‘You signed up to do this, and if you didn’t want to die, shouldn’t have signed up.’”
It didn’t end there; Trump shot back on Twitter:
Later in the day, Sergeant Johnson’s mother confirmed Wilson’s account of the story.
Absolutely shocking that this “man” was elected President of the United States.
It’s Thursday, October 19th, 2017. It’s not a normal day.
