Because your president is a feeble-minded idiot, he got on Twitter Thursday night and continued to deny that he made an insensitive and reprehensible comment to a grieving widow earlier this week, even though his chief of staff confirmed for the world that he had, in fact, said it.
Previously on White House Apprentice, the senile, doddering fool in the Oval Office showed that he really doesn’t give a damn about anyone when he told the grieving pregnant widow of a soldier killed in action that her husband “knew what he signed up for.”
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) was with Myeshia Johnson when Donald Trump called to offer his “condolences” to Johnson as the widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson. Because Myeshia Johnson had the president on speaker, Wilson also heard the comment.
Wilson (and everyone else with a brain and some amount of compassion and respect for a person who gave his life in service to this country) criticized Trump for what he said.
Trump said on Twitter Wednesday that Wilson had fabricated what he said, but during a White House press briefing earlier Thursday afternoon, chief of staff John Kelly defended Trump’s comment and said that he was only trying to express his condolences “the best way that he could.”
Kelly also attacked Wilson for listening in on what he called a “sacred’ conversation—intimating that she had told the truth about what Trump had said, but was wrong for hearing it in the first place.
So, once again, Trump is clearly off-script, and the rest of us are wondering why no one has deleted the Twitter app and put parental blocks on his phone yet.
He wrote just before 11 p.m. Thursday, “The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!”
Not only is he lying, but he is falsely accusing a congresswoman of being the liar. But he did at least latch on to the part of Kelly’s narrative where somehow Wilson was wrong for hearing the call.
How much longer are we going to be subjected to this? Can we vote him off already?
To find out what kind of spin they put on this latest bullshit, tune in again tomorrow for White House Apprentice.
