The most trending story of the last 12 hours has been that President Trump apparently told the widow of a fallen serviceman that he knew what he had signed up for. The story went wild and the Twittersphere blew up calling Trump insensitive and evil, and pretty much everything else you could imagine. But there's one problem with the narrative…It looks like he never actually spoke to the widow at all.
It all came from Dem Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson, who blasted the president for his insensitivity, but now it looks like it was “totally fabricated.” Trump responded:
“Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!”
Wilson said that she overheard the conversation:
“She has just lost her husband, she was just told that he cannot have an open casket funeral which gives her all kinds of nightmares about what his body must look, what his face must look, and this is what the president of the United States says to her,” Wilson told CNN.
She added that she had no reason to lie about this.
But now that Trump is stating that he has absolute proof that this didn't happen, it begs the question of what the Democrats are willing to do to discredit the president. We know for a fact that they don't have a single proper policy lined up for the 2018 elections, and that so far their plan is just to go “full anti-Trump.” This is just not good enough.
We need a proper opposition party to create a stronger and better government. Liars and shills just won't do!
