Skip to comments.President Trump's "Failure to Communicate"

President Donald Trump had a "failure to communicate" when he talked to Myeshia Johnson about the death of her husband Sgt. La David Johnson who was one of the Green Berets killed during a mission in Niger. Trump failed to consider the implications of the concept that "men are from Mars and women are from Venus.
Veteran sitcom viewers are very familiar with the basic plot. The man says or does something that those of us of the male persuasion consider perfectly sensible and the wife or girl friend blows her top because the female brain sometimes interprets statements and actions differently than the male brain.
Men tend to take statements at face value. Women are more likely to read between the lines and look for hidden meanings partly because many men have a tendency to deceive women.
I would interpret the statement attributed to Trump "He knew what he signed up for, but when it happens, it hurts anyway"] as praise for Sgt. Johnson's courage. Myeshia Johnson interpreted it differently possibly because women have trouble understanding the male warrior nature that likely has a genetic base.
Males in some species are genetically programmed to protect other members of the species, especially the females and "children". In primitive societies most males have a strong drive to protect the others in their village or clan. As societies become larger it is less necessary for everyone to be a warrior. This situation allows those with a weaker genetic "protection" drive to avoid combat. Those who inherit a strong "protection" drive tend to become the societies' protectors in the military, law enforcement and fire departments.
Men don’t normally expect others to use hidden meanings, and don’t normally do it themselves. We view it as fundamentally dishonest.
If a man does it, he’s trying to deceive — and knows it.
If a man is on the lookout for it, he doesn’t trust you to be honest.
So when you think he’s being either stupid or deliberately obtuse for not picking up on your hidden meanings — and criticize him for it — you’re actually just wanting him to stop trusting you to be honest with him.
I know a black dude who was married to a militant black female. I worked with both. The guy was a decent man who had been in the Army. She was as racist and evil as they come. The typical angry black woman (ABW). For the time that they were married, I saw him slowly become "Kaepernized."
The dead marine was obviously a good man and a patriot. He had the misfortune of marrying an ABW. Upon his death, she no longer had the balance of a good man to curb her natural instincts and reverted to her roots.
All of this of course affected her and the President's "communication" but that is the cause of it.
I think it’s nothing more than an intelligence issue with this particular woman; I’ve heard her speak. She’s not exactly an articulate verbal communicator. Plus, if she’s bigoted, she’s likely predisposed to hear what she wants to hear.
Trump did not do anything wrong.
As I said in another post, Trump should have merely clarified the next day. He did nothing wrong - there was just a miscommunication there.
And that’s IT in a nutshell.
This is an outright fraud committed by an opportunistic, self serving and demented woman...
Her mind was poisoned by the congresswoman
Sand isn’t that the problem.
Some people see what they want to believe
Others believe what they see.
Deductive Reasoning removes possibilities and leaves only probabilities...
Oh yeah? And just WHAT do you mean by THAT?!!!!
No doubt that is true. But she was not predisposed to resist.
The article implies it was an honest error; I don’t believe that for a moment. She was waiting with her rabidly-leftist congresscritter for the purpose of having a witness to create an anti-Trump attack.
He wasn't a Green Beret.
Wouldn’t it be great if all these hate-filled people of any race or gender would simply leave the country this country they hate so much and go where they think they would be happier?
What a glorious and beautiful day that would be for everyone. It would also be the end of the dem party since there would be no one left in it.
What this country could accomplish without the America hating parasites we have bred.
We could totally go the moon!!!
I thought that Mrs. Johnson said that Trump treated her with respect....did she complain or are there some trying to defend Trump where he needs no defending?????
The error was calling a black woman in a heavy Dem District. Just send an email.
Yep! By the way, always appreciate your leadership on FreeRepubic. Thank you, Vendome. You’re one of the heart of FR.
