Skip to comments.Trump told Widow Soldier 'Must've Known What He Signed Up For': Rep. [Florida Trump Hater]
Posted on 10/18/2017 3:04:15 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
...Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said she overheard President Donald Trump tell the widow of Miami Gardens native Sgt. La David T. Johnson, a U.S. soldier killed in Niger, that her husband "must've known what he signed up for."...
...."Sarcastically, he said: 'But, you know, he must've known what he signed up for,'" Wilson said. "How could you say that to a grieving widow? ... I couldn't believe, and he said it more than once. This man has no feelings for anyone. This is a young woman with child....
"Everyone knows when you go to war, you could possibly not come back alive, but you don't remind a grieving widow of that. That's so insensitive," Wilson added.

Yeah right. Trump says this to widows. GMAB
Comcast hates Trump.
It is refreshing to see someone on the left slip up and admit just how screwed up Benghazi was though.
I can see him saying this, especially if it was part of the conversation lauding his bravery and desire to do good. My family knows that I have signed up for this and that death could be a possibility. Trump’s whole point could have been about the soldiers bravery or service, but if you cherry pick parts of the conversation, you could probably make Trump sound like anything.
By the way, what does GMAB mean?
get me a beer.
It just doesn’t sound like Trump
ABC distorted this story this morning BIG TIME. The widow made no comment about what the President told her in private. After spewing misinformation the commentators added, “The Representative didn’t know in what context the statement was made.”
Yes, I can see Trump saying that...in a true, caring way of course.
Frederica Wilson is a virulent Trump hater. She is the worst.
It all depends on context. The guy did know what he was signing up for and yet he still signed up for it which seems quite commendable to me.
Try this version.
“He must have known what he signed up for .... and still he was willing to serve this great Nation that he loved.”
They sign up knowing they could die & that’s what makes them special. He knew what he was getting into & yet he was willing to die for his country. All those who enlist know this & they are indeed heroes. That’s how I took it.
Why wouldn’t it be normal to acknowledge the obvious, especially since it does indeed point out the evidence of courage while facing possible death?
There is absolutely nothing that President Trump can do or say that the rabid antiTrumpers will ever approve.
I don’t think that will change.
Was Wilson listening in on the other end? How does she know this? Was the phone line bugged? Inquiring minds wanna know.....
Sick sick woman.
And what was this rep doing “riding” with the widow? Hmmmmm
[Sick sick woman]
I’m SICK of seditious legislators like WILSON. Hopefully those in her district are too and give her the boot in 2018.
“said she overheard...”
Newspeak for “fake news in overdrive”.
Isn’t this an ode to courage? Knowing the peril and doing the right thing anyway?!?
Black widow feeds Trump-hate to her local Black Democrat. What a, um, surprise.
Me too. Not just legislators, I’m sick of ALL anti American liberals.
