Donald Trump launched a late night attack on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) for telling the truth about what he said to the widow of fallen U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson — that he knew what he signed up for.
Trump, clearly unstable, tweeted: “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!”

Um, as usual he lies. First of all, John Kelly confirmed that Trump indeed used those words to Myeshia Johnson and her family. Secondly, the phone call wasn’t secret. Everyone sitting in the limousine heard what Trump said because it was on speaker phone. Thirdly, La David Johnson’s mother confirmed what Rep. Wilson said was accurate and that he had “disrespected” the family.
So, what part of that was a total lie on content? John Kelly disgraced himself to mop of this controversy, which was of Trump’s making, and he’s still attacking Rep. Wilson.
Rep. Wilson is no stranger to La David Johnson’s family. He was part of her mentoring program. She obviously had a relationship with them. Further, what Trump is upset about is the fact that we were told about how he disrespected yet another military family.
Let’s just put this all in context — Donald Trump has a problem with women and people of color. He has no qualms about attacking us, while calling white supremacists some “very fine people.”
Any decent person would have immediately called back Myeshia Johnson and apologized for any misunderstanding or feeling of being slighted. No. Not this idiot. Um, by the way 45, what really happened in Niger? That’s what we want to know.
