The mother of fallen Green Beret Sgt. La David Johnson is backing up Rep. Frederica Wilson’s comments about Donald Trump’s phone call to his widow, saying, he “disrespected my son.”
The Washington Post reports, “Johnson’s mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Washington Post on Wednesday that she was in the car during the call from the White House and that “President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband.”
“But asked whether Wilson’s account of the conversation between Trump and the family was accurate, she replied: “Yes.””
Johnson’s widow said of Trump, ‘He didn’t even remember his name.’” That’s just shameful on so many levels. He literally stepped on the third rail by attacking yet another Gold Star family. This is such a disgrace.
Trump chose to disrespect the family of the one black soldier who was killed in Niger. This is all about race. It sounds like something a white supremacist would say.
Trump was asked about calling Rep. Wilson’s comments “fabricated” and he seemed to issue a threat:

Does this jackass even know that Sgt. Johnson’s mother confirmed that he “did disrespect” the family?

So I guess Trump will start attacking SGT La David Johnson’s mother a liar now.? Why can’t he stop attacking Gold Star families. @CNN

All you keyboard warriors going on and on about NFL players disrespecting the military when they see our draft dodger President consoling the widow of a fallen soldier by saying “he knew what he signed up for”. Get it yet? Probably not. #SgtLaDavidJohnson #VeteransAgainst pic.twitter.com/LasRDQ9LqG

Trump is a monster: Johnson's mother confirms Rep. Wilson's account is accurate. Trump didn't even remember #SgtLaDavidJohnson's name.
