Donald Trump threatens Rep. Frederica Wilson after he accused her of “fabricating” what was said to the widow of fallen Green Beret Sgt. La David Johnson during a phone call on Tuesday, saying, “let her make her statement again.”
Trump was asked about the “proof” he claimed to have of the conversation, he said: “”Let her make her statement again.” Er, or else what?
I still stand by my account of the call b/t @realDonaldTrump and Myeshia Johnson. That is her name, Mr. Trump. Not "the woman" or "the wife"

He did tell Myeshia Johnson that her husband know what he signed up for when he was killed in an ambush in Niger. Sgt. Johnson’s mother confirmed Rep. Wilson’s version of what was said on the call not only to the Washington Post, but also to the New York Times:
Cowanda Jones-Johnson, Sgt. Johnson's mom, just sent me a FB message. She is backing Rep. Wilson's version. "Yes. He did state that comment"

Now the Associated Press is reporting that Johnson’s mother also told them she heard the entire conversation and backs up Rep. Wilson’s comments:
La David Johnson’s mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the congresswoman’s account was correct. “Yes the statement is true,” Jones-Johnson said. “I was in the car and I heard the full conversation.
Trump also told another lie when he said Rep. Wilson changed her story. Um, no. She’s has said the same thing in EVERY television interview since yesterday evening.
“I had a very nice conversation with the woman, with the wife, who sounded like a lovely woman, did not say what the congresswoman said, and most people aren’t too surprised to hear that,” he said. He still can’t even remember their names.
Trump, asked about his “proof” Rep. Wilson was inaccurate in her description of the call, responds: “Let her make her statement again.” pic.twitter.com/lTOwJ7iCFl

Um, nobody with a shred of common sense is scared of this lying sack of shit occupying the White House. The man has no decency, compassion or empathy.

The last time Trump spoke with his arms crossed like this was the North Korea "fire and fury" thing. People remarked then he looked scared. https://t.co/p4EqKHML9J
