Gold Star: The mother of an Army Green Beret killed in Niger says President Trump was disrespectful during his phone call to the family while they were driving to meet the body coming home to the states.

Trump told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four Americans killed Oct. 4, that her husband “knew what he signed up for,” and he referred to the dead soldier only as “your guy,” according to Sergeant Johnson’s mother and Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida, who both listened...

It's Been Said
This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.
