You Need To Read This Twitter Response To Those Talking Down To Carryn Owens

Everyone is going to be talking about the pretty incredible moment President Trump let the country in honoring Carryn Owens, the widow of the Navy SEAL who died in the Yemen raid he ordered. Some are pointing out dismissively that Trump was just using her to clear his name about the Yemen raid.

They might be right, but the way they’ve been condescending to Owen is pretty terrible.

And Mary Katherine Ham obliterates them over it.

Just read:

Well, damn. That was almost as powerful as the first applause for Owens. And it’s made all the more moving because Ham herself is a widow and knows that pain more than most people.

In any case, I do think that there’s a chance Trump was using the extraordinary moment to clear his name about the raid. But, Ham is absolutely right that it doesn’t take away from the beautiful and wonderful moment where a nation came together to show its gratefulness for such a painful sacrifice.

We can do more than one thing at once, people.

Here’s the video of Trump honoring Carryn Owens:
