About The ‘He Knew What He Signed Up For’ Scandal…

So the media is going crazy over this report that just came out last night – it has to do with what Trump told a pregnant widow of a soldier who died in the attack in Niger.

Watch below:

Apparently he told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, “he knew what he signed up for…” and that sounds kinda terrible.

NOW… this story has a lot of holes. First of all the report is from a congresswoman who absolutely despises Trump. That means she’s likely coloring the report to be as bad as possible.

“Yes, he said it,” Fredericka Wilson said. “It’s so insensitive. He should have not have said that. He shouldn’t have said it.”

Also, the quote doesn’t stop there – he says, “he knew what he signed up for, but when it happens, it hurts anyway,” so the point of the sentence was to try to sympathize with her pain. Had it just been the first part, it would have been much worse.

Finally, we don’t know how the widow herself reacted to this – we only know from second hand accounts. And really that’s what counts.

Now you all KNOW I’m not a fan of Trump – I’m not defending him here out of partisanship, I’m just pointing out the media isn’t to be trusted on these matters.

“Reportedly.”

And the media is running with this like crazy because they think it’ll show how terrible Trump is. I’m not sure that’s quite right. We have to see some more confirmation of exactly what he said, and how the widow herself took his phone call.

One last point – if they’re so incensed about it, why not start a GoFundMe to help the widow through this awful tragic time? Channel that outrage into something good instead of just attacking the president…

    All of the people who have hated Trump all along are lathered up. Outside that totally predictable group, no one is upset. Hey Lefties: STFU.

    I don’t believe a word of this. More fake news from the demoncrats.

  • jimmyslippers

    Politicizing a condolence phone call., so very disgusting. She looks like a rodeo clown. My heart breaks at the lies and hatred that the left spews up daily.

    this will never stop

    Trump could have been on the mission and tried to save their lives and the media and demoncrat politicians and talking heads would still be spewing bile

    For a guy that went to a rather expensive and exclusive private school and college, he sure has the sh*ttest vocabulary outside of a 7 year old.

    If you can’t make yourself understood clearly without having to resort to a half-dozen rewrites and “What He REALLY meant was…” is a person that maybe should think about trying NOT to ‘comfort’ anyone, let alone use words/emotions outside his comfort zone.

  • Grant Naylor

    Well, he had his chance back during Vietnam to do so, but…

    The problem isn’t the media or Democrats ALONE, its also Trump himself….he shouldn’t speak “off the cuff” because he sounds…well, he sounds like Trump.

    Let him read a few lines of condolence from a prepared text and call it a day. Trump is not a deep wellspring of emotions that don’t relate directly to him.

  • Deserttrek

    grow up regarding his emotions , if you don’ know him personally then it is an exercise in gross ignorance
    as far as vietnam , nothing to do with this issue nor would any rational human think it does

    read the previous comment which puts my reply in context.

    Sorry, but I try not to act like he can turn water into wine…well, WHINE, maybe… :o)
