Flashback: When OBAMA Insulted Gold Star Families To Get His PHOTO OP!!

Since everyone is tossing mud at each other in the newest “Gold Star Family Mortal Kombat day,” I thought we might remind all the smug liberals about that time a Gold Star mom said former Prezzie OBAMA ignored Gold Star families’ wishes to get his photo op.

It’s from my Right Scoop post from August in 2016.

*******BEGIN FLASHBACK!!*****

According to a Gold Star mom, when the body of her son was being transported back the United States, Obama came out to be with the families of her and others who had members die in combat.

This is what happened:

He seriously had a photo op despite the grieving families telling him not to do so. I found this so despicable that I wanted to get more confirmation that it happened.

Well, it happened.

In fact, Obama actually CHANGED the policy on cameras at these events so that he could have photo ops. Here’s when they were debating the issue:

As the Pentagon reviews its policy banning cameras from Dover Air Force Base, sentiment among military families appears to be running against allowing the media to witness the return of caskets from Iraq and Afghanistan.

President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said last week that they were reviewing the ban, which has been in place since the first Gulf war in 1991.

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission, which represents 60,000 families of military personnel, including some who have died, asked its members last week in an e-mail whether they favored keeping the ban or changing it.

From their unscientific survey of about 600 responses, 64 percent say the policy should not be changed; 21 percent say that if the ban is changed, the families should determine media access on a case-by-case basis, and 12 percent say the policy should be changed to allow cameras to photograph the flag-draped caskets.

Apparently the policy was changed in 2009 despite the objections, because months later, there are these pictures of Obama at Dover Air Force Base:

Wow. That is just despicable.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!! He brought video cameras there to celebrate how awesome he is too!!

You can even hear the sounds of camera shutters clicking away so that Obama gets his terribly important photo op.

******END FLASHBACK!!!******

Now, in point of fact, I have no doubt that Trump could have said something idiotic to Myeshia Johnson, because he’s said something stupid about nearly every topic under the heavens. But whatever you think of the current Gold Star Family controversy, it’s hypocritical to ignore how Obama once ignored the wishes of Gold Star families for the sake of his own political aggrandizement.

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…
