Myeshia Johnson needed comfort following the loss of her husband, Sgt. La David Johnson. Nearly two weeks after Sgt, Johnson was killed with three other soldiers in an ambush in Niger, Donald Trump called Johnson. But instead of making things better, Trump’s lack of respect for Sgt. Johnson and his family made things worse.

Myeshia Johnson appeared on “Good Morning America” where she spoke about her ordeal with Trump. According to Johnson, Trump told her, “He knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyways.” Johnson said, “It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice.”

Johnson also said Trump struggled to remember his name, saying Trump was, “stumbling on my husband’s name, that’s what hurt me the most. He’s out there fighting for our country, why can’t you remember his name?… He was an awesome soldier.”

Johnson said that Rep. Wilson’s account of the phone call was 100 percent accurate.

Following Johnson’s interview, Trump attacked the Gold Star wife and basically called her a liar. Trump tweeted, “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!”

Trump’s complete disrespect of Myeshia Johnson and her family is another example of the president’s incompetence. He doesn’t have the temperament, knowledge, or skill to be in the position. The man who blamed NFL players for disrespecting our troops for kneeling has displayed a total disregard for the troops in his own right.

Unfortunately, there are millions of idiots in America who believed that an idiot is capable of running this nation.

    Another idiot with a narrative… Good grief.. The president does something out of decency and respect, something he didn’t have to do, and all you people do is complain, twist words, and turn it ugly. You people are masters at that. You should be ashamed! You are trying to wreck our country and burn cultural bridges that once stood. You will regret your actions one day when you create a civil war. You are bringing it upon yourself.
    You are a liar

      The only people you should be blaming and complaining about; are those of your white media.. They’re the ones who take every angle possible to create racial tensions, and individuals like you, refuse to accept the truth, but you fall for the bait and blame someone responding the same as you.. I’m sure the president said without malicious intent, but your white media heard, feed it, and ran with it. Whites are complaining about the president, just like the rest of the country, so stop being melancholy and speak the truth about the media hatred towards blacks America.. YOU PEOPLE!! YOU HAVE A LOT NERVE; THE TRAGDEY IN VEGAS; INJURYING OVER 500 PEOPLE, AND KILLING OVER 70, WHERE AT THE HANDS OF YOU PEOPLE… SMH!!

        its possible we are all over reactring to trump , and magnifying every word he says , if an average joe said the same comment to her she would not have remembered it she was hoping trump would say something that she could twist , i dont support trump but wrong is wrong . you cant dissect every statement he makes , and yes the nfl is done wrong but they are out there to play a game and make money , so i doubt ifthat flag will put any of them out of work they will do what is told of them you seem to be angry at the system who hired trump to do a job he had no qualification for so meaning his money paids for it all

          Everybody may slip up every now and then and say something that didn’t come out right but this man does it every day. This woman is a grieving widow – let it go but he keeps tweeting about it. The fact is Dump is an idiot and when the media reports his dumb antics it gets worse. He keeps making dumb statements to defend his stupidity and it spins out of control. We know he is not articulate and the way he spoke to this woman was not tactful. Right about now we are not talking about the NFL but while we are on the subject whether they choose to kneel or stand is none of you and Dump’s business. Dump can’t even handle his own job and he is trying to run the NFL.

      there will be no civil war fool , but some of your point is legit , he did stretch the matter to fit his pschological ethics ., i swear reporters are getting away from writing the truth anymore everyone want to beat up trump ., and his money makes his transparent , he really dont care we all get mad but were really mad at a system that would elect such a character for president ,well reagan was a actor with no real education on politics , george bushe never went to the miltary and lead no civil or social groups . .

      • Sheilah Stover

        you say you don’t support him; IN THE WORDS OF MURRAY – THAT IS A LIE…however again – I wasn’t there and I cant interpret what another hears or how its heard- something was said, and to a person in mourning anyway its said can be hurtful.

      I’m sure the President meant well but he’s just a insensitive dolt. It’s not his fault, he can’t help himself. It would have been so much easier to not come across as a jerk and just apologize to a young widow who was stricken with grief by saying “I’m sorry if my condolences came across as anything but sincere”, this would have went away and we could focus on the rest of the ways he’s effing up. HE threw gasoline on this situation like he has done every bit of adversity that has come his way and your blaming “you people” and the media? I am a conservative that has no problem calling it like I see it. This guy is a menace and embarrassment.

    • Sheilah Stover

      isn’t that what the Don is after a “civil war” – I wasn’t there to say he did or did not say it how ever – it not what you say it’s how you say it and YOU know that to be true!

          • Kevin

            Is that how you talk to all veterans? I realize you are just trolling. I don’t get your purpose. It seems that actual thought and conversation would be a much more brilliant idea, but you hide behind insults. Maybe you aren’t very brilliant 😉 That’s pretty typical of the left 😃 Look at you fitting in! Congrats 👍😂

            Thinking I’m left wing just shows how mentally deficient you are

          • Kevin

            Your inability to hold a productive conversation without personal attacks shows your own mental capacity 😉 Your mom is calling.. You’d better go now. 😀

      • Kevin

        Did you listen to every other account of Gold Star families who came forward to talk about that? They all stated that Trump was very compassionate. At least one of them even recorded their call, then posted it online, and she was also black.
        This is nothing but the media trying to stir up tensions.

        • DfyneButie Bright

          you know Kevin when you are hurting it doesn’t matter what is said its how its said- words have no color- thank you for your services you are appreciated in my heart

    Even ALL my liberal friends agree; if you have a Congresswoman, with a blatant political agenda ,listening in on the call: all credibility of such claims are out the window. Having a debate over issues is fine. This noise is nothing but distraction. The majority of the families he called claim he was respectful. Why is that story left out of this narrative?

    hello mr shaw no disrepect to your career ,but i think you need to tone it down call the president an idiot!!! , you dont have to have the view of trump .but you also dont have to have his audacity either , you have kids? then you know your not teaching them humility or strength if you are baggering trump . it tells more about your character then his own ., you werent there , the wife sounds like she may be stretching the truth, but the comment trump made can be taken out of context, but if obama said that no one would have blinked ., im no trump supporter but right is just right, wrong is wrong , two of either dont justify a cause ., lets be human first , people make mistakes , what he said was an oversight he has no training dealing with humle, sympathy and the military families .
    they should have trained him better then they did . like all presidents are trained when they are hired .

    i have read several of your comments , downgrading trump ,and i said wow.. because while most will ride with you on it .. i dont and many others will not say much due to you being employeed for RO
    DON LEMON cant make any kind of trump hate statement and neither should you .. we all got made how whites disrepected obama, and he was half white , so we knew he was not gonna be respected by most whites , but come one . tick for tack dont work in this matter honey

    • Kevin

      I agree with you. We gotta stop all of this. Stop buying into media narratives. Stop race baiting. And stop the huffy attitudes. We gotta start loving again. We need to learn to take people at face value all over again, and we need to learn to forgive. I think we need to forgive the president of his past and listen to what he has to say. I hate the media because they have their agenda, and it isn’t good for any of us. They’d rather see us all war it out, because that’s news. Can we all just be decent with each other?
