    (Note - If you can't read the whole thing, the key section about the high ground maneuver is separated.) In analyzing back and forth regarding the fallen Green Beret La David Johnson, it's almost unbelievable that this phone call to a grieving widow became a controversy that has spanned into it's second week I feel it could have been nipped in the bud very quickly. I didn't have access to a computer, and I was watching CNN to see what the left was angry over the night this came out, and I saw Breaking News. The news said that Trump...

    President Trump early Monday disputed the account of his phone call with a Gold Star widow, who provided a description of the call earlier that morning in an interview. “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!” Trump wrote on Twitter, referencing one of the Green Berets killed earlier this month in an ambush in Niger. Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation! 8:30 AM -...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., says she will no longer comment on a Gold Star widow's phone call with President Trump after White House chief of staff John Kelly's emotional press briefing in which he criticized the lawmaker for politicizing the call. "The congresswoman will not be making any further comment on the issue because the focus should be on helping a grieving widow and family heal, not on her or Donald Trump," Wilson's spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. Earlier in the day, Wilson had said Kelly's statements were motivated so he could keep his position in the White House....

    A Florida woman is grieving the loss of her husband Army Sgt. La David Johnson. She's thinking about the orphaned children her husband left behind, probably wondering how she will parent a six-year-old, a toddler, and an unborn child who will never know her father. But down in Florida, Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson is enjoying her newfound fame after she politicized the president's call to the widow. According to a local news report, Wilson is even laughing. "You mean to tell me that I've become so important that the White House is following me and my words?" she said laughing,...

    White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Thursday gave a powerful defense of President Trumps handling of a call to a Gold Star widow of a soldier who was killed in Niger and ripped a Florida lawmaker for politicizing the issue. Theres no perfect way to make that phone call, he said in his first public comments on the controversy over the call, which slain Sgt. La David Johnsons mother Cowanda Jones-Johnson and a Florida lawmaker who knew him called disrespectful. If youve never worn the uniform, if youve never been in combat, you cant even imagine how...
  • John McCain says White House not being upfront about deadly Niger ambush

    Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain says the Trump administration needs to explain how four U.S. soldiers were killed in Niger. Bryan Black, Jeremiah Johnson, Dustin Wright, and La David Johnson were told not to expect enemy contact on that mission to meet with community leaders two weeks ago. It will take an investigation to determine if any warning signs were missed, but Sen. McCain says the administration is not being upfront and he's demanding more information about the attack. In a pre-mission briefing they were told "no enemy contact expected," but the group, about 40 in all, were...
  • Dem Congresswoman: Trump Has Brain Disorder, Needs to be Checked Out

    In the course of a rambling interview on CNN this morning, Dem Congresswoman Frederica Wilson repeatedly claimed that she didnt want to politicize the issue of the conversation President Trump had with the widow of a soldier killed in Niger. Right. Wilson would never politicize it. Except . . . she said: Trump lied about the conversation, that given the chance she would have cursed him out on the phone, that Trump doesnt know how to sympathize and that his actions were disgraceful. Oh, and for good measure, Wilson said that Trump has a brain disorder, and he needs to...
