Speaking of non stories and controlling the news cycle via irrelevant issues (forget about the Hillary Clinton Russia collusion extravaganza), the mainstream media is now obsessing over President Trump’s alleged “insensitive” phone call. The story goes something like this: on Tuesday afternoon, the Donald called Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow and expressed his condolences over her husband’s death during a patrol-mission in Niger. For further reference, read this piece: US Troops Ambushed in Niger, 3 Killed.
Now, the widow (Myeshia Johnson) was heading to Miami airport by limousine when she received the phone call from the POTUS. The grieving widow was accompanied by DEM Rep. Frederica Wilson (a professional black and rabid anti Trumper who has been calling for his impeachment), who was sitting next to her, as Myeshia allegedly put the POTUS on speaker and Frederica Wilson overheard the conversation.
Now, Wilson claims that President Trump was insensitive over the slain soldier’s unfortunate death, as he told the widow that her husband knew what he signed up for, and he even failed to remember the soldier’s name. The fallen soldier’s mother Cowanda Jones-Johnson now says that Frederica Wilson’s story is true, while the Donald vehemently denies it, calling it fake news:
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!

What was Frederica Wilson doing there in the first place? According to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, General Kelly witnessed the conversation:
“General Kelly was present for the call and thought it was completely appropriate. He thought the call was respectful and he thought that the president did the best job he could under those circumstances to offer condolences on the part of the country.”
Reality check: President Trump called the widow and told her that her husband was a very brave man who willingly signed up for a dangerous mission to serve and protect his country or something along these lines. Democrats react by trying to politicize this event, because it’s all they have. They’ve been defeated in election after election, and now they’re powerless and desperate.
