Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) was present when President Trump finally made the phone call to his grieving widow and family to offer words of comfort and support. What Trump actually said turned out to be one of the most disgusting statements imaginable.
Wilson reported after exiting the vehicle Sgt. LaDavid Wilson’s family took to greet his remains that Trump’s words of “comfort” to Johnson’s widow were far from comforting and were, in fact, disgustingly dismissive of the family’s pain.

‘He knew what he signed up for, but I guess it hurts anyway.’
Rep. Wilson participated in an on-air phone call with the women of The View on Wednesday following those remarks. Joy Behar informed Wilson that Trump tweeted out that he has “proof” that his statements were misrepresented and that Wilson is a liar, then asked the representative what type of “proof” she believes Trump may have. Wilson dismissed that immediately.
‘President Trump is a liar…if he was taping the conversation, bring it on!’
The audience cheered in agreement.
The new right-wing voice for The View, co-host, Meghan McCain, attempted to give her a dressing down for her statements.
‘I don’t like the cheering of calling the president a liar…this was a private call between the widow and the president. Why did you feel the need to speak out and at what point did you think she would confirm or deny what you’re saying right now?’
Wilson explained that local news stations were waiting for she and the soldier’s family to exit the car and she was asked about the contents of President Trump’s call. Wilson, who said she wanted to “cuss him [Trump] out,” said that she reported the disparaging remarks as a personal, long-time friend of Sgt. LaDavid Jones’ family. She also vehemently exclaimed that:
‘This is President Trump’s Benghazi.’
Considering the immediate and virulent right-wing reaction to the tragedy in Benghazi, making the horrifying events there an indictment of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the entire Democratic Party, Rep. Wilson’s fury at being scolded by McCain is more than understandable.
