The media went all out hysterical today and just about exhausted the whole entire country. To say they made Mount Everest out of a speed bump surrounding what Trump did and did not say to the widow of a fallen soldier is an understatement.
They reacted like rabid dogs doing and saying anything to try to damage Trump.
Fredrica Wilson became the new liberal darling and hit all the talk shows, including the view, to bash Trump.
Now Trump denies that he told the widow “he knew what he signed up for” but even if he said it so what?
Does anyone think that our brave soldiers don’t know what they signed up for?
To protect this country from our enemies.
And to remind a grieving widow of the higher calling, the real reason for her sacrifice is not a bad thing – it’s comforting actually.
What would you say to a crying widow?
Whatever you can to make her feel better. And you can’t read from a script, you have to listen and console.
The media needs to step back and try to regain their dignity.
Which will be impossible after what Arnold Wright, the father of Army Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, just said about them.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Trump called him a few weeks after his son’s death and he is breaking his silence to set the media and Fredrica Wilson straight.
Speaking about the call with Trump he said,
“He talked to me about the loss of my son and how he served with honor and dignity and he just wanted to give me a call to thank me. I told him the kind of man Dustin was. We talked about his deployment. We got troops out there with no air cover. There are still teams in the country. That was the main point that was the conversation. The tone was great. His comments were appropriate.”
When asked about the recent controversy Wright destroyed the hysterical media,
“I’ll say it: my son knew what he signed up for. He signed up to be a green beret. He had no illusions about what that meant. My son came from a military family with a tradition that dates back to 1812. He fully knew what it means to serve and the risk involved.”
