Why in heaven’s sake is this man defending the indefensible?
Oh, please. It’s been well known that the Representative Frederica Wilson has held a long-term personal relationship with the Johnson family, and was there with Myeshia Johnson, widow of fallen Sgt. La David Johnson who died in an ambush in Niger earlier this month, took that phone call from Donald Trump, from which he reputedly said “he knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt.”
If anyone should be able to lend an empathetic ear, it ought be General John Kelly, who lost his son Robert, to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2010. Instead, he’s decided to do his boss’s heavy lifting by attacking those who had the audacity of speaking up over Trump’s utterly reprehensible behavior towards the widow of a fallen serviceman.
So cry me a river the next time anyone bemoans how difficult a job Kelly has controlling his boss. He signed up for it, and it now appears, he’s more than willing to wade into the political muck.
