Widow of Sgt. La David Johnson Slams
Trump Over Call: ‘I Was Very Angry’

Mediaite, by Aidan McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/23/2017 11:58:26 AM

The widow of fallen American soldier Sgt. La David T. Johnson appeared on Good Morning America Monday to discuss the death of her husband as well as the now-notorious call she received from President Donald Trump. Myeshia Johnson first told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she has yet to receive full details about the death of her husband — — a soldier who was killed in an ambush in Niger by ISIS-affiliated militants — and has a number of questions over what led to his death. The consolation call Myeshia received from Trump has become a point of controversy this week,

Comments:
I am terribly, terribly sorry over the loss of her husband. That said, It is absolutely stunning to me that she would go on with that reprehensible hack Stephanopoulos to criticize the president of the United States of America. That reaches a level of low class behavior I have never seen before in this country. I don´t know how we ever regain the dignity and moral integrity we once had in our nation. It´s so terribly sad to witness. It´s not difficult to understand that one could stumble over ´La David.´ That isn´t exactly a common name.

Contd. It´s not difficult to understand that one could stumble over ´La David.´ That isn´t exactly a common name. Stephanopoulos, being the Democrat operative that he is, dutifully led her to attacking the president. If he had any sense he would be utterly and completely ashamed of himself for politicizing the death of her husband. It´s even sadder that she allowed herself to be used as a political pawn in this sordid mess.

Oh plueeeze. This is not about this women´s husband making the ultimate sacrifice. It´s about her dislike of PRESIDENT Trump. I bet hussien could have called her husband by the name of Betty and it would have been accepted. I still say we should use the twisted meaning of the words" he wanted to be there" and use them on trevon marten. He wanted to be there. Same for mike brown. He wanted to be there. Grey in Boston. Him to. He wanted to be there. This women being coached by that nut job in the cowboy hat is using this widow and the widow is letting her.

I am sorry her husband died, everyone mourns for those four soldiers.
The wife was on her way to meet the remains at Dover, she´s in grief, pregnant and vulnerable.
Why was she in NY when she just buried her husband (Friday or Saturday) unless she is being paid? I´m sorry, but it sounds like another attempt to discredit the President. The left is desperate. Let this rest...in peace!

What Trump should have done was go in front of the media, express his sadness, and head off for a round of golf where he would be photographed laughing and yakking it up with his pals. This behavior is mainstream media approved and Is also considered appropriate after an American has been beheaded by ISIS.

I´m giving Mrs. Johnson a pass on this. She obviously was extremely upset at the time of the call and may not have heard what was actually said--until, of course, crazy hat Frederika coached her. This story has filled the weekend internet and it´s time for Mrs. Johnson to go home to her family. I´m sorry for her loss and I wish her well.

Agree with #12. #6, If you have not had to make that call, you have no idea what it is like. The fact that he is making the call for a solider killed in an Obama operation tells you what a great CINC he is. You need to move down to Frederika Wilson´s district where you will apparently be happier. MAGA.

Sorry but I can´t give Mrs. Johnson a pass. She was with a partisan hack and took the call participating in eavesdropping on the POTUS during what should have been a solemn occasion. Perhaps she allowed herself to be played under difficult circumstances, but her actions afterward suggest otherwise.

Looks to me like her 15 minutes are her priority.

#6, the president probably tried to compress four different ideas into one paragraph. That is a weakness of his.
The widow heard just one idea - that her husband knew what he was getting into, and, encouraged by the dimwitted cowgirl, stewed about that. She didn´t hear the rest.
She believes that her husband was not in that casket, because they wouldn´t let her look at his (mangled) body.

George Snuffleupagus is a longtime Clinton apparachek, there is no doubt that he arranged for the grieving military widow to come to New York to make an appearance on his show knowing that she would attack President Trump and the military.

Clearly the lady is not informed about exactly what happened to her husband, most likely because the US military does not exactly know yet and does not want to give her false or misleading information.

One of her complaints was that the military would not allow her to view her husband’s body. But before her husband was buried his body was released to a civilian funeral home that she designated. From that time on her husband’s body was in the custody of that funeral home. There is no telling what the brutal Islamist terrorists did to desecrate her husband’s body or what condition that the body was in. If the funeral home would not allow her to view the body, common sense will tell you that whatever happened to the body it was bad. Under those circumstances and the fact that she is pregnant, if she viewed the body she could have gone into shock, had a miscarriage resulting in the loss of her baby, and she would have remembered that sight for the rest of her life.

President Trump’s beef has never been with the dead soldier’s widow, in fact he described her as a very nice woman. What Trump has been responding to is the unwarranted political attack on him by Congresswoman Wilson.

It is clearly apparent now that the Trump call and the reaction to it was preplanned setup and coordinated well in advance in order to inflict the damage to Trump this has generated. Why was the congresswoman present? It’s obvious. Her instant reaction was in the script. Now the bereaved wife is going on anti Trump shows to continue the screen play drama. All part of the master plan.

Proving that no good deed goes unpunished. And that she has joined the list of grieving widows the Democrats use for purely political purposes: the Jersey girls, Cindy Sheehan. We don´t hear much from them anymore because they have outlived their usefulness.

So far, how many widows of the recent fallen service members been getting angry? Just one. hmmmm

Myeshia (silly name but oh so typical) - any empathy I had for you is gone. Go monitor your gofundme page as obviously $400,000 in DoD provided life insurance isn´t enough for you. That´s assuming LaDavid had enough sense to sign up for it. Snarky and nasty - you bet.

I can’t imagine a decent person calling with condolences and working from either prewritten notes or a teleprompter.

Unfortunately he (as many of us out here) had never heard of a La David amongst all the Keyshawns, Dwyanes, LeBrons and other madeup names that never saw either Africa nor Haiti nor a plantation ….. (I once stumbled upon internet pages dedicated to the naming of black babies, with scads of examples but the admonition that the parent(s) should add their own unique touches to assure individuality.)

The Empty Barrel has taken this story too far, and at this point my sympathy for Myeshia is strained. She is behaving far too Fredericaish. A little to Sabrina-y. I am really, really sorry that her husband lost his life. She should spend her time honoring his memory rather than running around, talking with any presstitute who’ll wave a few dollars at her to get her to publicly diss President Trump.

As I said before, it´s too bad Trump didn´t have a recording of this call. I will not blame a grieving family. It´s a shame it has come to this. Some have blamed the widow for talking to Steffie. Would it have been better if she had appeared on Hannity and said the same thing?

Sorry to sound crass, but LaDavid did know what he had signed up for! Why is it wrong to state that fact. It could have been a compliment from the CnC, praising Sgt. Johnson for putting his life on the line. And she could complain about the President that got her husband there!

She accepted the request by the Presidents´ staff to receive his condolence call upon the death of her his band, but then she apparently invited that dem pol operative in her fake cowboy hat to join her in listening to Pres. Trump´s call. The was set, their story scripted and supplied to the ted & always fake news dispensers. The media´s shtick is getting old!!!!

I saw the interview with LaDavid´s parents with Allison Camerata (sp?) on CNN. His mother was genuinely heartbroken and in much pain. So sad! She did not blame Trump at all. But LaDavid´s widow had this weird disconnect between her body language and the words she was saying - she did not seem sad at all. Strange....

President Trump talks in a New York City vernacular that is not straight forward standard English. Myeshia Johnson speaks and is used to hearing a Southern black Ebonics vernacular that is also not by any means standard English. So it is very possible that both participants in the condolence call were speaking in a manner that could easily be misunderstood by the other participant. If that happened it left an opening for a highly partisan and maleficent person, namely Congresswoman Wilson, to launch a political attack on President Trump while taking advantage of the grieving and vulnerable Mrs. Johnson. Remember that Congresswoman has been calling for President Trump to be impeached since he was elected because she does not like his political agenda.

Maybe President Trump should stick to writing official condolence letters to the next of kin of service members who are killed in action. That way there will always be a written record of what he said.

I had an aunt whose father was killed in action in the First World War. Her mother received a condolence letter from King George. The letter was short but to the point. She hung the letter in a frame on the wall in her living room and was proud of both her father and the letter.

Interesting that none of the other three families have been invited to the MSM studios to discuss their phone calls. By all accounts, the Army and our country lost a very fine soldier in La David, whom I´m sure had no part in naming himself. He didn´t just "sign up" to be in an airborne special forces unit; he had to work very hard to earn this achievement.

I´m not one of the "never Trumpers" and do not keep a list of those that may be inclined to be critical of our president. I´m also willing to fight to the death to protect our president against any unlawful attempts at his removal. Aside from concerted trolls and site pests, this site should not drum out those who may find reason to criticize PDT or members of his administration. Debating the points of presidential decisions, actions, or lack thereof is an all-American activity. Like many others who believe that Reagan was the best president of our life times, I don´t recall him being placed above criticism, even within conservative circles; however, he led our country before the widespread introduction of social media and clear cut polarization stemming from the over politicization of dang near everything. Prohibiting any and all PDT criticism carries with it a whiff of the Taliban.

This interview on the All Barack Channel by that virulent little Clinton remora Streptococcus is reason 1000 why I can´t stand him. He and his idiot network are using this widow Myeshia(typical Black name these days)to do nothing but attack a man who beat out his chosen candidate. The whole thing was a set up from the word go. I had a smidgen of sympathy for Myeshia until I heard her speak to the ABC gnome. She sounded preprogramed by that empty barreled all hat no cattle congressperson. Less we forget that Wilson like the majority of the democrats hates the military and is the Florida version of Mad Maxine Dirty Waters. It is all about smearing President Trump which in this instance is both pathetic and shameful. But then I´m just describing democrats. Whether they´re in the media, DC or elsewhere.

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis.

The National Security Agency destroyed surveillance data it pledged to preserve in connection with pending lawsuits and apparently never took some of the steps it told a federal court it had taken to make sure the information wasn’t destroyed, according to recent court filings. Word of the NSA’s foul-up is emerging just as Congress has extended for six years the legal authority the agency uses for much of its surveillance work conducted through U.S. internet providers and tech firms. President Donald Trump signed that measure into law Friday. Since 2007, the NSA has been under court orders to preserve data

Jeff Zucker, the former head of NBCUniversal and current leader of Time Warner’s CNN, has emerged as a surprise candidate to lead Walt Disney’s ESPN. Rumors began circulating this week in media circles that the TV executive who first rose to greater renown by boosting the fortunes of NBC’s “Today” show could be in consideration to replace John Skipper at Disney’s massive sports-media juggernaut. Skipper left ESPN late last year, citing a substance-addiction problem. An ESPN spokesman declined to comment, and spokespersons for CNN, Time Warner and its Turner cable-TV unit did not respond to queries seeking comment. Disney CEO Robert Iger

NEW YORK — Motorists would have to shell out $11.52 to drive into the busiest parts of Manhattan under a new proposal floated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ease traffic congestion and raise vital funds for mass transit. Trucks would pay even more — $25.34 — while taxi cabs, Uber rides and for-hire vehicles would be charged between $2 and $5 per ride. The pricing zone would cover Manhattan south of 60th Street. The idea, called “congestion pricing,” involves using electronic tolling to charge vehicles for entering certain parts of town during especially busy times. The proposal is expected to face stiff

A battle erupted Friday over a push by Republican lawmakers to declassify a report they say will reveal high-level government abuse around the federal investigation into possible ties between Trump campaign officials and Russia. Even as Congress hurled toward a shutdown, Republicans in the House were buzzing over the contents of a classified memo on alleged surveillance abuses that was produced by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). (Snip) Democrats dismissed the findings as a desperate partisan attempt to smear the FBI and muddy the waters around what they view as a legitimate investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said.

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
