And now the widow is preaching the same line, obviously because of the influence of Wilson, a close family friend, who has filled the distraught woman's head with mush at a time when she should be left alone to grieve. The words used by President Trump were the ones given to him by his Chief of Staff, retired Marine General John Kelly, words that have often been used to comfort those left behind for the family of a member of the all volunteer military. Trump and Kelly were right, these men and women who die do know what they were doing and in a place that they chose for themselves in spite of the dangers they face. And it is in such a situations that we are so thankful and appreciative of the sacrifice that was made. A perfectly suitable statement was made to honor the deceased, yet a vile Congresswoman, one who truly despises Trump from earlier comments she has made, used a solemn and sacred moment to politicize it. But, after all, that's what Democrats do, time and time again because, for them, everything is all about politics. Nothing else matters.
So, that begs the question: Is Congresswoman Wilson truly a big supporter of the military? Well, sadly, the answer is no and my source comes from the website VoteSmart.org, an organization which has had as members of its directors the likes of former Presidents Ford and Carter, certainly not men who come from the same political viewpoint.
A prime example of her lack of concern for the military are her votes back in 2013 against bills to make sure military were exempted from any dollar impacts during the cycle of threatened and real budget stalemates. She also has a track record of not being very sympathetic to the plight of veterans by her votes against many VA bills. Yet she is there for Mrs. Johnson, feeding her viewpoint to the young woman who of course is going to listen to someone who is a family friend. Quite the coincidence that this young enlisted man's widow was in a limousine with the Congresswoman when the call came in and was put on speaker, don't you think? How often has this taken place before? Gee, I can't find an example but it is a fact that the White House staff places a pre-call to make sure that the person will talk to the President. That protocol was followed in this case, making the Congresswoman's involvement in this humble writer's view a set-up. She was hell bent on finding something to try and make into an issue and personal fame.
The Congresswoman also arrogantly asked why we had soldiers in Niger in the first place and to that I would suggest she should ask Barack Obama who was the President who sent our troops there in the first place. And to her comment, which the widow parroted today as well, that the President didn't even know her husband's first name, think about that for a minute. If you were handed a name and you read LaDavid as the first name, would you not likely hesitate to make sure you got it right, that it wasn't a mistake? After all, it's not a common name and I'm sure that President Trump wanted to be sure it was correct. And since General Kelly was in the presence of Mr. Trump when he spoke to the widow and confirmed what he said, a man of his character certainly wouldn't stand by if something untoward had been said. General Kelly would likely even considering resigning under such circumstances, unlike the Congresswoman, who is seriously lacking in anything approaching character.
So, a time which should be sacred and a time for mourning is manipulated into a political event for the Congresswoman. And to think, Democrats often like to refer to Conservative Republican as cowboys. Well, we now have a rhinestone cowgirl, only not one who would be appropriate for a playing of Glen Campbell's great song by that name. She should be ashamed of herself, but when you don't have anything other than hate for the President of the United States that won't happen. Time to saddle her up and send her out on the range, anywhere but Washington.
My sympathies are offered to the widow, Mrs. Johnson, who was used as a pawn by a despicable woman. And may God care for her husband, Sergeant LaDavid Johnson, who gave his life for his country.
