    There ya go, douche bags. If you won't accept the word of someone who actually spoke with Trump, why should anyone accept the word of some notorious lying piece-of-shit politician?


    Not all Gold Star families are upset with President Donald Trump.

    Trump was buffeted this week by growing controversy over his conversation with the widow of an American soldier killed in Niger, after a Democratic congresswoman said that Trump told the widow her late husband “knew what he signed up for.” Trump denied that, though the mother of the soldier confirmed the account of the lawmaker.

    But the father of another one of the four American soldiers killed in Niger said Wednesday that Trump was respectful when he called with his condolences. Arnold Wright, the father of the late Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, said he and Trump spoke for about 20 minutes, and that Trump mostly listened.

    “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,” Arnold Wright told TIME in a phone interview. “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.”

    Arnold Wright said he had no qualms about the fact that Trump’s phone call came nearly two weeks after his son’s death was announced....

    That's a pretty common defense of Trump. "Well, he doesn't bully and treat innocent people like shit ALL the time.... why, look! Here's one time!!!"

    The lying left doesn't care about truth. They just want to smear Trump. Let them wallow in their hate and anger. That's all they're good for anyway.

    ^ That's what Trump is famous for these days, and why you voted for him.

    We're talking about the families of the soldiers who were killed, dumbass.

    It's amazing how leftwing morons can switch the subject of a conversation on a dime.

    Can we switch the subject to the families of soldiers who were captured? Can we do that real quick?
