In an afternoon press conference, Trump said
that over the weekend, he wrote letters to the families of the four service
members, who died in the deadliest U.S. combat operation of Trump’s term
thus far. The letters, Trump said, either have been sent already or will
be sent Monday night. He also said he intends to call the families.
According to someone from Obama's staff, either Obama himself or Joe Biden greeted every plane arriving in D.C. carrying fallen heroes.
"The commander in chief told a totally irresponsible and disgusting lie in the Rose Garden today, claiming past presidents did not call the families of fallen service members," said a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, Brian Gabriel. "Trump's jaw-dropping, disrespectful lie is not based anywhere in reality and is another symptom of a deep-seated obsession with tearing down President Obama."
Former White House communications director and Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer slammed Trump as “a deeply disturbed ignoramus who is a pathological liar,” while former Obama deputy chief of staff for operations Alyssa Mastromonaco called Trump a “deranged animal.”
“I know he wrote to the families and I often was with him when he met with families at military bases to commiserate in person,” Fleischer said.
Pete Souza, White House photographer under
Mr. Obama, posted a photograph on Instagram of the former president and
first lady Michelle Obama consoling the parents of a slain Medal of Honor
Ari Fleischer, who served as spokesman for
President George W. Bush ― who launched the United States into the Iraq and
Afghanistan wars ― said Bush frequently went out of his way to interact with
the military community.
Even the sainted Ronald Reagan was there to honor the heroes when they returned home.
What was Trump doing when the four soldiers killed in Niger returned home?
Since the ambush that claimed those four servicemen’s lives, Trump has golfed five times. He doesn't even know if the letters that were supposedly written have been sent yet.
Why does this man lie about everything, even something as easily misproven as this. Has he never heard of photos? News coverage?
I find that I am physically ill at the thought of the press conferences this man gave this week, including laughing about how Pence wants to hang all gays. Big funny joke. He wants to take away health care from children, birth control from women, health care from a huge percentage of the population.
I won't even talk about all the saber rattling...
When is someone in the GOP going to notice?
