how do you take down an old bigoted, sexist unpatriotic president? question his loyalty to the country. take him to task. if one day he proclaims transgender soldiers and military personnel are “too costly”, then surely he’d remember the name of a fallen soldier when calling their family.
if one day he exclaims, “i’ve always wanted a purple heart! this was much easier!” then certainly he’d recall the name of a fallen soldier when calling their family. if one day he declares he “likes his soldiers not captured” when Senator John McCain’s name is mentioned, then i’m almost positive he’d remember the name of a fallen soldier when calling their family.
and if one day the same president, jokingly or not, announces he wished he had more nukes, and continuously taunts north korea while sending troops in harm’s way—then positively, he’d recall the name of a fallen soldier when calling their family.
but he didn’t. he flubbed the call and he sent kelly and sanders to clean up his blocks and apple sauce off the walls. and every day since, he’s been defending himself and doing his best to prove how much he loves his military, “his” troops and Sgt. La David Johnson. but hey, La David “knew what he was getting into,” right? whether or not he could remember Sgt. Johnson’s name, that phrase alone should earn every citizen’s disrespect. the sentiment is one thing, how one says it is quite another and let’s face it, the president saying anything is akin to throwing a revved up chainsaw down a flight of stairs.
a four star general sold out, as did anyone else who stepped to plate in defense of the lousy condolence call. a call while small to most, under the surface is actually very significant. quickly, the short list looks like:
- he has to call a black female. period.
- he can’t recall a black sargent’s name.
- he in no way, makes the widow feel any comfort.
- when called out by Wilson, he attacks her.
- within the amount of time he’s feuded with Johnson and Wilson, he could have visited them to bury the hatchet or invite them to an event. but he won’t.
we all know Sgt. Johnson’s widow deserves better. No matter how one examines the event. plus, the fact it took them an extra 48 hours to find and transport his body home is definitely salt to the wound, considering. therefore, it is imperituve media continue to challenge the president’s loyalty to his country. may the questioning of his patriotism drive him insane to the point of having a tattooed portrait of Barak Obama on his back!
