Just when you thought the left could sink no lower. The left sinks lower.
Florida Congresswoman Fredericka Wilson, listened in to a phone call between President Trump and the mother of a fallen soldier.
That in itself is wrong. Nobody should be invading that very private and intimate space. Especially a politician bent on grinding her anti-Trump axe.
Here’s what White House Chief of Staff General Kelly had to say, please remember, he lost a son in Afghanistan:
“I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning. And broken hearted. At what I saw a member of Congress doing. A member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the President of the United States to a young wife. And in his way tried to express that opinion. He’s a brave man, a fallen hero. He knew what he was getting into because he enlisted.”
Let’s be clear what happened here. Fredericka Wilson is part of the left’s hate Trump brigade. She deliberately inserted herself into the president’s condolence call and used it for political purposes. That is low indeed.
The media jumped on it. There were endless headlines like this: “Trump disrespected gold star mom.”
They just plain hate him don’t they?
And on Friday morning, after General Kelly’s passionate rebuke, we got this from Hillary Clinton’s campaign aide, Brian Fallon:
“Kelly isn’t just an enabler of Trump. He’s a believer in him. That makes him as odious as the rest. Don’t be distracted by the uniform.”
So Hillary’s campaign guy, calls a man who lost his own son, odious. Look up the definition of odious: “extremely unpleasant. Revolting”
This is another new low.
Forgive me for injecting a personal note here:
My brother was a Navy flier. He was killed in the service of his country. The idea that a politician would listen in to the bereavement call between my parents and my brother’s commanding officer, is frankly disgusting. And to use that intrusion for political purposes, is despicable.
Have these people no shame?
