How Trump described Gold Star families at Dover AFB...

Lucian K. Truscott observed:

All this is just more willful ignorance contained within his usual fog of lies. But it was his description of the grief of families meeting the bodies of their dead at Dover Air Force Base that was most illustrative of his abject disdain for human life. “They scream, like I’ve never seen anything before. They’ll break through military barriers. They’ll run to the coffin and jump on top of the coffin. Crying mothers and wives. Crying desperately.”

His actions are starting to make sense.

1. How can he be expected to understand grief when he only knows how to care about himself?

2. He is loathsome in every way. Every damned way.

There is no bottom to him.

3. He said something similar about Rep. Steve Calise's wife

when her husband was shot during the baseball game:

While discussing Mr Scalise’s injuries, the president described the Republican from Louisiana as a tough character, and took note of the way his wife reacted to his injuries.

She “cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day,” Mr Trump said, according to Politico. “I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn’t.”

6. Of course his wouldn't.

That remark actually shows a degree of awareness, which he's usually lacking.

4. Spoken like a true sociopath.

He can't understand losing a loved one, because he loves no one, and I doubt anyone loves him, either.

(NBC NEWS) -- A Florida congresswoman said that the family of a U.S. service member killed in Niger was "astonished" when President Donald Trump suggested in a phone call that the soldier "must've known what he signed up for."

Rep. Frederica Wilson told NBC Miami that she heard the president's comment to Sgt. La David T. Johnson's widow, Myeshia, on speaker phone as they traveled together to meet his body on Tuesday.

"He said, 'But you know he must've known what he signed up for,'" the Democrat recounted Trump saying more than once during the call to express his sympathy. According to Wilson, the conversation lasted somewhere from three to five minutes.

"Everyone knows when you go to war you could possibly not come back alive but you don't remind a grieving widow of that," Wilson said. "That's so insensitive."

Wilson confirmed the details of the call in an email to NBC News sent by a spokesperson Tuesday night. The statement from Wilson described Johnson’s family as "astonished" by Trump's comment.
