Fox & Friends' Ainsley Earhardt pissed off at reaction to Trump's phone call to Military widow



Fox & Friends” tried to contain the damage after President Donald Trump upset the widow of a slain soldier by telling her that’s what her husband signed up for when he joined the military.

Steve Doocy introduced the story by accurately reporting the president’s alleged remarks, but then co-host Ainsley Earhardt accused Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) of being overly insensitive and politicizing the call.

“This representative, this Democrat down in Florida, said she was in the car, I believe it was in the car or she was listening on speaker phone, with the wife down in Miami,” Earhardt said. “She said that the president was insensitive when he called to say, ‘I’m sorry your husband died fighting for our country,’ and she said he framed it wrong. He said that comment, she was really offended by it. My response to this was the president of the United States of America called to say, ‘Thank you for your service, I’m sorry for your sacrifice.’ That in and of itself is extremely special that the president of the United States picked up the phone to call these families.”

“Listen, this is one representative’s opinion but what she thought the tone was and how it was being portrayed,” Kilmeade said. “Who are you to sit there and say, ‘I am offended by the way the president, by the president’s tone to this family.’ If this family won’t speak out, I get it. But for her to scramble and call CNN into this story and make herself this major event is, to me, is totally inappropriate.”

2. This is a disinformation campaign by fox and the WH.

They are pushing other propaganda. Next there will be a staged audio tape of trump saying just the right things, but you can't hear the other side of the conversation.

5. Best line of the piece:

“She said that the president was insensitive when he called to say, ‘I’m sorry your husband died fighting for our country,’ and she said he framed it wrong.


Actually, it was more like "Hey, shit happens, but what can you do?"

He DID NOT SAY "I’m sorry your husband died fighting for our country."

.............................Cowanda Jones-Johnson was present when the president called her daughter-in-law, Myeshia Johnson, during the ride to greet the slain serviceman’s body, reported the Washington Post.

The call, which was taken over speaker phone, was overheard by Rep. Frederica Johnson (D-FL) and a county official riding in the car.

“President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” Jones-Johnson told the newspaper.

The president disputed Wilson’s account Wednesday morning after she appeared on MSNBC, and he claimed to have proof............................

4. This is about race!

The soldier was black, that's why the Right is downplaying his sacrifice and the grief of his family. And that's also likely why Trump was such a callous asshole to the family.

6. Gee thanks Ainsley, that was indeed "special". They talk like Trump tweets

That was actually hard to read and I'm not talking about the condescending (and racist) bullshit.

8. The fact that the Asshole-in-chief and his propagandists are responding so quickly

means they know there is a problem. These FOX assholes are twisting the words to change the narrative.

The Congresswoman is a WITNESS you so-called news people. She is not expressing an opinion

9. They look depressed in that picture

It's probably because their job sucks big time. Defending Trump is becoming a neverending downward spiral into the pit of hell. It's a losing proposition and they know it.

11. I was wondering earlier when I saw this picture also--the men's facial

expressions seemed odd--but can't describe them. just odd.

12. Oh noes!

Those awful, awful blah women made President Trump's half-assed make-up phone call all political and stuff! The president literally phoned it in, and it's everyone else who's at fault for noticing.

Fuck that.
