      To be expected, after a few minutes random glancing at the pages, WMP/W currently breaking down in tears for SO MANY REASONS! Our Forever FLOTUS shines with the Light of a million Suns! There are no emojis fitting to the occasion of the release of this much-needed book. It is beautiful!

        I watched MSNBC Stephanie Ruhl’s piece on the 4 soldiers, when she got to Sgt. LaDavid Johnson she just broke down crying, I even started crying because you just can’t help but cry for his widow, Myeshia Johnson who was devastated with his death, not being able to see him for the last time (no open casket), and the heartless words from that waste-of-a-life-in-the-WH. The hurt she must feel, I wish PBO could be CIC for a few hours to comfort her and have him sign the plaque they get. I would not want anything with satan’s signature on it in my house or having to touch it.

          I just watched MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle share the names and the stories of the four soldiers killed in Niger. I could not hold back the tears after seeing Sgt. LaDavid Johnson widow Myeshia Johnson draped over his casket and his young daughter holding her mom’s hand. My Lord.

    I remember reading here or seeing video of PBO whenever he was called upon to be consoler-chief that he would KNOW their names, spouses name, children’s names, parent’s names. Ask his staff to contact a family member or close family friends to tell them about the person who passed so that he’s words could not only be consoling but personal for that family.

    The A$$hole-In-Chief didn’t bother to learn the spouses name nor the soldier’s name! All the other garbage he said is just that, garbage. It’s as though a total stranger off the street got her number and pranked called a grieving widow just before receiving her husband’s body.

      GA jojo.

      It’s truly astounding that WH staff and the grotesque evil in the WH (whom I formerly referred to as FUBAR, but that’s too good this heartless, cruel sadist) are digging their heels in deeper to attack and insult a Gold Star family. 😦

      Absolutely no consideration AT ALL what it would be like to be 24 years old, pregnant and learn the circumstances surrounding the death of your soulmate. Unbelievable.

        This monster has to stopped. If the media gives him shade by going after his mother, father, aunts, etc. and if they do I will go berserk on them. This is crazy.

        So now he’s threatening the widow’s family and Rep Wilson? He’s a liar. And I see Democratic Senators sitting there beside him. Shame on them for normalizing this monster.

        {{{{MTMARILYN}}}} how you be gurrl? I just found a couple of the TOD wristbands from our June trip and was thinking about you and all the lovely ladies TOD’rs that met up in DC. Pete’s book comes out or ships in November, I think 7th or 8th per Amazon.com. GGail and BetsyK from our SoCal TOD’rs group literally got the last two tickets to see Pete in LA when he’s here in January. Both of his LA shows are completely sold out! Can’t imagine why. (snark) Hugs to you! ❤ ❤

          Yo, GxG and Betsy, you’d best take note of *every*thing for your boots-on-the-ground report back to the TOD village. 😀 😀

          Good evening my dear. I think of our trip so much. We had such a special time. Looking forward to another get together sometime at least at the opening of the Obama Library. So happy for Gail and Betsy got tickets to see Pete. So jealous. We will expect a long report.

          Hope all is well with you. I am well just so thankful for this place that gives us solitice

    President Trump, in a personal phone call to a grieving military father, offered him $25,000 and said he would direct his staff to establish an online fundraiser for the family, but neither happened, the father said.

    Chris Baldridge, the father of Army Cpl. Dillon Baldridge, told The Washington Post that Trump called him at his home in Zebulon, N.C., a few weeks after his 22-year-old son and two fellow soldiers were gunned down by an Afghan police officer in a suspected insider attack June 10. Their phone conversation lasted about 15 minutes, Baldridge said, and centered for a time on the father’s struggle with the manner in which his son was killed.

    “I said, ‘Me and my wife would rather our son died in trench warfare,’ “ Baldridge said. “I feel like he got murdered over there.”

      Trump lies as easily as he breathes. We cannot believe a word he says about anything. Plus, why is he giving some grieving military parents money while not doing the same for others? This is not normal.

      Notice whose money the Idiot President was offering (online fundraiser) in order to lay claim to something ‘no other president has ever done’? There is no limit to this fraud!

    February 28th FUBAR’s staged joint address to congress where he had Carryn Owen widow of the Navy Seal William Ryan Owen, looking up to the heavens suggesting that he was looking down from heaven. This was in my opinion staged so that his failed first raid would not be shown as a complete failure by the media or they were dishonoring the memory of the Navy Seal. Why is this NEVER politicizing by FUBAR but when people show his failures they are disrespecting the troops and politicizing their deaths.

    I HATE HIM SO MUCH!

    THE MEDIA CONTINUES TO GIVE HIM SHADE AND THE HOUSE/SENATE CONTROLLED GOP WILL NOT HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE. THERE WILL BE NO HEARINGS OR INVESTIGATIONS.

    Isn’t it lovely to have a “President” who calls the family of grieving soldiers liars because he’s an insensitive S.O.B.? This country cannot survive years of the Trump regime. He needs to be gone. We have to continue to resist this racist bastard.

      My GOD. Listening to Randi Rhodes that the “General’s” had NO CLUE, NO PLANS, when they were ambushed there was a 30 minute fire fight, they called for back up and there was NONE! The French flew from 75 miles away to try to find them, when their bodies were recovered, Sgt. LaDavid Johnson’s body was left behind. The story is so awful and this is another failed mission.

    I hope the reason Sgt. Johnson was initially left behind by the rescuing team was not because of confusion related to his race

    Trump promise the father of a dead soldier that he would send him $25,000 dollars, he hadn’t sent it and he just sent it when the Washington Post found out about it. Well the WH said he sent it.

    This….

    “Trump does not possess an ounce of compassion. He is reptilian, knowing only to show his fangs, hiss and attack. This is why he mocked a physically disabled reporter for the New York Times, why he derided the heroism of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and why he dismissed the authenticity of the Khans, who had lost their son in Iraq.

    This inability to feel the pain of others — even to acknowledge it — is not a minor tick in an otherwise good man. It is the salient characteristic of a sadist, of someone so wrapped up in himself that he has contempt for victims. Trump’s name for them is “losers.” They are the poor and the unlucky. They deserve what they get.

    Trump is not a conservative nor a nationalist nor some reality show creation. He is a mean S.O.B., base in his motives and cruel in his targets and, until he won in November, unthinkable in American history — a brat in the Oval Office. He’s not man enough to throw an arm around a grieving widow. He disgraces his office and will be remembered by history as a lout. It is now a fate he cannot escape. Sorry, but he knew what he was signing up for.”
