Internet Explodes After Trump Calls Gold Star Widow a Liar

La David Johnson spoke out for the first time Monday, after the combat death of her husband led to a political fight between President Trump and a Florida congresswoman.

"I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name, and that's what hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country why can't you remember his name", she said. La David Johnson, 25, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, 35, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, 39, and Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, 29 - were killed in the ambush.

Johnson said she was distraught over Trump's alleged oversights during the call, which came as the Johnson family and Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Florida, who is a friend of the family, rode in a limo to receive Johnson's body from Dover Air Force Base.

His version contradicted Johnson's widow's account of their conversation last week.

Trump shot back that Wilson had "totally fabricated" the account, but the soldier's widow and aunt confirmed it as true.

The 51-year-old journalist, who had also mentioned at the beginning of his open letter that he'd also suffered very public criticism from Trump on camera and on Twitter, urged the president to imagine what it was like if Tiffany or Ivanka were in Mrs Johnson's shoes.

Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Johnson.

"[I was] very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse", Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America" about her conversation with the president, adding she has "nothing to say" to him. "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

Wilson's account of the phone call was "100 percent correct", Johnson told George Stephanopoulos Monday on Good Morning America. Sgt. Johnson and three comrades died October 4 in Africa when militants tied to the Islamic State attacked them.

Johnson's GMA appearance comes during a swirling political debate over the circumstances of the death of her husband and three other USA soldiers in Niger.

"They won't show me a finger, a hand. I don't know anything".

Trump continued the quarrel Saturday morning on Twitter, calling Wilson "wacky".

She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body. "A couple of days later is when they told me he went from missing to killed in action".
