Myeshia in the age of ugly

Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, appeared on Good Morning America today to speak about her late husband, as well as the phone call she received from the president. Here’s a segment …

So, for me, this seems to be a pretty basic one: Soldier dies, government doesn’t really acknowledge his death or explain what happens in Niger. Widow receives a call from the president, who is as classless as usual. Congresswoman in the car speaks out about president’s awfulness, then widow backs it up.

I mean, what’s to debate or argue? Even if you love Donald Trump, is it wrong to say, “Jesus, he screwed that one up?”

Really what do you expect from Twitter and Facebook “news”. While this garbage was circulating on social media this morning most everyone with a brain and some judgement was at work. No offense but think about the domain you are participating in.
