The biggest news story last week continues to live on this week as “Good Morning America” opened its show on Monday with an exclusive interview with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of the four Green Berets killed in an ISIS ambush in Niger earlier this month.
Myeshia Johnson spoke out to the media for the first time Monday, to detail her highly-publicized phone call from President Donald J. Trump.
Last week, the media fueled its anti-Trump narrative by giving Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson an inordinate amount of air-time to express her version of the phone call, which she heard first hand because it was conveyed via speakerphone.
Wilson started the media frenzy by claiming Trump rudely told Myeshia Johnson that her husband ‘knew what he signed up for.’
Wilson is a family friend of the Johnsons and was in the limo with the Gold Star widow and her family on the way to the airport to pick up the soldier’s body when Trump made the call.
On Monday, Johnson told “Good Morning America” that Wilson’s account of the story is 100% accurate.
‘Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated. What she said was 100 per cent correct,’ Johnson said. ‘The phone was on speakerphone. Why would we fabricate something like that?’
Johnson went on to say that Trump couldn’t remember her husband’s name during the call and that the communication with the president only made her cry more than she already had. When asked if she had anything to say to Trump during the call, she answered: “No.” When asked if she would like to say anything to him today, she said, “I have nothing to say to him.”
