America, cnn.com, and Donald Trump: Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump @balleralert Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday night, DonLemon fought back tears while reading a letter he wrote to DonaldTrump and the widow of La David Johnson, one of four soldiers who was killed in Niger after an ISIS attack earlier this month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The letter came after Myeshia Johnson told GoodMorningAmerica on Monday that she was angered by Trump's condolence call because he allegedly struggled to remember her husband's name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the interview, Trump responded on Twitter, saying he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Today, when I woke up and saw the emotional interview with grieving gold-star widow my heart was broken like most of you," Lemon said on his CNN show. "And then a moment later the president tweeted and I was shocked. I felt compelled to write an open letter to President Trump and I want to share that letter with you right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Dear Mr. President. I’ve interviewed you multiple times. You’ve introduced me to your family. You’ve also criticized me publicly both in front of cameras and on Twitter. Calling me “hateful,” “dumb,” a “lightweight.” Some of your friends have suggested you expected better of me. I’m not sure why you’d expect anything other than fairness and facts first," Lemon began. "We know you get a lot of your news from TV. Several of your friends and supporters have told me you watch this show. So, since I have this platform, I’d like to speak to you personally right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He later addressed Johnson saying, "To be extremely candid with you and with the world, as a black man I’m always looking for role models who look like me and the latest one I found was your husband, La David." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lemon concluded, "May he rest in peace and may you find peace when you can finally get a good night’s sleep knowing that this is America. We got your back. Believe that. Signed, me — Don Lemon."

Africa, Crazy, and Donald Trump: Trump Tells Pregnant Widow Of Fallen Soldier "He Knew What He Signed Up For" @balleraler 臣111 2 Trump Tells Pregnant Widow Of Fallen Soldier “He Knew What He Signed Up For” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, Sgt. La David T. Johnson of Miami Gardens, the American soldier who was killed in Niger, was saluted in his homecoming at Miami International Airport. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With his casket draped with the American flag and the name of his wife engraved on his chest, the fallen soldier was met with silence and subsequent honor from local politicians and officials. Before being transported to the Fred Hunter’s Funeral Home in Hollywood, his pregnant widow, Myeshia Johnson, leaned over the casket and sobbed at the loss of her husband. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prior the ceremonial homecoming, Donald Trump called Johnson’s pregnant widow to give his condolences. Just days after sparking controversy over his comments falsely claiming Barack Obama and “other presidents” didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers, Trump told Johnson’s widow,” he knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, who was with Myeshia at the time, heard the exchange and was disgusted by Trump’s words. “I think it’s so insensitive. It’s crazy. Why do you need to say that?’’ Wilson asked. “You don’t say that to someone who lost family, the father, the breadwinner. You can say, ‘I’m so sorry for your loss. He’s a hero.’” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’m livid. He can’t even have an open-coffin funeral because his body is so messed up,” she added. According to reports, Johnson was part of a joint mission with the Niger military in west Africa, when he was killed in an ambush on Oct. 4.
