Hollywood is speaking out after President Donald Trump allegedly made "insensitive" comments towards the wife of a fallen soldier.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson of Florida said she overheard a phone call POTUS made to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a U.S. soldier killed in Niger by Islamist militants this month. According to her, he told her that her husband "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts."
The president responded to the backlash on Twitter Wednesday morning saying Wilson's comments were completely fabricated, as Wilson herself stood by her account.
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!
Trump mocked McCain for getting captured, attacked a Gold Star family, lied about Obama calling the families of fallen soldiers, and politicized Kelly's son's death. This is not a man burdened by empathy for those who served.
