President Donald Trump has been having to deal with a lot of heat based on this attack that he did not do enough to comfort a Gold Star family. As it turns out, this attack is completely fabricated and is only released at the off chance that it could hurt Trump’s support.
Our leader is doing everything he can to help our veterans right now. So the attacks that he is not doing this are very false and hurtful, not only to him but to the families involved.
But luckily Trump has people within his administration that are willing to stand up for him against these disgusting attacks. John Kelly is one of those people. He has taken the podium in recent weeks after not doing so for a very long time. But today it was a little bit different. He stepped up to the podium and asked a very simply question.
He asked reporters to raise their hands if they were a Gold Star parent or sibling. When no one raised their hand, he asked “Does anyone here know a Gold Star parent or sibling?”
He then took and answered questions from the 3 that raise their hands and left. He was not playing around here, folks and it is good to see.
Earlier, he talked about the attacks that came against the president.
“I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning and broken-hearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing. A member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the president of the United States to a young wife. In his way, tried to express that opinion. He’s a brave man, a fallen hero.”
“He knew what he was getting himself into. He enlisted. And he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be, with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken. That was the message. That was the message that was transmitted. It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation. Absolutely stuns me. And I thought at least that was sacred.”
