John Kelly was furious that tRUMP used his dead son in his
Thu Oct 19, 2017 2:16am

nonsense claims that Obama, Bush, Clinton, et al did NOT call, write to, or otherwise contact the families of slain soldiers. He also confirmed that Obama DID invite he & his wife to a Gold Star Family private event along with some other Gold Star Families. Obama did not CALL him, he met with them personally. However, he did make phone calls to other families and went to visit injured soldiers and attended the return of soldiers' bodies to the USA. The same for GWB & Clinton and others before them.

tRUMP is simply a bald-faced liar.

NOW he's attacking ANOTHER Gold Star Family because he doesn't have a lick of sense.

  • tRUMP doesn't know when to just STFU.
