Much like many of his other obsessions, Donald Trump can’t let this whole fallen soldiers thing go. Instead of admitting that he has no class and doesn’t give a damn about honoring fallen soldiers, he continues to claim that Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) was lying when she stated that Trump made an extremely insensitive remark to the pregnant widow of a fallen soldier, when he told her that her slain husband “knew what he signed up for.”
Trump has been attacking Wilson since, even though her account has been backed up by the fallen solider’s own mother. Trump even stated that he had “proof” of his innocence, despite the fact that his own White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, reported that there were no recordings of the phone call. Now that he’s running out of ways to defend himself, Trump is coming undone and launching into his typical Twitter rants.
Late last night, Trump posted a tweet that insulted Wilson, calling her “wacky” and attacking the “fake news” media in the process. Trump tweeted:
“The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!”
This man has serious mental issues. Time and time again we’ve seen that instead of focusing on doing his job, Trump instead occupies himself with his Twitter battles – all of which will not actually move the country forward and are pathetic attempts of the egotistical POTUS to make himself look better. Ironically, these attempts just make him appear even worse.
Trump should do us all a favor and just admit that he is incapable of caring about anyone other than himself. That has been the one constant in Trump’s presidency, and the only thing we can be sure of during these erratic times.
