Army Sgt. La David Johnson was a brave hero who died protecting his country far from home. That his death has been politicized is an insult to his memory. The turmoil started with a condolence phone call from President Donald Trump to Johnson’s widow, Myeshia, relayed over a speakerphone. Thereafter, a verbal firefight started. Days of bad press followed, even ensnaring White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired 4-star Marine General. There’re a lot of things to complain about regarding the President, but this isn’t one of them.
My own heart is saddened over White House events this week.
General John Kelly, Donald Trump’s chief of staff, in his desire to help the president make this country great again, is making another decent person, corrupt, yet again.
