The widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, Myeshia Johnson, found herself in the middle of a Presidential debacle, as Trump first insulted her on a condolence call, and then lied about what happened.

But the president isn’t the only Republican going after the widow of a fallen soldier. Former Congressman Joe Walsh came to his defense, Tweeting:



After the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson described president Trump stumbling over her husband’s name and having to check a report to get it right, Trump tweeted:

Walsh is trying to change the discussion from Trump being insensitive to a Gold Star Widow—and lying about it—to complaining about the politics of it.
