Another Gold Star Widow Describes Phone Call From Trump — But This One’s Breaking the Narrative
In the aftermath of the October 4th ambush in Niger that took the lives of four US troops, a firestorm of controversy has erupted based on the claims of Myesha Johnson, the widow of one of the four fallen soldiers, and Congresswoman Frederica Wilson. Wilson went on record within a day of President Donald Trump addressing the ambush to say that the pregnant widow of Sgt. La David Johnson had been disrespected by the Commander-in-Chief during a condolence phone call. The President and his Chief of Staff John Kelly both strongly and consistently disputed the version of events Wilson put forward, and now the statement of another military widow appears to prove them right.
Michelle Black, the widow of Special Forces member Bryan Black, who also lost his life in the Niger ambush, told Fox News that her late husband spoke three languages, including the local dialect in Niger, and became a celebrity among locals because he could speak their language.
“I know that I married a true hero, whether it would’ve been on the battlefield or just in life in general.” she said. “When you have true moral integrity and you care that much for other people that you’re willing to put your life on the line. You’re a hero whether it’s over there or here.”
Black then described her call with President Trump, which went much differently than Wilson claims the call with Myesha Johnson went. “I’m very grateful that he called and he spoke to the kids.” the widow shared. “And I think that the excitement from that made it a little better, even if it was just for a minute. So, yeah, he was very gracious, and I appreciate anyone who calls cause, like I said, that takes quite a bit of bravery to call into that kind of situation.”
