Trump saves his worst behavior for women and people of color

I have watched with deepening outrage as President Trump has sunk to new lows by disrespecting the widow of a fallen U.S. soldier.

 In a public spat that has raged for more than a week, Myeshia Johnson, the pregnant widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, along with a family friend, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D., Fla.), have said that Trump, in a condolence call, said Sgt. Johnson “knew what he was signing up for, but I guess it still hurts.”

Trump took issue with their characterization of his comments and attacked the congresswoman, calling her “whacky” on Twitter and in public comments. Then Myeshia Johnson spoke out in a Good Morning America interview, where she agreed with the congresswoman’s assessment of Trump’s remarks.

“Yes, the president said that he knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyway,” Johnson told George Stephanopoulos. “And it made me cry ‘cause I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said he couldn’t remember my husband’s name … if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country, why can’t you remember his name?”
