Rob O'Neill: 'Disgraceful' for Dems, Media to Politicize Trump's Call to Gold Star Widow
Rob O'Neill, the man who killed Usama bin Laden, said it's "disgraceful" that President Donald Trump's call to a Gold Star family is being politicized.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) claimed Tuesday that Trump told the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson during a phone call that "he knew what he signed up for."
Johnson was among four service members killed earlier this month during an ambush in Niger.
O'Neill said Trump's support for the U.S. military has been well-documented, so he believes that Wilson is somehow spinning or misrepresenting his words.
He also criticized the media for immediately running with the story, despite Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders strongly pushing back on Wilson's claims.
"I think it's disgraceful. And the congresswoman should leave it alone and so should the press," O'Neill said.
He added that it's interesting that the left suddenly loves the military when they can use it to attack the president.
"I almost want to hear the president say something about tougher gun control, just the left can start talking about the Second Amendment and how they're pro-gun," O'Neill said. "They're going to do whatever they can to spin it. It's just a shame they're using a Gold Star family for this."
