When President Trump said he was told that President Obama didn’t often call the families of fallen soldiers, he was instantly attacked.
The liberal media blasted President Trump as a liar and claimed that Obama always called the families of deceased service members.
As usual, the liberal media is wrong and Trump is right!
NOT ONLY DID OBAMA NOT CALL THE FAMILIES OF MANY MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN, HE EVEN WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO DISRESPECT THEM.
After 5 service members were killed in Chattanooga Tennessee by jihadi gunman Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez, former President Obama didn’t call ANY of their families.
Cathy Wells, the mother of murdered Marine Skip Wells, went on Hannity to tell her story.
Cathy told Sean she has not received a call from President Obama.
Sean Hannity: Have you heard from the president?
Hannity: Does that surprise you?
Hannity: Tell us what you would say to this president. This is the Commander in Chief, statements about Ramadan, you got the White House in beautiful rainbow colors.
Cathy Wells:I can’t answer that, Sean. I can’t answer that.
In another case, Obama took his disrespect for Gold Star families a step further and REFUSED to honor the requests from the families of 30 soldiers who were killed in action.
Karen Vaughn, the mother of Aaron Vaughn, a Navy SEAL who was killed in Afghanistan, told CNN:
“When my son was killed, he was killed in the largest loss of life in the history of Naval Special Warfare, and we had 30 families at Dover Air Base waiting for our sons’ bodies to be returned from Afghanistan.
What we experienced there was … the families unanimously asked Barack Obama to not bring any media, to not make this a media event, that he was welcome to be with us but no media. And you know, he showed up with cameras, and the next day our pictures or his picture saluting the caskets of our boys was plastered over every outlet in America.”
These are just a few of MANY cases when former President Obama ignored, offended or even lied to Gold Star families (see Benghazi).
There is a reason why a majority of Military members disapproved of Obama. He constantly treated our troops like garbage.
Thank God those days are over and our troops finally have a Commander in Chief who respects them!
