The mainstream media has been gleefully ripping President Trump to shreds over some comments he allegedly made on the phone with the widow of a special forces soldier ambushed by ISIS in Niger, but the kind of attitude and disrespect he’s being accused of is a night and day difference from the story another widow is telling.
Trump has been in a Twitter battle with the previous widow, Myesha Johnson, and a Florida Democratic lawmaker who is desperate for a few minutes in the limelight.
The president was accused of forgetting Johnson’s name on the phone and of saying “he knew what he signed up for.”

But Michelle Black’s husband, Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, was killed alongside Sgt. La David Johnson and two other soldiers during an ambush by ISIS terrorists on Oct. 4. While Johnson and Rep. Frederica Wilson claim Trump was dismissive and even forgot Sgt. Johnson’s name in a condolence call, Black says the president was “gracious” when they spoke.
“I’m very grateful that he called and he spoke to the kids. And I think that the excitement from that made it a little better, even if it was just for a minute,” she said to Fox News.
“He was very gracious and I appreciate anyone who calls because, like I said, that takes quite a bit of bravery to call into that kind of situation.”
Black said she’s focusing on her sons, 9 and 11, since the death of her husband. And rather than berate the president, Black is also keeping the spotlight on her husband, who gave his life in service of America.
“I know that I married a true hero, whether it would’ve been on the battlefield or just in life in general. 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,” she said. “You’re a hero whether it’s over there or here.”
Strangely, the mainstream media is nowhere to be found to capture Black’s experience with the president. Is it possible that the supposed bastions of truth and objectivity are actually just corrupt left-leaning propaganda arms?
Of course they are, and since Black had a positive experience with the president, they aren’t going to cover it. After all, it doesn’t fit their narrative.
We all know truly objective media is a myth that has never existed, but journalists back in the day used to at least try to be somewhat objective and present the facts.
Alas, those days are long over.
