Default Widow of fallen soldier says viral Facebook post is fake

How depraved must one be to impersonate a grieving widow of a fallen soldier, all just to tell a lie in her name in defense of Donald Trump? This level of partisan hackery, if it's not a new low, has to be on the bottom somewhere.

Quote:
The widow of a soldier who died in Niger earlier this month says a Facebook post circulating under her name defending US President Donald Trump is fake.

Myeshia Johnson says the post criticising Congresswoman Frederica Wilson - who has been in a war of words with Mr Trump - was written by someone claiming to be her.



The death of Sgt La David Johnson received international attention when details of a condolence call made by Mr Trump were shared by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson.

Ms Wilson said the president had told Mrs Johnson her husband knew what he was signing up for, and that the president's remarks were insensitive.

Ms Wilson who represents a Florida district told WPLG, a Miami TV station she overheard the conversation on speakerphone before Sgt Johnson's coffin arrived in his home city of Miami.
"To me, that is something that you can say in a conversation, but you shouldn't say that to a grieving widow," she said.
"And everyone knows when you go to war, you could possibly not come back alive. But you don't remind a grieving widow of that."


At the weekend the story continued with a Facebook post, purportedly written by Sgt Johnson's widow Myeshia accusing Ms Wilson of using her husband's death to further her own political gain, being widely shared.

"I'm getting sick of this politician using my husband as a political platform," read the post: "Even by her own words she did not hear all of the conversation she only heard part of it."

On Twitter, the post had been attached as an image to a tweet that has been deleted but is still being shared as a screenshot.

Fact checking site Snopes explains that while the date of the post corresponds with the day President Trump made the call to Mrs Johnson, the time does not: "The time listed is actually more than an hour before the reported time of President Trump's phone call, which was 4.45pm Eastern time."

In addition the profile picture shows a square image but Facebook introduced an update two months ago changing the shape of users profiles from square to round.

As news emerged that the post had been fabricated social media users shared their views about the latest twist in the story.

"Has Myeshia not suffered enough," posted one Twitter user. Another commented: "I knew it was fake. It sure didn't stop the idiots from thinking it was real and retweeting that garbage".

While another Twitter user called for Facebook to take action: "FB must find who did this and the person or people behind it should be named. Absolutely disgusting."

Can we do the RW thing where we start talking about the "right" doing this? You know, kinda like when a comedienne cuts off the Donalds head in effigy?

The wife is pretty shameless in her own right. She let it slip that Frederica the Liar is a family friend.

anti-Trump widow who is friends with an anti-Trump politician....

So basically nothing either of them say can be believed.

Both of these "women" should be ashamed for using this heroic man's death as political fodder.

Because if you don't like Trump, nothing you say about him can be true?

That's some sad, twisted "logic".

You've also called a grieving war widow the same in so many words, you should be ashamed.

I don't know if the widow was lying or not and I will not accuse her of such. But when you allow the death of your husband to become political fodder, you don't deserve respect. And the fact that she had Wilson with her when she took the call tells me that she was going to use her husbands death to attack the President. That is shameful.

Total left wing set up. The Congress woman was in the car when the phone call came. This was a publicity stunt, yet again by the PARTISAN left wing liars.

Total bullsh1t from the get go. No way would a congress woman be there when a President calls. This was a set up, totally staged event by the left wing idiots who wish to get away with a lie.

The partisan who made the OP is just another of the liars here, and a left wing Id*ot as well.

Regards, Kirk
