Video: Trump Calls Widow of Fallen Soldier

Video: Trump Calls Widow of Fallen Soldier

“It was a moment of niceness that we needed because we were going through hell”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIQp0Cfm-zw

In the midst of a completely unnecessary controversy over President Trump’s phone calls to the widows of fallen soldiers, Natasha De Alencar, released video of a phone call she received from President Trump.

From the New York Post:

The widow of a fallen soldier has released a recording of her call with President Trump — and she says he did a great job as consoler-in-chief.

“At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn’t know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human,” Natasha De Alencar told the Washington Post.

De Alencar’s husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark De Alencar, was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on April 8, and Trump made the call four days later.

In the footage of the four-minute call, recorded by one of their four kids, Trump says he’s sorry about the “whole situation” and calls her husband “an unbelievable hero.”

He later invites her to the White House next time she is in DC.

“It was a moment of niceness that we needed because we were going through hell,” De Alencar told The Post.

We grieve with the family of the soldier who was killed. To know the President helped this family cope is special.
Now, they felt they had to share this private moment with the world in order to help the President. This shows how wonderful this family is and how much they care for their country.

Their actions are in stark contrast to the evil progressives who take a kind action to honor a fallen soldier and turn it into a hateful political attack.

Just when you think these people could not go any lower, they show that their capacity for hate and evil knows no bounds.

Rep. Wilson obviously thinks that Sgt. Johnson somehow did not know what he signed up for, which is absurd and insults his brave decision to serve in Special Forces. No one holds a gun to your head to apply for Special Forces, and after you do apply you are sent through rigorous training designed to weed out most applicants — anyone who doesn’t want to be there can easily drop out. Most people would be comforted knowing a loved one died in the course of doing a vital job that he was great at and loved doing. I suspect Wilson saw an opportunity to put an anti-Trump spin on a nice story. She is a real skank for preying on this soldier’s family.

That’s pretty amazing.

And unpackaged, which I think is the problem for the liberal media: Trump connects with people, respects them all, and calls it like he sees it, in direct contrast to the prepackaged horseshit of Obama.

We are so accustomed to the technology/marketing age messaging themes, and Trump blows all of that out of the water.

This is leadership.

    this reply is also to the previous posters.
    Pres Trump has always honored the military and their families.

    what a shame the MSM do not and grabs at any excuse to cry Raaayyycisssm.

Death notifications and messages of condolence have always been considered private. Any political official who broadcasts such a message is always considered gauche and intemperate. It indicates a lack of compassion for the bereaved relatives of the deceased. It is simply something which is not done. If President Trump had gone on l;ive television and broadcast his message to Mrs. Johnson, he would have castigated for politicizing the death of an honorable soldier for his own gain. However, it is apparently all right for someone who opposes the President to politicize circumstances around the death of such a soldier and the bereavement of his family for their gain.

I have dealt with the fact that using dead soldiers for political purposes is not only highly disrespectful to the soldier but that soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines do not like it. However, there is another reason why this case is so troubling. That is because apparently a double standard exists with regard to the President and to his opposition. The President is not allowed to say anything which can be misconstrued or spun in such a way as to make it seem objectionable to someone; anyone. However, it seems to be perfectly acceptable for the President’s opponents to say ANYTHING that they wish regardless of whether it is true or even in good taste. It is a lot like forcing one person to pay $100 to get into a concert, while everyone else gets in for free. When did we become a nation who not only accepts, but elevates bullies?

The President called the bereaved wife of a fallen serviceman to express his condolences. From all reports, including that of the Congresswoman and the mother-in-law of the fallen soldier, none of the Presidents words, as reported, should have caused a reasonable person offense. No report has been made of the President laughing or making rule or unseemly noises. Yet, for some reason we are supposed to believe that this call was offensive? Really? How low is this country going to stoop? Civilization requires civility to survive.

    This military retiree believes the Commander in Chief was honestly expressing his true feelings in this phone call, and in any other condolence calls he has made. His words were gentle and obviously a comfort to the widow. It is the hardest duty a soldier can perform, which I know from experience having been part of more than one funeral honor guard.

    Donald Trump has always shown a great deal of respect for and appreciation of those who volunteer to serve, and as President Trump he is simply continuing; anyone who believes he is doing this for political motives is ignorant and needs to do their homework.

Regarding the video: I am emotional and humbled by both Trump and Natasha.

Regarding the Democrats and the MSM and Wilson in particular: I cannot come up with anything to write that is clean enough to display here about those subhumans. They have no lower limits.

It absolutely was unnecessary for Pres. Trump to politicize presidential condolences to gold star families on Monday.

    and yet you found it necessary to be a dishonest douche bag here…

    as a disabled vet, who lost lots of fellow Soldiers in peacetime, let alone war, allow me to suggest that you #EABOD, then go #FOADIAF.

    no love, me.

      Awing1 in reply to redc1c4. | October 20, 2017 at 10:25 pm

      Dishonest is claiming that Pres. Trump didn’t politicize this.

      Q Why haven’t we heard anything from you so far about the Soldiers that were killed in Niger? And what do you have to say about that?

      THE PRESIDENT: I’ve written them personal letters. They’ve been sent, or they’re going out tonight, but they were written during the weekend. I will, at some point during the period of time, call the parents and the families — because I have done that, traditionally. I felt very, very badly about that. I always feel badly. It’s the toughest — the toughest calls I have to make are the calls where this happens, soldiers are killed. It’s a very difficult thing. Now, it gets to a point where, you know, you make four or five of them in one day — it’s a very, very tough day. For me, that’s by far the toughest.

      So, the traditional way — if you look at President Obama and other Presidents, most of them didn’t make calls, a lot of them didn’t make calls. I like to call when it’s appropriate, when I think I’m able to do it. They have made the ultimate sacrifice.

      So, generally, I would say that I like to call. I’m going to be calling them. I want a little time to pass. I’m going to be calling them. I have — as you know, since I’ve been President, I have.

      But in addition, I actually wrote letters individually to the soldiers we’re talking about, and they’re going to be going out either today or tomorrow.

      Yes.

      That was Monday, before anybody had asked him anything about condolences to gold star families.

        I’m confused by your stupidity.

        Is making a prepackaged bullshit excuse like “The death of our ambassador was caused by an internet video” what you expected in the Niger incident?

        Or are you the hapless press agent for Parasite Rodeo Clown?

        Walker Evans in reply to Awing1. | October 21, 2017 at 3:39 pm

        He was responding to a direct question, numbskull! Or do you believe he had a reporter plant that question ala Hillary’s “unscripted” debate questions? Before you answer bear in mind that this was an MSM reporter, one of those sworn to do anything up to and including spreading known lies in order to get President Trump out of office!

          The only question he was asked was about his public comments. It was not at all about the families. It’s right there, who do you expect to convince by lying about something so obvious?

        Milhouse in reply to Awing1. | October 22, 2017 at 2:46 am

        How is it “politicizing” to mention the fact that it was not the practice of previous presidents to make such calls? There’s nothing political in his statement, just an explanation that he has adopted this practice even though it wasn’t done before him.

        regulus arcturus in reply to Awing1. | October 23, 2017 at 11:13 am

        No, Congressthing Wilson politicized the entire incident with her actions.

        You are exceedingly dishonest to suggest otherwise.

        Answer my question: For which DNC mouthpiece do you work?

      Old0311 in reply to redc1c4. | October 21, 2017 at 9:59 am

      I thought he should ESAD, but he might not be a cannibal.

    Trump announced a change of priority for American presidents re respecting our war dead, instead of obama and clinton’s humilation of them.

    The days of a GOP president like George Bush hanging his ass in the air for the democrat media’s target practice are over.

    There will be a lot of casualties in returning America to sanity. Soros’ 18 billion dollar sedition fund will likely create great violence in our country. But it will end, with antifa thugs being wiped out. The NFL will disappear, but it will be replaced by another league or sport. Hillary Clinton will either go to jail or finally drop dead. Obama will be exposed for the corrupt fraud he is. Mueller will be fired and humiliated, and exposed for the corrupt fraud he is. AG Sessions will be humiliated out of office and replaced by a Trumpian figher. Paul Ryan will get booted out of office. McConnell will be swept aside.

    Hilary Clinton was almost elected on the heels of a complete gansterization of our government after 8 years of obama/jarrett and boehner/mcconnell. The left screwed up and trusted Clinton’s competence. The GOPe believed its own arrogance. A tragedy we were facing baecame a comedy of democrat and GOPe errors.

    Donald Trump is president. The darkest days are behind us. We’re in for some serious battles, but we’ll win the war.

    Stay the course: starve the GOPe out of existence, and support Trump as if your freedom and your way of life depended on it.

      Except that his claim that this was a change, that this was different from past presidents, was false, as he himself later acknowledged.

      This is politicization of presidential condolences, plain and simple. All you’re doing is trying, and failing, to justify it.

President Trump and Natasha do our nation proud.

As far as Trump purportedly telling La David Johnson’s wife that he knew what he was signing up for, he may have said it, but that’s not Trump. That’s career military . . . from long before Obama started letting in gang members, high school dropouts, and felons. It sounds like Kelly to me, and Trump just can’t pull that off because he doesn’t get that mindset. He doesn’t speak other people’s truth nearly as well as he speaks his own.

He will learn from this and stick to following his own instincts and heart, as he does in this phone call.

    anyone who ever raises their right hand, swears the oath, and signs at the bottom of the contract, knows that they have signed a check, in blood, payable to the American people, “…for any amount, up to and including my life.”

    G*d Damn these scum who try to cheapen that. i wouldn’t void my bladder on you if you were lying in the gutter on fire.

      Agreed. But the fact is that there are a lot of people who actually believe that the military is not about patriotism, valor, or protecting our nation but about getting a free college education and even formal training to bring back to their street gangs. They don’t want to and are unwilling to die for RAAACIST America and its “genocides” and “oppressions.”

        DINORightMarie in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | October 21, 2017 at 1:48 am

        I suppose that is true, of some who sign up, but not of those who go into Special Forces. They have made a very intentional decision to go to the next level, and the family of that soldier knows that.

        This is all about Democrats trying to seize on a moment to Alinsky-ize it. If they hadn’t shown their true purpose by going immediately into the “this could be Trump’s Benghazi” false equivalence, then I might believe that the this is about another faux pas on Trump’s part. But it is not; it is just another chapter in the “get Trump!” mission that every leftist embraced which commenced the moment Trump became president-elect.

        The brave man who perished deserved to be honored, his family to be comforted; the Commander in Chief calling the grieving family should have been just that – and, kept private. A Democrat Congresswoman who has been known for YEARS to be a hack, is dancing on his grave, on his valor. She is a disgrace, more so now than before. She decided this was a moment to “not let go to waste” and thus dragged this young man’s bravery and memory into politics for HER limelight moment. Disgusting beyond words, IMHO.

        (On a side note, the Democrats trying to push this “Trump’s Benghazi” angle is a backhanded admission that Benghazi was a blemish on both Obama and Hillary, which should now be investigated in-depth, in my opinion.)

I hope this us real and not fake news;

    My favorite part, “Even buy her own words….”

    Those little homonyms sure are tricky.

      Awing1 in reply to bour3. | October 21, 2017 at 4:27 pm

      I would guess that was the fraudster’s attempt to make it seem more believable.

      It’s obviously fake, given that 1) Facebook has forced round profile picture thumbnails for all applications since August, and more importantly 2) the timestamp is from an hour before the call even took place.

” he knew what he was signing up for…”

Intentionally taken out of context by the left for consumption by useful idiots.

The wearing of plastic, shiny, red plastic cowoboy hats sitting on a dumb, fat woman’s head has just replaced the tin-foil hat as a sign of an idiot.

    regulus arcturus in reply to TheFineReport.com. | October 21, 2017 at 2:42 am

    I thought her sponsor was Bud Light.

    This same congresswoman who wears the shiny red cowboy hat, later said that she was insulted by a phrase Kelly used in his response (about how an empty barrel makes the moist noise). She did not know what this phrase meant so she declared it and Kelly to be racist and then went to go look it up to see what it meant. I assume this now means that should you say something to someone in Congress who is an ethnic minority that is over their intellectual head, then you are guilty of being a racist. Perhaps this is the real reason why Dr. Suess was declared racist.
