In the latest episode of “The Resistance,” host and veteran journalist Keith Olbermann leveled President Donald Trump’s own vulgar insult against him as an indictment against his mistreatment of a Gold Star widow.
“Our son of a b*tch president has, in effect, called a newly widowed military wife a liar,” Olbermann said of the latest installment of Trump’s feud with war widow Myeisha Johnson.
Johnson, whose husband La David died in the controversial ISIS ambush in Niger earlier this month, said the president could not remember her husband’s name. Trump responded almost immediately on Twitter, saying he and Johnson had a “very respectful conversation” and that he “spoke [La David’s] name without hesitation.”
I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!

The Johnson widow witnessed “Trump’s disgusting disrespect for our country’s flag,” Olbermann said, once again referencing the president’s insults leveled at protesting NFL players.
