A woman who lost her fiancé 14 years ago after he was killed in Iraq went on CNN Monday to shred President Donald Trump’s reported disparagement of military servicemembers.

Dana Canedy, a former New York Times journalist whose fiancé, First Sgt. Charles Monroe King, died in Iraq in 2006, told CNN’s Erica Hill that she was disgusted by the president’s reported descriptions of dead American soldiers as “losers” and “suckers.”

“I obviously heard the reports first and was really struggling with the fact that anybody could say that,” she said. “And he’s denied it, I don’t know whether he said it or not, but even the possibility of that is just horrible.”

Canedy then said that hearing about the president’s remarks has been particularly hard for her 14-year-old son Jordan, who was only 6 months old when his father was killed.

“He heard it and turned to me with his big, beautiful eyes and he said, ‘Mom, is he talking about my dad?'” she explained. “I won’t let anyone diminish the service that Charles or any other servicemember gave… for this country.”

U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled Thursday that one of President Donald Trump's "blue ribbon panels" broke public meetings laws, reported Politico.

The law enforcement panel violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, according to the federal court judge, by only allowing law enforcement on the commission and by holding meetings in secret.

"The commission’s final report was set to go to Attorney General William Barr later this month, but Bates said no recommendations can be submitted until the panel remedies the legal violations," Politico reported.

‘Where is this river?’ Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing goes haywire as she’s pressed over bizarre Trump rant

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany struggled on Thursday to back up President Donald Trump's claims that several ballots had been found floating in a river.

The trouble started when Fox News Radio reporter Jon Decker asked McEnany to justify some of the president's wild claims being thrown around about mail-in ballots.

"The other day he said, 'They found a lot of ballots in a river,'" Decker began. "Who is they?"

McEnany claimed that the president was referring to reports that a bag of mail in Wisconsin, which included some absentee ballots, had ended up in a ditch.
