Alisyn Camerota brought on fallen hero Etienne Murphy, 22, who died in Syria and out of left field brought up the fact that Trump didn’t call them with condolences.
Thankfully, Etienne’s grieving mother Sheila Murphy hit the nail on the head against Camerota’s remark through the tears.
“No I haven’t but it’s OK,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if I hear from the White House or not because it’s not really … about a call or letter.”
This makes me even prouder of this country than I could imagine. Of course, I wish Etienne Murphy was still with us, as I would any Gold Star hero but it’s clear to me that this family, still through their grief, can manage to formulate this rational sort of thinking.
God bless you, your family, and your son Sheila Murphy.
In a never ending quest to criticize President Donald Trump, CNN brought on the parents of another Gold Star family whose son was killed in action. And it made for a heart-wrenching interview.
Sheila and Calvin Murphy appeared on the network to discuss their son, Etienne Murphy, 22, who died in Syria.
Host Alisyn Camerota attempted to bait Sheila Murphy by asking if she had received a call from president Trump, but Murphy shut the door quick.
For Gold Star families, this isn’t about politics. This isn’t about if President Trump called them or not… you know? They want their child to be back in their lives.
And Mrs. Murphy, just at the very least, wants people to remember her son.
From The Daily Caller:
CNN featured a panel of six Trump supporters (three men, three women) Wednesday morning and despite host Alisyn Camerota’s surprise, they all defended the president and expressed their distrust of the media.
Camerota asked how many panelists were troubled by President Donald Trump’s response to Charlottesville, and not a single panelist raised their hand.
“I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I mean he addressed the problem. Let’s face reality, there are problems on both sides,” panelist Bob Viera said.
“I think it’s ridiculous to have me choose between Hitler and Stalin which is what I consider what both groups are,” he added. “If you’re willing to set fires and burn places to the ground, that doesn’t seem like a very peaceful group to me.”
Another swing and a miss from CNN.
