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.
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.”
