The flip-flopping is getting harder and harder to track, good people. How did Freeperville react to the incredibly callous and insensitive comments to the wife of Sgt. La David T. Johnson?
Depends on which way the wind’s blowing.
Trump told Widow Soldier ‘Must’ve Known What He Signed Up For’: Rep. [Florida Trump Hater]

I can see him saying this, especially if it was part of the conversation lauding his bravery and desire to do good. My family knows that I have signed up for this and that death could be a possibility.

To: exit82Donald J. TrumpVerified account @realDonaldTrump 4m4 minutes ago Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!
To: exit82You know this is really out of hand. These bastards cannot keep getting away with making up these lies.
It is sick evil and it must be stopped. I think this is the most despicable piece of media inflamed lies that has happened yet.
I cant even put into words the contempt I have for these sickos. I hope they all burn in hell – McCain can go first.
“He was told he has to do this. He doesn’t really understand why, except that people are giving him shiat because he hadn’t done it yet. He doesn’t have any concept of consolation, because it involves speaking to people about things that don’t involve him.
So he said whatever came into his head. The idea that he had to say words that would somehow assuage this woman’s loss or give meaning to her husband’s death is an utterly alien concept to him.
Now to be fair, there are no such words, and even those of us blessed with empathy wouldn’t be able to manage more than say, “I am sorry for your loss” or “The world is better for his sacrifice” or something equally empty-sounding. But at least those with empathy would understand and feel the emptiness and futility of the gesture. Trump probably hung up the phone and forgot about it within moments, simply relieved that he got it over with so he could go back to watching Fox and Friends tell him what a great job he is doing.”
Now – on to the next bit of hypocrisy.
I don’t have to remind you readers of how the Freeperati once worshiped the ground Dubya walked on, do I? Or the relentless Free Republic purges of anyone who DARED to question the Golden Child?
Oh, what the hell – a little refresher :

Posted on 9/2/2002, 8:41:24 PM by rintenseTo: admiralsnI got to see some of President Bushes speech in soundbites today and were they ever tasty. He looks great!
To: rintenseGreat pics……Great strut……..Great grin………GREAT PRESIDENT!!!
To: rintenseWOW oh WOW!!!I LOVE THESE PHOTOS TODAY!!!!!!!! Just LOVE THEM!
The top picture in post nine-the one where our President stands between an elderly man holding his US flag and an elderly woman, who is absolutely tickled pink, has taken my heart up many steps. It is now my newest wallpaper and I look forward to seeing this miraculous photo of genuine comradery and patriotism and joy and concern and love every time I log-on.
And pittsburg gop guy’s next to the last pic posted in post #30, the one where GW is signing autographs as arms reach out to touch him, hand him anything to sign and as pure pleasure can be seen on so many, many faces, is truly unique. I have never seen a photo capture that look on our President before….he looks to be about 30 years old in that photo…
What a WONDERFUL DAY! How lucky we are. How truly blessed we are….And how grateful I am for your faithfulness to this thread. Don’t know exactly why-but tonight I’m absolutely happily weepy reviewing our President’s day tonight. Again….. WOW!!!!!!!
Former White House adviser Steve Bannon says there has not been a more destructive presidency than George W. Bush’s.
Bannon delivered a scathing criticism of the former president after Bush this week denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics, warning that the rise of “nativism,” isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation’s true identity.
Bannon told a capacity crowd at a California Republican convention in Anaheim that Bush “embarrassed himself.”
In his remarks in New York, Bush warned of a nation in which discourse has been degraded by “casual cruelty,” where bigotry is emboldened.
Bannon says Bush has no idea whether “he is coming or going, just like it was when he was president.”
To: stars & stripes foreverGlad we don’t have to defend this guy anymore.

― Belinda Jeffrey,
“His drunken behavior at the memorial for the five slain Dallas policemen was disgraceful.”
Really? I must have missed that…maybe he knew the cop killing operations were being run out of the o’muslim white house.
W. was not the worst president.
True dat. The Darnold has kinda knocked that one out of the park.
In comparison with Obama and Clinton he was a great president.
But that is a very low standard.
Apparently, “low” is the only kind of standard Republicans have these days,
He could have been a great president but failed to rise to the occasion.
He kept his mouth shut during Obama’s demolition of the nation, but decided recently he is ready to get back in the limelight.
He should be supporting Trump, not criticizing.
W. is not the man I thought he was.
To: Republic; pittsburgh gop guyRepublic:
You captured my feelings exactly!!! We are truly blessed to have this godly/charismatic man as our president [Sometimes I get so immersed in the political minutia that I forget to sit back and just enjoy the fact that ‘W’ is in the Whitehouse!]
