CNN and the Democrats had a great deal of success last fall trotting out a Gold Star father named Khizr Khan and using him to try to berate then-candidate Donald Trump for somehow not being patriotic.
Liberals have been trying to find any angle possible to attack Trump now that he’s president, and they decided to trot out another pair of Gold Star parents to try to replicate their smear from 2016. Thankfully, this time it backfired on them on live TV.
CNN host Alisyn Camerota had African-American Gold Star parents Sheila and Calvin Murphy on her show. Their 22 year old son Etienne died while serving in Syria. Alisyn attempted to use these grieving parents to insult the president, and asked them if Trump had given them a call. She did not get the answer she clearly wanted.
Replied Sheila, “No I haven’t but it’s OK. It doesn’t matter if I hear from the White House or not, because it’s not really … about a call or letter.” She added, “The worst thing I have ever been called is a Gold Star mom.”
Camerota tried again, baiting them by asking, “I know that you, you wrote a letter to the White House, I think. What did you want the president to know about your son?” Again, Sheila did not bite, saying, “I just wanted him to not forget my son. And I actually thank President Trump for ordering the air strike in Syria but it wasn’t enough to save my child. I have no hard feelings towards anyone.” Are you glad this grieving woman stood up for her son’s memory and did not allow his death to be used as a liberal prop? Watch below:
