Every day the Dotard-In-Chief finds a new way to demonstrate that he’s a detestable lying scumbag.
The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump said Tuesday that anyone with questions of whether former President Barack Obama called the families of fallen service members can ask White House chief of staff John Kelly if he received a phone call from Obama.
“I think I’ve called every family of someone who’s died,” Trump told Fox News radio host Brian Kilmeade. “As far as other representatives, I don’t know. You could ask Gen. Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?” Kelly’s son, Marine 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly, was killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2010.
Ned Price, spokesman and senior director for the National Security Council under Obama, blasted Trump’s “inane cruelty” for bringing up the death of Kelly’s son in order to bash Obama.
Kelly, a man of honor & decency, should stop this inane cruelty. He saw up-close just how—& how much—Obama cared for the fallen’s families. https://t.co/5NPTKHsd1Z

History will note, Trump dodged his failure to address the deaths of Green Berets by lying about President Obama. https://t.co/WB7WFISZ5T

Trump is using Kelly’s son’s blood as partisan war paint, and still Kelly will not resign. https://t.co/CgkNBX9UEb

Wonder how General Kelly feels about Trump using his deceased son as a political pawn this morning https://t.co/yxnje9mYfV

Trump just used John Kelly’s dead son to try & prove Obama didn’t call families of fallen soldiers—If I were Kelly I’d resign—this is awful. https://t.co/yT4iKlGiC9
