Gold Star Family Thanks the President on CNN


Sheila and Calvin Murphy appeared on CNN 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.

“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.”

Camerota appeared to try to exploit their situation for political gain.

This young man was a member of the elite Army Rangers. He loved his family to the “point of death”, his mother said.

This is heartbreaking. This mom explains this country is “for liberty and justice for all.” She wants the country to unite. These soldiers are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for us to fight terrorism.

She concludes by begging America to remember these great soldiers.

For crying out loud. Now AP is “soliciting” Gold Star families who have spoken to the President. Is there no end to this yellow journalism.

I really hope this perversion of news backfires to where 2018 results in a wipe-out of Democrats and has Trump win 50 states in 2020. THAT would be the ultimate slap in the face of these news perverts.

I’ll preface this by saying I grew up in a household where I Never saw my parents argue with each other. So when I see networks that is mostly bickering I find it disturbing on an emotional level. I know in the 80’s CNN was good for this and after some time I just couldn’t take it any more.

There’s different YouTube channels that are streaming the different news outlets and this evening I happened to catch Fox, which was after Hannity’s special. It’s only be very recent that I found these channels so I don’t know how we come to this. The woman host had two blacks on there and it quickly turned into a bickering match. After Only a few minutes I just had to close it out. Fox Could have had both on separately and we could see what each had to say. But when two are “pitted” together it is bound to end this way. My immediate thought afterwards was, is this some type of human cock fight. WHEN will ALL these news organizations realize THEY are creating every bit of dissension this country is going through. I can’t speak for the other channels but is THIS what the liberals are upset with. The country really needs a sea-change in the way news is presented to the public. It is why I seldom watch Any of those channels and mostly see short clips. Additionally, that is why I “read” most of my news information. I do not want to be “emotionally driven” by some news outlet.
