Sheriff Clarke was more than prepared to fight back after the latest attack from the left on remarks President Trump allegedly made to a fallen soldier’s widow.
Democratic congresswoman Frederica Wilson recently got into a spat with President Trump over her claim that he told the widow of a US serviceman killed in an ambush in Niger that “he knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt.”
Trump fired back by telling reporters:
“I didn’t say what that congresswoman said. Didn’t say it at all. She knows it. And she now is not saying it. I did not say what she said.”
And then he tweeted
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!

Sheriff Clarke then went on FOX News and absolutely annihilated anyone attacking remarks that may have been made by the President in regards to the fallen soldier and his widow.
Here is the video of it:
Sheriff Clarke said whatever was said by the President was taken entirely out of context and said:
“Shame on the Left and anybody who would exploit that thing [President Donald J. Trump’s comments] over the body of a serviceman coming back in a flag-draped coffin.”
Sheriff Clarke is right. What we have going on here is likely a game of telephone being played on what Trump meant by whatever comments he made to the fallen soldier’s widow. And the left is twisting it in a way that makes the President look bad to the public.
Whether or not the public believes Rep. Wilson’s claims is still unclear, however we have seen twisted attacks similar to this in the past and they almost never pan out.
Do you think the left is blowing this out of proportion? Comment your response below!
