FLASHBACK: Obama Disrespected Police in 2009, But the Media Was SILENT



The media has been whipped into a frenzy after a Gold Star widow allegedly accused President Trump of disrespecting her late husband by saying the soldier “knew what he signed up for.”
That allegation against Trump, of course, is not proven, but what Obama said to police officers in 2009 is crystal clear, but the media, of course, remained SILENT.
Back in 2009, Obama used nearly identical language when he told police officers that risking their lives was part of the “job you signed up for.”
Obama’s remarks read in part,
The job you signed up for is not easy. It can mean long shifts and late nights. It demands focus, and determination, and great bravery in the face of unknown dangers. When you run into that building or chase down that suspect, you will be risking your own life in order to protect the lives of men and women you have never met, and some that you may never know.
But you knew all that when you joined the academy. You knew the risks involved, you knew the sacrifices required, and yet you stood up and said, ‘I’ll take that risk. I’ll make that sacrifice. I will do that job.’
Florida Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson said that Trump made gold star widow Myeshia Johnson cry when he called her to console her over the loss of Sgt. La David T. Johnson.
Specifically, she accused Trump of saying “something to the fact that he knew what he was getting into when he signed up.”
The media jumped on those comments, often ascribing to them the worst possible intent.
MSNBC’s Rick Tyler said Trump shouldn’t have called Johnson at all.
