In response to Kathy Gyngell: We are all victims now – thanks to Harvey the Horrible, TmWe wrote:
This Harvey thing has enabled so many women to have their cake and eat it too. They keep quiet whilst their careers are built, awards won and fan-base gained. And now they can claim victimhood along with the rest of us. What a double bonus . . . and if they now get a huge payout for it, you could really conclude that Harvey was the gift that just kept on giving.
TCW Hero of the Week
No one deserves this tribute more than the oh-so-admirable White House Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, who came out with an impassioned defence of his boss, President Donald Trump. This was after Democrat congresswoman Frederica Wilson revealed she'd listened in on President Trump's condolence call to military widow Myeshia Johnson on speaker-phone, going on to claim the President had made the war widow cry.
Sergeant La David Johnson was one of four US servicemen killed in Niger by Islamist militants this month.
General Kelly said he was so ‘stunned’ by Ms Wilson's attack that he spent more than an hour walking among soldiers' graves at Arlington National Cemetery, just outside Washington.
It is hardly surprising. When his son was killed by a land-mine in Afghanistan in 2010, did he receive a call in sympathy from President Barack Obama? No, sadly not.
TCW Villain of the Week
Our villain of the week, you will not be surprised to hear from reading the above, is the very same Frederica Wilson, who has now earned herself the distinction of politicising the death of an American serviceman and a sympathy phone call made by President Trump to his Gold Star family and making hay with it.
After the horrified General John Kelly, the White House Chief of Staff, who himself has lost a son in combat, asked for respect for such families, Wilson gloated that all the attention had turned her into a rock star. ‘It’s phenomenal, it’s amazing,’ she laughed to reporters. Since, she has stooped to a new low, calling Trump a ‘jerk’, and accusing the General of 'trying to keep his job'.
It seems that for the Democrats, in their quest to destroy Trump, not even grieving military families are spared from being used for political gain.
