Left Attacks Grieving Widow of Navy SEAL Following Trump’s Tribute

In just over 30 days of Trump’s presidency, the left has moved the boundary for despicable behavior to a new level.

But this takes the cake.

Now matter who you are, the sort of gesture Trump made in last night’s speech in honoring an American hero fallen in the line of duty should move any freedom-loving American.

But apparently that’s not enough for the looney left.

Their response is simply unAmerican.

Here’s more from Breitbart

Following Donald Trump’s speech to congress, where he paid tribute to the memory of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens in front of his widow Carryn, leftists attacked the president and the grieving woman, with many describing the moment as “gross [and] shameful.”

Trump praised the efforts of William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in a successful military raid in the terror state of Yemen, as his wife Carryn Owens listened from the balcony.

“I just spoke to our great General Mattis, who reconfirmed that ‘Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy,” Trump said in his speech.

“Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. Thank you,” he continued.

The tribute was followed by a standing ovation from the entire congress, as Owens applauded Trump’s speech during undoubtedly the most emotionally-charged moment of the evening.

Celebrities such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore took the opportunity to criticize the president, with Maher saying he “wished [Owens] hadn’t allowed herself to be used as his prop like that,” while filmmaker Michael Moore claimed it was “a sort of a f you to the people who are criticizing Trump.”

Furthermore, left-wing Twitter users took the opportunity to attack Trump and the grieving widow, seeking to gain political points against Donald Trump in the process.

One twitter user, Dan Grilo, who revealed on his account he was a volunteer for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, said that “Sorry, Owen’s wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.” He has since deleted his account.

Another user, known as the ‘The Literal Media,’ poured scorn over Owen’s appearance, describing her as the “widow of the man Trump had murdered in a needless raid in Yemen.”

Meanwhile, another user by the name of Katherine described it as “heart wrenching to see her raw emotion played on for his theatrics.”

According to media reports, at least two Democrats, Keith Ellison and Debbie Wasserman remained seated as the rest of Congress applauded the woman.
