Another Gold Star Mom Comes Forward, Announces She Was Disrespected by Obama

A Gold Star mother has come forward to talk about how former President Barack Obama disrespected the memory of her son.

Julie Schrock is the mother of Corporal Max Donahue, a Marine who died in 2010 at the age of 23 after being severely injured in Afghanistan.

Recently, she wrote a letter to New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin detailing the mistreatment she received at the hands of the Obama administration.

“I’m a Gold Star mother and it pains me to see what is happening. The media bias is obvious to anyone willing to dig a little deeper than just believing what they hear on the news,” Schrock’s letter read.

“When my son died, then President Obama not only made no effort to reach out, but the condolence letter we received was signed by a computer,” she added.

Schrock claimed Obama didn’t even bother to sign the letter.

“Then, when I received multiple copies of the letter, I was told there was a computer ‘glitch’ that wasn’t fixed yet so more would probably keep coming and I should just throw them away. Not even a Sorry!”

Schrock said she anonymously reported this to her local news station, but they only reported it once “versus the three days of Trump mishandling of a Gold star condolence.”

She said that was “sad and hurtful to say the least.”

Treatment of Gold Star families was thrust into the spotlight after Trump claimed during a news conference earlier this month that Obama didn’t make phone calls to the families of fallen soldiers.

“President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls,” Trump said. “I call when it’s appropriate.”

However, this comment sparked a backlash that further intensified when Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida claimed Trump was disrespectful during his phone conversation with Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was one of four soldiers killed in an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger carried out by fighters affiliated with the Islamic State group.

“He knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway,” Wilson claimed Trump said.

“Yeah, he said that,” Wilson said. “So insensitive. He should not have said that — he shouldn’t have said it.”

In response, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly came out to defend the president’s call, indicating that Wilson’s account was somewhat fabricated.

Kelly, a Gold Star father himself, had advised Trump on what to say during the phone call.

“He was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be, with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken,” Kelly said. “That was the message. That was the message that was transmitted. (For more from the author of “Another Gold Star Mom Comes Forward, Announces She Was Disrespected by Obama” please click HERE)
