Once again you have the right to free speech, but you must take responsibility for the consequences of your words.
I mean no disrespect to Mrs Owens or anyone else ever invited to a SOTU/Joint Session event, but you are there for a reason. The camera feed focuses on you for a reason.. That being an emotional statement for people to understand/remember that moment in the speech.
But it’s not just the POTUS invites, it’s ALL invites by members of Congress as well. There’s a reason “Mrs Jones,” the single mom of two busting her ass working two jobs to keep a roof over her head while attending night school is invited by a DEM or so on.
They wouldn’t know you in a crowd unless there was a reason.- PB/TK
Former Clinton Volunteer Who Slammed Navy SEAL Widow At Trump’s Speech To Congress Fired From Job – Matt Vespa Posted: Mar 02, 2017
Carryn Owens, the widow of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens who was killed in action in Yemen back in January, was given a two-minute standing ovation. It was the longest standing ovation of the night and it was much deserved. Yet, on Twitter, some liberals viewed this (wrongly) as exploitation. It seems that Trump Derangement Syndrome is a horrible affliction and for one former Clinton volunteer—it cost him his job.
When President Trump honored Carryn Owens and her late husband in his speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, Dan Grilo tweeted, “Sorry, Owens’ wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.” He was commenting on The Los Angeles Times’ Matt Pearce and his tweet about the remark that many, including Obamaite Van Jones, said was the highlight of the address and showed that Trump could become a unifying force for the country. Nothing says class like going after the widow of an American hero. Grilo apologized for the tweet, then protected his Twitter account, and then deleted his account altogether, but the Internet is forever.
