  UPDATED 12:25 p.m. with additional comments and corrections:

WASHINGTON D.C. - President Donald Trump fired back at those who say he spoke rudely to the widow of a serviceman on Tuesday.

"I didn't say what that congresswoman said; didn't say it all.  She knows it.  And she now is not saying it.  I did not say what she said, and I’d like her to make the statement again because I did not say what she said.  I had a very nice conversation with the woman, with the wife who was - sounded like a lovely woman.  Did not say what the congresswoman said, and most people aren’t too surprised to hear that," Trump said in a pool spray following a Senate Finance meeting today.

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Fla) said in an interview that Trump told the widow of a serviceman killed in Niger that "he knew what he signed up for."

The mother of the serviceman also said the president disrespected the dead soldier."President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband," Cawanda Jones-Johnson told The Washington Post

 According to a source close to the president, President Donald Trump was "misunderstood" in his comments to an army widow, and only meant to console her - though an early morning tweet issued by the president bypassed his condolences to tear into Congresswoman Wilson.

"This president cares deeply. Maybe he said something that was misunderstood, but he certainly cares about fallen servicemen and women," the source said speaking on background.

It is the first indication from anyone in the administration the president misspoke when speaking with U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow Tuesday.
President Donald Trump tweeted “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!
Trump’s call to Myeshia Johnson’s, who is pregnant and mother to his surviving two-year-old son and six-year-old daughter came at 4:45 p.m. before Johnson’s remains arrived at Miami International Airport on a commercial flight.
The President’s actions came after reporters in the White House press corps pressed the president Monday on why he had yet to reach out to the family of soldiers recently killed in Niger.
Saying former President Obama failed to call the family of killed servicemen, Trump walked that remark back after NBC reporter Peter Alexander pressed him on the issue.
"I will, at some point, during the period of time, call the parents and the families, because I have done that, traditionally," Trump said during a joint news conference with Senator Mitch McConnell Monday on the back steps of the Oval Office outside of the Rose Garden.

"I probably would have hung up on him," Christina Ayube said bluntly.
Ayube, a Gold-Star mother from Salem, Mass. lost her son, Army Sgt. James Ayube December 8, 2010.
Sgt. Ayube, an army medic was on patrol when an elderly man approached him and another soldier and detonated a suicide bomb that also killed the two soldiers.

Standing for Hypocrisy - tough room!

I immediately said “Tough room” in my best Rodney Dangerfield impression. I got a laugh, but I didn’t do it loud enough to disrupt anything. Perhaps I should have.

Tom Petty and President Trump's ultimate con job

The key to understanding President Trump is in realizing that nothing he or his administration does or says is as it seems.
He tells his staff they should let people think he’s crazy. His Christian spokesperson tells us it isn’t time for gun legislation that could have the very Christian outcome of saving lives because it’s time for Christian mourning of the victims from the latest and deadliest in a long line of mass murders.

The Ride of the Valkyries on the South Lawn

DK6lVU5UQAAlxhSTelling us in the Rose Garden on Tuesday that he would cut taxes “tremendously” for the Middle Class, President Donald Trump seemed satisfied he had put to bed rumors that he was putting his faith in tax cuts that would benefit the rich.
Thursday Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn said he couldn’t guarantee some middle class families wouldn’t pay more in taxes under the plan. He also said Americans are so self centered they’re only worried about how much they have to pay- not how much others (i.e. the richest) pay. “How much goes in their pockets versus how much goes to the government?” Cohn said. True, but we also want to know how much we’re paying or keeping versus how much the rich get to keep.

President Trump is no Super Hero

trumpnmePresident Donald Trump is the rabble rouser still looking for his Super Hero moment.
We all want one. I remember mine well. I was delivering pizzas in college and had just left a girl’s dorm at Stevens College and was running down an icy sidewalk. I hit a short flight of stairs and jumped to the bottom only to slip and fall – because you know I was running on ice. But I didn’t get hurt. I tucked and rolled and ended up in a Super Hero pose then got up quickly and kept running.

I confess! The President is Right!

Well I guess the jig is up folks. I am going to be the first to turn in my secret Liberal/Jewish/Muslim media cabal decoder ring. The president has found us out.
If it hadn’t been for Trump, we might’ve gotten away with it, but he proved too much for us.

Before I could respond she explained all the reasons why reporters are taken advantage of by the current presidential administration, how and why reporters need to react and how she was “tired of watching you all take it all the time.”
She was also upset with reporters who “constantly tell me what to think,” and said the media are their own worst enemy.

The best speech Trump has made yet

White House Front TwilightIn the stifling heat of the muggiest day in recent D.C. memory, last Monday President Donald Trump made his most enduring and remarkable speech since he took office. With hundreds of spectators gathered on the South Lawn of the White House, president Trump spoke of sacrifice and challenges. He spoke of inspiration and hard work. He spoke of selfless leadership and victory over insurmountable odds. He spoke of teamwork and appealed to the spirit of cooperation and becoming a part of something larger than ourselves.
