The most powerful moment of President Trump’s first speech before a joint session of Congress was the moment he honored the widow of a slain Navy SEAL. Everyone with the exception of a few Democrats gave her a standing ovation as she tearfully sobbed. Her husband was Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens who was killed in a Yemeni raid a few months ago.
However, liberal progressive and Hollywood elitist Michael Moore trashed widower Carryn Owens after she received her national recognition. During the honoring the President stated,
“Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom. We will never forget him.”
BizPacReview reported that Moore said the following about Donald Trump bringing Carryn Owens to the joint session,
“And to use that to put another notch on his belt, and what is he thinking about? ‘My ratings. Record Applause. I’m going to get an Emmy for this, most applause for a dead soldier on my watch!’ This is the sickness of this man.”
But Taya Kyle who is now a Fox News contributor responded in the best way possible. Her husband was the subject of the critically acclaimed film “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood. She helped in the writing of his book and her own after his 2013 murder.
“It makes me sick to my stomach. It makes me angry because he’s saying two things: She’s a fool and doesn’t know she’s being used, and that’s ridiculous. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. And it’s also saying this wasn’t warranted.
This is a silent professional and his intensely private family, who gave everything. They never wanted recognition. If somebody now wants to get up and thank him for his sacrifice, for his service. To tell the world his name … then God bless him.
The meaning of it, for all the people watching, who cried with her is that some valiant people are out there fighting not for Republicans, not for Democrats. They’re fighting for this country, and God bless them for doing it.”
She is the perfect person to put into perspective the great meaning and importance of what the President did for Owens that night. It is absolutely disgusting that liberals would do anything other than partaking in the honoring of this woman and her family.
