Taya Kyle, the widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle, appeared on Fox News Wednesday evening to decry the liberal attacks on Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in Yemen in January.
During President Trump’s speech to the joint session of Congress, the President honored Owens and his family for the sacrifices they have made for their nation. In a heartfelt and touching display, the President praised the fallen soldier and promised his wife that her husband would never be forgotten.
Sadly, in the aftermath of those comments, unhinged liberals across the media spectrum have been attacking and demeaning both the President and the Owens family. They claim that the President was simply using the fallen hero as a “prop” and they’ve denigrated Carryn Owens for being too naïve to realize she was being used.
For example, Democrat activist Dan Grilo immediately 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.”
Hatred from the other side. I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it's not! pic.twitter.com/nNVfFWJmDh
