Celebrities are reacting to Donald Trump’s response to Myeshia Johnson’s interview on “Good Morning America.” During her appearance on the morning show, the widow of the fallen Sgt. La David Johnson spoke out about the phone call she received from the President after her husband’s death, but Trump rejected her account of their conversation. See stars’ reaction tweets below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Johnson spoke about the phone call she received from Trump on Monday’s episode of the morning show. During the interview, the soldier’s widow claimed she was “very upset” and “hurt” by the President’s condolence call, in which Trump allegedly told Johnson that her husband “knew what he signed up for.” Shortly after Johnson’s interview aired, the President countered her claim that he was insensitive and couldn’t remember the soldier’s name. He wrote on Twitter, “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!”

One celebrity commenting on Trump’s response to Johnson is Chelsea Handler, who said, “It was only a matter of time before you started fighting with widows. Shameful, undignified, and demented.” Arsenio Hall wrote, “#prayers to Myeshia Johnson… and all the families of our American heroes.” “5-time draft dodger Trump insulted a Gold Star widow? Bye-bye supporters!” Patton Oswalt expressed. Rosie O’Donnell simply tweeted, “we laugh at u trump #25thAmendmentNow.” Ava DuVernay told the president, “We don’t believe you. You are a con man. Nothing you do is respectful. Leave this woman and her family alone. You’ve done enough damage.”

Meanwhile, Alyssa Milano shared, “Thank you for your sacrifice, Myeshia Johnson.” She added, responding to Trump’s tweet, “Hmmmm. Should we believe a President who has lied 1,318 times in 275 days in office or the grieving widow of a fallen hero?” And Montel Williams said, “Very powerful interview on @gma with Myeshia Johnson. I hope @potus watched. One thing we all should agree on – Myeshia Johnson is a patriot. She has a quiet dignity and grace so common with military wives.” Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities react to Trump’s response to Johnson’s “Good Morning America” interview.
