Widow of Sgt. La David T. Johnson, Myeshia Johnson has confirmed that a Facebook post involving her name criticizing U.S. Rep.Frederica Wilson, is fake, according to the Miami Harold.
This story got the attention after Myeshia’s husband, a 25-year-old serviceman killed, drew national attention after President Donald Trump told her, “He knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway.”
In a Facebook post the user says, “I want to set the record straight. I’m getting sick and tired of this so called politician using my husband as a political platform.”
The time-stamp on the post said 3:27 p.m. Tuesday. But Trump made the call at 4:45 p.m.
Michael Del Moro, a segment producer for Good Morning America, confirmed the post is fake on Twitter.

Johnson had his service in Cooper City; nearly 1,000 mourners attended.
Johnson planned to return and raise his son and daughter, as well as another baby girl, due in January. He had been sent on his second deployment to Africa in August, shortly after his third wedding anniversary.
