"Partisans on both sides have made this into yet another Trump controversy and that really is depressing", said Kurtz. He turned that into a suggestion that Barack Obama and other presidents rarely or never called the families of the fallen, triggering vehement denials from former Obama aides. He has a bad record on Gold Star families.

Host Alisyn Camerota attempted to bait Sheila Murphy by asking if she had recieved a call from president Trump, but Murphy shut the door quick.

"So the traditional way, if you look at President Obama and other presidents, majority didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls".

Despite the attacks from Obama staffers and a slew of headlines pointing out that Donald Trump's statement is false, the White House doubled down on the president's claims.

Murphy said that her pain was indescribable and that she had come up with a new word - "un-get-throughable" - to indicate what she and her family are going through.

Hunt says at the time, she remembers getting calls from Iraq, visits from soldiers and handwritten notes.

"They're hard to read, but later on when you go back and you look over stuff again, you realize that they meant what they said and they were hurting just like we were", said Hunt. I generally hold my powder.

Many other Gold Star parents also received a letter from the president.

Trump, who would clearly fail the marshmallow test, doubled-down on his claims when asked about the incident by a reporter Wednesday: "I didn't say what that congresswoman said; didn't say it all. She probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say".

Psychotherapist Robi Ludwig says many people make the mistake of saying nothing at all. She says they did that in Nashville and the experience was incredibly meaningful.

"If I were in the vehicle with a family and President Obama was calling, I would never suggest that - from a political point of view - he had done something wrong".
