    Trump Grants Terminally Ill Man’s Wish With a Phone Call

    Trump Grants Terminally Ill Man’s Wish With a Phone Call

    So sweet!

    Jay Barrett from West Haven, CT, is terminally ill with cystic fibrosis. All he wanted before he dies was a phone call from President Donald Trump. His sister Bridgette Hoskie made sure that happened. From Fox News:

    The efforts paid off Tuesday night when Barrett received a surprise call from Trump. According to Barrett, Hoskie handed him a phone and he heard an understated greeting: “I’m the secretary for the president of the United States. Do you have time to talk to him?”

    Barrett was ecstatic.

    “Alright Jay, you look handsome to me. I just saw a picture of you.” Trump began, in a video of the call posted to YouTube.

    Barrett responded: “Oh, you’re giving me kind honors. I look like sh–.” That prompted Trump to laugh and ask, “How are you doing? How is it going Jay? … You’re a champ. You’re fighting it right?”

    “That’s what the Irish do — right?” Barrett answered.

    “Yeah that’s what the Irish do — you better believe it,” Trump said.

    “Mr. President, through thick and thin, you know there’s been a lot of thicks, and there’s been a lot of thins, I support you,” Barrett told the president.

    “I wish you could come to a rally. I wish you could come,” Trump said. “I know you like that stuff and I wish you could. … It sounds like you have a great sister, Jay.”

    Trump promised Jay that when he has a rally nearby, he’ll “be sitting front, row center.” Trump added, “I know where you live” and that he was very familiar with the area.

    Barrett told Trump he’s planned on coming down to Washington, D.C. “between now and my expiration date.”

    “You’re my kind of man, Jay. … I’m very proud of you,” Trump said. “I’ll talk to you again, Jay, OK? You keep that fight going. We both fight.”

    “How you use authority reveals your character: Selfish leaders hoard power for personal gain. Servant leaders share power for social good. And the ultimate test of character for people in power is how they treat people who lack it.” — Adam Grant.

    Power reveals. Thank you for your kindness Mr. President.
