The Atlantic’s fake news about Trump denigrating the troops did the job. It knocked a ton of good news for President Trump right out of the news cycle (see below), put Trump on defense for a week after he had Joe Biden reeling over the former vice president’s obvious affection for rioters, and was gaining in the polls.
There is nothing the media will not do to beat Trump, including abuse our troops and their families with these terrible lies about their own commander-in-chief.
And it was all a lie, and here’s eight facts that prove that…
- It’s The Atlantic
- It Was a Coordinated Hit-Job with the Biden Campaign
Media conference calls. Ad campaigns. Biden press conference. Now batting clean-up, Khizr Khan! All of this was coordinated and released on the same day we learned 1.4 million jobs were created the month prior, the unemployment rate plummeted to 8.4 percent, and the Trump administration scored a massive foreign policy success with the normalization of diplomatic relations between Kosovo, Serbia, and Israel.
The timing was deliberate to wipe out Trump’s great news day.
- No One Will Go On Record
Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg says his sources are worried about mean tweets.
They’re worried about being sued for libel.
Not ONE source will go on the record.
- Everyone On the Record Who Was There Says It Never Happened
The U.S. Ambassador to France was there. Says it never happened. Says the Atlantic never contacted him. Says Trump was “devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood,” which is a complete 180 from the Atlantic‘s claim Trump shrugged it off because the cemetery is filled with “losers” and “suckers.”
There are at least a half-dozen more on the record sources, including former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
- All the Documents Say It Never Happened
There you go. Receipts, baby!
On that Atlantic Story – @JeffreyGoldberg and his "four sources" claim Trump's helicopter flight to the US/French cemetery wasn't cancelled due to weather.
FOIA docs prove this to be false.
Their "sources" are failing basic fact checks – making them essentially worthless. pic.twitter.com/wAa7FrSxoW

- Anti-Trumpers Who Were There Say It Never Happened
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton despises Donald Trump and says outright the story is “simply false” and told Fox News their reporter is “just flatly wrong.”
He was in the room when this supposedly happened; says it didn’t.
Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Zach Fuentes, who also does not appear to be a big Trump fan, also says it never happened.
Fuentes told Breitbart News on Monday:
You can put me on record denying that I spoke with The Atlantic. I don’t know who the sources are. I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather. Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?
- Nothing in Trump’s Character Makes It Believable
Trump has his flaws, but there is nothing in his past that points to anything other than a reverence for the men and women who serve our country. Not just as president. This respect has been a part of his public character going back decades.
- Dan Rather Really Likes the Story
The Emperor of Fake News is pushing this horseshit like it proves George W. Bush was AWOL for his Texas Air National Guard duty, or something.
But even Rather is skeptical.
When Dan Rather is doubting a late-election hit on a sitting Republican president, you got yourself a problem.
