Repackaged BS just in time for the November Elections…
The Goldberg piece is no surprise from a man who, as Daniel Greenfield explains, “spent the Obama administration serving as a reliable administration sycophant, conducting deep thought interviews with his political messiah.” The Atlantic is also home to fake conservative David Frum, who pretended the Obama administration was not radical when it was “crawling with Afro-Marxists and just plain Marxists,” as David Horowitz observed.
The Atlantic’s Lie About Trump Denigrating U.S. Troops
Welcome to the cesspool of anonymously-sourced journalism.
“The story is not true. It has become a very dangerous time when anonymous sources are believed above all else, & no one knows their motivation. This is not journalism – It is activism. And it is a disservice to the people of our great nation.”
That was First Lady Melania Trump, in response to Jeffrey Goldberg’s Atlantic story, based on anonymous sources, that the president called American soldiers in France’s Aisne-Marne cemetery “losers” and “suckers.” Unlike Goldberg, the First Lady was actually there.
“First Lady Melania Trump traveled with her husband to Paris, France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice that ended World War I,” a November 11, 2018 White House press release explains. “Due to inclement weather, the First Lady and President were unable to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in Belleau, France. The cemetery contains the graves of 2,289 American heroes, and inscribed on the walls of the Memorial Chapel are the names of 1,060 missing American Soldiers from the War.”
“We will never forget the sacrifices made for the freedoms we enjoy today,” Melania Trump said. “We remember and honor the heroic efforts made not only by our brave men in uniform at that time, but of all the American people who came together in this great time of need.”
