If you believe the story in The Atlantic, President Donald Trump HATES veterans, especially those who were injured or killed in the line of duty. According to their too-conveniently-timed "explosive" article, Trump calls fallen warriors "losers" and "suckers".
In fact, according to the ludicrous narrative supposedly told to them by again, too-convenient "anonymous sources", President Trump has so little regard for the honored dead that he skipped a ceremony in France because he thought the rain would mess up his hair.
The so-called bombshells don't stop there. Again, according to another "source", President Trump on another occasion wanted to exclude wounded and disabled veterans from a parade, saying that he and other Americans did not want to see such a depressing sight.
But there are several holes in this clumsy attempt at a political hatchet job.
FIRST, no one who was actually with the President in France recall him saying any such thing. Four members of his staff have all gone on the record to strongly denounce the story, calling it "100% false", "total BS", and "disgusting, grotesque, reprehensible lies".
Among those publicly decrying The Atlantic's version are:
** Jordan Karem, President Trump's Personal Aide
** Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former White House Press Secretary
** Hogan Gidley, former Deputy White House Press Secretary
** Dan Scavino, White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications
Eyewitnesses who are willing to come forward always...ahem...TRUMP anonymous whispers and insinuations. As Gidley said:
"These weak, pathetic, cowardly background ‘sources’ do not have the courage or decency to put their names to these false accusations because they know how completely ludicrous they are. It’s sickening that they would hide in the shadows to knowingly try and hurt the morale of our great military simply for an attack on a political opponent.”
MORE IMPORTANTLY, these accusations paint a completely false picture of a strongly pro-military President who has always supported our veterans, calling them "warriors" and "heroes".
In an effort to counter this disgusting fake news, here are the PICTURES THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE:
So President Trump Won't Honor Fallen Soldiers in the Rain?
So President Trump Doesn't Honor Fallen Heroes?
So President Trump is Uncomfortable Around Wounded Warriors?
