With less than 60 days until the Presidential Election, Democrats are leveraging all of their power centers to defeat Donald Trump.
That included Deep State allies at the highest levels of the military.
But now a top Trump critic confessed this plan to bring down Trump was a hoax.
The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg dropped an attack piece on Donald Trump claiming that in 2018 the President did not want to visit a famed military ceremony during a trip to France because anonymous sources claimed Trump called the 1,800 heroic marines buried there “suckers” and “losers.”
When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.
Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.
This story was obviously fake as over ten Trump administration officials went on the record to debunk the fake news lies Goldberg’s anonymous sources spread.
But the most significant denial came from former National Security Advisor turned Trump hater John Bolton.
Bolton told The New York Times that he was present for the conversation Goldberg citied and confirmed that he never heard the President hurl insults about dead service members.
The New York Times reported that “He got support from an unlikely source on Friday when John R. Bolton, his former national security adviser who has broken with him and called him unfit for office, said he was on the trip in question and never heard Mr. Trump make those remarks. ‘I didn’t hear that,’ Mr. Bolton said in an interview. ‘I’m not saying he didn’t say them later in the day or another time but I was there for that discussion.’”
Critics contend The Atlantic dropped this story on the same day early voting began in North Carolina and North Carolina has the highest per capita number of military families living there of any state in the union.
Other skeptics believe the media was desperate for a new hoax to take the attention off Joe Biden and his support for the Black Lives Matter riots sweeping American cities.
This story consumed the media for days even though within hours it was completely debunked.
