John Bolton strikes down Atlantic claims that Trump disparaged fallen soldiers

Former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who has very publically attacked Donald Trump since leaving the White House in September of 2019, just struck down the Atlantic’s salacious claims that Trump denigrated fallen soldiers in 2018. 

Bolton is no fan of Donald Trump, and in fact, released an entire book undermining Trump — so it’s telling that even Bolton would deny the Atlantic’s shocking claims.

In a Monday appearance on “The Story,” Bolton addressed the claim that Donald Trump called fallen American soldiers in France “losers” after canceling a planned trip to the cemetery for American war dead in France in 2018.

Bolton, who was serving as NSA at the time and accompanied Trump on the trip, said that the allegations are “false.”

“According to what that article said, the president made disparaging remarks about soldiers and people buried in the cemetery in connection with the decision for him not to go to the ceremony that was planned that afternoon, and that was simply false,” Bolton said.

“I don’t know who told the author that, but that was false,” Bolton declared. The author of the bombshell hit piece is Atlantic editor-in-chief Jeffery Goldberg, who cited anonymous sources to back up the claims.

Bolton explained that the trip was simply canceled due to poor weather predictions. “The main issue was whether or not weather conditions permitted the president to go out to the cemetery,” Bolton said calling it a “very straight weather call.”

Former White House deputy chief of staff Zach Fuentes corroborated the account on Monday, telling Breitbart that “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,” Fuentes declared. “Honestly, do you think [Former White House Chief of Staff] General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?”

IF this reporter won’t disclose her “anonymous “ sources then this is all bogus! I do not care what she says that her sources are credible… really?? I do not think she is credible! She wants to smear the President and get her 5 minutes of fame! This was all contrived to influence the election! Fox should definitely fire her as the Fox viewers have no respect for her at all!

They just wanted the news off Pelosi and her hair salon visit. Biden had an ad all set to go, it broke just hours after the story broke, It was all contrived, they are going to keep trying everything they can to try to turn off the voters who are going to Trump because the riots are going unchecked in the Democratic cities. on CSPAN during the RNC I listed all 4 nights and 10 out of 11 Democratic voters said they were voting for Trump.

Our President and Mcain had a disagreement. The President knew about Mcains wet start on the Forestall and the lives lost. Our President doesn’t talk about our military the way the anonymous sources say. If the sources had any honor they would come forward. Reminds me of dingy Harry Reid saying Romney didn’t pay taxes. After the election he was asked about it and dingy Harry said “he lost didn’t he”

Does anyone who knows what President Trump has done for the military really think he would say such a thing? It’s obviously a made up lie. It makes headlines and just slings more crap at the President.
It’s a nothing burger, plain and simple.
Trump 2020

The only “losers” I see in this entire farce are the entitled, elitist, liberal DEMS. ANYONE who wants to be famous simply has to make up a bunch of lies about Trump and the MSM will publish it. You can become a “trusted source” and your opinions, or lies, will be printed as FACT and you can remain ANONYMOUS! MEANING NO ONE CAN CHALLENGE YOUR REMARKS! HEY, THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR SCHIFF AND THE “IMPEACHMENT SHAM.” They changed the laws so that if you are a public figure ANYONE CAN SAY ANYTHING ABOUT YOU. The problem is, the new laws would provide freedom of speech if you were making public illegal or dishonest FACTS about a powerful person. Unfortunately the DEMs have turned this into any salacious lie can be made public and there is nothing you can do about it. Lying about people is NOT freedom of speech. It is “bearing false witness”, and is light years from the era where a person’s “word is their honor.” These people have no honor and have destroyed journalism as an honorable profession.
