Actual (non-anonymous) witness: Atlantic’s troop story not true

You know the media is desperate when they go from manipulation and misrepresentation to outright lying.

That’s what happened when The Atlantic ran a story based on anonymous sources that claimed that Trump called fallen WWI soldiers “losers.”

That story held up for all of a few hours – that is, until non-anonymous sources that were actually there proved that it was a lie.

One of these sources was Trump enemy John Bolton, who has done his share to hurt the president. Apparently, the Atlantic’s attack was too much for even Bolton.

Breitbart reports:

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has disputed a story in The Atlantic claiming that President Donald Trump called fallen World War I soldiers “losers.” Bolton told the New York Times Friday that “I was there” and “I didn’t hear that.”

Bolton’s testimony isn’t the only thing that disproves the anonymously sourced story – FOIA documents also show it to be false.

It should be no surprise that the media is willing to lie to hurt Trump. The real surprise, at least for them, is that they’re so bad at lying that they end up hurting their own credibility more than his.

I quit reading news papers in 1980. Quit listening to TV news about 1985. Quit going to movies about 1980….believe I have attended 3 movies since 1980. I do not read any “news” by leftists on the internet. I try to stay on top of what is going on re our “GOVERNment” because it is, in my view, the most dangerous enemy we have, but I offer gratitude to President Trump and a precious few in “Congress” because they try to stick to the truth and they try to do the right thing. No one else in DC has any interest in truth or caring for true Americans, probably because DC consists mostly of left wingers. Anyone who BELIEVES the teeniest bit about “news” put out by leftists is an unadulterated FOOL.

I stopped reading any news on Yahoo. I was really only going there because i have Yahoo mail. Every once in a while I would read Yahoo news mostly FOR LAUGHS because most of it is 24/7 Trump bashing. NOTHING BUT LIES, SPIN, AND ANTI TRUMP GARAGE. I just got sick of reading so many lies that I suddenly got turned off. How is printing blatant LIES not against the law? President Trump should sue for Libel and defamation of Character.

Altho we don’t need a news article to inform us this was a outright lie, as we all know what’s true, and what’s not. I do Hope he sues them for defamation of character, lying, etc. The only ones who believe this trash,and the rest of the garbage are the brain dead Bernie/ Biden radical left supporters. I say Bernie because he is the one who will be running the country if the Dems CHEAT their way to a victory.

You are a great American. I only wish my parents had lived long enough to see what a none politician was able to do for America. He loves the people, the military, and wants to keep us safe from the bad people who try to threaten us. He has earned 4 more years in office.

The sad part about the media lying is no one will be astonished. No one will say “I can’t believe they would do that.” It is something we all expect from the media. What does that say about it? Now we take everything they do or say with a grain of salt. The media is not relevant any longer. When I was younger I looked forward to watching the “news”. Cronkite was my “eyes and ears” to the rest of the world. Now everyone is “fact checked” and with good reason. Today the media is just another commercial selling another placebo that won’t work.

Trump needs to stick to promoting his agenda and his issues and not pay attention to all these people trying to bring him down he has so much accomplishment that he needs to promote. Also what he will add for the next four years.

Everyone on the left who hates Trump are going to say the ugliest things possible before this election to try and ruin his standing . That’s the only way they know how to play is ugly , mean and dirty because they want to take him out . It may even get worse before Nov3

Altlantic Magazine, telling a story not the story. I would recommend the 72 hour rule wait 72 hrs. and more than likely it will be revealed as BS. Unfortunately many people only read the headline and they were able to get the outcome they were looking for. Truth be damned.

Unless I’m mistaken, that verbiage of military, calling them losers, actually came out of Obama’s mouth during one of his rallies for election. Not sure if it was the 1st term or second.

If they will go this low now just wait for election day. Just think if/when Trump and all other Republicans are winning how the liars are going to start saying how the mail in votes got lost or not counted Bla, bla, bla just to make more time for all the illegal ballots to be put into the count. Need to find were they are stored and protest and have a nice burn night.

I think the President says some stupid things from time to time but this BS story is
something He would never say. I’ve been to the American cemetery at Normandy to
visit my uncles grave. It brought tears to my eyes seeing all those white crosses.
Don’t say something so outrageous anonymously. Man or woman up and give your
real name. The President loves his military alive or dead. An speaking of liars Biden is a 40 year liar and BS artist. None of the print media will print the real truth on their
front page. This was the worst untrue story yet but more will come anonymously.

The comments were made about Trump’s helicopter flight ! He didn’t go because of weather coming in ” fog ” and because of the Democratic terrorist tactics of supporting riot’s looting shootings , they didn’t believe the secret service could get Presents Donald Trump to safety in time .

A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you ought to write more on this issue, it might
not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t speak about these subjects.
