You addressed me, not Trump.
Your post is a blatant attempt to glom back on to the credibility you threw away by claiming LMGTFY doesn't "work" and by refusing to drop the
mainstream media line spoon fed to you by CNN. This is astonishingly hypocritical of you, given your penchant for railing against mainstream sources
I know I am addressing you, not Trump. Trump is not here, so why would I address him? I have no idea who you think you are addressing, given that I
never rail against mainstream sources. If you have never had a link on ATS time out before, you must be very fortunate indeed. I don't see how having
a link time out would damage one's credibility. On the other hand, not realizing that the sarcastic link does not address the issue
The Secret Service, like other Federal agencies, must take a very neutral stance concerning presidential candidates. It would be inappropriate to
reveal potentially damaging episodes to the public. Telling a campaign staff that their candidate may be putting Secret Service lives at stake by his
rhetoric is not something that they would officially disclose. Nevertheless, they would not be acting responsibly if they did not speak
and privately with Trump's staff.
I'm surprised that you do not know how to parse official statements. CNN made it clear that their informant was speaking off the record, and therefore
it was not an official Secret Service statement. The "clarification," on the record, was careful to specify that no talks were held formally.
In other words, they did not pull out their badges and read them their rights. They just bought them a beer and told them that they need to keep their
monkey in line before they are forced to act officially.
Nowhere does the Secret Service say that the story is a fabrication. Why do you think it is?
