Another leak from the Trump administration? Or is the Deep State at work again?


President Donald Trump is angrily denying a report that he made disparaging remarks about U.S. service members who have been captured or killed, including that he described American war dead at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France in 2018 as “losers” and “suckers.”

The allegations were reported in The Atlantic. A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments.

In another conversation on the trip, The Atlantic said, Trump referred to the 1,800 Marines who died in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

This 'report' is hitting the media by storm at the moment, which is surprising for me considering that I don't typically expect anonymous sources to gain that much steam in this political era....? but then again we have Qanon and other fairly popular anonymous individuals, so I guess it depends?

Even Fox News is being implicated in verifying this source:


Then Jennifer Griffin, a national security correspondent for the network, said in a lengthy Twitter thread that former Trump administration officials confirmed the president’s remarks to her.

The Atlantic article cited anonymous sources — which Fox News said suggested the article had been falsified — but two former senior Trump administration officials verified the president’s disparaging comments to Griffin, she said.

I mean look, I wouldn't hold it past Trump to make pretty remarkable disparaging comments:



And his honesty record is constantly under question when he contradicts or disputes the very thing he's been caught saying. Like denying making that specific remark about John McCain. Regardless, it's going to take a lot more than just reports and anonymous sources to make any sort of change to his core support. I believe it's well within his behaviour to make such comments, but reports aren't enough these days.

So. Still anonymous sources...

Let us know when there's actual evidence.

I can see Trump perhaps saying that.

How many soldiers have been killed since he became President?

Already suspicious because one major owner of The Atlantic is a big Biden donor 😬

And why no leaks when it happened?

That would have been a huge story "at the time" 😆😆

Until sources are confirmed and evidence presented, it's fake news.

In all honesty, this is the Dems hitting back for Pelosis hair scandal, infact, the OP themselves elude to to this fact when said,



This 'report' is hitting the media by storm at the moment, which is surprising for me considering that I don't typically expect anonymous sources to gain that much steam in this political era....?

Key takeaways, it's 60 days till election.

Every single asset is being utilized, every favor and call in, end all be all.

Expect this Media circus to continue, Trumps turn, this week after Labor day most likely.

Like QAnon?

Yes, I agree. Probably a bit more reliable considering we actual names, titles reported.

You go ahead and double down on this lie.

I'm sure after you get schooled hard, again, you'll be right in here to admit how wrong you were like all the other fake news you so vehemently spread and defend.

So what you're saying is you are trolling people with fake news to bait them into refuting it...?
