Yet some other dude sourced Breitbart and you skipped over that and whined about NYT ,Blomberg and Politico??.. Pls wipe the smote from thine own eyes.
Btw do you guys still love FOX and them, since they claimed an independent source for the story, or do you just go str8 to Q Anon.

He claims never having called out this as fake news, yet he actively tries to avoid stating whether or not he actually believes such. Slithering Arizona.... slithering out of any accountability. Deflection on high.

The Brietbart post had no relevance to my post.
If I would just go poking my nose in every random post that isn't connected to me that would make me...
heck, that would make me just like you
And I'd much rather be me than you

I have nothing to admit
I presented evidence that includes a video of the Atlantic editor acknowledging that the central tenet of their story may be false
nothing has been presented to refute that
save for logical fallacy after logical fallacy after logical fallacy
If that's all you have, then obviously I'm wasting my precious time arguing with a ninny
however, if you care to offer serious refutation to my evidence presented, then I'm all ears

So then, given you believe the article from the very right leaning Federalist, you think it's fake news then? If that's the case, why did you jump up and deny believing it was fake news in the first place?

Because the article from the Federalist is offering a named source...The Atlantic Editor
The Atlantic article offers no named source.
In fact, every person known to have been in the room when Trump supposedly said this has denied he said it.
That is why the Atlantic Editor has backed off this story

Here's a similar article that also links to a CNN video with the admission...
pjmedia.com...

Of note are these key words by Goldberg..



Despite this, Goldberg still defended his article, claiming that “the public’s interest in meeting this information outweigh the ambiguities or the difficulties of anonymous sourcing.” Goldberg also said he would continue to publish similar stories.

Whether or not you believe article presented by the Federalist doesn't change the fact you think it's fake news.

I have no way of knowing what the Atlantic's intentions were
It's possible they believed they had a story, without verifying sources
in the end it doesn't matter
It turned out that it was likely fabricated somewhere along the line

LOL....it is like the Russian hoax is starting all over again.....senior official who wishes to remain anonymous has outed Trump as a two scoops of ice cream and giant salt shaker president.....

Sookie....give it up.....your team is lost and always will be.

It was fabricated from the start......and they didn't have to believe....they made it up.

The funny part is them comparing it to deep throat from Watergate.....that makes me belly laugh.

So then it's not fake news? These reports?

Back and forth Arizona.

It's becoming obvious that Trump never said these things that day.
The question is did the Atlantic believe he said it and was just hasty on the story?
Or did they know he probably didn't say it and didn't care.
If it's the former, then it's just shoddy craftsmanship.
If it's the latter, then yes, its fake news

A real man would not have surrendered.


well i disliked macain as much as the next person, but he really didn't have much of a choice.

he was shot down and had two broke arms and a broke legs. he also landed in lake when he ejected. when they pulled him out of the lake they crushed his shoulder with a rifle butt, stabbed him with a bayonet.

when they got him to the "Hanoi Hilton" they didn't give him any medical care and beat him for info until they found out his father was a admiral. later when his father was made head of all U.S. Forces in Vietnam they offered to release him which he refused unless they let everyone captured before him go first.

then they started torture him again, his beatings and injuries left him unable to raise his arms over his head. i'd like to see you endure the torture they put him through

might want to make sure who your talking about before you start bumping off at the gums.




I don't hate McCain and appreciate many things about him. But a truly good man would not say the things he has said about Trump, even if Trump disparaged him first.

McCain was who he was. I am not his judge. But I can offer comment on the things he has said and done.

Pics or it didn’t happen, but I’ll forgive him either way as this statement is fabricated and doesn’t matter. It is only a political hit piece, what purpose is it serving otherwise? Please, election porn for those with the fetish for it, nothing more. Honestly the mess you guys leave after is pretty horrible, you should really just stay at home for that kind of dirty behavior.

FAKE NEWS!!!!
Why isn’t this in the hoax bin yet and why doesn’t the OP care about integrity?

Also, there is no source. The Atlantic made it up. I don’t know why that’s so hard to get.
How do y’all look at yourselves in the mirror falling for anonymous sources over and over and over.

Any single guys out there: date a democrat. You can cheat all you want and they’ll believe any lie that makes them feel better.

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" 😆😆




Probably because one source is anonymous and the second source is clearly labeled as hearsay in the article.

As we all know, hearsay sourced from unknown people is always accurate....

Some people have come to think circular-reporting is good...

Who knows, maybe the atlantic will have a dossier about it soon...


Anyone remember what the defense for John Kerry disparaging the military was, right before he threw his medals over the wall ?

I can see Trump perhaps saying that.

How many soldiers have been killed since he became President?


64 soldier so far
