From the family that brought you the Dirty Steele Dossier, continues the multipronged attack on President Trump through Washington Insiders and their Media Propaganda wing.
Meghan McCain has come out supporting the Trump hit piece in The Atlantic, claiming the President disparaged John McCain after he died and called wounded and dead American warriors, "losers."
The remarks allegedly occured during a 2018 trip to France to commemorate fallen WW1 allied soldiers. On the first day, President Trump was unable to attend the ceremony due to weather preventing his planned helicopter route and the near logistical impossibility of last minute travel by car through Paris.
From Fox News:
ABC News’ “The View” returned from summer hiatus to kick off its 24th season on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for co-host Meghan McCain to declare she believes an anonymous report that President Trump mocked fallen American troops – but said The Atlantic should have warned her family the story was coming out.
Co-hosts McCain, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin kicked off the show by welcoming former co-host Sara Haines back as a regular before quickly jumping into politics.
McCain noted that it’s been interesting to see Trump shift his focus to “law and order” during the six weeks that “The View” wasn’t on air. The panel then discussed a variety of recent political events and eventually landed on a widely disputed article published by The Atlantic that featured anonymous sources claiming Trump made offensive remarks about fallen American soldiers.
Trump and many from the White House staff have forcibly denied the allegations published in The Atlantic on Thursday, alleging, according to four unnamed sources, that the president referred to dead soldiers buried at the Aisne-Marne American cemetery near Paris as "suckers" and that the land was "filled with losers" during his visit to France in 2018.
Also in the bombshell report, Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic's editor in chief, wrote, "When [John] McCain died, in August 2018, Trump told his senior staff, according to three sources with direct knowledge of this event, 'We're not going to support that loser's funeral,' and he became furious, according to witnesses, when he saw flags lowered to half-staff. 'What the f— are we doing that for? Guy was a f—ing loser,' the president told aides."
The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech, the husband of Meghan McCain and son-in-law of the late Arizona Sen. John McCain, has previously taken aim at Jeffrey Goldberg."
McCain is just the latest to insist The Atlantic report must be true, despite no person going on the record to support its' clains and countless first hand witnesses goin ON the record that the remarks never took place.
This includes current rival, John Bolton, and former aide to General John Kelly Zach Fuentes, who also refutes The Atlantic's core claims.
Dan Rather's take on the now heavily refuted article tells you all you need to know about the intention of the article all along.
By all on the record accounts, it never happened.
But it sounds like Donald Trump might say it and that's all that counts.
