The media humiliated themselves when they claimed President Donald Trump refused to meet with troops over Christmas. Quickly, we learned that Trump took a secret flight to Iraq and meet with our men and women serving overseas. Instead of admitting their fault, CNN tried to turn the table — by attacking our troops.
How petty can the liberal media get? With each passing day, they reach a new milestone of stupidity and bias. We really thought we saw the worst in 2016 when they blatantly shilled for then-candidate Hillary Clinton.
Since the election, they’ve all but given up pretending to be unbiased reporters. The mainstream media has openly become the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. CNN just might be the worst of the bunch.
These “journalists” go out of their way to slander the President of the United States. I’m sure, like me, you’re tired of seeing CNN blatantly distort facts or even lie to make Trump look bad. On top of that, they ignore his many successes and invite “pundits” on their shows to criticize the Commander in Chief.
This Christmas, the liberal media was quick to attack Trump because it seemed like he would not visit troops for the holiday. All of a sudden, the MSM cares about our soldiers? Before the media got any information about Trump’s plans, they spread stories that he was neglecting our troops during the holidays.
Soon, we discovered that wasn’t the case. President Trump and Melania made an unannounced visit to Iraq, just to greet and thank our troops.
That made the media look really bad. They were so eager to bash President Trump, they didn’t even bother checking the White House for his plans. The media pounced on the lie that Trump was ignoring our soldiers this Christmas, only to be humiliated for their stupidity.
What did they do, once they learned Trump went above and beyond past presidents? Apologize for the error? Honestly report on Trump’s visit?
Nope! CNN quickly shifted gears, looking for another angle by which to smear Trump and others. And they did so by attacking the very men and women who are risking their lives (for us) overseas.
On Wednesday, as President Trump visited American troops stationed in Iraq at the al-Asad airbase, CNN took a shot at the troops who asked Trump to sign their “Make America Great Again” hats or their embroidered patches reading “Trump 2020.” The network discussed whether the service members might have violated Department of Defense guidelines against partisan political activities, and later implied on its website that the troops had indeed violated the rules. But CNN left out a key part of the guidelines when they quoted them.
On CNN’s “The Situation Room,” the network turned to a military expert to determine whether what the troops did was inappropriate. Shockingly, that military expert turned out to be none other than Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson. Even more shockingly, Kirby theorized that the troops’ actions were indeed inappropriate, saying archly, “It is in fact a campaign slogan, that is a campaign item, and it is completely inappropriate for the troops to do this.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Um, what the actual hell? Is CNN so petty, that they have to attack our soldiers because Trump embarrassed them? Let’s get real here: Trump purposely kept his trip a secret. Why? To play the media for chumps. He knew they would quickly attack him because he didn’t publicly announce his plans. Trump knew the biased media would assume he was neglecting the troops and rush out stories that made him look bad.
The truth came out hours later. Not only was he visiting troops, but he and his wife flew to IRAQ to greet many in person. You have to be an idiot — or thoroughly corrupt scumbag — to attack the president over such a move.
So, CNN instead proves they are even more corrupt than that by attacking our troops. We can assume not all men and women in the military are Trump supporters. But who wouldn’t want to meet the President of the United States, when he comes all the way there to see you? Having him sign a ball cap or showing a Trump patch or flag isn’t out of the question.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that some — perhaps many — troops love Trump. Is anyone surprised they wanted to shake his hand or get a hat autographed? Yet CNN is paying a former Obama shill to lie by suggesting these soldiers are in hot water for being happy to see Trump.
Didn’t the military organize and agree to this trip? Clearly, nobody is surprised to see that soldiers have MAGA hats and other objects. It seems only former con men from the Pentagon have their panties in a knot over this.
But what CNN left out is most telling.
But here’s what CNN left out from the guidelines: “Active duty members may, however, express their personal opinions on political candidates and issues, make monetary contributions to a political campaign or organization, and attend political events as a spectator when not in uniform.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Whether or not the soldiers were in uniform when Trump visited is immaterial. They weren’t working at the time. They weren’t squandering government funds to politick — the reason for the rules. They were being visited by the POTUS on Christmas. Nobody in the military is going to penalize soldiers for having MAGA hats.
But this is how the left operates. They are petty, vindictive, downright evil creatures. Even on Christmas, the goons at CNN can’t be happy that the president visited troops to wish them well. Patriotic Americans need to spread the word about CNN’s hate for our president and soldiers!
