If there is a lie here it’s that you know what “most liberals” do or don’t do.
Far as my post, you need to go back and read it again because clearly you didn’t understand what I wrote.
You know what, never mind, here I’ll explain it to you…
“Trump, when asked about why he didn’t address the issue sooner, threw out Obama’s name **and said he didn’t call the families of the fallen.”
Who do you think the “he” is in that sentence, Trump, or Obama?
Now let me fill it in for you…
“Trump, when asked about why he didn’t address the issue sooner, threw out Obama’s name **and said Obama didn’t call the families of the fallen.”
That is a fact, plain and simple. There was no reason to bring Obama into that discussion. Trump’s answer wasn’t even in the same chapter as the question he was asked.
Hopefully, a re-read of that sentence and you can figure out I wasn’t talking about Trump.
Now you are right, I have no idea what Trump’s motivations are or what he meant or even if he said what he was accused of saying, but if you read the OP, you’d know I was willing, under the circumstances to forgive any odd phrasing and despite my dislike of our President, don’t believe that he intended to offend anyone he calls.
However, I think the families have a right, in their greif, to interpret the President’s call however they wish. One of the reasons I don’t beleive that President’s should make calls, something that Secretary Kelly appears to agree with.
now let’s go back and look…In the OP I said:
Frankly, I think what Trump was trying to say is that her husband understood the dangers of his job but he was willing to make that sacrifice for his country and that makes him a hero, but he (Trump) understands that even with that knowledge, it is still painful to endure the loss of her husband."
You are so quick to jump on me and assume the worst just because I’m to your left you don’t even comprehend what you’re reading. Just a second of attention and you’d realize I was defending the President’s actions, not critisizing them.
What I do know is that the entire event started with questions about what happened to the 4 soldiers that were killed in Niger. Instead of answering, or carefully deflecting (eg. we are gathering information and will release it when it’s time…), instead Trump chose to drag Obama name into it and LIE about what Obama did (a lie he later copped out of by saying that “someone told him that”) with respect to calls to families of the fallen for no other reason thatn to make political points.
The press, happy to fact check Trump went to work and discovered the lie. Trump could have squashed the whole thing at any time by taking the high road and saying something like, "We need to focus on the families that have lost loved ones and put our partisan differences aside. But instead, he Tweets like a child and then marches Secretary Kelly, a man of honor and distinction who has been infected by the culture of corruption and lies and proceeded to besmirch his own honor and reputation defending a man like Trump putting forth false stories about the Congresswoman who is the subject of the OP.
It’s all disgusting, but Trump is at the center of it all. He is the beacon of disgust that all the rest of the disgusting despicable actions have emanated from.
