Fox’s defense reporter humiliates Trump: Military leaders thought his parade idea was a joke

Published

on

Fox News’ National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin reported that Pentagon officials did not believe reports that President Donald Trump actually wanted a military parade in Washington, DC during a Wednesday interview with Shepard Smith.

“The Pentagon is planning a military parade after President Trump asked for one, that’s the word from one U.S. defense official,” explained Fox News anchor Shepard Smith.

President Trump was enchanted by the Bastille Day Military Parade along the Champs-Elysées during a July visit to Paris. The parade has been held annually since 1880.

“On the plane ride home, he said he was dazzled by the show of military hardware and wondered it aloud and repeatedly since then as to why the U.S. does not have a military parade along Pennsylvania Avenue,” Griffin reported. “The defense secretary and others realized at that Pentagon meeting in January, that the president’s musings were serious and ordered to start planning.”

“At the inauguration, President Trump was disappointed that he could have a full military parade with tanks and other symbols of American power to mark his ascent to the presidency,” Griffin continued. “At the time, he was dissuaded because the tank treads would tear up Pennsylvania Avenue, Shep.”

“I would describe, however, the reaction at the Pentagon yesterday when this story broke as a collective eye roll from military leaders who I’ve spoken to,” Griffin reported.

“Most thought it was a joke at first,” Griffin explained. “Many fear that the U.S. will look like the dictators that they scoff at around the world.”

C-SPAN caller scorched by Muslim comedian for ignoring Jesus after she rants ‘gays are abomination to God’

Published

Comedian Dean Obeidallah, who is Muslim, told a C-SPAN caller that Republicans are not following the teachings of Jesus Christ even though they may oppose abortion and other policies advocated by evangelicals.

"I am independent," Pam, who called from Arkansas, told Obeidallah. "I vote according to my conscience of who would Jesus vote for if he were here on Earth. And he would not vote a group of people who believe in murdering children in the womb, on gays, which is an abomination to God, on false gods from other countries."

Obeidallah replied with a lesson on the Christian savior.

Conservative drops mic on complicit press trying to maintain access to Trump: ‘He’s a raving lunatic … tell it like it is’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin excoriated members of the press who -- in the pursuit of appearing "objective" -- refuse to "tell it like it is" when reporting on President Donald Trump.

Speaking with host Joy Reid, Rubin -- one of the president's more avid critics -- got right to the point.

"I think there are two things, "Rubin began. "One, I think that this notion of objectivity of balance has been so inculcated into the media that they now don't call it like they see it at all because they are walking on eggshells."

"When the president had that out of control press conference if you could call it that, when he was rambling on and on, they were so restrained, they described it as a celebration," she continued. "No, he was a raving lunatic. You need to use the words, the verbs and correct description so you give the public a feel of how dangerous this guy is. That is not being biased -- that is being accurate and revealing the danger this guy poses."

Trump belatedly snarls at media for reporting a portion of his wall fell over — two weeks after it happened

Published

on

On what must be a slow news day for President Donald Trump, he took to Twitter on Sunday morning to attack the press for reporting that a portion of his wall on the southern border toppled over two weeks ago -- and then blamed the collapse on "soaking wet" concrete and high winds.

Falling back on his stand-by "Fake News," the president tweeted: "Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall 'fell over', trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed 'forever'."
