The Presidential election is in the home stretch.
Now there is a “September Surprise” designed to end Donald Trump’s campaign.
And four Deep State leakers just betrayed the military in this terrible way.
Late on Thursday night, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg dropped a bombshell story claiming back in 2018 Donald Trump called dead war heroes “suckers” and refused to visit an historic World War I cemetery because he didn’t want to mess up his hair in bad weather.
Goldberg wrote, “When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.
“Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, ‘Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.’ In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as ‘suckers’ for getting killed.”
This is a provable lie.
Contemporaneous accounts as well as official travel records prove Goldberg and his sources fabricated the story about Donald Trump not wanting to visit the cemetery because he didn’t want to get his hair messed up.
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton, no friend of the President, wrote in his anti-Trump book that the visit was called off because of the weather.

An email released by the White House indicated that pilot called off the flight because of poor weather.
On that Atlantic Story – @JeffreyGoldberg and his "four sources" claim Trump's helicopter flight to the US/French cemetery wasn't cancelled due to weather.
FOIA docs prove this to be false.
Their "sources" are failing basic fact checks – making them essentially worthless. pic.twitter.com/wAa7FrSxoW

This ridiculous fake news story is designed to erode Donald Trump’s support with military voters and to force establishment Republicans to condemn him.
Anonymous sources are feeding Goldberg quotes that sound true enough to liberal Americans so The Atlantic runs them.
But at least one of the details in the story is verifiable false.
What else in the story is a lie?
