Fox News just confirmed the "vets are suckers" story. Awaiting the MAGA argument on how Kaepernick disrespects the troops but Trump is hunky dory.
Another FAKE NEWS story bites the dust...

Fired former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who released an anti-Trump book earlier this year that sought to offer one last breath into the Democrats’ February impeachment hopes, debunked The Atlantic hit piece published Thursday. The magazine’s story relied entirely on anonymous sources to charge the president with making disparaging remarks on WWI veterans.
Bolton’s book however, offered a different narrative of events falling in line with the official White House claims for the last-minute cancellation in France.
“The weather was bad, and Kelly and I spoke about whether to travel as planned to the Chateau-Thierry Belleau Wood monuments and nearby American Cemeteries, where many US World War I dead were buried,” Bolton wrote.
Marine One’s crew was saying that bad visibility could make it imprudent to chopper to the cemetery. The ceiling was not too low for Marines to fly in combat, but flying POTUS was obviously something very different. If a motorcade was necessary, it could take between ninety and a hundred and twenty minutes each way, along roads that were not exactly freeways, posing an unacceptable risk that we could not get the President out of France quickly enough in case of an emergency. It was a straightforward decision to cancel the visit but very hard for a Marine like Kelly to recommend, having originally been the one to suggest Belleau Wood… Trump agreed, and it was decided that others would drive to the cemetery instead.
