Prez Liar and the Green Beret Deaths

Well, hallelujah! 12 days after the death of four Green Berets in Niger the sitting president has something to say.

"Breaking his public silence about four American soldiers killed during an ambush in Niger, President Donald Trump said Monday he'd penned personal letters to their families and planned to phone them later this week.

He also claimed, without merit, that his predecessors hadn't written or called the families of slain American troops during their tenures, though the tradition of presidents reaching out after US servicemen are killed in action is long-established.
Trump said he'd written the letters over the weekend, and suggested they'd be mailed early this week. He was speaking 12 days after the ambush -- the deadliest combat incident since he took office."

Trump says he feels very badly... "I always feel badly. It is the toughest calls I have to make are the calls where this happens, soldiers are killed." He then claimed that other commanders in chief hadn't reached out to families of Americans killed in action, indicating he'd been told as much by the generals who serve in his administration.

Of all the lying, deceitful, fallacious, shameful comments.....this has got to be one of the worst.

Trump finally comments on Green Beret deaths, knocks Obama - CNNPolitics
Thanks from skews13 and Camelot

As I've stated previously, some folks such as you are just haters, you hate the GOP, our President, and Conservatives in general; which means that you just aren't a reasonable person.

It's true, neither Washington or Lincoln phoned even one of the parents of the fatalities of their wars.

See, jumping on Dotard for no reason.

He brings the mother of a Benghazi victim on stage at the RNC convention for political reasons. He disrespects a Gold Star family during the campaign for political reasons. Now, he ignores the death of 4 soldiers in Niger on his watch. This is a creep who claimed that avoiding STD’s in Manhattan during the 80’s was “his personal Viet Nam”. The fool is unfit and deplorable.

NOW, Cam. None of that was Dotard's fault. HE is the master of spin and the Blame Game. His generals told him so. His advisors didn't warn him. His speech writers got it wrong. His GOP "friends" let him down. John McCain voted NO and got caught as a POW.
"We’re not getting the job done," Trump said to reporters who were allowed into the room after he met with his Cabinet. "And I’m not going to blame myself. I’ll be honest. They are not getting the job done."

Paul Ryan is a "boy scout". He can't talk to McConnell. AND of course....the ultimate in betrayals: The hot mic was on. But that was just "boy talk".
The buck doesn't stop until Prez Grabber says so.

"I felt very, very badly about that, I always feel badly. It's the toughest calls, the toughest calls I have to make are the calls where this happens. Soldiers are killed. It's a very difficult thing.

"The traditional way, if you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls. I like to call when it's appropriate, when I think I'm able to do it."

The truth and Donald Trump are oil and water.
Following the exchange, Alyssa Mastromonaco, former deputy chief of staff for operations under Obama took to Twitter with an explosive response, calling Mr. Trump's comments a "f----ing lie."

"To say President Obama (or past presidents) didn't call the family member of soldiers KIA (killed in action) -- he's a deranged animal," she added.

A former White House official also told CBS News, "President Trump's claim is wrong. President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to Section 60 at Arlington, visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star Families at the White House and across the country."

An aide to former President Bill Clinton confirmed he, too, called the families of fallen soldiers while he was in office.

A spokesperson for former President George W. Bush also confirmed Mr. Bush had written to families of the fallen as well as called hundreds, if not thousands, of loved ones.
Clear yet? If not, here he digs down deeper:

"I was told that he didn't often, and a lot of presidents don't. They write letters.

"President Obama, I think, probably did sometimes and maybe sometimes he didn't, I don't know, that's what I was told. All I can do, all I can do is ask my generals. Other, other presidents did not call, they'd write letters and some presidents didn't do anything,"

Will any Trump supporters take him to task for these lies? I'll bet the farm on "no."

Drip Drip Drip. Now the families of fallen soldiers are speaking out and THEY ARE NOT happy with Prez Liar. AND this from Panetta: Former White House defense secretary and chief of staff Leon Panetta said that Obama made calls to families in 2011 after 30 soldiers died in a helicopter explosion in Afghanistan – Obama and Panetta flew to the Delaware air force base to meet with families as the soldiers’ remains were delivered home, the Post reports.

AND Eric Holder: “Stop the damn lying — you’re the president,” former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted alongside a photo of himself and Obama with a trio of soldiers. “I went to Dover AFB with [Obama] and saw him comfort the families of both the fallen military & DEA.”

AND families: Donald Trump Falsely Claims Past Presidents Didn't Call Families of Fallen Soldiers
