Angry Joe Biden Hits Trump Over Fake Atlantic Hit Piece (Video)

On Friday, Democrat Joe Biden slammed President Trump over a hit piece published by the Atlantic that claimed the president disparaged fallen soldiers and war heroes.  The story has been thoroughly debunked by a number of sources, including John Bolton.

The first question Biden received came from a reporter who works for the same outlet that published the fake news piece.

“What does it tell you about President Trump’s soul and the life he leads?” asked Atlantic writer Isaac Dovere.

Here’s video of Biden’s response to the softball question that appears to be something of a set-up:

Biden, who frequently loses his temper when asked uncomfortable questions, said he was close to losing his temper.

About the hit piece, which used anonymous sources, Breitbart reported:

The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg published an article titled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.” The story also claimed that Trump skipped a 2018 visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris, where the fallen of the battle of Belleau Wood are buried, because he feared rain would ruin his hair. Goldberg’s sources were all anonymous.

The White House vigorously denied the report, and several officials who accompanied Trump on his trip to Europe in 2018 denied that the president had ever said anything like that. Public documents also support the idea that the president’s visit was canceled due to weather, not because the president worried about his hair.

Of course it turns out none of what was said in the scurrilous hit piece was true.

Others who were present during the trip also said the story was false, Breitbart reported:

The trip to the cemetery was canceled last-minute due to rain and fog preventing Marine One from safely taking the trip from Paris to the cemetery. It was also reportedly prohibitively difficult to travel 50 miles to the site via motorcade because it would require widescale traffic shutdowns in some of the busiest parts of Paris.

Jordan Karem, the president’s former body man who was present during the trip, weighed in on Twitter.

“This is not even close to being factually accurate. Plain and simple, it just never happened,” Karem wrote. “Again, this is 100 percent false. I was next to the president the whole day! The President was greatly disappointed when told we couldn’t fly there. He was incredibly eager to honor our Fallen Heroes.”

Senior Adviser to the President, Stephen Miller, who was also present for the trip, described the story as a “despicable lie.”

“The president deeply wanted to attend the memorial event in question and was deeply displeased by the bad weather call,” he said in comments to the Washington Examiner.

Former Counselor to the President Johnny DeStefano also denounced the story.

“I was on this trip. The Atlantic bit is not true. Period,” he wrote shortly on Twitter.

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders described the story as “total BS.”

“The Atlantic story on Donald Trump is total BS,” she wrote, “I was actually there and one of the people part of the discussion – this never happened.”

Sanders said she was “disgusted” by the attack published in the Atlantic, recalling the moments she witnessed President Trump meeting with veterans.

Exit question: Will The Atlantic get deplatformed and punished for pushing fake news or will the left continue to pretend it’s true?
