Pathetic: David Frum tries to tie Trump to Manchester terror attack

In an apparent effort to further stoke anti-Trump hate, The Atlantic senior editor and former Bush official David Frum attempted to link the horrific terror attack in England’s Manchester Arena to President Donald Trump.

“As we mourn Manchester, remember: for a moment of ignorant boasting, the president betrayed one of the West’s best sources inside ISIS,” he said in a tweet.

Twitchy noted that Frum also thinks President Trump conducted a coup to win the Oval Office and was incensed by that now-infamous ice cream scoops story.

Newsbusters added:

Many of the respondents to Frum’s tweet pointed out the lunacy of this statement and specifically how it was the news media that informed the world about who had provided valuable ISIS intel to the United States (the Israelis).

As this writer stated on Twitter, Frum’s lunacy can be derived from a devotion to the anti-Trump cause that went from reasonable concerns about Trump to full-blown hysteria and obsessive rage to anything and everything both Trump and Trump supporters say or do.

Others weren’t impressed with Frum’s outrageous take:

Short answer: No.





According to the BBC, witnesses who spoke to the media said:

Andy Holey, who had gone to the arena to pick up his wife and daughter who had been at the concert, said: “As I was waiting, an explosion went off and it threw me about 30 feet from one set of doors to the other set of doors.

“When I got up I saw bodies lying on the ground. My first thought was to go into the Arena to try to find my family.

“When I couldn’t find them, I went outside with the police and fire and looked through some of the bodies to try and find my wife and daughter.

“I managed to find them eventually and they’re OK.

“It was definitely an explosion and it was some force. It happened near the box office at the entrance to the Arena.”

So far, police have confirmed confirmed 19 dead and 50 injured in what appears to be a suicide bombing.

According to CNN, a Western law enforcement official said that a male at the scene in Manchester has been identified as the probable suicide bomber.

“A US official said a suicide bombing is now considered to be the “likely” reason for the blast,” CNN added.
