Trump Thinks Fox News Should Fire This Reporter

President Trump has called on Fox News to fire one of its own reporters after she claimed he made unsavory remarks about the military.

The Atlantic magazine claimed Trump called soldiers who died in action during World War I were losers and suckers when he skipped a scheduled trip to a military cemetery in France which was missed due to bad weather, according to the Administration.

Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin claimed two former Trump administration officials confirmed to her that The Atlantic’s account of the incident was correct (Washington Examiner):

“Griffin, citing two former senior Trump administration officials, confirmed that Goldberg’s report was true in regard to disparaging veterans and not wanting to visit the cemetery. While Griffin’s reporting did not specifically confirm the “losers” and “suckers” comments, she reported that Trump said that anyone who fought in the Vietnam War was a “sucker,” citing a former senior U.S. official. The “suckers” comment alleged in the Atlantic’s report was in regard to U.S. Marines in World War I.”

Here’s her tweet:

 

President Trump responded saying the network should fire Griffin:

“All refuted by many witnesses. Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never called us for comment. [Fox News] is gone!”

Along with Trump’s comments, he tweeted an article from Breitbart titled “Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Did Not Confirm the Most Salacious Part of Atlantic Story”.

According to Breitbart, Griffin only confirmed part of the story, but not the comments American’s buried in Aisne-Marne American Cemetary in France were “losers” and “suckers”:

But Griffin said she could not confirm “the most salacious” part of the Atlantic report, which claimed that Trump had called World War I soldiers buried at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris “losers” and “suckers.”

Notably, Griffin did not tweet that she had failed to confirm the headline claim of the Atlantic piece, which was titled: “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’.”

Some of Griffin’s colleagues, including Bret Baier, have defended Griffin’s journalistic integrity. Baier called her a “great reporter” and said she is a “total class act”.

Resurfaced Video Bolsters Fox News Reporting That Trump Called Pentagon Leaders ‘Losers’ and ‘Babies’

During a November 5, 2016 speech in Tampa, Trump launched into the familiar routine — the premise of which is that ISIS would have been completely surprised at an attack on their greatest stronghold in Iraq had no inkling been given by U.S. military leaders — by saying “Whatever happened to the element of surprise? The element of surprise?” and derisively declaring “What a group of losers we have. And now it’s a very tough battle.”

So the report by Griffin is in fact a lie. She took statement regarding rules of engagement in the Obama administration and applied them to another instance. Everyone knows that the military is of top importance to Trump. He has done more for the military than any other President in recent memory. This reporter, like most reporters these days, chose to twist the truth to fit her anti-Trump narrative. He is right, she should be fired.

She is closely tied to the Pentagon and the war hawks there, they are her friends. She was trying to protect them because like the war hawks, war makes her much more valuable as the link to the Pentagon. Sorry for her that she acted just like the politicians and generals, money.

President Trump was obviously referring to the “group of losers” in the Obama Administration. That bunch of morons would screw up a wet dream. The Trump Admin did in 2 1/2 years in the middle east what the Obummer losers couldn’t get done in 8 years. Typical parsing and twisting of words the lying, conniving media has turned into an art form in attacking President Trump.

Why do people bring what was said in 2016, I do understand its election time. I am sure in the past, previous Presidents have said things which may not be appropriate. Move on and bring what was positively spoken/ or done. Our country is already doing down with all riots, politicians saying stuff which does not sound good Please think of being together and uniting not dividing. Please join hands positively, we will never agree. There has been no President, V.P, congress person or senators who are always correct 100%. Just work on making America Great/ Great Again. May God Bless our great country USA and our President Trump.

Anonymous sources told me that the anonymous sources of he Atlantic magazine article, were non other than Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer . This is how fake news gets started. The Democrats call the news sources with a fictitious article and then promote it as fact. Then they keep the fake story alive for a few days, hoping that the story has to be debased by Republicans, thereby restricting the Trump campaign from promoting their campaign promises.

The most important question is “who is the source”and “what is the news outlet name” the answers are Jeffrey Goldberg and The Atlantic magazine, thus for Jennifer Griffin that should have raised a red flag, instead she ran with it, big mistake for an experienced reporter like her, no excuses, she needs to accept the error and retract the piece, otherwise if proof of a political agenda surfaces, then needs to be fired.

We seem to have only Jennifer Griffin’s word for that. If she really wants to be a fair and balanced reporter for Fox, she should be calling those two sources out. I do note that they are “former Trump admin officials”, who would not be above having an ax to grind with the President. If she or they have nothing to hide why are they afraid to come out of the proverbial closet??? I agree with the President, Fox should be getting rid of this hack reporter. No one needs insinuation and innuendo to back a story. As far as Brett Baier defending her is concerned, he too is not above the use of fabrication.

I agree with Trump. I watched her interview and was shocked. she lied through her teeth. her body language was she knew she was fake newsing her story and showed her true colors. she’s a assocrat and was gonna hit Trump before his bump puts biden in the basement. body language, voice spoke volumnes that she was being dishonest and would probably lose her job but she was up for the chance to harm Trump. And her next taling point was on the phone like she knew she did something wrong and needed to hide. totally lost any respect for her. and now question anything she said in past and will never believe her in the future. Sad that thou that fox never reminded nation that Trump tried a number of times to apologize to McCain but he wouldn’t be a bigger man. I was sad cause I liked McCain but agree. dems had him crossing the aisle constantly yet dems will NEVER cross the aisle. And fox never reminded the nation that Trump ya, said something insensitive. Not only did he try a number of times to apologize. they also reported that he’s the type that if you hit him he hits back. And that is were the McCain issue came from McCain hit first.
