It’s Friday.

For Friday President Loser has tweeted 8 times and retweeted 0 times so far.

In his first tweet he brags about August’s Job Report that was released Friday.

After tweeting about Peace in the Middle East, he added this economic tweet.

President Gonna Lie, Deny, and Stick to it, in his second tweet compared a news article to the Steel Dossier.

On Thursday Jeffery Goldberg editor and chief for The Atlantic published an article that says President I like People Who Weren’t Captured has “repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members.”

Goldberg explains that according to four sources with firsthand knowledge of a discussion the day President Scared of Rain was suppose to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in November 2018 he said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.”

Goldberg also says that President He’s So Vain was worried his hair would be messed up, due to poor weather conditions.

Belleau Wood is a consequential battle in American history, and the ground on which it was fought is venerated by the Marine Corps. America and its allies stopped the German advance toward Paris there in the spring of 1918. But Trump, on that same trip, asked aides, “Who were the good guys in this war?” He also said that he didn’t understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the Allies.

Late Thursday President Liar-Denier denied the story via 3 tweets.

Narrator: Without Hesitation =’s lowering the flags at the White House for a day only to issue an order to lower them again until McCain’s funeral after he received harsh bi-partisan criticism from lawmakers and criticism from veterans groups.

Narrator: July 18th, 2015.

Goldberg quotes President Bone Spurs as saying at the time of McCain’s death; We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral. [When the flags were lowered in McCain’s honor] What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.

After Goldberg’s article was published AP News confirmed some of his reporting writing “A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments. The defense officials said Trump made the comments as he begged off visiting the cemetery outside Paris during a meeting following his presidential daily briefing on the morning of Nov. 10, 2018.”

Goldberg also reported that on Memorial Day 2017 President Empathy What’s That?, during his visit to Arlington with John Kelly, said “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”

The two men were set to visit Section 60, the 14-acre area of the cemetery that is the burial ground for those killed in America’s most recent wars. Kelly’s son Robert is buried in Section 60. A first lieutenant in the Marine Corps, Robert Kelly was killed in 2010 in Afghanistan. He was 29. Trump was meant, on this visit, to join John Kelly in paying respects at his son’s grave, and to comfort the families of other fallen service members.

But according to sources with knowledge of this visit, Trump, while standing by Robert Kelly’s grave, turned directly to his father and said, “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?” Kelly (who declined to comment for this story) initially believed, people close to him said, that Trump was making a ham-handed reference to the selflessness of America’s all-volunteer force. But later he came to realize that Trump simply does not understand non-transactional life choices.”

The New York Times reported late Thursday that, “People familiar with Mr. Trump’s comments say he has long scorned those who served in Vietnam as being too dumb to have gotten out of it, as he did through a medical diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels. At other times, according to those familiar with the remarks, Mr. Trump would marvel at people choosing military service over making money.”

The Washington Post reported that a former senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly confirmed “to The Washington Post that the president frequently made disparaging comments about veterans and soldiers missing in action, referring to them at times as “losers.” In one account, the president told senior advisers that he didn’t understand why the U.S. government placed such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserved what they got, according to a person familiar with the discussion.”

The story comes just days after a new Military Times poll taken of active-duty troops prior to the political conventions show that Democratic Nominee Joe Biden is favored over Incumbent Douchbag.

Biden weighed-in.

Biden’s son Beau who passed away after battling cancer, was an Iraq War veteran.

In other semi-related news, following a push since February 2020 it was reported Friday morning that the military paper Stars and Stripes has been ordered to shut down September 30th, 2020.
