Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin said Friday she spoke with two top officials who confirmed “key details” of the stunning report in The Atlantic about alleged comments of President Donald Trump’s about dead soldiers.

Griffin said Friday, “I’ve spoken with two U.S. senior officials who were on the trip to France who confirmed to me key details in the Atlantic article and the quotes attributed to the president.”

One of those sources — a former Trump administration official — apparently told Griffin that Trump said of Vietnam, “It was a stupid war. Anyone that went was a sucker.”

Griffin continued:

“The president would say about American veterans, ‘What’s in it for them? They don’t make any money.’ The source said, ‘It was a character flaw of the President: he could not understand why someone would die for their country, not worth it.’ Regarding the French trip to mark the end of WWI, according to this former official, the president was not in a good mood. French President Macron had said something that made him mad, he questioned why he had to go to two cemeteries. ‘Why do I have to do two?’ His staff explained he could cancel, but he was warned they — they press — are going to kill you for this. The president was mad as a hornet when they did, according to this source.”

Griffin also reported, “Regarding the president’s July 4th military parade planning, during a planning session at the White House after seeing the Bastille Day parade in 2017, President Trump said regarding the inclusion of wounded guys, ‘That’s not a good look. Americans don’t like that.’”

The White House and some Right Wing media outlets are spinning like crazy to either debunk this reporting or to minimize its impact but that is having negligible results. 

Trump was pissed off by this reporting that he lashed out at the reporter Jennifer Griffin:

“Fox News is gone?” WTH does that mean?

Trump could not help but weigh in on it yet again this morning:

Donny also, at one point, suggested that the source might have been his former Chief of Staff, and this is what he said about him courtesy of USA Today:

“I know John Kelly. He was with me, didn’t do a good job, had no temperament, and ultimately he was petered out,” Trump told reporters during a press briefing. “He got eaten alive. He was unable to handle the pressure of this job.”

So which is is Trump?

Is the whole thing a fraud, or did it come from a decorated Marine Corps general who cracked under the pressure of trying to keep you in check?
