But the Unranium deal?

OK, let’s discuss…


Trump makes everything worse….

Timeline:

 — Oct. 4: Four soldiers were killed in Niger.

— Oct. 5: Sarah Sanders conveyed “thoughts and prayers” for the fallen service members.

— Oct. 6: Fox News Radio’s Jon Decker asked about Niger at the W.H. briefing, noting that “there’s been no response to this by the president, no tweet from the president, no statement.”

 — Oct. 7: This is when the news coverage really tapers off. Very few mentions across the national news media…

— Oct. 10: On “The Lead,” Jake Tapper points out that “while President Trump has tweeted dozens of times since last Wednesday,” he “has not tweeted a single thing, nor spoken publicly about the four U.S. soldiers who were killed…”

— Oct. 12: Chris Cuomo on “New Day:” “Please look at the service members on your screen. They all gave their lives in Niger for this country.” He said Trump has not mentioned them, and “it’s something that needs to be called out.”

— Oct. 12: Joe Johns told Cuomo: “I have actually reached out to the press office here at the White House to ask why the president has said not anything at all…” No response…

[…]

— On Wednesday afternoon, CNN’s Gregory Krieg wrote: “Trump and co. somehow managed to make the phone call controversy worse…”

— Then came the WashPost’s scoop: “Trump promised $25,000 to a grieving military father in a phone call. The check hasn’t arrived.” Initially the W.H. declined to comment… But once the story came out…

— …The W.H. responded by saying that it was “disgusting” that “the media” was bringing this up. But it seems the check was only sent on Wednesday because the Post inquired. Seriously. CNN’s Dan Merica and Kaitlin Collins have details here…

 — Flashback: June 1, 2016: “Big Trump checks to vets groups sent on day of media report”

— Rachel Maddow‘s Wednesday night monologue: “Trump not wanting to talk about what happened in Niger makes me really want to know what happened in Niger…

— S.E. Cupp on HLN: “If you wanted answers about Benghazi, you should want answers about Niger…”

— Jay Rosen tweeted: “Example of how the baseline expectation for the press should be: if this president said it, it’s probably untrue…”

Now look at the last 24 hours….

It is alleged Trump said a terrible thing….

He denies and says he has proof…

He lied.

The soldier’s Mom emerges…

Here is how it plays out from here…

Trump and his Administration hem and haw about this for another week, the widow comes out and calls the President a liar. The President then weakly acquiesces or sends John Kelly to do so. Trumps defenders look like morons.

A complete and utter disaster.


This is not Benghazi….


The NFL has fumbled…

Roy Moore just got 10 more votes…


Trump bails on compromise, after flopping around for 2 days…


 

Let’s look at media bias…


Me too?

He’s right…


Mayor Battle is not a happy camper…
