A day ago four of the leftist slugs who dispense propaganda for the anti-American globalists at NBC news reported, “President Donald Trump said he wanted what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a gathering this past summer of the nation’s highest-ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room.
It would be quite newsworthy if it were true, which it wasn’t, according to denials issued immediately by President Trump and a statement by Secretary of Defense Mattis later on Wednesday. Mattis issued a statement saying, “Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false. This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible.”
In what looks like an obvious effort to save face, at the 2:20 mark, NBC reporter and leftist press briefing room agitator Kristen Welker parsed words, dangling the lost credibility of their network on a claim that “NBC news has never reported the President actually called for an increase, just that he talked about it.”
She then goes on to issue a clarification that sounds an awful lot like a retraction, stating “There are no plans to increase the arsenal.” Obviously the implication of their report was that President Trump had called for the increase. If they were able to craft their statements in such a manner that they believe they have plausible deniability, that is just more proof that they are in the propaganda business, not the news business.
The title of the NBC article reads, “Trump Wanted Tenfold Increase in Nuclear Arsenal, Surprising Military.” Does Mattis need to issue another statement using the same words the lying libtards at NBC used in order to remove her ability to spin it by virtue of selecting a different synonym?
At the website Thesaurus.com, searching for a synonym for “call for” returns the word “want” as one of the most relevant choices. The NBC title certainly implies, as it no doubt was intended to, that President Trump was seeking to greatly increase our nuclear arsenal and that it was only the cooler minds that prevailed and kept him from acting recklessly.
Well now one of those “cooler heads” is agreeing with President Trump that NBC is lying, so they are retreating just as CNN was forced to do when their lies were exposed.
And since when did it become newsworthy or appropriate for the details of a private conversation among government leaders about national defense to be leaked to these libtard America-haters anyway?
Is the President of the United States supposed to clear everything with Lester Holt before he discusses it? Is playing devil’s advocate in a discussion or asking questions to become better informed somehow out of bounds now?
These mainstream leftist media scumbags are despicable. At what point do we finally start to ask not only how much of their false reporting is anti-America ideologically driven, but how much of it is intended to get the white guy? That seems to be the only crime President Trump has committed, he’s guilty of being white and the press seems to have a real problem with that.
