Yemen, "Fake News", Trump's Congressional Address

A President embarks on a war with all media other than conservative media and crackpot Youtube broadcasters. 

If you need an example, follow Trump's failed Navy Seal mission in Yemen. I have heard reports Trump authorized the mission of over dinner. I have heard and read other reports he wasn't present in the Situation Room as the mission unfolded.

Let's checkout an NBC News report from last night.


"Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn't even barely a week into [President Trump's] administration?" Bill Owens, whose youngest son Ryan was killed during the raid, said. "For two years prior ... everything was missiles and drones (in Yemen)....Now all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?"  
A senior Congressional official briefed on the matter said the Trump administration has yet to explain what prompted the rare use of American ground troops in Yemen......

Once we lived in a nation with national leaders who subscribed to that age-old adage: "The buck stops here." Apparently, 63 million Trump supporters and 75 million third party voters inclusive of nonvoters, do not internalize lingering affinity for the bucks stops here. Their newly elected president certainly has no inner core with fissures of accepting he authorized the failed Yemen raid.

Watch a snippet from Trump's over the top out of character (for Trump) and minus any level of veracity Congressional Address on Tuesday night. MSNBC's Chris Hayes broadcast a segment regarding a US President who is so outside of the box, he has no box.

While the vast majority of Americans know the truth regarding a spineless president who won't accept his responsibility for the failed mission it is refreshing to find certain national media explored the horrors of the failed raid as well as Trump's use of the dead Navy Seal's vwife.  Vox linked, here.

Is there any wonder why the Trump White House is so consumed with labeling most of US media as purveyors of "fake news?"
