Note: I wrote this before the latest despicable, dishonest smearing of the President, but that incident simplify magnifies my case.
Here is what National Security Adviser Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster said Monday in response to the latest Washington press corps hysteria:
“There’s nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people. The story that came out tonight as reported is false. The president and the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries including threats to civil aviation. At no time, at no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed. And the President did not discuss any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on-the-record accounts should outweigh anonymous sources. And I was in the room, it didn’t happen.”
This simply reinforces the following, which I wrote earlier today.
After almost four months of watching the news media’s unending dishonesty, hostility, and contempt toward the Trump administration, it is time to have a blunt conversation.
The President owes Americans the defense of the United States Constitution.
The President owes the American people a sound job as commander in chief, protecting the country.
The President owes the American people a dramatically stronger economy with more jobs, better take home pay, and increased opportunities for investment growth; which will help people prepare for retirement, strengthen pension funds, and guarantee Social Security’s solvency.
The President owes the American people a better health system with greater access, lower costs, and better health outcomes.
Indeed, the President owes the American people many things.
But the President does not owe anything to the Washington press corps and the left-wing hypocrites who dominate today’s news media.
