Fox News has joined the Associated Press and The Washington Post in confirming shocking details from the bombshell report in The Atlantic on President Donald Trump's contempt for American troops.

"The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance. Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against," Trump claimed, falsely stating the story had been refuted.

But now Fox News is confirming details in a thread posted on Trump's favorite social media platform:

NEW, @JenGriffinFNC confirms former Trump admin official confirms details in The Atlantic story, including quotes about veterans. When the President spoke about the Vietnam War he said, "It was a stupid war. Anyone who went was a sucker." — Jacqui Heinrich (@JacquiHeinrich) September 4, 2020


MORE from @JenGriffinFNC Regarding the President's July 4th military parade planning, during a planning at White House after seeing the Bastille Day parade in 2017, the President said regarding the inclusion of "wounded guys" "that's not a good look" "Americans don't like that." — Jacqui Heinrich (@JacquiHeinrich) September 4, 2020


Per @JenGriffinFNC, this is all acccording to a former senior Trump administration official who was in France travelling with the President in Nov 2018. — Jacqui Heinrich (@JacquiHeinrich) September 4, 2020


"…He questioned why he had to go to two cemeteries. 'Why do I have to do two?' His staff explained he could cancel, l but he was warned, 'They (the press) are going to kill you for this'." He (The President) was mad as a hornet when they did." Per @JenGriffinFNC reporting — Jacqui Heinrich (@JacquiHeinrich) September 4, 2020

President Trump  canceled a planned 2018 trip to a cemetery for American war dead in France  because of the weather and not because of disdain for the slain soldiers who are buried there or concern about how the weather would affect his hair, two sources told Fox News, despite a report from The Atlantic  making that claim.

Still, the details from that trip and other events described in the explosive piece remain a subject of dispute.

Two sources who were on the trip in question with Trump refuted the main thesis of The Atlantic's reporting -- that Trump canceled a trip to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, which is at the site of Belleau Wood, an important World War I battle, because he believed the dead soldiers to be "losers."

The White House had said at the time the decision was made because of poor weather for flying Marine One and the fact that the cemetery was too far a distance for a motorcade to drive.

One of the sources who refuted the Atlantic's reporting is not a fan of Trump. Both sources said that Trump was upset about not being able to go to Aisne-Marne and said they had never heard Trump refer to war dead at Aisne-Marne or in the battle of Bellau Wood as "losers" or "suckers."

WHITE HOUSE ATTACKS 'FALSE' ATLANTIC STORY ABOUT TRUMP INSULTING DEAD SOLDIERS 'WHAT A DISGRACE'

Both sources also noted that Trump was not worried about how the weather would affect his hair, as The Atlantic reported. Trump the next day stood in the rain for an hour at a different event.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired Marine General, attended the event on Trump's behalf along with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Marine General Joe Dunford and other White House officials. https://www.newsweek.com/why-donald-trump-didnt-visit-military-cemetery-france-white-house-blames-1211878

One has to wonder whether they flew or drove.  Obviously they had plenty of time to get there.

This does not amount to credible proof. Just another left wing smear job.

You do understand how, as a vet, I can totally believe this story considering all the shit he has said in the past right?

A tumultuous divorce between Fox and Trump.

This woman reporter is a little bit of an outlier on Fox. Most of the rest of their talking heads still have their own heads buried up Trump's ass.
