Trump Tweet: Let me throw the secret service under the bus




By the way, when the helicopter couldn’t fly to the first cemetery in France because of almost zero visibility, I suggested driving. Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown. Speech next day at American Cemetery in pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!

1. What is the "fake news"

Did he go to the "first cemetery" in France?

3. He didn't go to first cemetery where memorial ceremonies were scheduled with other leaders

Because of the immense ridicule and PR fallout that occurred, his entourage took him to the American cemetery the next day in the rain for a photo op to try and make up for his wimping out on the memorial of the previous day where Trudeau and others including John Kelly paid their respects. So any coverage on TV of him speaking in rain in front of white crosses occured at the photo op trip he did to try and make up for his not showing up with other world leaders the previous day. This was over in France. He did not go to Arlington yesterday.

5. Other world leaders were able to go, but I guess the Marine One helicopter can't fly in light rain.

8. well, seriously

it is our military industrial complex and if it's true to form another billion or so will enable it to fly in mist. Do we have radar or sonar yet?

13. And this is after Trump said he will never forgive Obama for depleting the military. Once again,

he is a laughing stock to the rest of the world, but still a hero to about 40% of Americans.

10. He blamed secret service. That means he was scared of something no one else was scared of.

Either that or he's lying. Nah, he'd never do that!

But I believe him.

14. Was there pouring rain at the American cemetery the next day?

Or was it another drizzly day?
