How convenient it is that The Atlantic has a supposed trove of damning material on President Donald Trump that they’ve been saving until now?
The paper has come under fire from the White House in recent days, after they published a troublesome article citing anonymous sources, some of whom claim that Donald Trump uttered some unthinkable opinions of fallen American Marines will on a diplomatic mission to France in 2018. The President and several staffers who were a part of that envoy have denied the claims being made by the paper, yet The Atlantic and other supposed witnesses stand by the story.
Now, in what is an overt and blatant bit of electorally-influenced timing, The Atlantic is threatening Trump again, stating that this is “only the beginning”.
Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, said his magazine’s story about Trump calling Americans who died in battle “losers” and “suckers,” was just the tip of the iceberg.
“I would fully expect more reporting to come out about this and more confirmation and new pieces of information in the coming days and weeks,” Goldberg told CNN’s Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” Sunday. “We have a responsibility and we’re going to do it regardless of what he says.”
The President was not happy with the paper, and made that known to the world over the weekend.
On Sunday, Trump fired back at The Atlantic, directly attacking its majority owner, Laurene Powell Jobs.
“Steve Jobs would not be happy that his wife is wasting money he left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine that is run by a con man (Goldberg) and spews FAKE NEWS & HATE,” Trump tweeted. “Call her, write her, let her know how you feel!!!”
As for whether or not America will take these anonymous sources to heart will be seen come November.
