Newsweek Ignores Trump Visit to Afghanistan, Says POTUS was ‘Golfing and Tweeting’ Over Holiday

Newsweek was so desperate to diss The Donald that they didn’t even bother to review the facts.

Throughout much of President Trump’s first term, the Commander in Chief has been decrying the nonsense of the “fake news” media.

There are times that these lamentations could be up for some slight interpretation, surely, with the President using the phrase to lambast the mainstream machine as a whole rather than exposing singular and specific faults of the infotainment industry.

But then there are those times in which the idea of “fake news” is very, very literal, as was the case over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

“I thought Newsweek was out of business?” Trump wrote on Twitter, sharing a screenshot of the article and photos of him with the troops in Afghanistan posted by his son Donald Trump Jr.

The President’s son piled on as well, prompting the paper to take action.

“Fake news gonna fake!” Trump Jr. wrote.

The Newsweek story, first published at 10:16 a.m., was later updated to reflect the president’s visit.

“This story has been substantially updated and edited at 6:17 pm EST to reflect the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan,” read an editors note after Trump Jr. mocked the news outlet.

President Trump’s Thanksgiving trip to visit the troops in Afghanistan was an incredible feat of military and political stealth, as Trump slipped in and out of the war zone before anyone outside of the scope of his visit even knew.
