    A 'Reporter' reports what happens. Not speculate what MAY happen and disparage those involved
    __________________________________________________

    Newsweek ran a completely speculative report about midday which basically was a thinly-veiled hit piece, saying that Trump would be “tweeting and golfing” at Mar-a-Lago. But in fact, he had already landed in Afghanistan.

    The report by Jessica Kwong, the “political reporter covering the Trump administration and family,” also claimed he would be be having a 24 course meal like prior Thanksgivings (no, he and his family in prior years ate from what appears to be the Mar-a-Lago club selection with a choice of different entrees and desserts, obviously not eating a “24 course” meal). But phrasing it that way was meant to paint a view of excess and overindulgence.

    While noting what Trump had done on the past two Thanksgivings as president, Kwong managed to leave out the critical detail that he also visited troops at a Coast Guard station both years and delivered meals.

    The news about Trump’s visit to Afghanistan broke just after 2:00 p.m. ET. But Newsweek didn’t correct the story until 6:17 p.m.

    Kwong called publishing the completely speculative report an “honest mistake.” No, it’s not an “honest mistake” to run a story that’s not based on any facts.

    Credit where it’s due: Trump in Afghanistan was on front page of USA Today.
    Should give the libs some heartburn that he actually got fair coverage from a tried and true lefty source.

    The majority of news agencies without a doubt hold back on anything considered a positive when it comes to Trump. The article quoted was not an "honest mistake", they knew exactly what they were doing. Glad to see he visited the troops on this Holiday.

    Trump was at Mar-a-Lago but he snuck away. So you bash a report saying he was at Mar-a-Lago?

    Must be a slow news day.

    Trump went to Afghanistan to spend Thanksgiving with the troops?

    There it is, libturds... the smoking gun. The proof that Trump is unfit and should immediately be impeached. He abandoned his post in DC to go gallivanting off into the wild on some farcical quest for a second scoop!

    IMPEACH HIM...IMPEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The story was pure leftist hate propaganda. It was never a "mistake". As a source of news, Newsweak has no integrity whatsoever. It's may as well be named "Pravda West". It was aimed at the non-thinking Democrats like the posters here who would have swallowed this bs whole and presented here as documented fact.
    No wonder the Democrats on this forum think the Pelosi crowd has proof of wrongdoing by Trump, with "news" sources this dishonest.

    Hey, he needed some footage for political ads. So he popped in for a photo op, and quickly popped out. Back to the golf course he goes.

    P.S. He did say that the Taliban want to make a deal “very badly.” Just like China, North Korea, Iran, etc.

    He is the greatest president in history. We are in the greatest economy in history, ALL because of him. America is now RESPECTED around the world for the first time since Reagan was in office.

    Only Trump's critics are idiots, and there aren't that many of them. They just have big mouths.

    He truly is the greatest president of all time. He is also the greatest Commander In Chief of all time.

    Not quite “Thanksgiving.” That implies he spent the day there. He swooped in, got the photo op, and swooped out.

    Throughout US history we have awaited a president who told 13,000 lies in less than three years, so we would have the “greatest president ever.”
