When President Donald J. Trump was unable to attend a WWI memorial even in France in November due to weather, he was widely ridiculed by detractors, many of whom suggested he was lying. But new documents obtained by BuzzFeed’s Jason Leopold via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request proves that the detractors were wrong – again.
“Wx will not support today’s flight,” said one of the documents obtained from the U.S. Navy, which is responsible for coordinating Trump’s travel on Marine One, the presidential helicopter.
“Wx” stands for weather.
Trump noted at the time that weather wouldn’t permit his visit.
“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!” Trump said on Twitter at the time.

Still, many armchair critics didn’t believe Trump.
“I helped plan all of President Obama’s trips for 8 years,” said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security advisor. “There was always a rain option. Always.”
“Two words: contingency plans. Previous White Houses made them,” said formerly-relevant GOP establishment commentator David Frum.
“Remember when Trump chose not to go to a Military ceremony because of rain in Paris,” said David Weissman, who was pumping up 2020 presidential candidate – polling at 0 percent – and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) for giving her announcement speech in the snow.
Trump was also ridiculed in the leftist media. The Washington Post, for example, said the following:
It was not completely clear why the Trumps were unable to attend. The cemetery is 50 miles from Paris. Perhaps the president was planning to travel on Marine One, which is occasionally grounded by the military.
But the sight of dignitaries arriving at other sites outside Paris, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, led some foreign policy analysts to speculate the U.S. commander in chief just wasn’t up for it.
The Atlantic, Frum’s new employer, attacked Trump too.
Once again, media types and political figures attacked Trump for something petty, and once again, they were proven wrong.

OUCH: CBS News Destroys ‘Lincoln Project’ Co-Founder Rick Wilson for Record of Extreme Hypocrisy
The establishment has turned on this political hack.
Long-time GOP political hack Rick Wilson has turned on his former party because of President Donald Trump, co-founding the Lincoln Project in an attempt to sabotage Trump’s chances at re-election.
However, Wilson’s Benedict Arnold routine has not impressed liberals. CBS News tore him apart in a recent animated clip showcasing his incredible hypocrisy. The animated hosts of “Inside the Hill” grilled Wilson and the Lincoln Project for being connected to the former administration of George W. Bush.
“We really miss Bush. He always did what was right for the country, that country being Saudi Arabia,” one of the hosts said.
Wilson retorted by attempting to get the conversation back to President Trump, whom he called “unquestionably the worst president in history.”
The hosts lampooned Wilson by juxtaposing the “bad” deficit increases, corruption, racism and countless deaths of Trump against the “good” deficit increases, corruption, racism and countless deaths of Bush.
“Ya know, I miss the Republican Party before it embraced Trump, back when it only laid the groundwork for him,” an animated host remarked.
The hosts noted that MSNBC hosts have coalesced around the Lincoln Project and supported globalist neoconservatives reinventing themselves as Democrats in the age of Trump. They brought up some of Wilson’s old offensive tweets against liberals, which made him squirm in his seat.
“Dear Nutroots lefties: You are Barack Obama’s bitch. You are pathetic little whores satisfied with crumbs and head-pats,” an old Wilson tweet from 2010 reads.
Wilson tried to distance himself from his old tweets, but the hosts continued to press him on his hypocrisy. They noted that the Lincoln Project spent 89.3 percent of its donations on overhead, which is far more than comparative operations, suggesting that the entire operation is a con to soak up money from suckers.
“You’re looking at the startup and acquisition costs from the first quarter. The second quarter is going to show that we have a massive amount of money escrowed in the bank for media and voter contact in the fall,” Wilson said in an attempt to explain his organization’s structure.
CBS News then debuted a mock-up ad in the style of the Lincoln Project that tore into the group’s advisors for supporting the atrocities of the Bush era.
“President Trump is the most incompetent corrupt president in history, and we have to do everything we can to stop him after compensating our strategists complicit in the deaths of countless innocent lives,” the fake ad stated.
“Stop this corrupt grifter ruining America. Donate to these savvy grifters who ruined it before and hope you don’t look into them,” the fake ad concluded.
The entire exchange can be seen here:

Wilson’s blistering by the fake news media shows that the anti-Trump neocons will never truly be accepted by the Democrats who they now placate.
