The editor-at-large of the soon-to-be defunct Weekly Standard attacked President Donald J. Trump for praising students of the Naval Academy and West Point in a Sunday morning Tweet.
“If you genuinely respect those who serve and have served in the U.S. military, you’re repulsed by Trump’s fanboy military cheerleading. The kids playing in the Army-Navy game are impressive young men. As they’d be the first to say, they’re not ‘heroes.’ Trump cheapens everything,” said Trump-hating curmudgeon Bill Kristol.
Trump had sent an earlier Tweet calling it an “honor” to attend the annual Army/Navy football game, and calling the players, who are U.S. Servicemen, “heroes.” According to Kristol, who is blinded by disdain for Trump, they are not.
Kristol’s comment drew the ire of political commentators and other sane Twitter users.
“Imagine being so deranged by hatred of Trump that you feel compelled to attack him for praising those who attend the nation’s military service academies,” said Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist.
“I was there-tremendous cheers for him only surpassed by cheers for Sec Mattis. The reception he received surely didn’t fit your sour narrative,” said a user called @drspigot.

Kristol has been a Trump critic since he announced his candidacy for president, likely a cause of the downfall of his once-respected news magazine. Kristol, whose main beef with Trump is that he does not view the 45th President as a “true conservative,” recently founded a “conservative” non-profit called “Republicans for the Rule of Law,” which is funded by a leftist billionaire.
All in a days work for Kristol, who might consider packing it in before he forever tarnishes what is left of his legacy.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
