After berating the President on Christmas Day for not visiting the troops during “Christmastime,” NBC was forced to eat crow Wednesday when President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq.
“On Christmas Day, President Donald Trump took part in a long-running practice of presidents who called troops stationed around the country and the world,” NBC said in a Tuesday article. “But he broke from a recent tradition of actually visiting troops and wounded warriors. He did so in 2017, when he visited wounded troops at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Dec. 21.”
“By staying home on Tuesday, Trump became the first president since 2002 who didn’t visit military personnel around Christmastime,” the left wing charlatans continued.
On Wednesday, NBC watched in horror as their feigned outrage once again fell flat. Trump landed at Al-Asad Air Base, which is located just west of Baghdad in early afternoon, crushing the spirit of the formerly-respected news titan.
The “news outlet” still could not avoiding bashing the 45th President, though.
“The unannounced trip comes at a time of change in the region following the president’s announcement earlier this month that he will withdraw American troops from Syria — a heavily criticized move that prompted the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis,” it wrote in its Wednesday piece.
The fact that Trump had not visited the troops was widely shared on social media on Christmas day. The political left and its media propagandists, to be sure, do not give a hoot about the troops. Soldiers are simply political props for them, evidenced by their 180 degree reversal on foreign interventionism when Trump decided to withdraw the 7,000 troops from the endless war in Afghanistan and 2,000 more from Syria.
NBC issued an editor’s note from its Tuesday article criticizing the President, which is still live.
“On Wednesday, a day after this article was published, President Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq to greet U.S. troops. It was his first presidential visit to a combat zone,” the note said.
