Reporter Jeffrey Goldberg Addresses Trump’s “Loser” Remarks, Talks Using Anonymous Sources

"It has been a rough Labor Day weekend and the trump. White House where officials are absolutely full out freaking out about Thursday. Night's report in the Atlantic that trump had characterized Americans who died in war losers and suckers trump has spent the past four days repeatedly nine the story marshalling all kinds of people to. Come forward to knock it down he insisted today the quote an animal would say thing that the White House trotted out figures like Sarah Sanders who we know is lied to reporters multiple times to claim the report isn't true because they were there when trump didn't say the terrible things he allegedly said take they're hoping you don't think about that formulation too much. The main problem for the White House here is that the evidence supporting the story is pretty obvious and clear and almost overwhelming to anyone not inside the trump reality distortion bubble. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg reported that trump cancelled a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris back in two thousand eighteen partially because he worried his hair would become disheveled in the rain and partially because he did not respect the American war dead interred there. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the schedule visit trump said, why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers in a separate conversation on the same trip trump preferred to the more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as suckers for getting killed. Now, the sources in the story are anonymous you know anonymous sources are not as. Good. As name sources when you're evaluating something, but it doesn't mean that the claims came in on some anonymous tip line that no one knows where they came from. It means a reporter in this case, Jeffrey Goldberg spoke to people directly interviewed them and has agreed not to identify them in the story Jeffrey. Goldberg, will be here with me to talk about that in just a moment. His initial story has now been confirmed in part or in its entirety by reporters at. All okay. Remarkably a correspondent at Fox News included in that lineup whom trump promptly called on the network to fire. Some of those corroborating stories included even more damning details about the president like this one from the Washington Post quote the president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserve what they got and this from the New York Times people familiar Mr Trump's private conversations saying he has long scorned those who served in Vietnam as being too dumb to have gotten out of it as he did through medical diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels. Back in two thousand, nineteen trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testified the trump admitted to faking those bonds first telling cone quote you think I'm stupid I wasn't going to Vietnam. There's even more evidence that trump view soldiers at stupid or suckers Mary trump the president's knees wrote in a recent book that trump and threatened to disown his eldest son if don Jr. joined the military. She also says that her own Father Fred trump junior was mocked by donald trump because he fred trump junior decided to join the US air. National. Guard quote my father was frequently ridiculed for his career choices and disparaged for serving our country by both his father and by his brother Donald. Then, there's the fact that pretty much none of trump's top military officials past and present are backing the president up. I mean you really can't find anyone who's stepping forward to defend his character save he would never say anything like that they aren't disputing the story instead that's been left talking heads and former flax and loyalists. That's maybe not a huge surprise because trump allegedly said about all US servicemembers, hues very closely to what he said back in two thousand fifteen about one particular veteran Senator John McCain. War here or euro he's a war hero years he's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to. John. McCain was prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years host. Donald Trump avoided that war had a different experience in an interview in the nineties. He characterized his efforts to avoid transmitted diseases while sleeping with numerous women as quote, my personal Vietnam. An. Event with Union members today Joe Biden lambasted the president's comments an invoked zone Sun Beau who served in Iraq and then died from a brain tumor in two thousand fifteen. Those of served. Risk, their lives even gave their lives, our nation losers suckers. He's our heroes. Tell you something. My Bowl wasn't loser. For A sucker if that's I, talk about our veterans, you have no business being president of the United States of America. What's being entered into the record here to take a step back and look at all the evidence about Donald Trump. Shocking. Morally offensive. It's not surprising. It's about what we have come to expect. But. One big question that keeps pulling on my shoulders. Why are we learning about this now? What does it mean that we are? For more on that and the fallout from his incredible reporting joined by Jeffrey Goldberg He's the Editor in chief of the Atlantic and I jeff, maybe I start a little bit with. The reaction to this story from the White House you. There are stories that come out all the time about the president that are fairly scandalous incredibly scandalous. And one time they said it's fake news and they swatted away or the new cycle moved on, they do seem particularly freaked out. About this reporting. An particularly intent on attacking it what what is your sort of reading of the last three or four days of their reaction? Well he's a good question. First thing I would say is that. This is not an attack on these are not reports of an attack on site immigrants or black people or or something like that we expect from Donald Trump and something that his base might actually help him with his base. This could hurt him with his with his base You know the the the second thing is I. Think there's a lot of. Nervousness in the White House and again I won't I'm not commenting on anything having to do with my sourcing or other reporter's saw sourcing Fox. Washington Post whatever. I'm you know there's a there's a deep hostility and mistrust in the White House of. Current and former generals people who lead the military. We saw that today Donald Trump did something that I. I've never seen before he attacked his own a service chiefs. He attacked his own leaders of the Armed Forces on call? Them. I mean, even in the even in this sort of an Tasma, we are twenty twenty race that's still something but I think it has to do with the fact that This is the kind of accusation that sounds believable in also goes directly to. A core constituency that Donald trump obviously needs to Keep energized come November. Yeah we we should note that there's there's been polling of of active duty servicemembers in which he's he's underwater with them There's been an interesting sort of officer enlisted split, but he's been losing ground even with a enlisted members. He's gone for a net positive nine points and Net net net negative twelve points. You can see that there. That's the latest military times pulling. You just mentioned what he said today was pretty remarkable. Briefly, sort of like channeling kind of like left anti-imperialism vis-a-vis his own service chiefs although it's completely like made up and fabricated because he. In the next breath, he's constantly bragging about how big the Pentagon budget is and how Raytheon is making off like a bandit. So but I wanNA play that clip just to get your response to it take a listen to what he said. I'm not saying that military in love with me to soldiers are the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and everything else they. Happy. But we're getting out of the endless wars you know how we're doing. But here's the thing Jeff. They're not this drives me insane the where we have expanded our footprint, we've expanded bombings all the theaters, and this is an absolute con-. This idea that the Great Antiwar Donald Trump has some revolt on his hands on the generals. As, you will know the generals are usually more hesitant to go to war than not usually often more has to go to war than than civilian leaders for some obvious reasons. No, this was remarkable i. mean he sort of channeling. Start Sixty Bob Dylan lyrics here I pointed out on a show media today it's It's quite remarkable given that tomorrow there's a pretty good chance that he'll brag about how much money he's spending on military hardware, and of course, as you know, he's deeply transactional in love it when when foreign countries by our military equipment. So if you're looking for consistency in that particular clip, you're you're looking forward it in the wrong place it doesn't make sense in any kind of traditional understanding of of politics.

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"

"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story

Citing several anecdotes with multiple sources for each of them which the president is. said to have derided US service members who have died in combat as losers and suckers.

Quote if the revelations in today's Atlantic article or true there yet another marker of how deeply president trump and I disagree about the role of the president of the United States I've Long said that the nation we have many obligations but we have only one truly sacred obligation to prepare those we send into harm's way and to care for them and their families both while they're deployed and After they return home. That's the foundation of what Jilin I believe. That's why we've always prioritized the health and wellbeing of our service members, veterans, and military families. We have visited troops coming home wounded, and Walter Reed we've hosted wounded veterans in our home to share Thanksgiving meal and it's the proud parents of a son who served in Iraq. We've made supporting military spouses, caregivers and children are focus. Of Our service generations of American troops have shed blood around the world and defensive our freedoms and to protect vital interests from the frontlines of our own revolution to Bellawood to the Normandy beaches to the mountains of Afghanistan, the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and their willingness to serve our nation should be honored duty honor country. Those are the values that drive our servicemembers. Those are the values. That, have formed the core of America's defense for centuries in. If have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honor their sacrifices always

Thank you very much each and every one of them hero each and every one deserving of our thanks and our appreciation, and I know the ma- majority some ninety nine percent of Americans will never ever serve in the military. They just we have an all volunteer army. But I will tell you unless there's a draft, obviously. And all these people like during World War Two my father signed up. Just like everybody wanted to sign up. Everybody was ready to fight that that point especially after Pearl Harbor, and it is it is a sacrifice I want to get into this. What's going on? There's a huge axios. Article out today. And we better start paying attention to this because on so many different levels. This is going to be the future a headline on Fox, News dot com. House Democrats preparing a subpoena cannon for Trump related probes. What what is the one thing? I've been telling you that the Democrats during the election. They didn't wanna do Democrats never wanted to tell you what their real agenda was all about. And I kept saying what did they tell Maxine Waters, Maxine says, they keep telling me not to say it. But I'm gonna say it anyway impeach forty five. Now, just just don't say anything. And then of course, they just said we're going to help with healthcare that became the the final two week talking point look Democrats are or at each other's throats. Just so, you know, because they're apoplectic about the election results. And the fact that Trump didn't just win. He defied all the odds and went out and campaign, and assuming Florida's in the mix picked up these Senate seats, remember Obama lost six Senate seats. And sixty three house seats in two thousand ten in ninety four Bill Clinton lost eight Senate seats and fifty two house seats now is his first midterm election. Comparatively to think that Trump picked up all these Senate seats, we now know is important because there's the Democrats part of what their plan is they want to mobilize their hit list. They didn't want to talk about immigration. They don't wanna talk about specifics. They didn't want to remind you this healthcare, pre existing conditions that was pretty much the only point that they're willing to make it stop Trump, and the resistance didn't go out in the numbers they want, and it is infuriating to some of these Democrats that it all went down this way. By the way, it's hilarious. Watching Hillary flirting with the idea of running again, which I think is amazing. But when you look at what they're what they're doing here what they wanna do and what they're planning on doing. You know, it's one thing after another. They avoided this subject during the campaign. Here are the headlines that I just picked up today Democrats to probe Trump's treatment of CNN fake news, Amazon Washington Post in a triple threat at abuse of power inquiries, top democrat, this'll be Nadler. I assume says that he will investigate whether the White House interfered in the FBI's Cavanaugh probe. Democrats Nancy Pelosi saying we don't need Muller indictment to impeach Trump. We can do it. Anyway, they weren't saying any of this before the election. Byron York has a piece out of Dem's consider impeaching Trump GOP leaders regret pursuing Clinton now. Maybe they did because it ended up backfiring on them. But Adam Schiff saying Democrats plan to probe if Trump used power to punish CNN Washington Post. Nancy pelosi. Yeah. Well, as it relates to Muller, and this new acting g Whitaker's appointment does does violence to the constitution. You don't do all of this not one thing, not one agenda item. That is going to help the continue to continue the progress that we've made now some of you, did, you know, it here my warnings in the warnings of others some of you, you should feel guilty. If you didn't get out and vote. We're lucky it came out as good as it. Did. We really are. You know, you got the House Democrats that'll be running the show. Look, it's like a who's who need a lowly eighty one years old. She's going to be appropriate committee. Adam Schiff, great. He's taken over for Devon newness as the chairman of the house intelligence committee Elijah Cummings oversight and government reform committee, and they're gonna be subpoena. Subpoenaing Trump every second every minute of every day Jerrold, Nadler, seventy one I mean, this is like a who's who of people that have been around forever and Maxine Waters other. I didn't know she was eighty years old. But anyway, she's expected to chair the committee of oversight. She's already said we're gonna do to you. What you did to us whatever that means because she's obviously looking over Wall Street, etc. And all of the most liberal the single most Liberal Democrats will be running these committees. Frankly, there are no moderates left in the Democratic Party. They just aren't there. You have a top House Democrat on the Amtrak. Acela train Jerrold Nadler overheard discussing Kavanagh's impeachment and all the investigations into Trump. Just crazy. So this is what the future is going to be as the days weeks months. Go four this is what they were going to do. I'm going to predict something here. They're going to overreach. They're gonna misinterpret the election results, although they are kind of battling big time amongst themselves about where they are as a as a party. You know, it it's their Blue Wave became a ripple, and they didn't expect the the red wave for the Senate. And you know, all right. So they picked up a couple of governorships and maybe their state gains. What they're going to go for more gun control. That means the lose the next election and marijuana's going to be legal in most states. That's probably what what happens the hell out a great article about how Democrats. As a top twenty twenty battle after blowing the chance at the Blue Wave. And I don't know how the Democrats are reacting to this. But the Wall Street Journal piece on Hillary Clinton is just hilarious to me. It says Hillary will run again, that's the headline reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand Clinton will easily capture the twenty twenty nomination. I'm not so sure that's the case. But if you know, that's what they think they need to do. That's the person they want I guess more power to them. All right. Gotta take a quick break here. Eight hundred nine four one Sean toll-free telephone number. You wanna be a part of the program, by the way, congressman Steve Scalise joins us at the bottom of the hour. We'll talk about this and much more. And obviously keeping an eye on Florida and Georgia and the Senate race and the governor's race and the Arizona race.

He defied all the odds and went out and campaign, and assuming Florida's in the mix picked up these Senate seats, remember Obama lost six Senate seats and sixty three house seats in two thousand ten in ninety four Bill Clinton lost eight Senate seats and fifty two house seats now is his first midterm election it, okay? Comparatively to think that Trump picked up all these Senate seats, which we now know is important because there's the Democrats part of what their plan is they they want to mobilize their hit list. They didn't want to talk about immigration. They don't wanna talk about specifics. They didn't want to remind you this healthcare, pre existing conditions that was pretty much the only point. That they're willing to make it stop Trump and the resistance didn't go out in the numbers. They want it is infuriating to some of these Democrats that it all went down this way. By the way, it's hilarious. Watching Hillary flirting with the idea of running again, which I think is amazing. But when you look at what they're what they're doing here. What they wanna do and what they're planning on doing it. Oh, it's one thing after another. They avoided this subject during the campaign. Here are the headlines that just picked up today Democrats to probe Trump's treatment of CNN fake news, Amazon Washington Post in a triple breaded abuse of power inquiries, top democrat, this'll be Nadler. I assume says that he will investigate whether the White House interfered in the FBI's Cavanaugh probe. Democrats Nancy Pelosi saying we don't need Muller indictment to impeach Trump. We can do it. Anyway, they weren't saying any of this before the election. You know, Byron York has a piece out his Dem's consider impeaching Trump, GOP leaders regret pursuing Clinton, maybe they did because it ended up backfiring on them. But Adam Schiff saying Democrats plan to probe if Trump used power to punish CNN Washington Post. Nancy pelosi. Yeah. Well, as it relates to Muller, and this new acting G Whitaker's appointment does does violence to the constitution. You don't have all of this not one thing, not one agenda item. That is going to help the continue to continue the progress that we've made now some of you did you hear my warnings and the warnings of others some of you, you should feel guilty. If you didn't get out and vote. We're lucky came out as good as it. Did. We really are. You know, you got the House Democrats that'll be running the show. Look it up. It's like a who's who need a lowly eighty one years old. She's going to be the appropriations committee, Adam Schiff, right? He's taken over for Devon newness as the chairman of the house intelligence committee Elijah Cummings oversight and government reform committee, and they're gonna be subpoenaing Trump every second every minute of every day Jerrold, Nadler, seventy one I mean, this is like a who's who will people that have been around forever and Maxine Waters other. I didn't know she was eighty years old. But anyway, she's expected to chair the committee of oversight. She's already said we're gonna do to you. What you did to us whatever that means because she's obviously looking over Wall Street, etc. And all of the most liberal v. Single most Liberal Democrats will be running these committees. Frankly, there are no moderates left in the Democratic Party. They just aren't there. You have a top House Democrat on the Amtrak. Acela train Jerrold Nadler overheard discussing Kavanagh's impeachment and all the investigations into Trump. Just crazy. So this is what the future is going to be as the days weeks months. Go forward. This is what they were going to do. I'm going to predict something here. They're going to overreach. They're gonna misinterpret the election results, although they are kind of battling big time amongst themselves about where they are as a as a party. You know, it it's their Blue Wave became a ripple, and they didn't expect the the red wave for the Senate. And you know, all right. So they picked up a couple of governorships, and maybe their state gains me what they're gonna go for more gun control. That means the lose the next election and marijuana's going to be legal in most states. That's probably what what happens the hill at a great article about how Democrats face a top twenty twenty battle after blowing the chance at the Blue Wave. And I don't know how the Democrats are reacting to this. The Wall Street Journal piece on Hillary Clinton is just hilarious to me. It has Hillary will run. Again, that's the headline reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand Clinton will easily capture the twenty twenty nomination. I'm not so sure that's the case. But if you know, that's what they think they need to do. That's the person they want I guess more power to them. I gotta take a quick break here. Eight hundred nine four one Sean toll-free telephone number. You wanna be a part of the program, by the way, congressman Steve Scalise joins us at the bottom of the hour. We'll talk about this and much more. And obviously keeping an eye on Florida and Georgia and the Senate race and the governor's race and Arizona race. Hey, listen.
