(UPDATED) Cadet Bone Spurs Will Find The Strawberries

Hair Füror (H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D)

Lord Damp Nut is going nuts, part infinity.

CNN tells us…

President Trump disparaged his former chief of staff John Kelly when asked why he hasn’t spoken out about a bombshell story in The Atlantic magazine that reported President Trump disparaged US troops. Trump denies the accusations in the report and CNN has not independently verified the reporting.

…which you can listen to here:

The NYTimes:

“Much to the consternation of friends and associates who have been pushing him to speak out, Mr. Kelly continued his silence on Friday about a report in The Atlantic that the president had privately referred to American troops killed in combat as ‘losers’ and ‘suckers.’”

“Mr. Kelly refused on-the-record interview requests about his recollection of comments Mr. Trump had reportedly made when Mr. Kelly was with him on a 2018 trip to France.”

That sure sounds like he’s talking off the record, n’est-ce pas?

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie leads:

AMID ALL THE FURIOUS responses to the Atlantic article alleging that President DONALD TRUMP had called American troops “suckers” and “losers,” one thing leaps out: You didn’t see Republican members of Congress leaping to defend the president’s character.

SOME OF THIS may be the late summer recess talking. But I’m told telephones and the internet still work outside of Washington — and Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill did not exactly rally to his defense. Sen. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.), for one, managed to praise the president for saving the military publication Stars & Stripes, but said nothing directly about the big story White House aides and loyal alumni were scrambling to discredit. Other prominent GOP members ignored the subject altogether.

“The president privately raged about The Atlantic’s article on Friday morning, and advisers were panicked about how to counter it. They feared it was the beginning of a constant drip of negative stories from disenchanted former officials that could sway voters. While Mr. Trump demanded that allies knock down the article, aides recognized that few senior military officers were willing to openly defend the president.”

Oh, and while we’re at it, Scissorhead Calico Jack had the tweet of the night (to me, anyway) that ties the on-going mystery of why Comrade Stupid never bothered to ask his Kremlin Paymaster about the bounties:

    At the risk of sounding repetitious, in Aesop’s Fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf in the end, the boy gets eaten by the wolf. Yum.

    Salacious doesn’t mean shocking. It means “lustful”, when describing something like a book or an article, sexually suggestive, lasciviously scandalous. I haven’t seen anything like that from the Atlantic article — and I do count on our media to ferret out the naughty bits first thing.

    This is not an uncommon misunderstanding. Even Rachel Maddow didn’t know the proper usage at one point.
