Why does the press allow this? [View all]

Trump today made a fool of himself further on the Charlottesville failures of himself and his administration, but the REAL story is the nonsense he spouts and NEVER gets challenged on from the press...

Trump on Robert E. Lee: "Whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals." Then claims active duty generals told him Lee was their "favorite general."

OK, so first off EVERYONE knows is a favorite trope of Trump's sick mind...right up there with literally everything he touches, talks about or is involved with being the "greatest/biggest of all-time, maybe perhaps in forever".

That is bad enough, but it is more of a verbal tic than an affront to the truth any more...we KNOW he is a pathological liar and narcissist, but the bolded part above is what bugs me more...

WHO are these "active duty generals"?
Will they confirm that they met with you to discuss Civil War generals and monuments?
Where are they stationed?
Do these "active generals" frequently converse with the President regarding non-military mission topics?
Did they offer this up to you or were you asking them leading questions?
Under what conversation did the President of the United States engage the generals of the people's army in spit-balling about Robert E. Lee, the Civil War and ranking of US generals in history?
Did any of them seem to be on the verge of secessionist reverence for the criminal Lee?
Who was their second favorite general - Stonewall Jackson, Benedict Arnold (ok...NOT a general, but you understand the question, right?)?
What was their position on Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan leadership and generals? (somewhat more contemporaneous concerns of note for an active duty to discuss and opine on for his Commander in Chief, no?

Challenge that bucket of pus to NAME NAMES when he lies like that, make him stammer, make him retreat, make him angry, make him look like the fool he is...STOP letting him say patently untrue things to your faces and then act like it was not a lie. 10,000+ lies in 2+ years and ZERO guts from the assembled "media". These people are lucky I am not their editor or boss, they'd be out on their asses and unemployable in the industry for being such hacks.

Yeah, biased media? What a load of shit...
