The Washington Post is in mourning over Clinton with latest anti-Trump article


Bringing up pre-election warnings from the left that it would be dangerous for Donald Trump to have control of the nation’s nuclear codes, the Washington Post on Thursday published a piece about Donald Trump’s recent remarks on North Korea which, as Breitbart points out, “referenced Hillary Clinton attack ads against Trump no less than three times in the space of a short article, while also quoting a top Clinton campaign official.”

Headlined “With ‘fire and fury,’ Trump revives fears about his possession of nuclear codes,” the article takes an analytical look at Trump’s threats to North Korea about the rogue regime’s military escalation while asserting that the threats are part of Trump’s impulsive nature.

The article cites sources on both sides of the dispute regarding whether or not President Trump is taking the right tone on North Korea. And it also includes references to a surprising number of pro-Clinton ads from last year.

By the third paragraph, the article states:

Last fall, Hillary Clinton’s ­campaign used as one of its final weapons a TV ad featuring a longtime nuclear missile launch officer who warned against voting for Trump: “I prayed that call would never come. Self-control may be all that keeps these missiles from firing.”

“Then, quick-fire, a series of clips of Trump on the stump: “I would bomb the s— out of them.” “I want to be unpredictable.” “I love war.”

The article goes on to cite polls suggesting that voters trusted Clinton more than Trump with nuclear weapons before stating, “The Clinton campaign ran ads focused on Trump as commander in chief throughout October, including one spot that showed Trump asking, ‘Why can’t we use nuclear weapons?’”

Jim Margolis, the Clinton campaign’s media adviser tells Post reporters, “One of the great concerns voters had, particularly independent voters, was the threat of somebody that impulsive, that erratic, that unprepared, having control over the nuclear codes.”

He adds, “There may have been a presumption that if elected, Trump would settle down, become more presidential, less crazy in his taunts, and that the cocoon of security advisers around him would keep him in check. Clearly, that presumption was wrong.”

The article eventually referenced another commercial bashing Trump and included reference to a Democratic ad from way back in 1964:

Another anti-Trump spot, made by a super PAC run by former senator Bill Bradley (D-N.J.), targeted Ohio voters and evoked the famous 1964 “Daisy” ad for President Lyndon B. Johnson that capi­tal­ized on fears that his Republican challenger, Barry Goldwater, was too reckless to be trusted with nuclear codes.

The article is part of a series called “The Debrief,” which is a way for the The Washington Post to offer “a reporter’s insights.” However, this article proves that most of those insights echo the same rhetoric we all heard last year from the Clinton campaign.

Last month, President Trump launched a Twitter attack against the left-leaning newspaper, which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Trump now calls it the “Amazon Washington Post,” and recently accused its reporters of having “fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad…..” on Twitter before comparing them to CNN, saying its “Fake News” stories about him are just as bad.

He followed those comments up with this provocative tweet: “Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?”

Notorious for leaking information from unnamed sources, the Post struck again last week when it published complete transcripts of President Trump’s highly-detailed phone calls with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions denounced the high-profile leaks, saying, “The culture of leaking must stop.”

Since January, Sessions reported that the Justice Department (DOJ) has “more than tripled the number of active leak investigations, as compared to the number pending at the end of the Obama administration.”

The attorney general said the DOJ has already charged four people with “unlawfully disclosing classified material or with concealing contacts with foreign intelligence officers.” In addition, the Justice Department has already received nearly as many criminal referrals involving unauthorized disclosures of classified information as in the previous three years combined.
