Rachel reporting now that Trump was behind plans to kill "Stars and Stripes"

"President Trump, for whatever reason, has been hell bent on killing it off, has been working on it all year. But today, he finally relented and said 'I'm going to make sure Stars and Stripes stays in existence'."

Also she broke custom and showed footage of Fox's coverage of Trump's "military are suckers and losers" scandal (with Fox essentially and totally confirming the validity of the entire story).

The opposite is true, but the sources are Rachel MadCow and her bottle, +/- a few bottle-buddies.

Then I am 100% sure that Trump was not behind plans to kill the "PRINT" edition of Stars and Stripes.


When has that fella Madcow ever been proven to be correct?

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."

BZZZZZZZZZT!!! Wrong!

Didn't the people on Fox say they couldn't confirm the most damning accusation in the story? The part they confirmed was the line about 'Why did they serve?", which is more ambiguous and possibly rhetorical.

White House Shutting Down Stars And Stripes? Not So Fast

Quote
When this plan was initially announced earlier this week, I had more than a few qualms about it. The proposal in question involved ending the publication of the military newspaper Stars and Stripes. The paper has been around for as long as I can remember and back in the day it was one of the only news sources available for many military members, particularly those in the Navy. So why shut it down now? And more to the point, whose idea was this? According to NPR, the decision came from the office of the Secretary of Defense, but it was caused by the failure of the Senate to include funding for the publication in next year’s defense budget.
...
I’m guessing this was little more than a clerical oversight in the Senate version of the appropriations bill. The cost of producing, printing and distributing Stars and Stripes inside the military doesn’t even add up to a rounding error in the total military budget. They spend significantly more on coffee. As it turns out, however, our men and women in uniform probably don’t need to worry about it. It seems that nobody informed the President of this decision, and when Trump heard about it he quickly slammed the door on the idea

The United States of America will NOT be cutting funding to @starsandstripes magazine under my watch. It will continue to be a wonderful source of information to our Great Military!

Of course, as my signature quote says .....
