Well, now. Breitbart coming at Trump from the other side. What will poor Donnie do?
Breitbart seems ready for one of Steve Bannon’s famed “wars.”
Just minutes after President Donald Trump concluded his Afghanistan policy speech Monday night, the conservative site took an aggressive, critical approach to the address and Trump’s new policy. A banner headline blasted the president’s decision to extend the U.S. military commitment in Afghanistan as a “flip-flop” that “reverses course.”
Articles likened him to his predecessor, President Barack Obama — a known sore spot for Trump.
Gonna be interesting to watch the Master Negotiator get himself out of the jam when his base starts unloading on him from the right.
“Trump’s ‘America First’ Base Unhappy with Flip-Flop Afghanistan Speech,” blared one headline.
The lead of the main story contained a series of subtle digs: “President Trump unveiled his plan for Afghanistan after seven months of deliberation Monday evening, announcing tweaks around the edges of the current strategy instead of a different approach,” read the lead sentence of Breitbart’s wrap on the speech.
Couldn’t happen to a more narcissistic excuse for a human being than Trump.
