People are Furious After Kayleigh McEnany Dismisses Russia Bounty Story and Says Trump STILL Hasn’t Been Briefed
Excuse us, but this is fcking outrageous. Our troops deserve one hell of a lot better than this.
The NY Times story broke Friday evening. We haven’t heard a single thing from Trump other than “I didn’t know.” Today, Kayleigh McEnany was asked if Trump had a message to Moscow, her answer is more infuriating than perhaps even allowing it to happen:
Question: Does the President have a specific message for Moscow?

Again, this report came out Friday late afternoon, early evening.
Let’s pretend for a moment that Trump didn’t know, something that is becoming less believable by the hour due to the inaction. But if Trump didn’t know, how is it that Trump didn’t call half the intelligence community to the White House Friday evening and demand a full accounting of what they know, what evidence they have, what Moscow has said, and what is the plan going forward? How did they not have a call set-up Monday morning to Moscow?
It is the middle of the day Monday, and Trump has no message to Moscow because – they say – he still hasn’t been briefed!! There is news out there that there are bounties on American heads, and Trump (who had nothing official on his schedule today except lunch, not exaggerating) hasn’t desperately wanted to learn all that’s happened, doesn’t want to know what they’ve done and what we’ll do? British intelligence has confirmed the story!
People are furious!
WHY Hasn't @realDonaldTrump been BRIEFED on THIS!!!???
Was he TOO BUSY GOLFING ALL WEEKEND?
When is HE GOING to BE BRIEFED???
How does @PressSec SPEW this B*llshit and EXPECT us to believe it???

Exactly our thoughts.
Breaking news: it is confirmed that US soldiers and Afghan civilians were killed as a result of Putin’s bounty and Taliban militants were paid off.
There is nothing worse than a commander that makes a deal with the enemy to let his men get killed.

We have heard such reports in various media but don’t know the level of confirmation. But given that Trump has yet to say anything, it appears increasingly likely that he knew, and doesn’t know what to do now.
British intelligence confirmed this

Yes, but the British aren’t hiding anything.
It's over, Kayleigh.

We have written that it is 50-50.
So, Is this not a priority for this administration and for the President? Is this not a matter of national security? If you aren't briefed it didn't happen, if you don't test cases go down. If you have NPD… you have difficulty with object permanence… Not fit to serve!!!!

How do they deny something he hasn't been briefed on?

They are twisted up in their own excuses now.
She picks odd excuses. "No, he does not have a specific message for Moscow because he's been off golfing and he has other things to think about, like preserving Confederate statues."

Because there’s no excusing this.
They don’t see the walls closing in on them. To them, this is just another embarrassing scandal.
