More Fake News From ABC 'This Week' Fill in Shorty, Martha Raddatz: 'The Military Standing Behind Him Were Probably Cringing' While Standing Behind The President, Not Cringing (MJ)

Good grief.

Apparently the comment made by President Trump..'the calm before the storm...' really got the fake news talking heads on the ABC set in a tizzy.

Embarrassing.



RADDATZ: ABC's Cecilia Vega asking President Trump about that cryptic comment this weekend. That wink as well. The powerhouse "Roundtable" joins me now. ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd; Jeanne Cummings, The Wall Street Journal's deputy bureau chief; NPR White House reporter Geoff Bennett; and Susan Glasser, Politico's chief international affairs columnist.

Welcome to all of you. So much to talk about this week. And I want to start with those comments. Susan, what did you make of that? I don't think anybody expected that.

SUSAN GLASSER, CHIEF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS COLUMNIST, POLITICO: No, nobody expected that. We're still waiting to find out. The storm, is it the next hurricane in the wave of Atlantic hurricanes that seems to be extending on forever? Is it some international crisis? Is it North Korea? Is it a follow-up to the "fire and fury" comment of President Trump back in August?

We don't know, but I think we all feel like maybe it's just this week's cliffhanger in the episode of the Trump show.

RADDATZ: And, Geoff, his aides did not know about that. And, you know, the military standing behind him were probably cringing.

These people are dumb and they don't really add much in the way of analysis; they merely state what they think happened, which conveniently disparages their enemies.

Dowd-like in its wish casting.
