Who do you believe?

CNN hasn’t verified the story, but says Trump has a history of disparaging military people. Read story here. He did it again today. Watch video here.

People who believe “deep state” conspiracy theories, Covid-19 is a “hoax,” and Democrats will “destroy civilization” won’t give the story credence. But lots of people will listen to “Captain Sully.” The polls will soon tell us whether he burned one bridge too many.

Meanwhile, Trump is trying to game the election, and surely will challenge the results if he loses. But who will take seriously the complaints of someone who even cheats at golf?
