Source: McMaster Fails to Brief Trump Before ĎThatís Too Badí Error
breitbart ^ | 8/20/2017 | matthew boyle

Posted on 08/21/2017 5:09:17 AM PDT by RummyChick

A source with direct knowledge of these matters tells Breitbart News that the senior staff at the White House, including National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, did not brief President Donald Trump on the collision the Navy destroyer USS John McCain had with an oil tanker near Singapore before he originally seemingly dismissed the incident saying, “that’s too bad.” Trump later, after receiving more information on it, tweeted that he hopes for the best for the lost sailors. The collision left 10 sailors missing and another five injured.

“That’s too bad,” Trump said when responding to shouted press questions about the collision of the USS John McCain with an oil tanker, per a White House pool report earlier in the evening.

Many took the comment to be disrespectful and something that critics would not let previous presidents get away with.

yeah, Bannon probably hasn't started his new job yet and knows nothing about this article

Breibart has become like a gossip magazine.

When Trump said, “That’s too bad”, maybe he thought it was the brain-damaged actual John McCain, and he said it in the Seinfeld-esque, “That’s a shame.”

Ahh...so McMaster DID brief President Trump before Trump’s “that’s too bad” statement?

Or is the Breitbart article accurate and you’re trying to say something else?

This is insanity. The President gives a quick expression of remorse to a shouted out question and, once again, It’s not “good enough” for the howling wolf pack. Trump should stop communicating through the media entirely. Have a weekly “fireside chat” podcast from the White House that will go directly to the people and starve the media entirely.

You need to pay attention to the subtle way this is handled..it shows how Bannon is going to play this.

Read it carefully

Not Trump’s fault

Mcmaster’s fault.

He is going to gun for Mcmaster , Jared, Ivanka, Gary Cohn and Dina Powell.

Maybe Kelly

There was just an accident at sea.

That’s too bad.

It can mean in my generation, “I’m sorry to hear that.”

I’m in the same generation as the president.

Why would McMaster be the one to advise the president? This seems like a matter for the U.S. Secretary of Defense to deal with.

Breitbart AM Radio was just talking about this.
All of the above mentioned are DEMOCRATS! Are are f-—ing up POTUS’s agenda he campaigned on.

I have no doubt this is what Bannon was referring to, and I hope he declares war on these two faced scumbags.

I’m sure Trump hurt more feelings on the Left over this response, because anything military holds a special place in their crispy little hearts.

You have a valid question.

Does he have to go through Kelly or Mcmaster in the new dynamic? Don’t know. Shouldn’t have to.

I did read the article. Sorry, I was reacting to a snarky comment stating that Breitbart was becoming like a “gossip magazine” and, of course, it’s anything but. I adore a Breitbart and don’t like to see it trashed — even mildly.

Did Breitbart Radio mentioned Jared and Ivanka.

Hit pieces have been coming out on them this weekend.

Noticed one way Bannon may do this. Use Daily Mail as the resource on Breitbart. Kind of takes it off his back.

NYT has a nasty one up about Ivanka crying on Daddy’s desk saying she won’t be able to do it anymore now that Kelly is there. From Bannon allies.
