White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday denied that the Trump administration misled the public when the president said last week that a U.S. aircraft carrier was heading toward the Sea of Japan.

Maybe it was the "deep state", looking to undermine his administration?

One thing for sure: it wasn't the US Navy that screwed up. CNO knows where all those ships are every minute of the day and night. He also knows where they are going. Trying to pin this one on the Pentagon isn't going to work, but it is going to piss off quite a few Naval officers. The Army may get a good laugh out of it though.

Yeah, misplacing a carrier task force is the kind of thing that breaks naval careers. The likelihood that the navy misinformed the White House is about nill. So something else happened. But of course, the White House can't admit, for example, that Trump just pulled the idea out of his back side, like he did with the Obama "wire tapping" thing, which seems quite likely to me.

Ya got that right. A carrier task force isn't like an Uber cab. The Navy doesn't mix this sort of information up. Spicer? That former Easter bunny is so scrambled and defensive that he doesn't know what he is saying from one question to the next. Trump still hasn't grasped that his tweets as President aren't like his lines on Celebrity Apprentice. When he ad libs, the world takes him seriously. Less and less each day, though.

I wonder why they're hanging onto Spicer. Quite frankly, he seems in way over his head.

Still better than leftists. You guys started blaming Bush when he did not even take office.

And that is complete BS. Bush wasn't persecute or disparage initially, everyone took a wait and see attitude. And then when 9/11 hit, the entire nation rallied behind him. It wasn't until his administration lied and connived its way into war in Iraq that he started to get heat from the left.

Stop lying so damn much, it makes you look even stupider than you are.

You are such an angry person. There is no lie. The media hung him out to dry since the day Bush ran for the governor of Texas. Leftists mocked him when he announced his candidacy for president.

:rollseyes: Lies and more lies. I was a registered voter during that election, and I was paying attention. He was not disparaged like you describe, if anything Gore faced more disparagement at the hands of the media than Bush.

Trump was simply throwing red meat to his right-wing constituents when he bragged about his armada on Kim's front door. When in truth it was 300 miles off the coast on N.Korean before Admiral Trump gave the order to reverse rudder and use flank speed and get the hell out of there @ 35.4 Knots before Kim gets mad.

Conservative values must now also include a full retreat in the face of the enemy, while they also claim it was done for tactile reasons.

I told you when Trump started his N.Korean saber rattling it was all BS and bluster, which only served to further confuse our allies.

The Trump administration is a disgrace, but what else is new?

So drudge, are you complaining about Bush being blamed for things, or being mocked? If you would stay on one topic it'd be easier to follow what passes for 'logic' with you.

You must be incredibly tired of being so wrong all the time.

I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

There wasn't a lot of publicity about where our carriers were on the 3rd to 7th of June 1942. :shakeshead:
It is rumored they were somewhere near Midway Island :hooray:
