From The Hill:
A sign from God, perhaps?
Television anchors laid into Trump on Friday. News networks carried the event in full under the impression he would expand on his past “birther” claims and take questions.
But instead, Trump made only the brief remarks, spending the vast majority of the event honoring Medal of Honor winners and veterans there supporting Trump and lauding his new hotel just a stone’s throw away from the White House.
“We got played again by the Trump campaign, which is what they do,” CNN’s John King said, making clear that he did not mean to disrespect the service members being honored at Trump’s hotel
“He got a live event broadcast for some 20 minutes.”
After Trump left to tour the new hotel, security stood by the doors and and refused to let reporters and some attendees out of the event hall to follow Trump. Once they opened the doors, Trump had left the building.
As everyone waited inside the hall, the backdrop for the event came tumbling down, including American flags, military flags and one marking the sacrifices of servicemembers killed or missing in action.
No one appeared to be hurt in the mishap.
Except the American public.
“Heh, heh, heh. I see my plan is working.”
