Putting his life at risk by traveling to a war zone, President Trump traveled secretly to Afghanistan to spend Thanksgiving with our troops on the ground, he even served them dinner. It was something special but ABC and NBC refused to check their petty politics at the door. In addition to reporting on his holiday visit, those networks decided to serve up the attacks of former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, who chose to resign recently after disagreeing with the President.

The President's show of support comes as the recently fired Navy secretary had scathing words for the commander-in-chief,” fill-in anchor and chief national affairs correspondent Tom Llamas boasted at the top of ABC’s World News Tonight.

After noting the President was working on drawing down the U.S. presence in Afghanistan, senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega moved on to talking about how, “this mission comes amid controversy at the Pentagon, after the President intervened on behalf of a Navy SEAL at the center of a war crimes case.”

Vega went on to gush about Spencer’s attack against the President in The Washington Post.
