President Trump spent his Thanksgiving Day thanking our U.S. troops in Afghanistan during an unannounced visit at Bagram Air Field.
Air Force One touched down in Afghanistan at 11:03 AM EST after a 13 hour overnight trip from JBA. Somehow, President Trump snuck out of Mar a Lago and flew out of an undisclosed airport in Florida on an off-the-record plane.
President Trump made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan to visit our troops
No photo ops
Just there to support our brave men and women in uniform
I’m thankful for our troops today and I’m thankful for a president who is too

Jessica Kwong, a U.C. Berkeley grad and Newsweek reporter, whose entire Twitter feed is filled with negative and hate-filled rants against President Trump or members of his administration, tweeted an article she wrote for the formerly respected Newsweek publication. The headline for Jessica’s article read: How Is Trump Spending His Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing, and More. Was the “More” referring to him flying halfway around the world to serve Thanksgiving dinner to our troops? And if it was, why didn’t Newsweek say so in their title?
Donald Trump Jr. called Newsweek out for their fake news story, showing their tweet side-by-side with photos of his father with our troops in Afghanistan. Above the images, it read: “FAKE NEWS VS. REALITY.”
President Trump retweeted his son, Don Jr.’s tweet, and added the perfect comeback, slamming Newsweek for their dwindling audience, saying, “I thought Newsweek was out of business?”

After she was humiliated for making up the news in a disgusting attempt to make our Commander-in-Chief who was serving Thanksgiving dinner to our troops look bad, Kwong deleted her tweet. She never apologized for the error, but instead, made excuses for the fake news story, saying it was an “honest mistake.”

Sorry, Jessica, there was nothing “honest’ about the hit job you tried to do on an innocent man who is regularly and unjustly attacked by our fake news media every day.
Jessica was fired by that anti-Trump rag, Newsweek, for her disgusting hit piece on Trump that was based on bad intel and driven by emotion.
According to the Washington Examiner– “Newsweek investigated the failures that led to the publication of the inaccurate report that President Trump spent Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing rather than visiting troops in Afghanistan,” a Newsweek representative told the Washington Examiner. “The story has been corrected, and the journalist responsible has been terminated. We will continue to review our processes and, if required, take further action.”
Hours after the president’s trip was announced, Newsweek edited Kwong’s story and added a note at the bottom of it. The beginning of the story now focuses on the president’s trip and his speech to the troops, while the new headline reads, “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing — and surprising U.S. troops in Afghanistan.”
In her bio, Kwong talks about her past work, including a story about an illegal alien that she wrote, bragging that it garnered so much attention, that the far-left Democrat dinosaur, Senator Diane Feinstein blocked his deportation
As a Hearst Fellow, I covered city hall for The San Francisco Chronicle and followed an undocumented student who faced deportation through his calls from a detention center. My stories case garnered national attention on social media, led Senator Dianne Feinstein to block his deportation and won first place in the East Bay Press Club Excellence in Print Journalism Awards in 2010. I spent the other half of my Hearst Fellowship at the San Antonio-Express News covering crime, courts and the Occupy San Antonio movement.
The far-left activist/journalist’s Twitter feed is filled with anti-Trump rhetoric and articles that look like they were written by the head of a radical activist group, instead of an objective journalist.
In her most recent tweet before she was caught writing the fake news article about Trump spending his day tweeting and golfing on his Florida course, Kwong advocates for the government to abolish ICE.
People call to #AbolishICE after report that the government agency created a fake university to lure and deport foreign students @UNITEDWEDREAM @stealthygeek @peterdaou @AbdulElSayed @taradublinrocks @RyanAFournier @TrumpStudents https://t.co/3BbYFa2RTC

Here, Kwong writes about an imaginary event that has not yet even taken place. Kwong writes about the anti-Trump protest, that hasn’t even taken place yet, to push a false narrative that Trump will face a resistance movement. The “Trump baby” balloon that Kwong’s story centers around, hasn’t been as popular in the U.S. as the media and Democrat Party had hoped. So far, the balloon has not been allowed to fly near Trump’s appearances and has remained grounded on the outskirts of his rallies, or appearances at major events, like the LSU vs. AL game earlier in the month. Newsweek was forced to use a photo of the “Baby Trump” balloon flying in London to support Kwong’s article.

Without any confirmation about Trump’s plans for Thanksgiving Day, CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller snarkily reported that President Trump by his “count” was making his “61st visit” to Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach. Knoller also reported that Trump’s visit to his golf course “brings the number of days as Pres he’s been to a golf club to 224.”
Conservative comedian Mark Dice slammed Knoller, explaining to him that President Trump was not golfing on one of his own courses, but was instead, halfway around the world serving Thanksgiving dinner to our troops stationed in Afghanistan.”
No, Mr. CBS White House Correspondent. The President was half way around the world serving Thanksgiving dinner to our troops stationed in Afghanistan. https://t.co/1GY0FJHkci

Will CBS follow Newsweek’s lead and fire the White House reporter for his fake news story?
