Lisa Boothe on Trump's Iraq Visit: He 'Just Can't Win - Ever - With the Media'
Lisa Boothe said Thursday on "Outnumbered" that no matter what, the majority of the media will not approve of President Trump's actions.
Specifically, Boothe was referring to the widespread criticism of Trump's Wednesday visit with troops at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, his first visit to a war zone since taking office.
She said Trump was prematurely criticized for not taking the trip on Christmas, and then when he did make the trip, he was panned over his speech to soldiers.
"President Trump just can't win, ever, with the media," she said.
Julie Banderas said she had a particular problem with Trump's statement that the United States "is no longer the suckers, folks."
She said that she'd never consider the U.S. as "suckers," and that Trump's comments were disrespectful to servicemen and women.
"What does that say to the families that have lost loved ones in wars prior?" she asked.
Kennedy argued that Trump's comments speak to the bravery of soldiers.
"Sometimes, they put themselves in harm's way for incursions and wars that don't that don't make sense," she said.
The president reportedly said that he has "no plans at all" to remove U.S. troops from Iraq, but is planning to remove U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan.
"I agree with the president that the United States shouldn't be footing the bill for all of this stuff, and the rest of the world has no problem relying on us so they can bolster their social programs," Kennedy added. "That is what makes us suckers."
