President Donald Trump bragged about delaying the 75th anniversary of D-Day event in Normandy, France in order to give Fox news host Laura Ingraham an interview in which he attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and war veteran Robert Mueller:
Listen to those incredible people back there. These people are so amazing, and what they don’t realize is that, I’m holding them up because of this interview. But that’s because it’s you. By the way, congratulations on your ratings.
Later that night, Ingraham directly contradicted Trump’s statement with a denial:
By the way, some of you may have heard or read that President Trump supposedly held up the entire D-Day ceremony in order to do this interview with me. That is patently false. Fake news.
Our cue to end the interview is when we heard the Macron helicopter approaching, and that is what we did. The interview ended before Macron landed. In fact, President Trump was on the lawn waiting for President Macron who was, himself, just a few minutes late.
