Well it's happened; the gophers of anonymity have finally come back out of their holes. After a well-earned rest from their Russian collusion revelations, the little guys/girls are back at it again. It seems that while in France in 2018, President Trump made disparaging remarks about our nation's war dead, i.e., "stupid" and "losers." To impress upon us the credibility of the accusation, the writer emphasizes that it comes from four anonymous individuals that's called "safety in numbers." Food for thought: a question should be, why now? The event in question happened two years ago. Could it be that at the time these little gophers were too busy inventing their collusion revelations that this one would've been a distraction? An easier explanation is that it's an election year let the campaign smears begin! Some think at times that a person will speak honestly if they are allowed to speak anonymously, or at other times think anonymity is used in order to say harmful (many times untruthful) things about others without the possibility of being challenged. However you look at it, how much weight you give to the revelation is usually situational whether or not it supports your belief system. After the adventures of the 3+ past years, I can't give much credence to anonymous leakers and until one of these gophers pops up and identifies himself/herself, I'll give the President "the benefit of the doubt.''
