Trump told McCabe to ask his wife how it felt to be a loser: report
The Hill ^ | 1/29/18 | Jacqueline Thomsen

President Trump reportedly told then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that he should ask his wife, who had lost a bid for political office in Virginia, how it felt to be a loser, NBC News reported Monday.

Trump made the remarks in a phone call to McCabe the day he fired FBI Director James Comey that was placed to demand why Comey was allowed to fly on a FBI plane from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., after being fired.

McCabe told Trump that he hadn’t been asked about the flight but that he would have authorized it if he had.

Trump fell silent before lashing out at McCabe and telling him to ask his wife what it felt like to be a loser, according to NBC. The FBI head replied, “OK, sir,” before Trump ended the call.

McCabe’s wife had run as a Democrat for state office in Virginia but had lost the race.

As part of that political bid, she accepted nearly $500,000 in donations from a super PAC linked to Hillary Clinton and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Trump has repeatedly noted the link between McCabe and Clinton, and has criticized McCabe publicly over Twitter.

He also reportedly asked McCabe who he voted for during an introductory meeting in the Oval Office.

The new report comes the same day it was reported that McCabe was stepping down as deputy director of the FBI amid attacks by Trump and Republicans.

So, the headline claims that Mr. Trump made the remark. Only in the story do you get the "claim."

This is an accusation--not an established fact.

McCabe is a far left loon, so is his wife, so I guess losers tend to marry other losers

Trump probably didn’t say this....most likely McCabe is the source and is one of the parting shot at the president and media is all too happy to report it

The Dems would stand up and shout it down.

The press would blame Trump.

Trump is well aware that McCabe and his wife are Team of corruption. The money is dirty. It was part of the deal McCabe made with Hillary and the deep state. I believe it was compensation.

So Even if Trump did say this...He was totally justified in doing so.

"This is an accusation--not an established fact."

Frankly, I'm hoping it's true. I'll be kind of disappointed if it's not.
