George W. Bush's Former Spokesman Shaded Trump For His "Mission Accomplished" Tweet On Syria

Writing on Twitter, Fleischer insisted it had been the idea of the crew on the Lincoln to put up the banner to celebrate ending their longest-ever deployment at sea.

"It was the crew’s message from start to finish," he wrote.
