It was some Martin Luther King, Jr. three-day weekend for the liberal press.
It really was more like a three-ring circus featuring the Trump derangement syndrome players.
Starting out Friday with the BuzzFeed debacle on the “blockbuster” report that Trump told his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen to lie Congress about his plan to build a hotel in Moscow, Russia.
Now why would the President tell his lawyer — no matter how incompetent he is — to lie about something that was lawful?
The reporting was so shoddy, biased and wrong that Special Counsel Robert Mueller — who never speaks about anything Russian — refuted the report on Friday night.
“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement.
That statement did not stop any of the reporting by left-leaning news organizations from reporting on the alleged story they just prefaced their remarks with, “If the BuzzFeed story is true, then the president …”
Well by Saturday early evening the “news” organizations found a video clip that allowed them to move their TDS to something they were sure was right.
Kentucky teenagers wearing MAGA hats evilly confronted a Native American man in front of the Lincoln Memorial in DC.
The teen, Nick Sandmann, a Covington Catholic High School junior in Kentucky was besmirched and as President Trump said, “smeared” by the media.
Sandmann was vilified on social media as being the face of white privilege triggering such outrageous reactions calling for him to be smacked down and punched, which was the milder reactions.
No “journalist” looked at the longer video that the infamous clip was taken from to back check the story. No his facial expression told the media everything it needed to know. It confirmed all their biases.
These teens were under verbal assault from two groups for over an hour while waiting for their bus. But why play the part of the video that shoots down your great story.
Lastly, is the post I made Monday on ex-Democratic National Committee chief Donna Brazile’s tweet on Nancy Pelosi soon to become president.
How is this appropriate? To state that the president and vice president may “shortly” be out of office, so Pelosi becomes president. This does not mean impeachment by any stretch. Mike Pence is never mentioned in that regard. No this means something far more sinister.
Well it certainly was not a good weekend for the Trump derangement syndrome media and its cohorts. A three-ring circus working without a net.
