Reporters Spread Fake News Claiming Ivanka Kicked a Spanish Chef From a Restaurant
When journalists don't fact-check, fake news spreads faster than chickenpox in a kindergarten with shared toothbrushes. Spoiler: that happened here. With immigration issues fresh in the head cavities of leftists, a couple of Hispanic peoples decided to make up a racist story. Surprise, surprise, reporters bought it.
Former Mexican Ambassador to China Jorge Guajardo claimed on Twitter on Sunday that celebrity chef José Andrés was kicked out of Cafe Milano, the tony Washington, D.C. restaurant, at the request of Trump. Andrés soon tweeted the accusation himself.

Sounds like someone is upset he wasn't invited to the cool kids' party. So took out his camera to show the abuse he suffered. Possibly after wallowing in alcohol and self pity.

The restaurant was quick to say, "Sorry you weren't invited to the party, loser." You can come eat alone like the single-pringle pinhead you are.

Of note, the dinner and after party are different guest lists. Also, Ivanka Trump had no role on determining event attendees. Franco 2/2— Cafe Milano (@Cafe Milano)1517164078.0
Ah, so he was invited to a dinner, yes. That much is true. But apparently there was a second event, with a second guest list, which he wasn't on. It's not the restaurant's fault he wasn't on the list.
The fact reporters had to make up a racist story attests to their lack of Trump racism evidence. Leftists throw around the term "racist" like it's a deflated pigskin. But as we've seen with many a hate crime story or racist accusation, upon further investigation, such claims turn out to be decidedly untrue. Fake news.
The moral to the dramatic food story is that not all news sources are reliable. Even reporters at billion dollar networks like CNN sometimes ice skate over fact-checking. Those with smarts will check all sides of these stories. Facts don't care about people's fetish for virtue signaling (see Pandering Moron Andrew Cuomo Claims He’s an Immigrant. He Was Born in NYC…).
Speaking of "racism" and immigration, here are the real factoids.
