Trump’s in the middle of his trip to Japan. It’s nice to see our two nations getting along so well. Especially when you consider Pearl Harbor and the two gifts we sent them in return. But the good-will trip’s inspired nothing but ill-will from the fake news media.
Take, for instance, this picture making the rounds. It shows Trump feeding some koi fish with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The picture shows Trump saying “screw it” and dumping his fish pellet box unenthusiastically.
This led ever-offended leftist soy enthusiasts to go nuclear over Trump’s “disrespectful act.”
Koi don't have very good impulse control in that regard, and will probably overfeed and become ill as a consequence if no one cleans that up.
Abe is basically watching in polite rage-horror as the epic orange buffoon tries to kill his fish.

Except that’s not at all how it went down:
See, Trump was just following lil’ Shinzo’s lead. No disrespect. No controversy. Just two friends keeping a pond full of koi well-fed.
But wait, the fake newsery doesn’t end there. Trump also delivered a speech to Japanese automakers.
Here’s what leftists got from it:
"Trump tells Japan to build more cars in the US 'instead of shipping them over,' but they already build millions of vehicles in the states" pic.twitter.com/Fpj2IdUPrJ

A quick look-see at the transcript from the speech shows otherwise:

It’s amusing, watching the left try so hard to make Trump look like a culturally-insensitive buffoon. Even more amusing to watch that plan backfire. The only real buffoons in this are leftist mental midgets who ignore the truth to push juicy gossip.
Leftist fake news outlets spread misinformation about koi feedings and urinating Russian hookers. Often with full knowledge the stories are bogus. Yet, it’s still a mystery to the media why nobody in America trusts them.
If leftists are gonna say sayonara to the facts and lie to us, at least try a little harder.
