NBC News Falsely Claims Trump Praised Robert E. Lee at Rally
Just about anyone can tell you the media is a craptastic cesspool full of fake newsery. I'd sooner trust Harvey Weinstein to chaperone my daughter's prom than take the media at their word. You might think I'm being a tad too harsh on the newsmen.
See if you still think that after you take a look at this NBC News "screw-up."
WATCH: President Trump says "Robert E. Lee was a great general" during Ohio rally, calling the Confederate leader "… https://t.co/MxlQzlD4ES— NBC News (@NBC News)1539389317.0
Well, judging from that video, it appears as though the Donald is a yuge fan of Bob E. Lee. I can hear the lefties after watching that. "Racism confirmed. Case closed. End of story." There's just one teeny little problem. That's not the point Trumpy was making at all. In fact, a bunch of people called NBC News out on their fake newsery and they were forced to issue a correction.
Here's the video in its full context:
CORRECTION: An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as "incredible" at a rally in Ohio… https://t.co/u06mdg2tEM— NBC News (@NBC News)1539537790.0
Well, that's a whole different tale than "Bob Lee was the absolute best and none of Lincoln's sucky Generals could ever stand up to him."
Notice how those NBC jagweeds are claiming it was an error on their part. You know, explicitly saying "Trump hearts Lee" in the tweet and conveniently cutting the video right before he says otherwise. "It was an honest mistake!" Sure...
This is some real deal fake newsery, right before our very eyes. The left tells us we're a bunch of whacky tin-hatters for suggesting there are speakers of untruths in the media, yet here they are. In the lying flesh.
Luckily, there are good people in the Twittersphere who caught this incidence of deceptive douchebaggery before it became a major leftist talking point. There's an important lesson in all of this: don't take the media's ramblings as truth by default. Otherwise, you're bound to get played.
