WTF? Newsweek’s Latest ‘Smear’ On President Trump Is BEYOND Lame

Written by Wes Walker on September 19, 2019

And this is why we call them NewsWeak.

How desperate is the leftist ‘resistance’ to find something — anything — to smear the president with?

They make stories out of the most inane and, in many cases, ridiculous claims.

The same press that somehow slept through 8 years of Obama and somehow couldn’t find a SINGLE newsworthy screw-up in his ‘scandal-free’ government — despite the CIA hacking Congressional computers, or the IRS selectively targeting political rivals, or Ben Rhodes bragging that he could create a media Echo Chamber to make the Iran deal acceptable to their pallate. No word about Obama deep-sixing Project Cassandra or ignoring an Iranian bomb plot to the great detriment of the safety and well-being of Americans at home?

Why worry about any of that when NewsWeak can throw up a juicy story about…

*checks notes*

…pancakes?

Seriously, guys? What, the ‘second scoop of ice cream’ story wasn’t inane enough? Alright. Here we go.

Oh, and he was visiting someone their own article describes as a ‘distant’ cousin and forgot that his distant Scottish relative’s husband had passed. That’s newsworthy, right?

Oh, but it gets worse. He’s a pancake thief!

Oh, the humanity!

Let’s really get to the bottom of this story, shall we?

The 79-year-old spoke in glowing terms about Trump’s late mother—Mary Anne MacLeod, who died in 2000—and his older sister—Maryanne Trump Barry, 82—saying they were both generous people who made many contributions to the Isle of Lewis, an island located in Scotland’s far northern Outer Hebrides archipelago.

Mackay told Scottish newspaper The National: “I don’t like the man at all, he’s so unlike his mother and father.” She recalled that Mary Anne and Fred Trump were “lovely parents, I don’t know what went wrong with him. My mum and dad were second cousins. Every time they were over here they came to ours for dinner.”

Mackay recalled one morning when the future president committed two social faux pas in quick succession. “He was here one morning I was busy making pancakes and he had forgotten my husband had died,” she said. “He put a few pancakes in [his] pocket and never said ‘cheerio’ or anything.”

Is she actually claiming the well-known germophobe stuck food in his pocket?

Seems a little… what’s the word? Implausible.

Does the article say anything about what could possibly be driving this woman’s animosity toward President Trump?

A distant cousin of the president, Alice Mackay—related to Trump through his mother’s family, the McLeods—said the commander-in-chief is an unpleasant man who has never used any of his wealth to help his mother’s local community.

Oh look, it does! She assumes that her community has some kind of right to lay claim to wealth it has never earned simply because Trump’s mom was from there, and she had supported her local community.

Maybe that jaded sense of entitlement is reason enough NOT to give anything that that community.

It really isn’t charity unless it’s freely given. News flash — that isn’t Trump’s ‘local community’. It was his MOM that lived there.
