The Media’s Perpetual ‘Trump Did It’ Hoax Machine

Written by Jeff Davidson on July 1, 2022

“Donald Trump lunged for the steering wheel!”

If you’ve ever sat in the back of limousine, you know that such a maneuver is all but impossible. That doesn’t stop the libstream press from touting its latest hoax. While media bias is obvious to those on the right, those on the left dwell in a sea of misinformation and exaggeration related to the activities of Donald Trump.

For clarity(!), Trump did not start a war in the Middle East with Iran. The Chicken Little “reporters” and “journalists” on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC, and the usual suspects in the newspaper business squealed on and on about the imminent possibility

Damaged Spleens

Trump did not start World War III with North Korea, although pundit after pundit on television, and innumerable journalists, at what used to be prestigious newspapers such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, vented their spleens to convince you that war was right around the corner.

Now widely known, except among tinfoil hat leftists, Donald Trump didn’t collude with Russia to get elected. Robert Mueller and his Democratic operatives, eager to bring down Trump by any means possible, spent multi-millions of dollars seeking anything that would make their case.

Although after a couple of months they knew they had nothing, they persisted for another two years, blatantly intimidating and harassing Trump appointees, sometimes for hours on end, over many weeks and months, specifically to inflict damage on Trump and his administration.

A Recession on the Horizon

Donald Trump did not cause a recession. The so-called mainstream media tried to propagate this years back. Phony prognosticators claimed that the U.S. might be, could be, possibly might be…dipping into recession. Newspapers ran with this “shred of a feature” repeatedly. The usual gang of talk show hosts babbled on and on about the topic. Indeed, they were hoping for one and now, with Biden, they’ll likely get their wish.

Donald Trump did not appoint judges who had to pass ideological, abortion litmus tests, as all recent Democrat presidents have done. Trump’s major criteria, and it’s the best that our nation has known, was that the individuals selected interpret the U.S. Constitution as written: nothing more, nothing less.

Trump did not exhibit anti-Semitism. The charge is ridiculous on its face. His daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism to marry his son-in-law Jared. His three grandchildren from his daughter are all Jewish. He has been more supportive of Israel than any other president in the last 50 years. Donald Trump has many close Jewish friends, who’ve known him for decades. If he makes remarks here and there about the shrewdness of Jewish businessmen, it is not anti-Semitism. Sorry folks, the label simply won’t stick.

Trump did not praise white nationalists and supremacists during the controversy in Charlottesville, Virginia. He condemned them. The mainstream media and fake news websites selectively edited the video of him addressing the issue, and some still do.

Visit a conservative site or visit Youtube directly. Watch the entire video of Trump’s response to the Charlottesville incident. You’ll discover that when he said, “There were good people on both sides,” he was not referring to the white supremacists. Anyone who can see and hear with their own two ears will figure this out in seconds. To this day, however, the mainstream media, Joe Biden, and a host of others continue to perpetuate the lie.

A Fish Tale

A small event illustrates a major point: In November 2017, the Japanese Prime Minister and President Trump were ceremoniously feeding koi fish. Contrary to the portrayal in the media, the President did not dump all of his fish food into the pond arbitrarily, and in haste. He followed the Japanese Prime Minister’s lead.

NBC deleted that part of the video, then aired a doctored video to knowingly mislead you. ABC NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and many other TV networks who should know better, and a variety of other media sources continue to this day to propagate the lie.

If you’re on the Left, you’re certain that everything above is not true. And yet, it is true. Will you ever find your way off of the Democratic plantation? Can you burst the liberal media bubble in which you find yourself permanently ensconced? If you’ve read this far, you have a fighting chance.
