Another presidential speech, another opportunity to undercut the media’s credibility with more bullshit!
On Monday, the president used his first speech to military service members to make one hell of a claim: that the media was intentionally covering up reports of terrorist attacks.
Speaking at MacDill AirForce Base in Tampa, Florida, Drumpf listed off a series of attacks carried out by “radical Islamic terrorists” — like September 11, and the recent attacks in Orlando and San Bernardino.
But the predatory POTUS sunk to a new low when he told a group of senior commanders that there were “many” cases of attacks that weren’t being reported by the media at all, saying:
“You’ve seen what happened in Paris, and Nice. All over Europe, it’s happening. It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it.”
Wait, so is he implying the Bowling Green Massacre ACTUALLY happened!?
Trump provided no evidence to back up his claims, but suggested the media organizations had a hidden agenda motive to bury coverage of attacks, adding:
“They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
After the speech, Trump’s talking wad of gum Sean Spicer told reporters there are “several instances” of the media’s lack of coverage, but failed to provide examples.
Though he did promise:
“We’ll provide a list later.”
LOL, thanks, Sean! We can’t wait for Trump’s crack team to accumulate all that alternative data and get back to us!
