People Outraged After Trump Is Busted Purposefully Lying To The American People

It doesn’t take much to get the mainstream press all riled up when it comes to President Donald Trump. The commander-in-chief is torn to shreds on a daily basis by outlets and publications that can’t stand him. That’s not hyperbole either, as studies have shown that Trump is covered in a more negative fashion than any president in modern history.

While it’s certainly fair game to criticize the president, the amount of criticism that flows his way is so unfathomably over the top that it’s tough to take at face value. In essence, Trump is portrayed as this nefarious being that sought the presidency solely to enrich himself. He needed help from those pesky Russians to make it happen, and now that he’s in the Oval Office, who knows what he’s capable of.

To pile on even further, his entire administration is portrayed as some kind of gang that can’t shoot straight. Trump and company do nothing right, or so we’re told. Based on that, it’s pretty astounding that he’s achieved as much success as he has in the private sector. If Trump does something, you can bet your bottom dollar that it’s completely wrong. If he says something, it’s a blatant falsehood. If he signs a bill or an executive order, the world is going to end at any second.

You get the drift. The obsessive anti-Trump narrative is nothing short of tiring, and it’s unbelievably transparent to boot. Here’s a recent example of that, and it comes courtesy of both the Washington Post and the New York Times.

As the Times explains, Trump made a simple statement during a recent bill signing event.

“We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through the legislature — than any president, ever,” Trump said. “For a while, Harry Truman had us. And now, I think, we have everybody.”

Trump clarified his statement, and the Times pointed that out in the confines of an article about his comments.

“Turning to Vice President Mike Pence, he added an aside about news media fact-checkers: “I better say ‘think’; otherwise they will give you a Pinocchio. And I don’t like Pinocchios,” the Times reported.

Seems pretty innocuous and inconsequential, but not to the crack teams at WaPo and the NYT. Both papers had hyperbolic headlines at the ready to discuss this grave crime against humanity that Trump had just committed.

“No, President Trump, you haven’t signed more bills than any other president,” blared the WaPo headline.

“Trump Says He Has Signed More Bills Than Any President, Ever. He Hasn’t,” read the NYT headline.

Both publications would then pontificate about how wrong Trump was, and the takeaway for those scoring at home was that POTUS is a liar. This is in spite of the fact that Trump clarified his own remarks in crystal-clear fashion. Is it any wonder why trust in media is at an all-time low?

Perhaps WaPo and NYT can begin holding themselves to the same rigorous standards they hold the president. The amount of poorly sourced stories about Trump and his administration that have been proven to be complete hogwash is downright laughable, and that calls for more Pinocchios than you can shake a stick at.
