CNN IS MALICIOUSLY AND INTENTIONALLY LYING TO AMERICA (AGAIN)
CNN published a story at 2:51 PM ET Monday falsely claiming that President “Trump has allowed several days to pass without addressing the nation or making any formal appeals for unity.”
“What Trump has done publicly — tweet extensively about his grievances with Democratic state and local leaders and mention the protests in the middle of a previously scheduled event — has at best gone unnoticed and at worst fanned the flames of outrage into a second week,” CNN’s fake news report continued.
This is an impressive five lies in just two sentences. Here are the facts:
Less than 48 hours before CNN’s lies were published, President Trump addressed the nation in person, on stage, on live television regarding the killing of George Floyd, the left-wing rioters, and the need for unity.
On Saturday, President Trump specifically said, “We must all work together as a society to expand opportunity and to create a future of greater dignity and promise for all of our people. We must forge a partnership with community leaders, local law enforcement, and the faith community to restore hope. … When Americans are united, there is nothing we cannot do.”
The President’s remarks about the tragedy and the riots did not come “in the middle” of his speech. It was the very first topic he spoke about at length – roughly 900 words.
When CNN says the President’s remarks went “unnoticed,” what CNN means is that CNN refused to air the President’s address to the nation in which he said, “we will stand with the family of George Floyd,” expressed support for the peaceful protesters, condemned the violent rioters, and urged the country to embrace unity.
CNN offered no evidence to support their false allegation that the President’s remarks “fanned the flames of outrage” because it has no evidence. CNN cannot point to a single word in the President’s Saturday remarks to support its false claim.
Instead, CNN is dishonestly pretending President Trump’s remarks don’t exist. CNN is maliciously and intentionally lying to America once again.
