CNN’s favorite hobby has always been to twist anything that comes out of President Trump’s mouth, especially if it’s something he said three years ago. CNN Host, Jim Acosta, took it upon himself for some promotion in attacking President Trump to play to the left for attention.
The most recent deceptive tweet was a reference to something President Trump had said regarding Charlottesville. “Three years ago today… Trump says there were “very fine people on both sides” in Charlottesville,” Acosta tweeted, including a link to the clip.
Of course the part he left out was President Trump’s condemnation of neo-Nazi’s in the same remarks, within seconds of saying “fine people.” He made it perfectly clear he was not talking about neo-Nazi’s or white nationalists. You can even hear the explanation in the video Acosta had linked, but if you only read his tweet and the comments, you are just being fed the same fake news.
The point of what he was saying is that there were multiple groups during the Charlottesville comment. He was not calling white supremacists “very fine people.” President Trump was pointing out that there were multiple groups. There were neo-Nazi, folks destroying and ripping down statues without rule of law, people who thought mobs could just rip down the statue, and Antifa.
But hey, Jim might not know that repeating the same lie over and over again doesn’t make it true. Even his own colleague, Jake Tapper, had to point out that the whole quote was misinterpreted.
“Elsewhere in those remarks the President did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people,” Tapper said.
People are only listening to the clipped segments put out by CNN, which puts an entirely different light on what President Trump was saying. You can check the transcript yourself and see what he was actually saying, instead of following the narratives pushed by a dishonorable news outlet. The misleading edits of what Acosta tweeted is what makes it a hoax in the first place.
The Dems are out to create as much radical division as possible, pushing the same lies that will never die. It’s quite a shame actually that these people can even call themselves journalists anymore, when they don’t put all of the facts out there. The focus was put on one sentence and then they painted Trump into a corner.
Ironic enough, the remarks in the Trump video also include him talking about how the statue mob would come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. They just did that in Los Angeles when a radical leftist group pulled down a statue of George Washington. Funny how spot on President Trump really was, even though the comment was three years ago.
