The mainstream media has become so pathetic, we’re almost used to their low standards.
Once-great publications are now nothing more than fake news peddlers; most Americans have zero respect for the media. On top of that, they do very little to fix their tarnished reputation.
But sometimes fake news is so ridiculous, it stops us in our tracks. News outlets are so desperate to hurt the President, they’ll print anything, and this is especially true of newspapers.
Recently, the Washington Post published a rumor about the President and First Lady. Of course, they had zero evidence to back the claim, but that didn’t stop the rest of the cesspool to spread it as fact.
Then, during a White House press meeting, these same con artists threw the rumor at Sarah Sanders…and it proved to be a big mistake.
Her response not only squashed the rumor, but humiliated the entire fake news industry.
From The Daily Caller:
“White House press secretary Sarah Sanders slammed the Washington Post for spreading rumors about Melania Trump’s marriage Monday.
‘Sarah, the story this morning The Washington Post, among many things, reported that there are persistent rumors that Mrs. Trump does not live in this White House,’ a reporter asked.
‘And that she lives with her parents somewhere in the suburbs. What do you make of those rumors?’
‘I make of the fact that just when you think The Washington Post can’t get things any more wrong, they do,’ Sanders stated. ‘That is an outrageous and ridiculous claim.’”
‘The First Lady lives here at the White House. We see her regularly,’ she continued.
‘And I think that’s something that belongs in tabloid gossip, not on the front pages of The Washington Post.’”
Sanders is 100% correct. The Washington Post, once upon a time, would never have ran with such a stupid story; not only is it NOT true, but it’s completely irrelevant.
Much like everything else the fake news pushes, they wanted to tarnish Trump’s image. They know many Americans support the President, and after his historic tax cuts and big victories, even more Americans are joining the Trump train.
So, they invent these rumors to make it seem like Trump’s personal life is in tatters. After the nothingburger of Stormy Daniels, maybe Melania moved out! Trump’s marriage is falling apart. He is a failure! Don’t support him!
Sad, and very hypocritical. Remember, these are the same outlets that defended Bill Clinton after he admitted to having an affair in the White House. Now they are throwing Trump and his family under the bus—over unproven rumors.
But this is American “journalism” in 2018: they don’t care about facts or evidence. Reporting on the truth no longer matters, and all they care about is protecting their agenda.
Even if that means destroying whatever is left of their credibility.
The only question is: why do people still support them?
