“He Fights” – President Trump Calls Out Fake News Reporting of Washington Post and Dave Weigel…

In an effort to ridicule President Trump, Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel tweeted a fake news picture from last night’s MAGA rally in Pensacola Florida; obviously attempting to frame a narrative that the rally was poorly attended.

Except the picture was entirely FAKE NEWS, and President Trump just called Dave Weigel out on Twitter:

…Along with actual pictures from the rally:

 

….Which forced WaPo reporter Dave Weigel to retract and apologize:

 

One of the many reasons people support President Trump is because “He Fights” back.

    Here’s an idea, Dave and other swamp scum ‘reporters’. How about you actually WATCH the event you’re supposedly commenting on prior to tweeting? OR, take a page out of PDJT’s playbook and tweet the truth….

    Either way you might be able to cut down on your meds and you’d sleep better.

      Does Mr. Weigel know that Pinocchio guy at the Washington Post? Mr. Weigel should talk to that Pinocchio guy, I think.

      Thank you for your apology, Mr. Weigel – as a voter and supporter for President Trump, I consider that an apology to me as well and all the rest of us.

      Here is a “what if” – “What if” Mr. Weigel would go on Morning Schmoe and talk about this mistake he made and acknowledge that there are apparently many, many people who love this President. Some of us were in that stadium in Pensacola – some of us were at home, watching that rally in Pensacola.

      Also – “what if” – the regular, nice old-school Democrats across the country would also tell the news media to can it – why not kick out the Clintons and all the Clintonphiles who have only done harm to the country and the Democratic Party.

      Let President Trump get things done, get that debt down, make things happen that help everyone. Not ALL Democrats love the Clintons and that crowd and certainly not ALL Republicans are fond of John McCain, the Bush Family, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and so many others who are pulling their oars against Trump.

        Kind of hard for dead folks [h/t Zero] to tell anyone anything…the ‘nice’ (there were never any — they were Democrats, and the Democrat Party has NEVER stood for ‘nice’) old-school (gummint-run schools, by the way) Democrats are non-existent. 1) They would have banded together to do something about the outrageous commie takeover of their sugar-daddy party; 2) they would have all left the D’s by now if they were truly ‘nice’.

            I guess this morning while reading these comments, I am finally convinced that social media, blogs, and twitter in particular are good for the soul of this country. Back when we only had the alphabet news in the morning and night, they pulled all sorts of stuff over on the American people. Today, even some news stories are driven by what has already been written on the internet. Open is the word of the day.

    I can’t help but wonder if Weigel’s tweet was 100% a stunt for traffic to sell his stupid book. If not, he’s trying to turn it into that, and it seems like he’s getting help from the likes of Stelter (ewwww)

    Folks what excites me the most is there was a point when we all lamented the communication of our President’s team. I can honestly say that they are a well oiled machine. We are absolutely on the attack and taking the fight to the Fake News. For everyday Americans that may not follow politics the way we do but follow this moron our our beloved President just saw another example of how our press is in a War with our President but more importantly our President is opening up a complete can of whip ass on them.

    The previous thread about the new division in the FBI gives me absolute goosebumps. To think these traitors in Congress maybe in the roundup is beyond any type of Christmas gift 🎁 one could give me. This is starting to get really fun. Our President and his communication team took a lot of fire 🔥 but the are dropping MOABs at record pace!

    The Washington Post papers and all its employees are nothing more than a piece of trash.and every time I see them on my property, they will all end up in the garbage bin to be collected and disposed in a landfill on the next day. Just stay in Washington DC and please do not spread your garbage newspaper to contaminate the rest of our beautiful country.

    I’m grateful there are alternatives to MSM.

    FTA – … far too many national reporters are not only wet behind the ears, but they’ve reached what used to be the big leagues of journalism without proper seasoning in the minors. The scrubs are where you start out, writing the weather stories, covering the cop shop and local town meetings. then, if you’re any good and don’t screw up too often, you catch the eye of a top scout and graduate to Triple A ball, where you hope to catch the eye of your organization’s manager or GM and get your ticket to the Show.

    What you weren’t supposed to be was an already politicized partisan graduate of the Ivy League with a grudge against “injustice” and a sense of entitlement…

    Reading the grilling they’re taking on Twitter over on the Gateway Pundit…..confused because they thought he was entering on the bottom right hand corner of the picture.

    Sure…..the President of the United States always just randomly walks into a crowded arena, not surrounded by SS or anybody and walks directly through the crowd.

    They really are stupid. Truly stupid.

    Everyone needs to know who Weigel is to know that Trump is doing yeoman’s work taking him out on twitter. Weigel is one of the original JournOlisters, a group of 150+ leftwing media on a google group deciding how the narrative of the day was going to play out. They worked in 2008 to utterly destroy Sarah Palin and prop up Obama. They all are the enemy of the good that is America.

    Judge Jeanine , in her opening statement last night on the Obama FBI’s and DOJ’s malfeasances stated that nothing will change in those agencies until some folks are made examples of, and Judge Pirro listed a few who should be made examples of , James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew Weisman, Andrew McCabe etc.
    The same principal should be applied to the news media, otherwise, for guys like Dave Weigel it’s just a “So what! No big deal moment” and the very next instant an opportunity to do the same thing arrives, they’ll be all over it.

    I’m sorry folks, but I look at Weigel’s “apology” differently. I do NOT think it was an apology at all… he used it to attempt to call out President Trump. Read it again for yourselves. Yes, he used the word “apologize”, but it was tongue in cheek. He also once again in the “apology” claimed it wasn’t taken hours earlier, but that President Trump was actually entering the venue at the precise time the photo was taken… in other words, he called President Trump a liar. (without using the word “liar” in his tweet)

    Was Weigel also confused by the fact that only one light was on in the whole building in the photo he used?

    This very same tactic was used on Inauguration Day–look at the photo supposedly showing very poor attendance, and you will see people looking in all kinds of directions–because POTUS was NOT there yet. Fake News!!!

    Obviously he is not a member of the the Society of Professional Journalists, which has a Code of Ethics– something he should practice. In fact, President Trump should make all of the White House press pool live by this standard or terminate their White House press passes.

    http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp

    Here are some highlights:
    Members of the Society of Professional Journalists believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. Ethical journalism strives to ensure the free exchange of information that is accurate, fair and thorough. An ethical journalist acts with integrity.
    Seek Truth and Report It
    Ethical journalism should be accurate and fair. Journalists should be honest and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.
    Journalists should:
    – Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Use original sources whenever possible.
    – Never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information.
    – Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived. Disclose unavoidable conflicts.
    – Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and avoid political and other outside activities that may compromise integrity or impartiality, or may damage credibility.
    – Be wary of sources offering information for favors or money; do not pay for access to news. Identify content provided by outside sources, whether paid or not.
    – Deny favored treatment to advertisers, donors or any other special interests, and resist internal and external pressure to influence coverage.
    – Expose unethical conduct in journalism, including within their organizations.
    – Abide by the same high standards they expect of others.
