Time Columnist Fabricates Viral Trump Quote, Media and Politicians Spread Fake News….

Ian Bremmer is a professor at New York University; a columnist with Time Magazine and has 428,000 Twitter followers. Earlier today he fabricated a Trump quote out of thin air, and thousands of followers and politicians instantly shared it:

Professor Bremmer was challenged on the quote he attributed to President Trump during his state visit to Japan. Instead of admitting he made the entire thing up, Bremmer deletes the quote and offers no apology.

To be clear, this was entirely made up. President Trump said nothing of the sort. The claim is completely fabricated and false. Yet it was shared by thousands of people before the professor and columnist decided to delete it. This is the current state of credibility within the fake news media.

      Relax, Trump can easily boomerang this to his favor. Trump can point out that while it was a fake quote, KJU would probably make a better president than Biden.

      me either…but two things about this.

      1. Doesn’t the POTUS have access to US libel laws to defend against this crap.
      2. When POTUS corrects I now think he should call Sleepy Joe > Swampy Joe.

      If Joe objects I would just get POTUS to ask a couple of questions..
      why is your deadbeat son getting 50 K$ /mth rom Ukrainians ? What’s the deal ?
      why did Ukraine sack the guy who was investigating him before you loaned them 1 B$.
      P.S. askin’ for a friend Swampy .also
      Why did you sanction spying on my campaign to help HRC win in 2016 ?

    I’m sure that Trump anticipated crap like this when he sent out his tweet about KJU earlier. He was probably using psychology on KJU or Biden & the Dems (or both) for some specific reason. Either way, it worked. His enemies are continuing to expose themselves.

        Agree. Bud, until consequences follow. the Beltway will continue to destabilise our domestic and foreign relations.

        That is what Resist has always been about: a collective who, exempt from consequences, denies our right as citizens to control our government. They deny basic needs: borders, control of immigration, privacy and voter ID.
        To justify their attacks and ostracizing of outsiders, (including POTUS) the unbelievably arrogant DoJ/Bureau, with a corrupted Congress ,foment a Russia lie, smear kavenaugh as a serial rapist, and tolerate two + years of prosecutorial intimidation and entrapment.

        What is more important, our national security or to preserve institutional power that is used to protect the prestige of a generational caste of arrogant crooks?

      He’s a PoliSci major who established his own company and hired Carter Page in the late 1990s. His bio says he appears regularly on CNN, CNBC, NPR, Fox News, Bloomberg, BBC, Charlie Rose And Bill Maher. 5 years ago I might have asked what didn’t fit in that list. With the boys in charge at FNC, I can’t say I’m surprised. He must show up on Shep or Cavuto—I don’t watch those left-leaning showboats.
      As a member of the Fake News, he can hang with all those libs. He likely is one of those who is introduced as a “conservative” on those stations/shows. Sort of like Comey is touted as a Republican.
      He’s published some non-fiction books. Guess tweeting is his foray into fiction!!

    This could be their newest coordinated attack tactic.

    For a while the Disinformation networks were bringing some mentally unstable person on TV to claim Trump did something bad.

    Maybe this will be the new organized attack.

    Every week, some Pravda activist will invent something about Trump and tweet around.

    They are running out of ways to attack Trump, so it will get more and more ridiculous.

      I know “just doing their jobs” isn’t a defense. But we really need to get to the top of that ladder to get the key conspirators convicted of sedition and their weapons (their media ownership) removed.

      Soros has US citizenship and to the best of my knowledge has not renounced his citizenship. This does make him eligible for Treason if the conditions of such a charge are adequately met. With all the layers which pass between Soros and the people who faithfully use and accept the money he provides to target Trump, it becomes more difficult to prove such charges… well unless you are able to use the NSA database to extract the evidence.

      “he’s only a professor”—thus the problem with education today. Too many “educators” are not interested in educating but in indoctrinating. I have seen too many kids who have been “educated” in civics, government, sociology, economics, and political science. The problem is that they are being taught Communist and Socialist policies and ideologies. It used to be that only liberal universities brought the Communist and Socialist ideologies to the classroom. In the past 15 years, this indoctrination has spread to the high schools and (thanks to Common Core) to middle schools. Sad but true. Makes me ashamed to have been an educator but proud to say I was never nor will I ever be an indoctrination in the classroom. Ironically, these same people are the ones who screamed about anything Christian being used in the classroom.

I’m not paying $70K so their professors can lie to them all to further their own political agenda. I KNOW they have an ethics policy that would certainly not allow for Bremmer’s lie, but they haven’t done anything. I asked why he still had a job. Let’s see if they reply. I doubt it.
