Accuracy in Media

Liberals on Twitter went crazy Friday after an aide to Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) tweeted a misleading video of President Donald Trump appearing to ignore a wheelchair-bound child at the White House.

Ansel Herz, the deputy communications director for Jayapal, tweeted out a video–since deleted, which appeared to show the president ignoring a small boy in a wheelchair reaching up to try and touch Trump’s hand or shake it.

The video was from Trump’s remarks on Monday regarding Obamacare.

Herz then issued another tweet.

If you’re disgusted by this, follow my boss: @RepJayapal. People call her “the anti-Trump.” https://t.co/PG6WNZUzrx

Of course, liberals jumped all over this without verifying its accuracy.

Olbermann was joined by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who went on a Twitter rant.

The problem is that Trump did indeed shake the little boy’s hand and what’s shown in the video clip was him waving his Secret Service patch at the president, not reaching up to shake his hand.

Just more fake news from the Democrats and liberals.

UPDATE:  Rowling has since apologized to the family of the boy, but not to Trump.

    Progressives are vile, demonic, small minded and pathetic little lying cretans, other than that they’re great people.

    I will never allow grandchildren or great grands to read the trash Rowling puts out. Who in the world cares what a non American fiction writer thinks? You liberals twist the facts to make them fit your pathetic agenda. Drop dead. Our President does not ignore anyone but lame stream news outlets and then for very valid reasons.

    There’s no “fake news” in the simple fact that by all measures, Trump is unqualified and unfit to be the President of the United States.

    No class. Rowling owes Trump AND ALL OF US an apology for spreading her fake news.

  • jg collins

    Off topic. Is that intended to be some sort of lame tu quoque argument? Or a red herring? Or just another stupid ad hominem? Trump has been judged the most qualified and most fit of those who actually ran for the office by the electoral college system. Hillary lost. Get over it.

    These left wing progressive liberal commie democrats are the lowest form of life on the planet, the best thing they know how to do is lie, falsify and attack our American way of life. If your a blue democrat I suggest you go Republican or Conservative because these low lives are determined to destroy America. It’s time to call them what they are socialist commies and understand what they stand for….

    Lying TED is just an idiotic lefty troll, unqualified and unfit to be a us citizen, with 0 arguments other than their hatred of Trump. In fact they do hate all conservatives, but they did show their true colors during this presidency. They lie, deceit, make up stuff, truth does not matter, and their only objective is to damage this president. Who is doing GREAT by the way, cracking down on all leftist agenda items, their worst nightmare. His is pretty qualified in my eyes , let’s see….
    supreme court stopped from moving left, pushing for choice in education, dismantling the EPA regulations, getting the leftist rats out of the activist justice department, enforcing immigration ban on unstable countries, border crossings down 70 %, taking on opioids and international gangs, toughness on lawless sanctuary cities, pulling out of the leftist global redistribution scheme named Paris accord, having spine in Siria and overall in the world after the apologist Hussein, would you like me to continue or I already ruined your day ?:I guess you have 8 ruined years AHAHAHHAHA

    Keith Olbermann is a Complete Tool. To this day, he probably still can’t figure out why he has been fired from all the primo jobs he has had. Even his Bosses can’t stand him or his vitriol.

  • FAKE POLLS… Quinnipiac Finds; 71 Percent Say President Is Not Levelheaded.. Here is the breakdown of who they asked these questions to
    Rep 23%
    Dems 33%
    Ind 37%
    Other 7%

    So if all things being equal Trump would already be behind 10% on any question. In other words if people answered along party lines and Indies split down the middle the highest number Trump could ever receive is basically around 45%. R23 + I18 + O4. This is why you ignore any poll that does not poll an equal number of voter’s 33% R-33% + D-33% + Ind-33%

    Next time you see polling the first thing you should look for is the methodology of the poll
