Buzzfeed news has this running and it was interesting to see some of the tom-foolery going around the interwebs.

One thought on “Hoaxes, misinformation and lots of BS

  1. This list of lies would not be complete without our presidents efforts to inflame and insult.

    “Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. @SecretService. They were not only totally professional, but very cool,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor, @MurielBowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn’t let the D.C. Police get involved. ‘Not their job.’”

    It turns out the DC Police not just part of the security trying to control the protests but the loaned some equipment to the Secret Service.

    “The Washington Post and CNN both reported that D.C. police were on hand on Friday night, along with other law enforcement agencies, as officers pushed back on protesters in Lafayette Park. The Secret Service later confirmed that D.C. police officers were on scene at the protest.“

    The DC mayor replied to the lying president:

    “My police department will always protect DC and all who are in it whether I agree with them (such as those exercising their First Amendment Right) or those I don’t (namely, @realdonaldtrump),” she tweeted. “While he hides behind his fence afraid/alone, I stand w/ people peacefully exercising their First Amendment Right after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd & hundreds of years of institutional racism.”

    “I call upon our city and our nation to exercise great restraint even while this President continues to try to divide us. Our power is in peace, in our voices and ultimately at the ballot box in November,” she added.

    The man is a disgrace to the office and a blot on our nation.

    IMHO
