The Fake News paper today smeared President Trump today with a headline that did not match the story.
In January, President Trump fired Obama appointee Sally Yates for insubordination and failure to carry out a legal order.
Marxists made her a heroine on the order of Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a Palestinian terrorist who led an anti-Trump march.
Yates asked the House Intelligence Committee to let her testify that President Trump is a Russian agent, or some such conspiratorial nonsense.
The committee said sure, get permission from the White House.
The meeting was set for this week. On Monday, though, Chairman Devin Nunes canceled all meetings this week as relations are strain by his Democratic counterpart, Adam Schiff, accusing him ostensibly of being a spy for President Trump.
These are the kind of shenanigans one can expect from the Democratic Party, which still refuses to accept the will of the people on November 8 -- when Trump won the most states by anyone in 20 years.
The Washington Post ran Fake News today headlined:
Trump administration sought to block Sally Yates from testifying to Congress on RussiaIt offered as proof three letters.
None of them were from the White House. In fact, buried in the Fake News story was this:
During a briefing Tuesday, White House spokesman Sean Spicer denied that the White House sought to hinder Yates’s testimony. “I hope she testifies, I look forward to it,’’ he said. “To suggest in any way, shape or form that we stood in the way of that is 100 percent false.’’What does this mean?
Fake News relies on incurious readers. They look at the headline. They see a link to letters. They think gotcha, especially if they are dupes who voted for Hillary.
I support a free press.
When do we get one?
I tire of their darkness.
