Wash. Post Says Trump Got Physical at Summit, Video Shows They’re Total Liars
It has become painfully obvious that the liberal media will attack President Donald Trump for virtually anything, even making up “news” if no legitimate avenue of attack appears.
Case in point is The Washington Post quite literally lying about Trump getting “physical” with the prime minister of Montenegro at Thursday’s meeting of leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Brussels, Belgium, making much ado about nothing while also criticizing him for “lecturing” NATO members about paying their proper share to fund the alliance.
As the various leaders of the NATO member nations — Montenegro officially joins the alliance on June 5 — were gathering together in one spot for a picture, Trump can be seen in the video placing his hand on PM Dusko Markovic’s shoulder as he slid past him to take a position at the front of the group.
Far from acting as if he’d just been assaulted, as the liberal media would have you believe, Markovic responded by smiling and giving Trump a pat on the back in return. You can watch the incident right here:
USA Today joined in on the act by stating that Trump had “shoved” Markovic, claiming that he “appeared to push aside” his counterpart from the tiny European nation.
However, it also reported that though White House press secretary Sean Spicer admitted that he hadn’t seen the video in question when asked by the media, he nevertheless reminded them that the standing order for group photos like the one they were setting up for were typically predetermined, meaning Trump wasn’t physically forcing his way to the front for a better spot, whatever the anti-Trump media would have you believe.
This is just further proof of the duplicitous manner in which the media report on the president. They have been itching for a chance to attack Trump over something as his phenomenal first foreign trip as president has gone remarkably well thus far.
It will be interesting to hear Markovic’s take on the incident, if the media ever get around to asking him about it — but since his response will likely be positive, they probably won’t ask, or, if they do, won’t report on his answer.
