So sad when these stories prove to be untrue. :frowning:


#3

I’m confused. What exactly is sad?


#4

The story was a lie. The man lied.


#5

(In best Gilbert Gottfried voice) “Why am I not surprised?”


#6

Even if it was true, it says his mum died in Iraq after being banned from entering USA. I don’t understand what the problem is, she died in Iraq, which I presume is her home? And if USA was her home, then why was a dying or sick person travelling like that in the first place?
Either way, I keep seeing this happen. There seems to be some kind of status in being a victim I have seen many stories like that and some don’t get to be proven they were a lie which is even sadder.


#7

Has this story been vetted through the “Blame Trump Committee”?

It’s always Trump’s fault.

Which replaces the Always Bush’s Fault.


#8

The US press has been more than happy to run with it though…the ends never justify the means.


#9

Of course he did. The truth doesn’t matter, it just has to fit the popular narrative.


#10

Has any of the MSM apologized for running this fake story?


#11

Zeke Miller, reporter who claimed MLK’s bust was removed from oval office, apologized for the ‘mistake’.

Being FIRST to report something is taking a front seat to VERIFYING, hence, the fake news.
