Fake news has been a serious problem since Trump emerged on the scene. With the Left so desperate to destroy him and conservatives in general, they’ve ramped up their propaganda efforts to Soviet levels.
No matter how many times their lies are exposed, they keep the deceitful narratives coming, hoping that their near ubiquitous control of media and constant bombardment of the public with left-wing lies will turn people to their side. It’s been a rather successful enterprise thus far, but bit by bit, folks are coming to realize that the media’s out of control. The latest example of the Left’s fake news peddling came from NBC, which falsely and dangerously reported that Trump planned on increasing our nuclear arsenal.
As reported at the Daily Caller, in response to such an explosive claim, Secretary of Defense James Mattis had no choice but to publicly discredited the NBC report on Wednesday, which claimed President Donald Trump demanded a tenfold increase in the size of the nuclear arsenal.
“Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal are absolutely false,” Mattis said in a statement. “This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible.” It’s one thing for liberal clowns to accuse Trump of things like bigotry and incompetence, but making wild claims about nuclear weapons is too far.
The initial NBC report suggested that Trump’s supposed request to beef up our nuclear arsenal by 10 times its current size caused Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call him a “moron,” part of another report which both the secretary of state and the president have criticized for being fabrications.
Mattis wasn’t the only member of the administration that gave NBC a lashing. Trump also excoriated NBC while talking to reporters.
“Frankly, it’s disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write and people should look into it,” Trump told reporters. “I never discussed increasing [the nuclear arsenal]. That is fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news recently.”
It seems the morons at NBC have really gotten desperate to claim that Trump wants a tenfold increase in or nuke stockpile. You’d think they would have gone with a more believable number, but I guess it’s emblematic of their disdain for the American people. They think we’re all so stupid that we’ll believe anything they publish, so long as they say something like “insiders say” or “reports indicate.” But thanks to Trump’s constant highlighting of the media’s tricks, people are waking up to liberal media’s attempts to deceive us all.
