A TIME Columnist Fabricated a Trump Quote. A Bunch of Idiot Media People Shared It. Here’s the Full List.

It was a bad morning for some of the more easily-duped political types on Twitter.

A TIME columnist and New York University professor made up a wild quote Sunday morning, which painted President Donald J. Trump in a bad light. Many members of our esteemed media and political commentary apparatus immediately jumped to share the false quote – which quickly went viral – without verifying that it was real.

“President Trump in Tokyo: ‘Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,'” Ian Bremmer said on Twitter.

Only four hours later did Bremmer admit that the quote was a fake, after it had made its way around the internet. He pretended as if he was doing some sort of social experiment, saying the misinformation he intentionally spread was “objectively a completely ludicrous quote,” and that people on Twitter are partisan and will believe whatever fits their worldview. (Gee, thanks for the insight, professor).

“That’s the point,” he said.

Media figures attributing false quotes to Trump is pretty horrid, but worse were the reactions from other media people who were salivating at the opportunity to cast Trump in a negative light.

Here’s a list of the culprits, compiled by Nick Monroe:

Fernand R. Amandi, a political commentator and professor.

“If you still support Trump, it means you also hate the United States,” he said at the risk of painting with a broad brush.

David Lazarus is a columnist for the Los Angeles Times and KTLA, as well as a radio show host.

“Every time you think he can’t stoop lower,” Lazarus said, proving that he’s definitely not a partisan hack.

Jessica Ellis seems to be some kind of producer. I’m not really sure what she does, but Twitter has deemed her enough of a public figure to give her a blue check mark.

“At this point I’m not even mad at him for being a raging fuckhead monster. My fury is reserved for every weak, amoral, pudding-willed Republican continuing to do nothing,” she said, adding in a separate Tweet “There’s a reason we charge accomplices and accessories to crimes.”

Quartz technology editor Mike Murphy got in on the fun, accusing Trump of “treason,” because nobody knows that word means anymore.

Bill Prady is the executive produce of Hollywood sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” who appears to have spent a good amount of time researching what the United Nations had to say about North Korea. In other news, Hollywood’s opinions continue to be useless.

Confirming the level of intelligence of our intelligence services, former CIA spook Emily Brandwin took a crack at Trump.

Jeremy Pond, a self-described “PR Maven” called for Trump’s impeachment.

Virginia Senate candidate, attorney, and social justice dork Qasim Rashid joined the party.

Wall Street Journal writer Farnaz Fassihi jumped in, too.

Digital media attorney and unremarkable blue check-haver Antone Johnson said the Republican party is broken – and then that he had “no words.”

No outrage cycle would be complete without RussiaGate conspiracy theorist and CNN contributor Ana Navarro giving her hysterical take.

Shawn Sebastian, a human rights lawyer (a shocking number of lawyers fell for this hoax) weighed in, and then deleted his take on the situation.

NPR correspondent Pam Fessler noted that Kim Jong Un is a murderer, for those who might have mistakenly thought the dictator is a swell guy.

Professor and former Virginia House Delegate David I. Ramadan said Trump is an “EXTREME.MORON,” which is a perfect illustration of the level of critical though at America’s higher institutions of learning.

Zac Petkanas, former Senior Advisor to Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential campaign called for Trump to be removed under the 25th Amendment, saying that Trump is “not in control of his faculties.” This, from a guy who fell for a made up quote.

Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Nebraska’s 2nd District Kara Eastman demonstrated her fitness for the U.S. Congress. Unfortunately, I say that un-ironically.

Author Andy Glockner tried to disqualify Trump from a presidency that he won three years ago. 2016 wants its talking points back.

Dante Atkins, who says he used to work on Capitol Hill and apparently likes spiders – a lot – suggested that Republicans should protest over something that Trump never said.

Then there was Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), who, as Monroe points out, has recently been on his high horse complaining Trump was spreading “misleading” information about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Twitter person Ally Maynard warned of our impending death.

Another Hollywood guy named Tom Ortenberg said that Trump is a “traitor.”

British commentator Adrian Hilton chimed in while the Brexit Party dominated in the United Kingdom’s Sunday elections.

Drew Shiller, a grown man who talks about sports for a living, said Trump is an “embarrassment.”

Finally, “cyber risk researcher” Chris Vickery contributed a cliché “can you imagine if…” scenario.

Mercifully, that is where the list ends.

SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror

Et tu, Fox News?

Published

on

A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.

Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.

“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.

“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.

“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”

“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.

Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:

A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.

The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.

“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”

Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.

“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.

Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.

President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
