CNN Makes Up Hurricane Maria Death Toll Number, Claims Trump is Lying For Disputing It

Published

The fake news media is working overtime to discredit President Donald J. Trump ahead of Hurricane Florence’s landfall in the Carolinas.

“Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico,” said a Thursday CNN report. “President Donald Trump denied this reality as a hurricane barrels toward the Carolinas.”

However, at the end of August, CNN struck a different tune in a skeptically written article about the Puerto Rican government upping the death toll.

“Puerto Rico’s true death toll from Hurricane Maria remains elusive as the storm’s one-year anniversary approaches,” said that report from August 29.

After saying for months that only 64 people died in the storm, the Puerto Rican government upped the death toll to 2,975 after a university study made the estimation.

“But the higher figure, based on the findings of researchers from George Washington University in a study commissioned by the US commonwealth’s government, is only an approximation, not a concrete list of names, according to Gov. Ricardo Rossello,” the report said.

So the fact is this: No one knows how many people died as a result of Hurricane Maria. But since it is politically expedient for CNN, the propaganda arm of the DNC, to bash Trump at every possible turn, facts do not matter.

CNN wrote Thursday’s dishonest hit piece in response to two Tweets by the President proclaiming the truism mentioned above – that the actual death toll from Hurricane Maria is unknown.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000 …….. This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!” he said in back-to-back Tweets.

As usual, Trump has snuffed out the mainstream press’ nonsense, which he has been doing since his campaign days.

It undoubtably drives them insane, and only fuels more dishonest fake news hits against him, bolstering his case that he is the subject of unfair media coverage.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
