In what may represent a stunning display of horrific race relations in the mainstream media, an African American reporter for Fox 5 DC referred to an attack on a white man as a “terrific attack” on live television, and the news station uploaded the video to its website.
“A massive beat down caught on camera in the district,” said one Fox 5 reporter, before another added “More than a dozen teens carrying out the attack near a D.C. hotel, Fox 5’s Ike Ejiochi is on top of the story for us tonight, he’s live in Northwest with the details.”
The video then turns to a live feed of Ejiochi on the ground at the scene of the horrific attack.
“Jim, this was a terrific attack,” says Ejiochi. Big League Politics edited the clip for brevity, but Ejiochi did not correct himself, or use another adjective to describe the beating. Full video is available at Fox 5’s website.

While “terrific” does have the possible alternate definition “exciting or fit to excite fear or awe” on Dictionary.com, the most common definition of “terrific” is “unusually fine: magnificent”.
According to Fox 5’s own reporting, it was a truly disgusting attack. Over 12 African American teens, who may be as young as 13 or 14, are scene punching, kicking, pushing, and spitting on two white men in video captured on local security cameras.
It is not currently known whether the attack was racially motivated.
Video of the incident captured by a surveillance camera shows the two men being surrounded while walking toward the doors of the hotel. One of the victims was able to get inside of the lobby while the other victim was punched and pushed to the ground after being swarmed by several of the attackers.
Police say the suspects could be as young as 13 or 14 years old. The man who is seen on the video being struck, kicked and even spit on was transported to a nearby hospital. He suffered injuries to the head and left eye socket.
The second victim suffered a swollen left eye and was also admitted to the hospital. He told police that before the attack began, one of the suspects screamed “That’s him,” and pointed to the man he was with.
The D.C. Police Department is currently seeking “the public’s assistance in identifying suspects in reference to an Aggravated Assault offense” related to the incident.
The police department posted a Tweet about the incident, and included a YouTube video of the horrific attack:
MPD seeks the public's assistance in identifying suspects in reference to an Aggravated Assault offense that occurred on 7/14/19 in the 1900 blk of Connecticut Avenue, NW.

Big League Politics contacted Fox 5 D.C. to see if they intended to describe the terrible attack as “terrific” and did not receive an immediate response.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
