In response to Tucker Carlson’s hit coverage of the rise and fall of the now-discredited Covington Catholic hate hoax on Monday, President Donald Trump spoke on the matter for the first time in a tweet.
Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false – smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson

Many conservatives and media accountability advocates had been calling for President Trump to use his immense national platform to speak on behalf of the defamed kids, who fortunately now seem to be getting a degree of justice after several legacy media platforms and personalities were forced to issue embarrassing apologies and retractions for the fake news they spread in regards to the incident.
Although some progressives and liberals (and even establishment conservatives) have faced reality and admitted their initial assessment of the incident was based upon false premises, several have dug their heads in the sand, continuing to tar the Kentucky Catholic high schoolers as “racists.” Reza Aslan, who shockingly called for Sandmann (the ‘smirking’ 16 year old kid Trump referenced in his tweet) to be “punched in the face,” remains apologetic for the debunked narrative accusing the kids of harassing Philips as of Monday night.
However, it’s possible that the attempt from progressives to smear the high schoolers who were confronted by Nathan Philips at the Lincoln Memorial could resume in full strength now that President Trump has brought additional attention to the matter.
Some of the individuals seeking justice for the Covington kids have suggested that President Trump offer them an invitation to visit the White House, an idea that would surely drive progressives intent on falsely accusing them of harassing Nathan Philips insane.
The Covington kids have already been invited to visit the Polish Parliament by one of its members, Dominik Tarczynski.
