Wall Street Journal Doubles Down on Fake Report of Trump Obscuring the U.S.S. John McCain

The U.S. Navy has exposed fake news lies about President Trump.

Many fake news entities ran with a story originally broken by the Wall Street Journal yesterday claiming that President Donald J. Trump wanted the U.S.S. John McCain hidden from public view during a recent visit to Japan.

Prominent ‘Never Trumpers’ of the Right were quick to virtue signal based off of the unproven, unverified report.

However, this report turned out to be a fabrication. The Navy itself was forced to come out and correct the record in a Twitter post:

The President then came out and officially denied the report:

The Wall Street Journal initially produced the fake news report. The anti-Trump reporter Rebecca Ballhaus, who is known to post misleading propaganda to deride the President, got her facts wrong. The U.S.S. John McCain was never obscured according to the U.S. Navy, which she claimed when initially posting her report on Twitter.

There is no proof that the U.S.S. John McCain was ever obscured with a tarp, but the anti-Trump reporter still celebrated her CNN junket based on the fake news nonetheless.

Even after being exposed for peddling fake news, Ballhaus has doubled down in spite of the facts and stands by her reporting based on anonymous sources.

The President addressed the controversy earlier in the day during a press conference, reiterating that despite not supporting McCain’s policy legacy, including the Iraq War and saving Obamacare, he “would never do a thing like that.”

Even supposedly conservative outlets like the Wall Street Journal, owned by the Murdoch family who also run the increasingly left-leaning Fox News, cannot be trusted to report the facts when it comes to President Trump.
