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.

CNN and NBC Paid Leftist Grifter $70,000 for His Capitol Chaos Footage That Included Ashli Babbitt Shooting

The invoices appeared in a court filing.



Invoices show that CNN and NBC paid $35,000 apiece to John Sullivan, a left-wing grifter who enjoys stirring up trouble, for his video footage of the January 6 Capitol chaos—footage that included the killing of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt.

The invoices were obtained by Politico and then posted on Twitter.

Politico linked to these invoices in a recent report on Sullivan’s court hearing. Judge Robin Meriweather has prevented prosecutors from seeking Sullivan’s blanket ban from Facebook and Twitter, but she has ordered Sullivan to cease his involvement with Insurgence USA, a group he founded, and to not use social media to incite riots or violence. Sullivan is currently under home detention and will also have his internet use monitored. He had been under 24-hour location monitoring via GPS until Judge Meriweather ordered that to be halted.

Big League Politics has covered John Sullivan before. Last month we wrote that he’s considered a pariah among Black Lives Matter activists in Utah because he likes to incite violence and then record and post it online to satisfy his compulsive attention seeking.

Conservatives have often described Sullivan as an “Antifa militant” or “BLM militant,” even going so far as to claim that his involvement in the January 6 Capitol siege meant that Antifa or BLM were behind the chaos. Although Sullivan did pose as a Trump supporter, shout incendiary remarks, and record footage at the Capitol that day, there is no evidence that Antifa or BLM conspired to infiltrate the protest and incite the breach.
