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 Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction

Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.

Published

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.

Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.

In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.

I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”

Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.

Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.

CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
