Eric Trump to MSNBC: See You in Court
Bad Democrat behavior roundup for the week of 8/26 to 9/2
Fake News outlet MSNBC made a big mistake when they thought they could intentionally spread defamatory lies about President Trump and get away with it.
Last week MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell reported what he described as a “story that wasn’t ready for reporting.” In other words, an unverified fabrication.
Regarding completely unsubstantiated reports that Deutsche Bank is in possession of documents that prove the President is in debt to the Kremlin, O’Donnell recklessly and irresponsibly suggested, “That would explain, it seems to me, every kind word that Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin, if true, and I stress the ‘if true’ part of this.”
The documents that could have disproven these allegations are a matter of public record. If O’Donnell had cared to even make a basic attempt at learning the truth—which is that no one is listed on those documents other than the President himself and his entities—there would have been no story. Apparently when you’re with MSNBC, a fake story is better than no story at all.
Rather than performing a simple online search that could have disproved the information, this so-called journalist falsely claimed proof of President Trump’s financial ties to Russian oligarchs had been unearthed. The story was pure speculation, and O’Donnell himself mentioned many times throughout his report that it hadn’t been proven yet. So why “report” on it at all?
Because it’s almost election time, that’s why. Isn’t it obvious? It seems to be, at least to everyone other than Liberals, who will believe anything they hear.
Charles Harder, a lawyer for President Trump, sent a letter to NBC Universal’s general counsel Susan Weiner last Wednesday threatening legal action if they didn’t admit their “false and defamatory, and extremely damaging” story was bogus.
In response, O’Donnell issued the weakest possible excuse for an apology. The disgraced host tweeted that he made an “error in judgment,” but then again mentioned that they don’t know if the story is actually false.
On the air O’Donnell said, “We don’t know whether the information is inaccurate…the fact is we do know it wasn’t ready for broadcast and for that I apologize.” So according to Democrat logic, it’s not a lie yet. It’s just a truth that hasn’t been proven in any way.
Eric Trump saw right through it, and he called O’Donnell and MSNBC out on Twitter.
In a tweet, the President’s son stated, “This was a reckless attempt to slander our family and smear a great company. Apologies are not enough when the true intent was solely to damage and cause harm. As a company, we will be taking legal action. This unethical behavior has to stop.”
It remains to be seen whether or not O’Donnell will be disciplined by the network.
Twisted Leftists Hope People Harmed by Hurricane Dorian
When it comes to the Left, there is virtually nothing they won’t do or say to lash out at President Trump. This week Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell and The Wire creator David Simon sank to a new low, even for Liberals, when they openly wished the hurricane would strike President Trump’s Palm Beach golf resort Mar-a-Lago.
So far, Hurricane Dorian has killed several people, including a young child, and the damage it’s done in the Bahamas has been described as a “historic tragedy.” It’s no laughing matter, unless you’re a Democrat. While Simon stuck to his guns and admitted what an awful person he is, unbelievably, Campbell claimed she was joking.
In yet another instance of an insincere apology from the Left, Prime Minister Campbell tweeted, “I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago (sic) and sincerely apologize to all it offended. It was intended as sarcasm-not a serious wish of harm.”
So everything is okay now. Sure, she wanted the hurricane to destroy property, cost jobs, and possibly cost lives at the resort, but only sarcastically. If President Trump had been that insensitive to the plight of those affected by the hurricane, imagine the Democrat outrage. Where is that outrage now?
Now Who Can’t Take a Joke?
Certain Democrats may find the thought of a hurricane hitting a resort funny, but their senses of humor are suddenly diminished when the joke is on them.
In Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix special Sticks & Stones, the controversial comedian pokes fun at Liberal call-out culture right from the beginning. In fact, he first ridicules Liberal intolerance at the 4:55 mark, and from there he doesn’t let up.
While Chappelle’s jokes may be offensive to Liberals, he stated right from the beginning that he didn’t care because they were eventually going to “come for” all celebrities. The hysterical, intolerant Left may soon be faced with more people who feel like the comedian does and who will also go too far in the other direction as a response to call-out culture.
For every action, there’s an equal reaction. Perhaps if the Democrats would quit overreacting to everything, Chappelle’s mostly unfunny special wouldn’t have had an audience in the first place.
