FAKE NEWS: Yahoo News Pretends Lindsey Graham Said This Awful Clinton-Era Quote Shaming Assault Accusers

Published

on

And they wonder why we don’t trust the media?

Wrap your head around this: Lindsey Graham was recently asked in an interview to respond to Trump’s controversial comments on Dr. Christine Ford made during a Mississippi rally when he mocked Ford for saying “I don’t know” so frequently during her Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

Graham openly denounced what the President said, and referenced a Clinton-era quote from Democratic operative James Carville in which he completely smeared Paula Jones as a paid “trailer park” player for accusing then-President Clinton of sexual harassment.

Trending: REPORT: Smollett Tells ‘Empire’ Castmates ‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’

Yahoo News, reporting on the interview, tweeted out this quote…as if Graham had said it himself. 

That is blatantly fake news no matter how you spin it.

Check it out:

“Sen. Lindsey Graham defends Trump’s mocking of Dr. Ford: ‘Everything he said was factual…this is what you get when you go through a trailer park with a $100 bill,’” Yahoo News wrote on Twitter. “The audience gasps.”

Here’s the thing: as The Washington Post was forced to clarify, while Graham said that…he was referencing what Carville said in the early 90’s about Paula Jones.

Here are his full comments, as reported by Conservative Tribune:

During a chat with the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, Senator Graham was asked to comment on a “personal, degrading attack” — those were the totally unbiased interviewer’s words — from President Trump questioning Ford’s testimony.

Graham pushed back, using Carville’s own words.

“Here’s what’s personally degrading: ‘This is what you get when you go through a trailer park with a hundred dollar bill,’” Graham said, quoting what a Democrat said in the 1990s about a female accuser.

Do you see the trick? By removing the context of Graham holding up Carville’s past words as an example of a truly degrading statement, Yahoo flipped his meaning 180 degrees. The Senator was criticizing people who degrade credible female accusers, whether they be Paula Jones or Ford.

“Graham went on to say he believed Ford was ‘treated respectfully’ by the prosecutor who questioned her before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week,” The National Review reported.

In fact, Graham also called out Trump for his recent off-the-cuff comments about Kavanaugh’s accuser.

“So President Trump went through a factual rendition that I didn’t particularly like and I would tell him, ‘Knock it off, you’re not helping,’” the Republican senator scolded.

Despite the fact that several outlets also had to clarify that the “trailer park” comment wasn’t Graham’s own, several on the left still cluelessly ran with it, like The Young Turk’s contributor John Iadarola who tweeted:

I don’t know if this guy is honestly confused or if he’s really this deliberately deceptive, but either way, he blatantly misled his 130K+ followers who fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

Woman Rips MAGA Hat From Man’s Head, Then Claims SHE Is the Victim [Details]

How in the world does she figure?

If a person snatches the MAGA hat from your head, who is at fault? That should be rhetorical.

According to a woman who did just that, she is the victim.

It’s getting to the point where you really can’t even make this stuff up anymore.

From Yahoo:

A woman who ripped off a man’s “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant says she wanted retribution for years of discrimination.

On Feb. 15th, Bryton Turner was eating at Casa Vallarta Mexican Restaurant in Falmouth, Mass., when a Brazilian woman, not being named by police, snatched off his red MAGA hat.

“Went out with some friends trying to enjoy some dinner and drinks when this ignoramus randomly tried to hit my hat off and started yelling at me…” Turner wrote on Facebook, sharing two videos. “I wasn’t going to press charges but in front of four cops she did it again so now she’s going to jail.”

[…]

Yahoo Lifestyle couldn’t reach the woman for comment. “I had a little bit to drink maybe that’s the reason that I couldn’t walk away but being discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she told Boston 25 News. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Check out the video posted by Bryton Turner, showing the woman snatching his hat…

Despite taking the time to fly to the Middle East to spend Christmas with the troops, President Trump and First Lady Melania were mocked by CNN and the like.

Go figure, right?

Melania wore the wrong boots.

Donald, well, was Donald. That’s always enough to set the MSM off in and of itself.

The worst part is that CNN blasted 45 for signing MAGA hats for the troops despite there being no rule against it.

What’s worse is that Obama signed Obama-type stuff for the troops back in the day, and the mainstream media was dead silent.

There’s a word for that.

It’s called hypocrisy.

From Daily Wire:

As noted by Joe Concha at The Hill, “The worst kind of bias is the bias of omission. And what’s missing from this report is precedent as it pertains to President Obama who, as a candidate, signed memorabilia for U.S. service members overseas in July 2008. Not a hint of criticism followed.”

SFGate reported on the Obama trip to Afghanistan at the time, though they never highlighted the signing of memorabilia by Mr. Obama.

Michelle did it, too:

CNN owes Trump a big apology.

Ocasio-Cortez Trolled for the Second Time After NEW Billboard Goes Up In NYC

And boom goes the dynamite!

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fought hard to make sure Amazon would not build a new headquarters in New York.

She celebrated after the company decided to pull out.

A couple of days ago, a billboard went up in Times Square lambasting the freshman lawmaker for her actions.

LOOK:

AOC saw the billboard.

She figured she had to respond.

She sent a tweet calling the sign “wack”:

The people behind the billboard saw AOC’s response.

They decided to go after her one more time…

Check this out, per Daily Wire:

Job Creators Network put up a second billboard that stated: “Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet.”

LOOK:

The criticism of Ocasio-Cortez “comes after Ocasio-Cortez vigorously defended her role in sinking Amazon’s move to New York City on Tuesday in the face of bipartisan criticism,” Fox News reported. “The freshman Democratic New York congresswoman has faced days of criticism from normally friendly media voices and fellow Democrats over her role in Amazon’s decision to pull back from building a $2.5 billion campus in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens.”

New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio had to correct Ocasio-Cortez for incorrectly thinking that “the $3 billion in tax breaks that were going to go to Amazon still existed after Amazon pulled out of NYC,” The Daily Wire reported.

And boom goes the dynamite!

Ocasio-Cortez believes she was born “privileged.”

Because she was born in the USA? Because she was born into wealth?

Nope. It’s ecause she was born straight.

WATCH:

While attacking former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who may run as an Independent for president in 2020, AOC wound up with egg all over her face.

See her tweet:

Pretty rude, right?

The problem is that Ocasio-Cortez clearly has no clue about Howard’s background.

-Schultz was born on July 19, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York. In an interview with Bloomberg, he said growing up in the projects — “loosely described as the other side of the tracks”

-He experienced poverty at an early age. When Schultz was 7 years old, his father broke his ankle while working as a truck driver picking up and delivering diapers. At the time, his father had no health insurance or worker’s compensation, and the family was left with no income.

Reactions:

Schultz isn’t exactly a conservative, but he has been ripping AOC and Senator Elizabeth Warren like he’s getting paid to do it.

This is how some Dems reacted after learning Schultz might run in 2020:
