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

Published

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.

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.

Joe Biden is certainly transforming America… for the worst. This month the U.S. Air Force was pleased to announce that it had held its first drag queen show which the service insisted was necessary for morale and military readiness. The drag queen show was held on June 17 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, according to Breitbart News. Per Breitbart: Nellis Air Force Base and the 99th Air Base Wing hosted its first-ever drag show Thursday, June 17, at the Nellis Club. The event was sponsored by a private organization and provided an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the history and significance of drag performance art within the LGBT+ community. Ensuring our ranks reflect and are inclusive of the American people is essential to the morale, cohesion, and readiness of the military. Nellis Air Force Base is committed to providing and championing an environment that is characterized by equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion. Breitbart added: The drag queen show came to light after Air Force veteran podcaster “BK” posted a digital flyer for the event that read: “DRAG-U-NELLIS” and “CLASS IS IN SESSION.” “Discover the significance of Drag in the LGBT+ Community at the Nellis Club,” it said. It was scheduled for Friday, June 17, at 5 p.m. and “Sponsored by the Nellis Top 3.” https://twitter.com/BravoKiloActual/status/1405917447010492418 Nellis Air Force Base is home to the Warfare Center where pilots undergo the most demanding advanced air combat training in the country. “The crews do not come to learn how to fly, but instead how to be the best combat aviators in the world,” the base’s website says. No wonder the whole world is starting to laugh at the U.S. military. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
