Trump Fact-Checks NBC for Headline Claiming He Called Robert E. Lee a “Great General”

Published

Trump often gets criticized by both friends and foes for his liberal use of Twitter.

Say what you will about his choices to mock and belittle media personalities and dangerous dictators alike on the platform, there is certainly a unique advantage to being able to hear directly from the president himself, instead of the blatantly biased media go-between.

While Trump usually goes on epic tweet storms when he gets miffed with the press, causing a backlash, not to mention 48 hours of news coverage, from the press itself.

But following a recently grossly mischaracterized quotation that NBC had extracted from the President’s rally in Ohio over the weekend, Trump called them out simply and to the point, forcing NBC to issue a correction.

This is one very good reason for the President to have a Twitter account, because, due to the nature of the misquote, this incident would have otherwise continued to fuel the false impression that he is a raging racist.

Ohio is the birthplace of Union General Ulysses S. Grant, and Trump praised the legendary military leader during the rally. Leading up to this, however, he mentioned Grant’s Confederate counterpart, Robert E. Lee.

“So Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee,” he explained.

Fair–Lee did lead a military campaign that proved to be a formidable challenge for the Union army for quite some time.

Trump’s point, though, was to praise Grant, who he also said was “a great general,” who “knocked the hell out of everyone.”

“It also gave you a general, who was incredible. He drank a little bit too much,” Trump said, to laughter from the crowd.

So, in other words, Trump basically admitted to being a racist, right? Apparently, according to NBC copywriters:

“WATCH: President Trump says ‘Robert E. Lee was a great general’ during Ohio rally, calling the Confederate leader ‘incredible,'” they tweeted out, with a conveniently edited clip from the speech.

Trump was not having it.

“NBC News has totally and purposely changed the point and meaning of my story about General Robert E Lee and General Ulysses Grant. Was actually a shoutout to warrior Grant and the great state in which he was born. As usual, dishonest reporting. Even mainstream media embarrassed!” he tweeted.

The network, surprisingly, actually took account for their “mistake”.

The President was apparently satisfied.

There is truly nowhere for parents to go for entertainment for their kids that is free of the radical transgender agenda and now even the Muppets are pushing this sexualized garbage on kids. The Disney Junior kids show Muppet Babies recently featured an episode with Muppet favorite Gonzo going transgender. In the episode, Gonzo’s friend, Summer, happily told Gonzo that she was going to dress like a “princess” for a royal ball. But when Gonzo became excited that he also could wear a dress, Summer said he was a boy so he couldn’t dress like a princess. After he said he wanted to wear a dress, Summer told Gonzo, “But Gonzo, Piggy and I are the princesses, we wear the dresses.” “That’s right! According to the royal handbook, the girls come as princesses, and the boys come as knights,” Piggy added. Gonzo was portrayed as being upset over the conversation. He wanted to dress like a princess, but was told he cannot do so. As Gonzo sulked, Rizzo the Fairy RatFather appeard to magically bestow a gown and mask on Gonzo so he can attend the ball as a female, too. So, Gonzo attends the ball as a mysterious woman named Gonzorella. And then comes the big reveal. https://youtu.be/Rw6h1NZkzQk https://youtu.be/BkyaenLCZ8k “Everyone, there’s something I need to tell you,” Gonzo said, placing a glass slipper on his foot. “The princess who came to your ball tonight was me. I’m Gonzorella!” When Gonzo was questioned about the dress, he answered, “You all expected me to look a certain way.” “I don’t want you to be upset with me. But I don’t want to do things because that’s the way they’ve always been done either. I want to be me,” he said. https://twitter.com/HistoryMuppet/status/1418996764397420544 Unsurprisingly, the Disney videos had comments turned off on its…

American ‘Medical’ Association Argues to Remove Sex from All Birth Certificates

The American Medical Association is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and it should be removed from birth certificates.

The American Medical Association, an organization supposedly dedicated to science and medicine, is now openly saying that there is no such thing as “sex” and so the designation should be removed from all birth certificates. The AMA once again proves that politics, not science or medicine, is what drives them. https://twitter.com/WebMD/status/1421312166108581888 “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female, and making that information available on the public portion, perpetuates a view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. This type of categorization system also risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization,” said AMA Board Chair-Elect Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, M.D. Not all doctors were on board with the move. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Robert Jackson told WebMD Health News that he opposed the measure. “We as physicians need to report things accurately,” Jackson said. “All through medical school, residency, and specialty training we were supposed to delegate all of the physical findings of the patient we’re taking care of. I think when the child is born, they do have physical characteristics either male or female and I think that probably should be on the public record. That’s just my personal opinion.” In any case, it is clear that the AMA is not interested in facts or science. Eliminating gender on birth certificates would put the health of many people in danger when doctors can’t easily discover what biological gender their patients are.
