Fake News Alert: Politico CAUGHT Making Up Story About Trump Taking Hat From Kid And Throwing It Into Crowd


evil trump hates kids hats

Here’s your fake news story of the day.

And this doesn’t appear to be just fake, but it appears to be deliberately edited.

Here’s the tweet from Politico, “A kid asks Trump to sign his hat at the White House Easter Egg Roll. The president signs … and then tosses the hat into the crowd.”

Oh my god! That evil Trump! He took the hat from a kid, then didn’t give it back to him and threw it into the crowd. The tweets in response are of course are all about what a horrible person he is to do that.

Politico put this up this morning, it has thousands of retweets.

This despite Micah Grimes of NBC informing Politico, an hour after they posted their tweet, that what they were saying wasn’t true.

Here’s the truth, where it shows from a different angle that he’s tossing it back to the same kid who gave it to him.

You can follow the kid leaning in, you see the hat held out, you see Trump take it, and the boy stand back up. Then Trump tosses it back to the boy and the boy catches it with his left hand.

Yet, the false Politico tweet is still up and there has been no later tweet explaining the truth.

Moreover, if you check the original Politico video, you may notice there’s an edit. Right as Trump reaches for the hat, but before he takes it. Then you see him signing the hat.

Why would that be? Why would you need an edit in such a short video, especially when you’re trying to make such a point? Only one reason: to disconnect, to make it harder to recognize that the boy who handed it to him was the same boy.

They really aren’t even trying to mask the bias…
