I’m sure they’ll all get right on that retraction stuff first thing in the morning.
Its said that a lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can get its pants on. This tear gas lie is proof of that. For nearly an entire day, the whole of the press corps frantically reported the news of a tear gas attack on peaceful protestors in Lafayette Park, with no evidence to support such claims. We now know through the U.S. Park Police that neither they, nor any of their law enforcement partners, used tear gas to quell rising violence. We also know that police discovered stashes of weapons like glass bottles, baseball bats, and metal poles hidden nearby, which are indeed strange items to have on hand for a peaceful protest. Every news organization which reported the tear gas lie should immediately correct or retract its erroneous reporting.
- Tim Murtaugh, Trump 2020 communications director
It’s disappointing. Why didn’t tear gassed those rioters. Tough words in Twitter but weak action.
If Trump hesitates to tear gas those rioters to defend the law and order, he’d better stop twittering tough words.
The rioters were removed. I doubt Trump is micromanaging police tactics.
There are several videos of gas used supposedly in DC. Where are the locations of these videos? I am not familiar enough of DC to know what I am seeing.
If there was teargas used so Trump could walk done the street to a church... Then why wasn’t he being stricken with symptoms of teargas smoke?
So how do you fix a press that is diligently working against the interests of the people and the country but for the interests of a not ready for prime time oligarchy (that is in turn working for the interests of the Chinese Communist Party?)
They are doubling down on it. This is going to go on for a while.
