Carpy Diem

Yesterday, this happened as brought to you via Wombat-socho's "In The Mailbox: 11.06.17"Fake News About Koi – Why Nobody Trusts The Press
President Trump has begun a 13-day trip through Asia, beginning in Japan. His meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seems to have gone very well. Abe presented Trump with hats saying, “Donald and Shinzo…Make Alliance Even Greater.”

But of course, in the eyes of the liberal media, the president must never be allowed a success of any kind. So the press invented a “gaffe” for Trump. At one point during his visit, Trump and Abe both fed koi, i.e., Japanese carp. Big deal. But reporters ridiculed the president for ultimately dumping the remainder of his box of food into a pond. CNN, in particular, went nuts on this theme. It is hard to imagine anything more trivial, but for the press, no opportunity to smear President Trump can be foregone.

CNN went so far as to publish a misleading video. It failed to show, and the derisive tweets failed to acknowledge, that Prime Minister Abe first dumped his box of fish food into the pond, and Trump followed suit.

So it was a complete and total lie. Remember, they lie every chance they get.
