Trumps HILARIOUS Response To Fake News Reporter

More News For You

On Thanksgiving day, Newsweek published a fake news story about what President Trump was doing on his Thanksgiving.

The writer commented that the President was playing on Twitter and out golfing among other leisurely things. That writer later had to eat those words after discovering what President Trump was actually doing that Thanksgiving day. Trump had arranged a secret thirteen-hour flight to Afghanistan to visit troops and help serve them a thanksgiving meal.

According to Breitbart,

President Donald Trump mocked Newsweek after they reported Thursday he spent Thanksgiving golfing and tweeting. In fact, the president was secretly traveling to Afghanistan to visit deployed American troops.

The Newsweek story, first published at 10:16 a.m., was later updated to reflect the president’s visit.

“This story has been substantially updated and edited at 6:17 pm EST to reflect the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan,” read an editors note after Trump Jr. mocked the news outlet.

The Washington Post sold Newsweek in 2010 for a dollar and changed hands several times before ending its print magazine in 2012. In 2018, Newsweek split from IBT Media into a standalone company.

A similar situation happened when President Trump visited the troops in Iraq during Christmas in 2018. NBC News reported Trump was the first president since 2002 not to visit the troops at Christmastime, while he was secretly traveling to Iraq, prompting widespread ridicule from Trump staff and his supporters.

Soon after President caught wind of the news story and shot back in a tweet, “I thought Newsweek was out of business?”

The writer of the article tried to say it was a simple mistake. But it was a dishonest mistake and she didn’t bother to find out the facts before writing the phony story. She followed up with an apology tweet but the damage was already done.

“Trump headed to Afghanistan to surprise U.S. troops on Thanksgiving. Deleting this tweet because it was written before knowing about the president’s surprise visit to Afghanistan-an honest mistake. Story has already been updated, as shown in the screenshot.”
