Nicolle Wallace repeats broadly discredited claims to assault Trump
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace pushed three debunked claims about President Donald Trump in one single 13-minute phase of her present on Tuesday.
Wallace managed to repeat two of these discredited lies in underneath one minute throughout “Deadline: White House” on MSNBC.
Wallace, who repeatedly accuses Fox News of selling “misinformation,” additionally promoted a widely known falsehood about Trump that was instantly contradicted by video footage she had simply proven.
The first phony declare Wallace promoted was relating to Trump’s look at Lafayette Square amind the violent Black Lives Matter riots in Washington D.C. final 12 months.
Wallace devoted a full phase to criticizing the Trump household for its alleged disdain of the Bible.
“Hyper-masculine, real men show their faith by gassing protesters in Lafayette Square in order to — for the sole purpose of — being able to hoist a Bible above Trump’s head as a photo prop, upside-down I believe, in front of St. John’s church,” she stated. (Emphasis in unique.)
Last June 1, President Trump visited the St. John’s Episcopal Church, usually referred to as “the church of presidents,” which rioters set hearth to throughout arson-tinged unrest.
Although the legacy media — and (*3*)candidate Joe Biden — accused the president of ordering the U.S. Park Police to spray folks with tear gasoline in order to stage a “photo op,” an official authorities report launched underneath the Biden administration cleared Trump of these fees.
“The evidence we reviewed showed that the USPP cleared the park to allow a contractor to safely install antiscale fencing in response to destruction of [f]ederal property and injury to officers that occurred on May 30 and May 31,” the report stated.
USPP officers “made those decisions” and commenced clearing the realm “several hours before they knew of a potential [p]residential visit to the park, which occurred later that day.”
Wallace then moved on to a different false declare about Trump and the Bible.
That lie got here lower than 60 seconds after Wallace performed a clip of an interview with then-candidate Trump saying he wouldn’t title his favourite Bible passage, as a result of his religion was “very personal.”
“The Bible clearly is so special to Donald Trump that in that moment, he couldn’t think of a single passage that he liked, and it was second only to The Art of the Deal,” Wallace stated, citing the president’s e book.
But in the video she had simply performed, the longer term president instructed Bloomberg News that he thought-about the Bible his favourite e book, not his personal bestseller.
When folks at his marketing campaign rallies “hold up The Art of the Deal, I say, ‘My second favorite book of all time.’ But I just think the Bible is just something very special,” he stated.
“The whole Bible is incredible,” he stated.

Next, Wallace pushed one other discredited declare about Trump’s emotions on the navy.
She repeated the long-discredited, anti-Trump canard that Donald Trump refused to go to a navy cemetery and referred to as fallen U.S. troopers “losers.”
Wallace stated Trump’s alleged hostility to the Bible seemed like “a direct echo” of “an earlier Atlantic [magazine] piece about Donald Trump calling those that served our nation in the navy suckers. …
“He had horrible issues to say about anybody who had been injured or misplaced their life serving this nation.
“So if you happen to serve your nation, you’re a sucker.
“If you learn and cling to the teachings of the Bible, you’re a sucker.”
“That stoking of anger is so deliberate… Anger is a very powerful force in politics. I went to Trump rallies often during the campaigns in 2016 and 2020, and there’s a deliberate stoking of anger…” – @KattyKay_ w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/djaxbyMQ7w

An article revealed in The Atlantic in September 2020 asserted that President Trump canceled a go to to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery close to Paris “because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead.”
It went on to quote nameless sources who claimed President Trump stated, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
“It was entirely a weather-related decision, and I thought the proper thing to do,” stated Bolton.
“I never heard he made that kind of comment about another country’s forces either, no.”
Former presidential counselor Johnny DeStefano stated plainly, “I was on this trip. The Atlantic bit is not true. Period.” Former performing White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney stated Trump “was outwardly in awe of the accomplishments of the Allied Forces, and the sacrifices they paid,” as he surveyed the battlefield on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The Atlantic’s proprietor, Laurene Powell Jobs, has donated greater than $1.2 million to Democratic candidates since 2019.
Wallace has repeatedly accused Fox News and different conservative information retailers of spreading “misinformation.”
Last January, Wallace — a former marketing campaign strategist to John McCain — stated solely individuals who share “the truth” ought to be capable of converse on the air, particularly about the 2020 presidential election.
“It would be my policy that a Republican must assert the truth before they’re allowed to share any other views,” she stated.
“If we can protect against counterfeit dollar bills, we should be able to protect against fake news that we now know has the potential to kill people,” concluded Wallace.
.@NicolleDWallace requires the everlasting expulsion and punishment for any and all types of conservative media that run counter to her political opinions. She says Republicans ought to be BANNED from talking until they first converse “the truth.”
