After the Presidency of Donald Trump, CNN will forever have a tarnished name.
He has made the term “fake news” synonymous with the news network.
And now, even CNN has been forced to admit they are liars.
Perhaps the biggest lie of Trump’s time in office comes from the infamous white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA of 2017.
Following the rally, which resulted in the death of one woman and two police officers, Trump sounded off his disgust with the racist and violent elements at the rally.
Trump made it clear that people who oppose the removal of historical confederate statues are “very fine people.”
“You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name,” Trump stated.
But despite Trump also making it clear that the white supremacists and neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally,” the media claimed Trump was referring to them as “fine people.”
The lie has gone so far that now former Vice President Joe Biden is using clips from the rally as part of his campaign announcement.
But CNN has been forced to admit that Trump did condemn the bad people at the rally.
“Now, elsewhere in those remarks, Trump did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said on a recent show.
While CNN is willing to admit that Trump did not call the white supremacists “fine people,” they aren’t willing to admit they are one of the main networks that contributed to that lie.
Since the rally, they have consistently used his quotes out of context in an attempt to malign the President.
And because of this, the top Democrat in the race for President is using it to base his entire campaign on.
In reality, Trump’s statement on the rally is one of the only reasonable statements to come out about it.
While the majority of those at the rally were there to incite violence on both sides, there were those there who simply wanted to stand up for historical monuments.
Trump stands up for law and order and isn’t willing to give those committing violence a pass just because there were bad people on the other side.
