President Trump made a whopper of a claim on Monday, suggesting that the media is deliberately ignoring terrorist attacks.
“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” he said to military leaders at U.S. Central Command. “And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
The comments would seem to be a response to the hubbub over Kellyanne Conway having repeatedly cited a non-existent terror attack in Bowling Green, Ky., in recent days. But Trump doesn’t appear to have totally invented this theory on the fly.
Instead, the kernel of the idea appears to have come from — or at least been propagated by — one of his favorite news sources: the conspiracy theory website InfoWars.
Expect Trump to start talking about how Sandy Hook was a false flag designed to distract the public from the Bowling Green Massacre any day now. In conclusion, Hillary Clinton was the more dangerous candidate!
