The media revealed their true colors when President Trump announced a withdrawal of troops in northern Syria.
Progressives who often demand an end to war suddenly wanted our military fighting overseas forever.
ABC News went further, showing “combat” footage that supposedly happened after Trump’s decision. But we learned it was yet another case of fake news. President Trump was quick to call them out.
It’s pretty shocking to see liberals upset over Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from the Middle East. Aren’t these the people who have been complaining about our involvement in the area for over fifteen years? Yet now, because Trump is the one calling the shots, the left is suddenly so concerned over the fate of the Kurds.
Donald Trump has made it clear time and again that he’s not interested in engaging in endless wars. He is putting Americans first, not foreign battles that never have resolutions. He is not abandoning our allies, but making sure we are not wasting time, money, and lives.
Democrats were happy when Obama foolishly withdrew troops from Iraq. His premature move resulted in a vacuum that helped form ISIS. Not one liberal criticized his decision. Today, Trump is strategically withdrawing a small number of soldiers and the left has a meltdown.
In fact, fake news proprietor ABC aired “footage” of Turkish soldiers attacking and killing Kurdish civilians. We were supposed to be very upset about what they did. Naturally, the liberals tried to blame Trump for something someone else allegedly did. Funny how they always do that.
But it turns out the footage wasn’t even remotely accurate. And Trump is ticked off.
President Donald Trump on Monday evening hammered ABC News for airing a video that purportedly showed a recent Turkish military operation against Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, which actually appears to have been filmed at a Kentucky gun range in 2017.
“A big scandal at @ABC News. They got caught using really gruesome FAKE footage of the Turks bombing in Syria. A real disgrace,” the president wrote on Twitter. Tomorrow they will ask softball questions to Sleepy Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, like why did Ukraine & China pay you millions when you knew nothing? Payoff?”
The video, which ABC News reported was of an attack on the border town of Tal Abyad, was broadcasted Sunday on World News Tonight and on Monday’s edition of Good Morning America. Yet, a comparative analysis by a technology news site found the footage was filmed at Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. “[I]t’s clear that the videos are the same,” Gizmodo concluded.

ABC was forced to post a correction and apology, but only after people online started to complain. Even though it was obvious the footage was fake, ABC aired it by saying this is the result of Trump’s “abandoning” of our allies.
They had no problem using footage they either didn’t verify or knew was fake to attack Donald Trump. Even though Democrats have been complaining for years about our ongoing involvement in the Middle East.
It’s as if, they don’t really care about what’s going on. They only want to find reasons to attack Donald Trump!
Suddenly Democrats care about ISIS and our allies in the Middle East. Had Trump sent more troops to Syria, they would have accused him of escalating conflict. Had he done nothing, they would have accused him of inaction.
ABC went as far as to misrepresent footage to smear the president. And the media wonders why we don’t trust them. Public respect for the news is at an all-time low. The obvious liberal bias in our mainstream media is overwhelming.
Yet these clowns can’t see how they are destroying their own industry. They don’t make any attempts to fix this problem and return to honest broadcasting. In fact, they deliberately pull stunts like this, to further hurt their reputations.
Trump is completely correct, this was a disgrace. These kinds of actions need to be addressed. A major news network can’t get away with blatantly lying about a president. I’m sure you agree.
