Melania Trump was just attacked by the media in the worst way
No First Lady has been attacked more by the national media than Melania Trump.
They’ve criticized everything from her choice of high heels, to the way she decorated the White House for Christmas, and even her Slovenian accent.
But this latest headline was a blatant fake news assault against Melania.
Newsweek staked out their territory as #NeverTrump during the 2016 campaign.
They’ve run stories pushing the Russia collusion narrative (which has become little more than a year long fishing expedition).
But while criticizing the first family’s personal affairs was previously off-limits, Newsweek just launched an attempt to smear Melania Trump’s character.
Newsweek published an articled headlined: Melania Trump Orders Removal of Near-200-Year-Old Tree from the White House.
The Daily Caller reports:
At first read, Melania sounds like an evil tree-killer who wants to purge the White House of any pre-Trump history. What other reason could she possibly have for removing a beautiful 200-year-old tree?
Well, as the Newsweek article goes on to explain, the tree is dying.
The tree in question is a Jackson magnolia, and it has been on the south facade of the White House since the 1800s. Tree specialists determined on Tuesday that the tree, which is the oldest on the White House grounds, is structurally unstable and is being held up artificially.
The situation is so bad that the tree could apparently fall at any time, most likely killing anyone who has the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Newsweek’s tweet of their story was retweeted thousands of times – spreading a blatantly misleading headline devised to tarnish the First Lady’s image.
But those who read the article saw that keep the tree would be dangerous to White House visitors.
Newsweek’s anti-Trump spin was nothing more than fake news.
