Trump had the Fake News media eating their words after he took a trip on the Air Force One
The Fake News media thought they had Trump dead to rights.
Reporters and anti-Trump Hollywood celebrities couldn’t send their tweets fast enough to pile on.
But there was just one problem.
On Christmas day, NBC ran a headline that was totally fake. The headline read:
“Trump becomes first president since 2002 not to visit troops at Christmastime”
But just hours later, President Trump was in Iraq rallying with the U.S. military.
President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas. pic.twitter.com/s2hntnRwpw

The Fake News media couldn’t believe their eyes.
So they claimed their reporting shamed President Trump into taking a “surprise” trip to save face.
Shaming him seems to work. https://t.co/KMSPnDAPyE

But there was another problem with that.
Politico reported, “According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks.”
After all, you don’t just send a sitting U.S. President into a warzone with no advance notice.
The Fake News media will stop at nothing to try to make this president look bad.
But every time it backfires on them.
And they have torched their credibility.
