In what you would expect to be a satire article, Newsweek took a step down on the journalistic ladder and published, what they label, a political story accusing President Trump of stealing pancakes from a relative.

Yes, they are trying to diminish Trump’s credibility by accusing him of stealing “flat cakes.”

From Newsweek:

A relative of President Donald Trump has accused the self-proclaimed billionaire of being a pancake thief, having stolen a handful of flat cakes while on vacation at his late mother's former home in Scotland.

A distant cousin of the president, Alice Mackay—related to Trump through his mother's family, the McLeods—said the commander-in-chief is an unpleasant man who has never used any of his wealth to help his mother's local community.

Mackay told Scottish newspaper The National: "I don't like the man at all, he's so unlike his mother and father." She recalled that Mary Anne and Fred Trump were "lovely parents, I don't know what went wrong with him. My mum and dad were second cousins. Every time they were over here they came to ours for dinner."

Mackay recalled one morning when the future president committed two social faux pas in quick succession. "He was here one morning I was busy making pancakes and he had forgotten my husband had died," she said. "He put a few pancakes in [his] pocket and never said 'cheerio' or anything."

How desperate can these liberal outlets be?

Newsweek actually had the nerve to contact The White House for comment, they reported.

Folks on Twitter appeared to be sick and tired of liberal “journalists” doing whatever they can to diminish Trump’s presidency let the “news” outlet hear their thoughts:

I almost don’t know what to think of this, I mean, how is this supposed to be a story worth reporting. Some people thought the Onion put this piece out but maybe this is what we have to expect from leftist “news” outlets.
