Fake News: Journalists Invent ‘Awkward’ Handshake Snub of Trump

303 views

[See NewsBusters for more.] In the latest example of fake news, journalists on Thursday hyperventilated about a dramatic snub of Donald Trump by Poland’s first lady. Agata Kornhauser-Duda, it seemed, refused to shake the hand of the President. Except, that’s not what happened. Mere seconds after shaking Melania Trump’s hand, Kornhauser-Duda and the President shared a warm embrace. You wouldn’t know that from the coverage. Newsweek opted for this all-caps, blaring headline: “WATCH DONALD TRUMP HANDSHAKE REJECTED BY POLISH FIRST LADY IN HILARIOUSLY AWKWARD EXCHANGE.” Like it was grainy Bigfoot footage, the website even slowed down a shortened version of the footage to showcase the fake snub.
