Since Sunday, the liberal media have been having a Chernobyl level meltdown over an internet video of seemingly unknown origin that used a violent movie scene to depict President Trump killing political opponents and media outlets. Despite the fact that there was no apparent connection to the President, and his Press Secretary says he didn’t even see it, NBC Nightly News tried desperately to tie it to him in some way.
While the report couldn’t show any evidence that Trump was involved in the production or promotion of the video, anchor Lester Holt began the segment by declaring “the White House is trying to distance the President from a disturbing video showing a likeness of him violently attacking his political opponents and the news media.”
Um, you’re the ones trying to pin it on him.
At the start of the report, chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson told viewers:
It's a video so violent, we can only show a few seconds of it. President Trump's face superimposed on to a shooter's body inside what's described as the “church of fake news.” In a graphic scene, he shoots, stabs, bludgeons, and, in one instance, lights on fire depictions of his political opponents, like Bernier Sanders and Hillary Clinton, and news organizations like The Washington Post and NBC News.
She would go on to skeptically say “The Trump campaign says it did not produce the video, which appears to be based off the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service.”
