Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has failed to persuade Facebook and Twitter to take down a “misleading” video posted by US President Donald Trump. …
The Democrats call it lying:
The American people know that the President has no qualms about lying to them — but it is a shame to see Twitter and Facebook, sources of news for millions, do the same,” Ms Pelosi’s chief of staff Drew Hammill said on Twitter. …
Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone denied Mr Hammill’s claims on Twitter.
“Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?” Mr Stone tweeted.
Mr Hammill reiterated that the video was deceptive and again called for it to be taken down.
Pelosi is right that it is misleading, in a trivial sense. She didn’t rip up the speech at those points in the speech, and the emotional music wasn’t playing when she ripped the speech. Everything that isn’t a complete, literal, and uncontaminated recording is “misleading” — which is just about everything.
But she did rip up the speech, and as we all know it was premeditated. She was cancelling what the President said.
That level of misleading is as nothing compared to what the Democrats and media have been saying about Trump. Pelosi behaved very badly in public and then … tried to pretend she didn’t.
