Washington Post MOCKED for Making False Trump Claim

The Washington Post ran a story refuting President Trump’s claim that most violence occurs in cities run by Democrats.

The problem is the data they used proved President Trump correct.

According to Fox News:

Washington Post correspondent Philip Bump wrote an analysis piece headlined, “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.”

Bump then set out to prove the president wrong, admitting that he isn’t sure what statistic is used for the claim, so he examined “two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent crime and most violent crime per capita.”

When the Post examined the per capita data, none of the 20 most violent cities was run by Republicans.

The per capita data essentially backed up Trump’s claim, while the first set of data also largely proved the president’s point, with the exception of Jacksonville. But the Post felt its data was enough to fact-check Trump anyway.

Twitter responded:

It seems like the mainstream media like to make things easy for President Trump. Bump did give himself an out though writing that Trump would call the article “Fake News” because Bump was pointing out that Trump was only “slightly” wrong.

  1. Perhaps with activists placing a guillotine in front of Jeff Bezos’ home, and the demand that he dismantle Amazon, his Washington Post will be less sympathetic toward the Marxist/DNC foot soldiers. It certainly worked in Seattle with a march on the mayor’s home. CHAZ is gone!
    Too bad Democrats can’t see the death and destruction for citizens and businesses through their power-grabbing glasses. And of course Republicans sit back and wait to see which way the wind is blowing. Certainly they don’t want to take a stand for the Middle Class, or the American Constitution. Exhibit #1 Senator Braun (R) of Indiana and his “support for BLM” for fear Chuck Schumer might be upset with him.
