Mainstream Media Attempts to Undermine Trump and Mark Meadows Relationship with New ‘Fake News’ Angle

The mainstream media has no shame. In the latest attempt to paint Donald Trump as a villain, the media has taken a short excerpt from former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’s new book to falsely claim Trump had covid during the first presidential debate against Joe Biden.

Trump quickly dismissed the claim as fake news in a short statement through his Save America PAC.

“The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News. In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate,” Trump said on Wednesday.

The Guardian claimed:

Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.”

Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.

Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.

Trump announced he had Covid on 2 October. The White House said he announced that result within an hour of receiving it. He went to hospital later that day.

However, Meadows also quickly refuted claims that Trump had Covid-19 during the debate noting that the positive test results Trump received were due to a false positive and was repeatedly re-tested to ensure he did not have the virus.

The Hill reports:

In an interview on Newsmax, anchor Rob Schmitt referred to a brief statement the former president on Wednesday calling the positive test “fake news.”

“What is the story?” Schmitt asked Meadows.

“Well, the president’s right, it’s fake news. If you actually read the book — the context of it — that story outlined a false positive,” the former chief of staff said on Newsmax.

“Literally had a test, had two other tests after that that showed that he didn’t have Covid during the debate, and yet the way that the media wants to spin it is certainly to be as negative about Donald Trump as they possibly can while giving Joe Biden a pass,” he added.

Just goes to show that the media hasn’t given up on its relentless witch hunt against Donald Trump.

We all know there is no honor, or conscience among crooks, liars, thieves, or some libtard politicians.

We all need to start working together. Two (or more) can play the same game. What we all need to do is phone, email, and write letters to ALL of the fake media and lambaste them for their anti-American views, pro-China, and TDS symptoms of a serious disease. Don’t waste any more time. Get it done. Let the entire United States know we are not putting up with fake news anymore. Hopefully, it comes to all those so-called fake journalists being arrested and their news stations being dismantled permanently. This has to be done, people. You can see how they get worse and worse. Take them down now before this becomes too late.

The “highly deranged” Left makes up lies like they take breaths. No one should ever believe them! If anyone of their own supporters is having doubts abt that political party, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THOSE DOUBTS ARE 100% TRUE AND JUMP THE FENCE NOW TO RID Yourself OF A DOPPLEGANGER OF A PARTY!

Every sane American now KNOWS FOR SURE THAT THERE IS NOTHING “GOOD” ABOUT A DEMOCRAT! That party is slipping rapidly down a slippery slope into an abyss of self righteous ignorance BECAUSE IT REFUSES TO LIVE IN REALITY AND INSTEAD CREATES ITS OWN FANTASIES! It DESTROYS EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES!!

Until the Dems wake up to how they are destroying their very own political party, Americans are looking to replace each non functioning democrat in office with an ever present “AMERICA FIRST” GOP MEMBER — NOT A RINO, because they are being now seen as MORE DEMONRAT THAN CONSERVATIVE!

As long as our President Trump is even close to running for President again, we will have some LYING, SCHEMING , IGNORANT AS A HORSE’S ASS DEMOCRAT SOMEWHERE, wetting themselves because they KNOW their world will crash down around them if DJT is President again — AND — DJT WLL BE PRESIDENT OF THIS UNITED STATES AGAIN!

They are so corrupt, and yet their word seems to be the most honored..If they stuck to reporting the news instead of trying to Make it, we might have more respect for them.

Time magazine article in Jan. 2021, title “The Secret Bipartisan Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.
From that article;
“a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes… informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans…”
“a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”
The author of that article was lauding the efforts and the results without realizing he was explaining how the 2020 election was subverted. “an alliance between Left wing activists and business titans” describes the collusion between the wealthy far left-think the ilk of Soros and Zuckerberg-and the corporate masters who control Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who want the high profits and the lower wages they get from immigrants.
Read the words “to influence perceptions” “steer media coverage” and “control the flow of information” all of which can only be accomplished by complicit broadcast, print and social media outlets deciding what information average Americans are allowed to see. Think the editing of most of Trump’s speeches, as at Charlottesville, designed to present an image of him as racist. Think of how those media outlets portrayed Biden for the months he remained hidden away, and their refusal to report on the investigation of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“change rules and laws” was Governors and Mayors using the cover of Covid, with the assistance of liberal courts, to ignore LAWS passed by state legislators and change the how, when and where voters were allowed to vote.
This process worked in 2020 and mainstream’s misrepresentation of what Meadows wrote shows that they are already gearing up to repeat their success. Do not let them fool you, double and triple check EVERYTHING they tell you.
