‘Time’ Reporter Makes Up Fake Trump Quote, Liberal Pals Spread the Fake News


Over the Memorial Day weekend, a columnist for Time fabricated a quote about North Korea that he claimed Trump said and despite later admitting that it was fake, the lie-filled quote went viral after being pushed by his liberal pals.

Before we look at his fake news quote, remember that this incident occurred over the same few days that liberals were criticizing people for passing around what they are claiming is a “fake video” of Nancy Pelosi.

So, while liberals are attacking people for pushing a “fake video” of Pelosi, they have no problem at all pushing around a fake quote supposedly uttered by Trump!

The video in question featured Pelosi slurring and unable to get two words out. But it really isn’t a “fake video,” as much as it is a compilation edited together. So, even as the fake news media continues to call it a “fake video,” it is NOT a fake video.

Typical of the hypocrites on the left, even as they are acting all shocked and bothered by the “fake” Pelosi video, they are pushing a fake quote about Trump.

The fake quote was invented by Time columnist Iran Bremmer.

On Sunday, Bremmer wrote, “President Trump in Tokyo: ‘Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden.'”

Soon all sorts of liberals began tweeting the fake quote thinking it was real. Liberals who pushed the lie included CNN hypocrite Ana Navarro, and extreme leftist California Congressman Ted Lieu.

And then people began confronting Bremmer on the quote.

Ultimately, he admitted it was fake, but claimed that he did it on purpose to prove that people will post any quote — whether it is real or not — because it fits their political ideas.

Bremmer later tried to warn that he made up the quote by tweeting that his fake quote was “ludicrous.”

“This is objectively a completely ludicrous quote,” Bremmer later wrote. “And yet kinda plausible. Especially on twitter, where people automatically support whatever political position they have. That’s the point.”

Amusingly, Bremmer was one of those leftists caterwauling for the removal of that Pelosi video!

The lesson here is that leftists can push fake news if it works against Trump, but no one else can push their ideas if it works against Democrats.

President Trump also slammed Bremmer for his lie:

Finally, Bremmer apologized after President Trump pointed out his lie:
