    Fact check: Dishonest Trump video twists Democrats' quotes

    Nice try....but you've been caught again.....

    Fact check: Dishonest Trump video twists Democrats' quotes to make it sound like they endorsed riots


    Washington (CNN)An egregiously deceptive campaign video posted on Facebook and Twitter by President Donald Trump on Saturday takes quotes from prominent Democrats out of context to wrongly make it seem as if they had encouraged or defended violence. The video, which had more than 53,000 retweets as of Monday afternoon, juxtaposes clips of people rioting and looting with unrelated quotes from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- effectively changing the meaning of each Democrat's remark.


    After showing a clip of a burning vehicle that had been vandalized with the anti-police insult "pig," the video shows Pelosi saying, "I just don't even know why there aren't uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be." Facts First: Pelosi uttered these words two years ago on the subject of Trump's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border. Pelosi noted in June 2018 that the National Association of Evangelicals had testified to Congress that the US refugee resettlement system was the "crown jewel of American humanitarianism."

    She said of the Trump administration: "And in order to do away with that crown jewel, they're doing away with children being with their moms. I just don't even know why there aren't uprisings all over the country. And maybe there will be, when people realize that this is a policy that they defend." The video shows clips of people setting an American flag on fire and toppling a statue, then a clip of Ocasio-Cortez saying, "That is what the word 'radical' really means. ... I've never been offended. And I embrace that term."

    Facts First: Ocasio-Cortez was not talking about violence, flag-burning or statue-toppling when she made these comments on June 5. Rather, she was arguing, in an online video conversation about policing, that "systemic" problems with the police need to be addressed with "systemic" solutions rather than piecemeal reforms like slightly reducing budgets or banning particular tactics like chokeholds.
    "That is what the word radical really means, by the way -- it means 'the root,' getting to the root of problems," she -- and he was speaking about how politicians could use the response to the coronavirus pandemic to try to create a fairer society.

    Common, and truth be told that conservatives lie like hell. Please don't tell me you think they don't lie. Trump and his campaign will do and say anything to make liberals look like asses just so he can get votes and you know that.

    Well, where and when has any Dem condemned things like the baby that was killed and his mother wounded, while sitting in their car? What Dem, from Pelosi down to all these Mayor's in Dem controlled cities condemned the rioting etc? they might say something like...we do not condone the violence....but, we support the protesters. Well Lady the rioters, killers, destroyers are the protesters.

    You know it really is a shame you and your ilk are in plain denial of what kind of POS President we really have. Honestly. Most times times I roll my eyes, I sarcastically laugh, but there are times I'm like WTF? I don't know if it's just to stand beside your peers no matter what this president says or does or if you truly believe in him and his policies. Or your a republican until death type of attitude, I have no idea but I don't know what you and your trump groupies are gonna do when he loses in November. I really don't.
