In 2015, Ayman Mohyeldin accused Chris Kyle, the inspiration for the movie American Sniper, of going on “killing sprees” while carrying out his duties as a Navy Seal in Iraq.
Fast forward to the present, and we have this same Mohyeldin, on MSNBC’s Velshi show, as a guest-host giving aid and comfort to Washington Post investigative reporter, Carol Leonnig.
Leonnig, who has written two very anti-Trump books with fellow Post reporter Philip Rucker, felt compelled to call out Trump’s “misinformation” in Trump’s Truth Social post calling on supporters, in the context of his possibly imminent arrest, to “Protest. Take back our nation.”
Leonnig distorted the facts and spun Trump’s words into something they were not, by saying that Trump was “suggesting that jack-booted thugs are coming for him on Tuesday, and people will have to stop this from happening.” But, as we all know, that is not what Trump was saying at all.
In reality, Trump was trying to gin up outrage at a Manhattan Democrat district attorney’s decision to arrest a former president of the United States for political reasons.
It appears that Leonnig, along with Mohyeldin, are attempting to use their platforms to push a false narrative against Trump.
Furthermore, Leonnig’s cockeyed “correction” of Trump was supported in part by the likes of Verizon, Chase, Constant Contact, Wayfair, and Subway.
Even if you don’t like Trump you have to admit that he has been a huge target for the left. The truth is, Trump has a right to be outraged.
President Trump has been treated unfairly and unjustly since his election. The corruption in the Democratic Party has been exposed, from the Russia hoax to the Ukraine scandal, and yet the media continues to turn a blind eye. The liberal-biased reporters, like Leonnig and Mohyeldin, have their own agenda and it doesn’t involve reporting facts without bias.
For a bunch of people who hate Trump, they certainly strive to prove him right. Trump said that the media was the enemy of the people and biased reports constantly flaring up, you have to at least agree that we need reporters who just stick to the facts.
