And of course the liberal media made fool of themselves happily running the fake news without fact checking.
In a hilarious act of foolishness, a senior staffer of Democrat Pramila Jayapal tweeted a misleading video smearing President Trump, only to be called out by a Tweeter user.
The Washington Free Beacon reported what really happened:
“An aide to Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.) tweeted a misleading video on Friday of President Donald Trump seeming to ignore a wheelchair-bound child.
Ansel Herz, the deputy communications director for Jayapal, tweeted out a video which appeared to show the president ignoring a youngster in a wheelchair reaching up to try and touch Trump’s hand or shake it.
The clip came from a statement on health care Trump delivered on Monday, amid the Senate’s haggling over their repeal-and-replace bill for Obamacare.
“If you’re disgusted by this, follow my boss: @RepJayapal. People call her ‘the anti-Trump,'” Herz wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Full context of the video reveals that Trump did greet the child in a different segment. Twitter user Borne.Gisborne tweeted out stills from the video clearly showing Trump kneeling down to greet the child.

This did not stop the video from being picked up by popular liberal voices, including GQ correspondent Keith Olbermann and author J.K. Rowling. Rowling’s tweet of the video had been retweeted more than 48,000 times as of Friday afternoon.”
Do you think Pramila Jayapal was behind this?
