On the night President Trump was elected, old-fashioned conservative Ben Shapiro of Daily Wire wasn’t ready to get on the Trump Train.
Shapiro lamented the POTUS-elect’s style, which he considered over-the-top. “But,” he then admitted on a podcast, “maybe Trump is the only guy who could have pulled this off.”
Flash-forward over a year later, and Shapiro is one of the most loyal defenders of a successful Trump on 90% of policy moves.
Over the weekend, Shapiro’s web magazine posted striking evidence of Senator Dick Durban’s opportunistic false-hoods.
Durbin has a history of mis-quoting others to make them look bad, as he did when taking Trump’s profanity out-of-context and feeding the “S***hole” controversy to an eager liberal media.
More from the ‘Wire:
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) accused President Donald Trump Friday of referring to African countries as “s***holes” during a meeting that they both attended on Thursday.
Durbin told reporters that what Trump said was “hate-filled, vile and racist,” adding that “the most disheartening thing to me is my belief that that was the first time words that hateful had been spoken in the Oval Office of the White House.”
There’s just one problem with Durbin’s claims: He has a history of making up statements from private White House meetings.
In 2013, Politico reported “In a ‘negotiation’ meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told [President Barack Obama]: ‘I cannot even stand to look at you,’” Durbin wrote in a post on his Facebook page over the weekend.”
“However, both the White House and the House speaker’s office denied Durbin’s account of events. Asked about the post in the White House daily briefing, press secretary Jay Carney said he checked with a participant of the meeting in question. “I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting and it did not happen,” Carney said.”
There you have it folks. No need to worry about the President going around degrading Haitians or people from Africa. He didn’t.
How do we know? Because even Obama admits Dick Durbin is a liar.
