Donald Trump was in Japan and met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Following tradition, the President and Prime Minister fed some Koi.
CNN edited the video of Trump feeding the fish to try and embarrass the President by fabricating some sort of faux pas, wherein the President boorishly dumped his food for the Koi like an idiot. The CNN headline was “Trump feeds fish, winds up pouring entire box of food into koi pond.”

In reality, this is what happened.
Yep, the President was following the Prime Minister’s lead.
On the same day, Atlantic writer David Frum took to Twitter to comment on the Sutherland Springs Shooting.
News flash: big wig DC journalist doesn’t know that the Lautenberg Amendment (Gun Ban for Individuals Convicted of a Misdemeanor Crime of Domestic Violence — 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(9)) exists.
It’s like the famous post-Vegas CNN video of a bump fire stock showing a rifle with a suppressor, M203 grenade launcher, and no bump fire stock.
And these fucking people want us to trust them.
When they are not lying, they are getting the most basic facts wrong.
What else did we find out?
Devin Patrick Kelley was a prohibited person, but wasn’t caught in NICS because the Air Force didn’t report his conviction.
If that sounds familiar, it is because Dylann Roof, who also shot up a church, got his guns because the FBI dropped the ball on his NICS check too.
The major media outlets who keep clamoring for the government “to do something” seem to overlook the fact that two church shootings were able to happened PRECISELY because of government bureaucratic fuck ups.
So when they are not lying and getting their basic facts wrong, they are cheer-leading for more power to be put into the butter-fingers of bureaucrats who can’t properly execute the power they already have.
And these fuckers want us to trust them.
I think not.
