WaPo tries to fact-check Trump, gets absolutely roasted by their own headline

The Washington Post attempted to fact-check Trump’s Wednesday claim that all of the US’s most dangerous cities are run by Democrats, but ended up spectacularly burning themselves in the process.

Trump has been on the offensive against Democrat-run cities and states that have allowed rampant crime for decades. He claimed on Wednesday that “every one” of  America’s “20 most dangerous” cities “are Democrat run” to prove his point.

The Washington Post challenged Trump’s assertion with the headline: “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.”

I guess the Post thought that no one would actually read past the headline, because the analysis immediately contradicted the premise. The Daily Caller immediately exposed the outrageous contradiction.

The article, however, did not provide a single city run by a Republican in the top 20 most violent cities per capita. According to data WaPo gathered to disprove Trump, 19 of the 20 cities with the most violent crime per 10,000 residents are run by Democrats. The lone city on the per capita list not run by a Democrat is run by an Independent.

“Most of the current mayors of these cities are Democrats,” WaPo admitted. “Two of the mayors of cities with the most reported violent crimes overall, though, are independents and one, the mayor of Jacksonville, Fla., is a Republican. Among the 20 cities with the most violent crime per capita, one isn’t a Democrat: the independent mayor of Springfield, Mo.”

The Washington Post’s motto is “Democracy dies in darkness.” It’s well known that the Post is desperately attempting to keep Americans in the dark, but they could have tried a little harder this time.

This is so funny, I almost laughed out loud. WaPo just shows how ignorant and how biased they are as they attempted to disprove President Trump’s assertion. Turns out all WaPo did was shovel more cow dung on their own heads because PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS RIGHT!

Seldom does President make such statements without having his facts in order. Unlike wapo and other fake news outlets who lie or don’t know or don’t look before they leap into the fray. Even when the fake news outlets are wrong, the refuse to admit it!

Ruth a lovely comment and well said about President Trump. He takes so much crap from the Left when he deserves so much thanks. Too bad there is so much dark money in the Dem. Party and so many tools who will donate even when they are hoodwinked hybRID and friends and do not know where their donations went. Wake up losers. Save America.

That is why it is very difficult to believe anything the papers publish . They are proven wrong all the time and their facts are skewed . You just can’t believe the written word by a newspaper

Our Congressional leader that are supporting these rioters need to be treated as TRAITORS indicted and sent to GITMO for a military tribunal.
This is treason therefor, handled by the military and not federal courts.
Then the President send in the troops round up all the offenders and send them to any other country of their choice that is SOCIALIST.
That’s apparently what they want or give them the choice to live the rest of their lives in prison where the government will provide the with everything they want.

Day by day,the Dems show their true colors and intentions for the future of(OUR) country. Yes,,,,,,,I said our county..They have tried everything to get rid of our president and failed..If president Trump loses in November by way of voter fraud,the people will have to be won over. NO GOVERNMENT WILL BE FORCED UPON THE BRAVE AND THE FREE AMERICAN PEOPLE….

Democrat run Cities are breeding grounds for killers and muggers along with rapists. This is what Democrat have brought to America. Look at which Cities and States are going down the road to Communism with riots and murders.
