Democrats often benefit from fake news, but they have also sought to benefit from fake news of their own making. Republicans have slammed recent videos that falsified evidence in the recent Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, revealing scenes that were manipulated in their favor.
One selective video cut Trump’s audio, while another displayed a tweet that was completely fabricated. One video clip even used a person saying “bring the calvary” as an attempt to show people wanting to “bring the cavalry” in the sense of violence. The actual phrase was a religious reference, with someone setting up a large cross related the crucifixion at Calvary at Trump’s event.
For a team accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection, Democrats were putting forth a strong case for their own incitement. In fact, Trump’s legal team’s best evidence was simply playing similar videos from progressive political leaders inciting violence in ways much stronger than Trump was accused of on January 6.
We may live in a fake news culture, but that doesn’t mean Democrats can create fake videos to impeach Trump.
Check out the worst of Democrats lies and manipulated evidence they tried to present as facts at former President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
