Debunking the Vicious False Narratives against Donald Trump

By now, every voter knows that the mainstream media is in the pocket of Hillary Clinton but many do not know the extent of the malpractice in journalism today. The MSM has successfully embedded in the minds of the voters false narratives that need to be exposed out of just plain common decency. The three I will address in this piece are the charges that Trump mocked a disabled reporter; that he questioned the Mexican American's legitimacy to handle his court case because of his race, and that he mocked a Gold Star family. There are many more.

A recent Clinton ad had a woman who claimed she's a Republican but was voting for Hillary because she has an autistic son and Trump had made fun of a disabled reporter. FALSE

Trump had made a statement that there were people cheering on the rooftops in New Jersey after 9/11. The Washington Post called this claim a lie forgetting that one of its own reporters, Serge Kovaleski, had written an earlier piece on September 18, 2001 confirming Trump's claim. When the reporter, who has arthrogryposis, which locks his wrists in place, actually preventing movement, was interviewed he said he had no recall about that incident. Trump who had never met Mr. Kovaleski mocked his denial not the reporter's disability by waving his arms. He was demonstrating a person being flustered by the truth and had made the exact same gestures mocking a general, a bank president and even Ted Cruz, none of whom are disabled. But the media published still shots of Trump's imitation side by side with Mr. Kovaleski's hand held in same position to push the lying narrative further. The videos confirming Trump's fluster imitations were posted as comments on the WAPO website but they were deleted. They can, however, be viewed on this website: https://www.catholics4trump.com/tag/mocking-the-disabled/

Donald Trump has never mocked the disabled and has used his wealth and private plane to transport those in emergency medical need. Google these incidents and compare his generosity with the lie that Hillary told at the Dem. Convention about helping a disabled girl get to school in New Bedford, Mass. Her blatant lie was exposed by the mayor at the time who said it couldn't be true: "It's not true," former Mayor Jack Markey told the Boston Herald . "I'm even a Democrat, but the truth is the truth."

Then we have the MSM trash down about 'racist' Trump denigrating the Mexican American judge scheduled to hear his court case. In an interview, Mr. Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel had "an absolute conflict" in presiding over the litigation of civil fraud lawsuits against Trump University given that he was "of Mexican heritage" and a member of a Latino lawyers' association. Well, of course it was.

The previous year, the Hispanic Lawyers Association that Trump referred to had issued a petition to boycott all the Trump businesses because of his immigration statements. Trump also alleged that Judge Curiel was a former colleague and friend of one of the Trump University plaintiffs' lawyers. The judge and the lawyer had once worked together as federal prosecutors. That Judge Curiel should have recused himself from the case was a no-brainer but not to an MSM determined to bring Trump down any way it could. If someone had brought charges against you, the reader, in court and the judge set to preside over your fate had definite connections to the plaintiff wouldn't you object as Trump did? Of course you would but the MSM would never pass up a chance to further stereotype Trump as a racist even though it totally ignores what the Clinton Foundation did to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010.

Debra Heine in PJ Media writes, "Sandy Rios of American Family Radio interviewed former Haitian Senate President Bernard Sansaricq and the enraged Haitian had nothing good to say about the Clintons. He angrily claimed that they brought their "pay to play" politics to Haiti at the expense of the Haitian people. Sansaricq said that the Clinton Foundation received 14.3 billion dollars in donation money to help with the relief effort. President Obama and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon put the Clinton Foundation in charge of the reconstruction, but Haiti has seen no help. The money all went to friends of Bill Clinton."

I ask you, who are the real racists here; a man who employs thousands of minorities paying good wages or a woman who is lining her pockets on the backs of the poor?

Then the Democrats brought a Gold Star father Khizr Khan to speak at their convention. At the convention, Mr. Khan, held up the Constitution and said that what Trump said about banning Muslims from entering the country was unconstitutional. He then went on say that his son, Captain Humayun Khan, who died in combat in 2004 was a brave American who would never be allowed here if Trump was president. His condemnation of Trump brought huge applause from the convention floor in spite of the fact that what he said was sheer rhetoric. The constitution has nothing to say about immigration bans and Congress can indeed set standards and restrictions depending on national security needs.

But what did Donald Trump actually say? Did he denigrate Captain Khan's sacrifice or deny that he died a hero? No. What he actually said was


"If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me, but plenty of people have written that she was extremely quiet, and it looked like she had nothing to say."

His comment, though ill advised, about Mrs. Khan was a slap at Sharia Law which commits the real war on women.

What Trump has been railing about is illegal immigration and terrorist Islamic Jihadists and the need to properly vet those seeking entrance, an issue the Democrats and Mr. Khan refused to address at the convention. Seems Mr. Khan deleted his law firm's website after reports uncovered his background.

Breitbart's Aaron Klein wrote:,


"Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States—and has deep ties to the "Clinton Cash" narrative through the Clinton Foundation"

Not much of a surprise to those of us who avoid the lame stream press but hopefully through social media we can share the truth that's out there.
