Ever since Trump got elected, liberals have been relentless in their efforts to bring him down, even resorting to spreading lies and fake news to get the job done. One of their favorite narratives is to paint Trump as a brown people-hating “racist,” where they claim his crackdown on immigration is stemmed from being a racist A hole. The liberal media was not surprisingly at it again following the hurricane in Puerto Rico 8 months ago that claimed the lives of supposedly 4,645 people, blaming the president for the deaths, as if Trump somehow controls the weather. There’s just one huge hole in their story, and now the liberal geniuses across America are being forced to eat crow…again.
Shortly after hearing the news that Puerto Rico had been stuck by a hurricane, Trump immediately gave the country a whopping $2.2 billion in federal aid, where FEMA and countless other organizations are still on the ground providing assistance. While the Puerto Rican government was working overtime to make Trump look like a jerk, even hiding massive amounts of food in warehouses to make it look like America wasn’t helping out, the media was at the same time spreading fake news about the number of deaths due to the hurricane, falsely claiming that 4,645 had perished.
The lie being perpetrated was so blatant, that even the liberal Washington Post is speaking out, warning people to be “very, very careful” about accepting its claim that 4,645 people died in Puerto Rico. They reported:
There’s a problem: This is not a verified number, unlike body counts in wars. The Harvard study offers only an estimate – a midpoint along a broad range of possibilities. It is not based on death records, only estimates of deaths from people who were interviewed in a survey.
In effect, the researchers took one number – 15 deaths identified from a survey of 3,299 households – and extrapolated that to come up with 4,645 deaths across the island. That number came with a very large caveat, clearly identified in the report, but few news media accounts bothered to explain the nuances.
“Their sampling appears to be well done, but relatively small for their purpose, leading to a large margin of error,” said Roberto Rivera, a professor at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez who co-wrote the study that calculated a range of 605 to 1,039 deaths, the Post reported. “Most reports on the new study have focused on the number 4,645.”
“The Harvard study was taken between September 20 through December 31 — a period that extended weeks past the storm,” Breitbart reported.
Here’s an example of liberal headlines that blamed Trump for the hurricane:
— “Perspectives: Hurricane Maria Tragedy In Puerto Rico Is Trump’s Katrina; FEMA’s Role Is Only Supportive” (Kaiser Health News)
— “San Juan Mayor Calls Trump’s ‘Total Neglect’ Of Puerto Rico A Violation Of Human Rights” (Huffington Post)
— “Puerto Rico will be an enduring stain on Trump’s presidency” (CNN)
— “As new hurricane season starts, remember the 4,645 Puerto Rico deaths” (USA Today)
— “How can the U.S. atone for 4,600 dead in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria?” (Houston Chronicle)
— “On Trump’s watch, the single most deadly natural disaster in modern America” (CNN)
Unreal. 605 to 1,039 deaths is a huge difference from the 4,645 that the liberal media is trying to claim.
Liberals just can’t handle the fact that Trump is successful and accomplishing everything he promised to do, despite their continual temper tantrums and fake news!
Be sure to share this story and help put an end to this blatant lie being told about our President! If liberals don’t like who’s in charge, they can pack their bags and move to Puerto Rico! I heard it’s really lovely there during the hurricane season!
