In a video posted July 20 on Donald Trump's official facebook page, Lara Trump appeared, saying, "I just want to remind you, if you're exhausted of all the fake news out there, remember, you can tune in right here on our facebook page every week". She also claims Trump's newly-announced attack on legal immigration will "raise wages, decrease poverty, and save the taxpayers billions".
McEnany signed off with the catchphrase "And that is the real news" ― a jab at the traditional news media, which Trump has decried as "fake". She left the network this weekend, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News, asking to leave in order to pursue another opportunity. The presentation ends with McEnany saying, "And that is the real news". During the video, McEnany is seen in front of Trump's presidential campaign logo, according to The Hill. And, in the last six months of Obama's presidency, the economy generated more jobs than the first six months of Trump's presidency.
So that's the sort of stuff that McEnany says in her role as paid RNC Trump propagandist.
Last week, Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, presented a "real news" video Donald Trumps president's Facebook page. Presumably that means they're planning to do clips more frequently, as McEnany wouldn't have quit a regular CNN gig just to do 90-second spots once a week on Trump's Facebook page.
"President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction", McEnany said.
Swiss chainsaw attacker still on the run
The attack began in an insurance office, Sticher said, and a Volkswagen van that belongs to Wrousis has been found. Authorities say Wrousis, a client of health insurer CSS, targeted the agency, although a motive remains unclear.
My hunch is that it's a byproduct of Trump's complaints about "fake news". "Trump is truly a post-partisan president".
The Trump team has created the outlet as a means of communicating its spin on news directly with Americans, but has been likened to totalitarian propaganda by critics.
Former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul tweeted: "Wow".
"This is what Trump wants the news to be like".
