Poland’s President blasts CNN for fake news!


CNN has just been slammed for fake news again – this time by the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda.

All day Thursday, anti-Trump liberal media promoted a false story claiming that Poland’s First Lady snubbed President Trump, refusing to shake hands with him, and they used edited video footage to push the story. CNN, Newsweek, Washington Post, Bloomberg and Hollywood Reporter were just some of the media outlets who pushed the false narrative.

Now unedited video – and a hot response from Poland’s President – has come forth to set the record straight.

“Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit. Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS,” Duda tweeted.

He then re-tweeted a video, showing the full footage of the entire handshake scene. As Trump and Duda were shaking hands, Polish First Lady Agata Duda moved to go shake hands with US First Lady Melania Trump. Her eyes were clearly on Melania alone as she moved towad her, never seeing President Trump’s hand extended as she passed him.

After greeting Melania, Mrs. Duda then turned to shake hands with President Trump, and the Polish President shook hands with Melania.


CNN’s Chris Cillizza had blasted out an insulting Twitter post earlier Thursday, with a two-second video clip of the moment Poland’s First Lady reached past Trump to shake hands with Melania, making it appear that she did not ever shake hands with Trump.

He later tweeted, “I think there probably wasn’t an intent. I think Trump was out of her line of sight.” However, his edited video had already been retweeted hundreds of times.

Newsweek perpectuated the story even further, tweeting, “Watch Donald Trump’s handshake get rejected by the Polish first lady.” Newsweek’s Twitter comment is then linked to a story that includes an edited, spliced video, where the handshake between President Trump and Poland’s First Lady is entirely cut out.

Below is the EDITED VIDEO that Newsweek promoted, with the handshake SPLICED OUT:
