The media is quick to call out anything they think Trump’s team says is false.
All you have to do is visit any of their so-called “fact-checking” sites to see they spend 24/7 trying to debunk what Trump says.
But they rarely do that for Democrats—especially Joe Biden, who has a history of gaffes and “accidental” false statements.
And here is another instance that won’t pop up on a major liberal site. Because it was said by anti-Trump group “The Lincoln Project.”
This group of Trump-haters watched a video of a Trump talk and apparently were hard of hearing, or perhaps they thought no one would notice this lie:
The anti-Trump Lincoln Project was forced to delete a viral tweet that falsely claimed President Trump “relished” in a convention supporter calling former President Barack Obama a “monkey,” while the video clearly shows the term was not used.
Twitter explodes claiming Trump laughs after an audience member yells “monkey” at the mention of Obama. Others think the man yelled “Spygate”
Another attendee shouts “Sleepy Joe” and the President says “let’s be nice. Biden.”

The Lincoln Project was forced to delete the tweet after it had been spread thousands of times.
But the video clearly proves that nobody said “monkey.” It was an invention of this Trump-hating group.
Referring to a black person with the term monkey (or other similar terms) is a grossly racist slur.
In the past, it was used frequently to denigrate and dehumanize black Americans. For anyone to use it today, it would be very offensive (to everyone).
For the Lincoln Project to recklessly accuse Trump of “relishing” in what could only be considered an ugly slur is pathetic and downright despicable.
Democrats desperately try to accuse Trump of racism. They ignore the fact that Trump’s leadership has helped millions of black Americans climb out of poverty.
He has championed Opportunity Zones, school choice, and prison reform. All of which has helped turn around the lives of many black Americans.
Yet, to this day, Democrats and Trump-hating “Republicans” keep pushing this tired and unprovable lie.
That could explain why the media didn’t call out the Lincoln Project for this slander.
Had it been a pro-Trump group accusing Biden of “relishing” in a slur, it would have been debunked in a heartbeat.
I guess we are the only ones that have the courage to call them out on it?
- Anti-Trump Lincoln Project spread the lie that Trump laughed at a racist slur against Obama.
- The group was forced to delete the tweet when video proved nobody said “monkey.”
- Most of the mainstream media has refused to “fact-check” this group because they oppose the president.
