@RichardGrenell’s #FakeNews



Grenell “Joins” #FakeNews

On Wednesday morning, I awoke to a burgeoning controversy on Twitter. While controversies on Twitter are roughly as common as Tweets on Twitter, this one was more troubling.  In this case, former Ambassador Richard “Ric” Grenell was electioneering on behalf of Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Trump-endorsed candidate for the US Senate seat in Pennsylvania.  Oz is known to be a RINO, let’s face it, and in the race, the two other serious candidates are Dave McCormick, another probable deep-state goon, and a genuine, hard-working, authentic woman named Kathy Barnette.  A recent poll in the state by the Trafalgar Group showed Barnette rapidly closing on Dr. Oz, who has the advantage of what I consider a sorely misguided Trump endorsement.  Oz has infamously advocated for gender transitioning of minors, and all sorts of leftist garbage.  It’s a complete mystery to me (and many Pennsylvanians) why Trump would endorse this dirtbag. Nevertheless, seeing that Kathy Barnette is fast-closing on Dr. Oz with the primary election only one week away, Grenell cherry-picked a tweet and tried to use it to defame Barnette. Here’s Grenell’s tweet(screen capture here in case deleted):

Obviously, either Grenell didn’t bother to look further, or he intended to mislead those reading his tweets. Grenell is a sophisticated man, and while there’s some slight possibility it was just laziness, I rather doubt it. With this tweet, Grenell has added himself to my list of snakes.

Here’s what you find when you bother to dig just a little more deeply. When you go to look at Barnette’s actual tweet, you see she’s using the hashtags to call attention to a video on her Facebook page, not to promote the hashtags:

When you go to that tweet, you find her actual Facebook video:

If you follow the link to the video, you quickly realize that Kathy was mournfully criticizing #BLM and #DefundThePolice.

Why did Ric Grenell decide to defame Kathy Barnette?  Is it because he supports Dr. Oz?  Apparently.  In this case, he was either too lazy to discover the truth, or too dishonest to show you the truth.  Either way, it speaks ill of him.  Kathy Barnette is a fantastic candidate for the US Senate, and President Trump should have endorsed her rather than Dr. Oz.  We’ll never know why, but if people as dishonest as Ric Grenell appears to have been in this case are bending President Trump’s ear on the matter, we can guess why he might think Oz the better candidate.

Pennsylvania, you have the first chance in a long time to put a real America-First candidate in the US Senate.  Kathy Barnette is that candidate.  Ric Grenell has rightly earned the scorn of many on Twitter for this lazy or dishonest tweet.  The disappointment is breath-taking.  Conservatives are furious.  He deserves it.  He should immediately correct the record, apologize to Kathy Barnette, and stop commenting further on this race.  It’s despicable, and many of us, myself included, had thought Grenell was better than this.

Yeah, not so much.

Editor’s Note: The reason the RINOs are getting nervous and resorting to these tactics is this poll from Trafalgar Group:
