It didn’t take long for Democrats to run with the apparently fake news story that President Donald Trump wanted to mobilize the National Guard to round-up illegal aliens.
The Associated Press broke the story on Friday, and the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer quickly called the report “100 percent false.”

DHS confirms that the memo reported by AP did exist; but they said it was “never seriously considered” https://t.co/4kB6rLfyCX

It’s astounding to think that media would be this careless, the day after Trump called them out for being very fake news the night before in heated press conference.
Nonetheless, Sen. Dick Durbin proved why the media does it and ran like the wind with the “story.”

And he was far from the only one.
Hours after the White House categorically denid the claim, news outlets and prominent liberals were pushing the story.

This clearly shows, when news fits the agenda, Democrats don’t wait for the facts.
Ask Nancy Pelosi who believed Gen. Mike Flynn called himself a scapegoat.
But in the fight for the minds of the American public, conservatives called out the AP story as nonsense from the start.
No evidence Trump weighed any of this. Fake news. https://t.co/JRtUkconxn

No link to factual data. This seems to me to be irresponsible journalism. https://t.co/ZsyztMQo20
