Legal Insurrection: Earlier this week, a couple of social media hoaxes attempting to tie President Trump to the death of George Floyd went viral. The intent is to put a good crisis to good use, and “good use” for today’s Democrats/left always means damaging Trump.
For the left, it’s always Orange Man Bad, and this attempt to tie both the actual George Floyd incident and the resulting riots to Trump is worth noting.
In these cases, the idea was to take the alarming death of George Floyd while in the custody of police in Democrat-run Minneapolis and to find some way, any way, to weaponize it against Trump.
During the same brief time period, quickly eclipsed by the resulting protests cum riots, two false stories were deployed on social media and went viral. Both attempted to tie Trump to, even implicate him in, George Floyd’s death.
The problem? That is not the officer in question in the “Make White’s Great Again” hat, and it was, of all outlets, HuffPo that pointed out the hoax.
