President Trump is suing an NBC for allowing a CLEARLY doctored video to run from the Biden campaign.
What the Biden campaign did was they took two sentences from two different speeches and spliced together to create an extremely misleading ad.
Take a look at the ad:
I'll admit, this is definitely a very shady and dishonest way to put together a political ad.
Jenna Ellis, who is Senior Legal Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. said,
“It is disappointing that WJFW-NBC would knowingly continue to broadcast this blatantly false ad and perpetrate falsehoods on the American people, even after the Trump campaign provided proof in good faith of the ad’s falsity. We fully expected the station would recognize their error and immediately cease under their FCC obligations. The Trump campaign is now left with no other option than to use the force of law to ensure these false and defamatory ads cease. Defamation law helps ensure that news outlets are accountable to viewers, who should be able trust the accuracy and truth of content aired to the public.”
The Priorities USA ad took different audio clips from President Trump and spliced them together, deceptively manipulating them into an entirely new sentence and adding misleading subtitles to create a statement the President never uttered: “The coronavirus, this is their new hoax.”
As is clear from his full remarks, President Trump was referring to the Democrats’ politicization of the coronavirus crisis and likening it to their reaction to the Mueller Russia hoax and the sham impeachment. He has never said that the virus itself was a hoax.
Numerous popular fact checkers and news reporters have declared the mischaracterization of the President’s remarks to be false.
If Trump wins the lawsuit, NBC will have to pay up millions of dollars, but what will happen to the Biden campaign?
