Fake News: NYT Blames Record Gun Sales On … Trump

posted on May 2, 2017

The odor of fake news continued in The New York Times on Saturday, when editors twisted President Donald Trump’s speech at the 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, Ga.

“You came through for me, and I am going to come through for you,” Trump told NRA members in attendance. “The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end. You have a true friend and champion in the White House.” The president listed accomplishments such as ending Obama’s restrictions on lead ammo, his support for outdoorsmen and his appointment of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. “To the NRA, I can proudly say I will never, ever let you down.”

However, the Times calls such support “pandering.” Under the headline, “Even as President, Donald Trump Panders to the NRA,” the writer even blamed record gun sales on “Mr. Trump’s fear-inducing agenda, which led to greater arms sales among more and more ordinary Americans.”

Question for the Times: Who was repeatedly named “Gun Salesman Of The Year” for the last eight years?
