It looks like Trump might have pressured NBC News to issue a correction on a BS tweet they posted, with his own tweet this morning.
Here’s the BS they tweeted on Friday:
WATCH: President Trump says "Robert E. Lee was a great general" during Ohio rally, calling the Confederate leader "incredible." pic.twitter.com/HhsLI1Mk05— NBC News (@NBCNews) October 13, 2018
Now, we went on at length about why it’s wrong, and you can read that here, but it suffices to say that the video is cut off before Trump can make his point. And it’s done deceptively in order to make him look like he’s praising the confederacy.
Then a WHOLE DAY PASSES.
Then this morning Trump tweets this:
NBC News has totally and purposely changed the point and meaning of my story about General Robert E Lee and General Ulysses Grant. Was actually a shoutout to warrior Grant and the great state in which he was born. As usual, dishonest reporting. Even mainstream media embarrassed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2018
AND then after a few hours, they decide to issue a half-hearted correction:
CORRECTION: An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as "incredible" at a rally in Ohio. It was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, not Gen. Robert E. Lee. An attached video clip lacked the full context for Trump's remark. Here is the full clip. pic.twitter.com/NZHj3Q2dHL

So they LIED about the story and then they correct a tiny portion of it. Amazing. And it takes them a whole two days to do it! LOL!!
