Rep. Ted Lieu, along with several media outlets pushed out a quote by President Trump that had liberals screaming impeachment. Nothing new about that, but the real issue with the quote? It was completely fabricated.
Journalist Ian Bremmer, who has now deleted the quote tweet, attributed President Trump with saying that Kim Jon Un is “smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden.”
Lieu and other liberals shared the tweet all over their own timelines, but when it was revealed that the quote was incorrect, shrugged it off and refused to apologize for spreading lies.

The journalist who faked the quote doesn’t care either, after deleting it, shrugged it off and said that was the whole point.
Irresponsible journalism. No wonder people don’t trust the media anymore.
