It won’t come as any surprise to you that people associated with the Black Lives Matter organization have been trying to sue Donald Trump (yes, still, even after he was out of office). And it won’t come as any surprise to you that you haven’t heard about any outcomes to those cases that were in Trump’s favor.
Which is why you haven’t tended to hear about these court cases after they were first filed. The mainstream media only wants you to remember the accusations, not that the accusations were found false.
Take, for example, the accusations that Trump ordered tear gas used against protesters in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C. so that he could walk across the street from the White House to take a photo holding a Bible in front of St. John’s Church. You heard about the accusations, but you’re unlikely to hear about the outcome of the court case in the mainstream media. Jack Phillips gives us the details of that outcome:
A federal judge on Monday ruled that Black Lives Matter protesters cannot sue former President Donald Trump, former Attorney General William Barr, and other Trump administration officials for dispersing a crowd of demonstrators and agitators at Washington D.C.’s Lafayette Square last summer.
Judge Dabney L. Friedrich, an appointee of Trump, however, allowed Black Lives Matter’s case to proceed against D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department. As Friedrich dismissed the majority of the cases, she noted that access to Lafayette Square has been continually restricted for more than a year after the unrest.
“To this day, over a year after the events of June 1, Lafayette Square remains subject to heightened restrictions that periodically limit protesters’ access to the Square,” Friedrich wrote […].”
Why did the judge rule this way? Because Trump and his administration didn’t order the use of tear gas and such measures to disperse protesters. The case against the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department is being allowed to continue because they were the ones who ordered the use of teargas.
In other words, once again, Trump was accused and blamed for something that he had nothing to do with. But that misrepresentation isn’t anything out of the ordinary for the mainstream media, is it?
