Anti-Trump media makes up fake story about overfeeding fish at Japanese koi pond
By Brian Flood
Fox News


http://a57.foxnews.com/images.foxnews.com/content/fox-news/entertainment/2017/11/06/anti-trump-media-makes-up-fake-story-about-overfeeding-fish-at-japanese-koi-pond/_jcr_content/par/featured_image/media-0.img.jpg/931/524/1509976508767.jpg

President Trump and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe carried on an old tradition of feeding carp at a Koi pond at Alaska Palace in Tokyo when CNN and the rest of the mainstream media decided to twist the narrative to make Trump appear like a buffoon.

Liberal network CNN ran a ridiculous headline, “Trump feeds fish, winds up pouring entire box of food into Koi pond,” complete with a misleading tweet from reporter Veronica Rocha that only shows the Trump dumping the entire box of food. Her footage is conveniently edited to skip Abe doing the same thing.

IN fact, Abe dumped his entire box of fish food into the pond and Trump followed while the Prime Minister of Japan smiled. However, the anti-Trump media has been cropping the video to only show Trump’s actions.


<snip for examples of tweets>

Bloomberg White House correspondent Justin Sink tweeted that Trump and Abe were “spooning fish food into the pond” when Trump “decided to just dump the whole box in for the fish.” The problem with the attempt to paint Trump as an animal-abusing, lazy America is that Japan's Prime Minister did the exact same thing seconds before.

BuzzFeed News ran a story headlined, “This photo of Trump dumping his carp food in a pond in japan has become a huge meme,” and embedded a series of Japanese tweets mocking the president. The Guardian even ran a story about the dangers of overfeeding fish.

“White House reporters, keen perhaps to pick up on a Trump gaffe, captured the moment when he upended his box on their smartphones and tweeted evidence of his questionable grasp of fish keeping,” The Guardian wrote. “Some speculated that a poor palace employee would be dispatched to the scene to clean up the mess as soon as the two leaders disappeared inside.”

Foreign dignitaries have been feeding the fish in the koi pond for years, but Trump did not lose patience, despite what the media wants the narrative to be. He was literally emulating Abe with his actions.

One Twitter user wrote, “Abe is basically watching in polite rage-horror as the epic orange buffoon tries to kill his fish,” but she clearly didn’t see the entire video, while the New York Daily News said, “The former New York City real estate tycoon got a little heavy handed while feeding koi.”

You lefties get it yet?

This kind of crap media-bias against the "right", which has been going on for decades, is why you have president Trump.

And now he lives rent-free in your heads day-in and day-out. :biglaugh:

Ahhh, such sweet nectar...

Keep it up media. Keep giving Trump reasons to tweet how you are skewing events. It only helps his reelection prospects.

Morons.

Two things.

First, If these are the very large Japanese Koi and it's a pond of a dozen or more those two boxes wouldn't be enough to overfeed them to the point of harm.

Second, as far as the MSM goes doesn't have to be the truth, as long as it makes Trump look bad it's all that matters(in their minds that is).

They will reach for anything that they can because they are petty and mentally ill.

Hmm, this reminds me of the infamous Dan Quayle's alleged misspelling of "potato" which was actually spelled wrong on the flash card that he was holding up to the kid.

Quayle thought that he had spelled it wrong all along assuming that the flash card was correct.

Yet the media doctored/edited the video and pictures to omit the flash card.

Since the Left has made virtue signaling akin to godliness, they will even pretend to be the sanctimonious protectors of fish they know nothing about on the other side of the world. And, of course, any chance they can get to portray Trump in a way that justifies their obsessive hatred of him...

When I was stationed in Okinawa we had a small 'Koi Pond' behind our little complex(it's probably still there). A couple of us would take turns feeding the things. When I left the 'caretaker' would buy bags of puppy chow. The loved the stuff. Some of them where rather old by this point and where the size of lake trout (or bigger) easily in the range of 15-20 pounds and 18+ inches in length. So yeah, it's not far fetched what so ever. Koi are essentially prettier, longer lived carp/Goldfish. You get some of the Japanese Koi(the real stuff) and they can literally be passed from one generation to the next. Some of the suckers living 50+ years. The idea that Trump over fed them is pure B.S. Do people honestly think the care takers would give people any amount which could cause the fish harm? yeah right...
