Breitbart: fake news back then, fake news today

Posted by | February 9, 2017 08:30 | Filed under: Media/Show Business News Behaving Badly

Remember that time Breitbart News smeared Shirley Sherrod with selectively edited video footage? That didn’t go so well, and destroyed the site’s credibility.

And they have failed to learn the lessons of the past. The propagandistic prevarication site…

… has posted a lengthy piece attacking Nordstrom, the luxury retailer that drew the president’s ire this week after announcing it would no longer sell Ivanka Trump’s clothing line.

The piece, which alleges that Nordstrom really is stopping sales of Trump’s clothing due to political reasons, falsely claims that President Trump’s tweet attacking the retailer on Wednesday wreaked havoc on the company’s share price.

“In response to Trump’s tweet — and the ongoing boycott of Nordstrom’s for the company’s political decision to cut Ivanka Trump’s line — Nordstrom’s stock tumbled on Wednesday,” the report claims.

Although there was a brief dip on Nordstrom shares on Wednesday, the company’s stock actually closed up by 4 percent on the day, as shares quickly recovered from Trump’s purportedly devastating tweet.

    It astounds me that trump can claim that Nordstrom’s decision had anything to do with him. They didn’t get to be a successful department store by keeping crap merchandise that doesn’t sell in stock. This was purely a business decision, and as usual trump decides it’s all about him. It’s not. It never is.

    What happened to that table with piles of blank paper where rump told us that this proves his is divested from his companies? And didn’t poor, mistreated Ivanka also claim to put someone else in charge of her clothing line?

    Ivanka Trump is no more than the middleman for Chinese made goods. The Wal-Mart of fifth avenue if you will. made goods. The Wal-Mart of fifth avenue if you will.

    Nordstrom employees more than 72k Americans while Ivanka’s crap is made in China by people earning almost nothing…(like her dad’s sh!t)

    Still think Trump is for the American worker … ?
