Multiple mainstream journalists spread fake news based on a doctored video to suggest that French President Emmanuel Macron was so loved on his arrival in French Polynesia that he was completely smothered in garland necklaces.

Turns out the entire thing was a scam based on a hoax video, but many journalists have refused to delete their viral tweets.

“On Monday, Illuminati Reptilien, a French satirical Twitter account known for the creation of doctored video shorts, posted an eight-second video of officials in French Polynesia officials draping the president in traditional garland necklaces,” reports Sputnik. “The final seconds of the video show Macron standing alongside other officials totally covered in flowers from his head down to his knees.”

Despite the fact that the video was a total hoax, it was amplified and reported as serious news by over a dozen journalists.

Frida Ghitis, a CNN and Washington Post contributor, tweeted about the flower-draped Macron, “My God! Macron over-garlanded in Polynesia.”

He eventually deleted the tweet, but others didn’t, including Noga Tarnopolsky, an Israel-based journalist who writes for the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Daily Beast.

“President Macron is turned into a human wreath during his official welcome to French Polynesia,” tweeted Tarnopolsky, receiving over 36,000 likes for the post.

Another Israeli journalist dubbed Macron, “The walking flower visiting French Polynesia.”

“Others, including Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon, The Guardian, New Statesman and Politico contributor Pauline Bock, BBC Radio 1 host Ali Plumb, The Daily Beast editor at large Molly Jong-Fast, and CNN senior global affairs analyst Bianna Golodryga were similarly duped,” reports Sputnik.

Imagine if Trump meme makers had published a similar doctored video that showed the former president receiving such adulation.

They’d be scorned, outed and potentially deplatformed for the joke, but mainstream journalists can get away with it with no consequences whatsoever.

Fox News Has Effectively Banned Trump From Appearing on Their Network

Decision at “highest levels” to shun former president in favor of DeSantis.

Fox News has effectively banned Donald Trump from appearing on their network in what seems to be part of a deliberate move to throw its support behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

A report by the New York Times noted that Trump has not appeared on Fox News in over 100 days in what seems to be part of an intentional effort to freeze out his 2024 candidacy.

Having last appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on April 13, Trump himself complained that his old friend “doesn’t seem to be paying him much attention anymore.”

According to Newsmax, this is a clear sign that Fox is “banning” Trump from the network altogether as it prepares to throw its full weight behind DeSantis.

The right-wing news outlet pointed to a video released by Fox News two weeks ago which showed ‘man on the street’ style interviews with Trump supporters who said they don’t want him to run again and “unanimously backed DeSantis for 2024.”

A decision has reportedly been made at “the highest levels” of Fox’s parent company and by the Murdoch family to shun Trump entirely.

“Fox News opposed Trump in 2016 when it mattered and right before the 2020 election the Daily Beast reported that Rupert Murdoch was predicting Trump will lose “in a landslide,” points out Chris Menahan.

“The Daily Beast credited “three people who have spoke with Murdoch” for the scoop but I suspect Murdoch just gave them the story himself.”

Trump has repeatedly suggested he will run for the presidency again in 2024, although many supporters expected him to announce his candidacy in July and that never happened.

The former president is still weighing up whether to make the announcement before or after this year’s mid-terms, which Republicans are expected to win handsomely.

Last month, an unlisted video discovered on YouTube showed Trump’s plane getting a new paint job, suggesting he could be about to announce his 2024 bid to return to the White House.

Trump reportedly told allies recently that if he is re-elected he will impose a “purge” of the deep state and right the wrongs of his first term.

As we highlighted earlier, Trump trolled Biden by suggesting he caught dementia, not COVID, and will retire part time to a nursing home.

Trump Trolls Biden by Suggesting He Contracted Dementia, Not COVID

“Get well soon, Joe!”

Donald Trump trolled Joe Biden by suggesting the president has contracted dementia, not COVID, and is considering moving to a nursing home.

Trump made the comments on Truth Social after it was revealed that the quadruple vaccinated Biden had caught COVID for the second time in the space of two weeks.

“Joe Biden’s second bout of Covid, sometimes referred to as the China Virus, was sadly misdiagnosed by his doctors. He instead has Dementia, but is happily recovering well,” Trump wrote.

“Joe is thinking of moving, part time, to one of those beautiful Wisconsin Nursing Homes, where almost 100% of the residents miraculously, and for the first time in history, had the strength and energy to vote — even if those votes were cast illegally,” he added.

Biden was released from isolation on Wednesday last week after testing negative for the virus and finishing a five-day course of Paxlovid.

However, on Saturday it was announced that Biden had again tested positive, although the White House claimed he was suffering no symptoms.

As we have documented, many top Democrats remain unconvinced that Biden can run successfully for re-election in 2024, citing his apparent cognitive impairment that only seems to be getting worse.

The New York Times published an article lamenting the fact that Biden’s double COVID diagnosis will “complicate his effort to turn his illness into a positive story” and delay his campaign trips in support of Democratic allies.

The newspaper also fretted that yet another example of Paxlovid causing a rebound COVID diagnosis will make Pfizer look bad.

The report admitted that the number of rebound cases caused by the drug is “likely significantly higher” than those acknowledged by Pfizer itself.

Democrat House Majority Leader Refuses to Commit to Supporting Biden 2024

Rats continue to flee the sinking ship.

Published

Democrat House majority leader Steny Hoyer (D-NY) refused to commit to supporting Biden 2024 in another sign that the president is being jettisoned as his cognitive abilities decline.

Hoyer made the comments during an appearance on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show.

“Let me ask you this, do you think, as some in your party are saying, [Biden] should run again, he’s open to running again, he’s not too old to run again?” Cavuto asked Hoyer.

“Neil, I-I-I’m not gonna go there,” Hoyer replied. “You’re asking about problems today, this is about today. There’s an inflation problem.”

“Well, six out of 10 Democrats don’t think the President’s up to dealing with this today,” Cavuto interjected, but Hoyer refused to be drawn on the matter.

With the New York Times having published six hit pieces against Biden’s candidacy in the last two months, the rats appear to be fleeing the sinking ship.

Front and center as the reason is Biden’s declining cognitive abilities, with him stumbling into yet another verbal gaffe yesterday by saying he had cancer.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also refused to say she’d support Biden running again during an appearance on CNN last month.

Yesterday, we highlighted the comments of Dick Morris, former top advisor to Bill Clinton, who sensationally claimed that Hillary is being lined up to replace Biden.

According to Morris, the Democratic establishment knows “that Biden can’t run again in 2024” due to his “quickly declining mental abilities” and the economic disaster he had presided over.

As we document in the video below, given how he has behaved over the last two years, the notion that Biden would come out on top of debates with Trump two years from now is absurd.
