Liberal Trump haters couldn’t wait to bash the president for being mean and dismissing a child at the annual Easter Egg roll.
There’s just one issue.
They were completely wrong, yet again.
The brouhaha started after Politico posted a video that showed a youngster giving a “Make America Great Again” hat to President Donald Trump to sign, which he did.
It then appeared that the president flung the hat back into the crowd for any random fan to get, causing a frenzy of responses from mainstream and social media.

Trump tossing the signed hat at the Easter egg party shows his contempt for his fans. Very sick.

Yeah, it’s also incorrect.
NBC Nightly News’ Micah Grimes posted video on social media from another angle that showed President Trump flipped it to the same young man who gave him the hat to sign.
@politico Appears, in another angle, that he threw it back to the teen who handed it to him. https://t.co/LdEGQR7gvq

Social media users were not surprised that the media attempted to spin the story to make the president look bad.

@MicahGrimes @politico I can’t stand Trump but he had to toss it so that the teen who handed it to him could get it back. Fair is fair he didn’t make a kid cry.

@MicahGrimes @politico This is some pretty damning video evidence that the editors at Politico pull stories out of their ass.

@MicahGrimes @politico Politico either misrepresents or is outright fake news. No surprise here.
