The news has been buzzing lately with President Trump’s supposed “Muslim ban”. Of course, it is not a ban on Muslim’s but you cannot tell liberals that little fact. The news has been on overdrive “reporting” how this has affected these poor unfortunate refugees. One of those stories that had been reported on was about an Iraqi man named Mike Hager and his dying mother. Hager recounted how his mother was denied entry into the United States due to Trump’s travel ban and forced to fly back to Iraq where she died.
According to Daily Caller:
Hager originally told Fox2 he was flying back to the U.S. with his sick mother when she was denied boarding a flight to the U.S. Hager’s mother had lived in the U.S. since 1995 and was reportedly a green card holder.
“The immigration told us that the President of the United States put an order right now – you guys cannot go,” his story went. He continued, “I had to put my mom back on the wheelchair and take her back and call the ambulance and she was very very upset. She knew right there if we send her back to the hospital she’s going to pass away – she’s not going to make it,” adding that she died later that day.
“She’s gone because of him,” he declared.
Well, as it turns out that whole sob story was a complete lie. Hager’s mother passed away on January 22 according to her imam, which was five days before Trump signed the suspension.
In the liberal media’s attempt to undermine President Trump in any which way possible they ran with this fake news story. This is just how pathetic the liberal media is in their so-called reporting. It only takes a few minutes to fact check a story, but they are too busy pushing their agenda to report on the truth.
I can only hope that there is some consequence for him and the media for pushing this false story, but I won’t hold my breath. Hopefully, one day journalists will be journalists again and report the truth no matter what your political affiliation is.
