Earlier today, Donald Trump kicked off his highly hypocritical, problematic “Made in America” week, launching it with a speech that was televised to the entire country. While the majority of Americans would roll their eyes at Trump’s ridiculous themed week, MSNBC found the most brilliant way to hit back and highlight the irony in Trump’s agenda and words.
As Trump dedicates the week to encourage manufacturers to keep jobs in America, MSNBC issued a brutal fact-check to remind every American that Trump is basically talking out of his a** and hardly practices anything he preaches. The chyron MSNBC displayed said it all: “Trump: Made in America ‘means it’s the best.’ (His family’s products are mostly made overseas.)”
Check out the screenshot below, which is basically going to make Trump have a meltdown as soon as he lays eyes on it.
Trump’s ‘Made in America’ week was doomed from the start. Yesterday, Trump’s team struggled to provide answers for why Ivanka Trump’s clothing line is made overseas. The Washington Post even pointed this out:
For Trump, highlighting U.S.-made products is inconsistent with his practices as a businessman. For years, the Trump Organization has outsourced much of its product manufacturing, relying on a global network of factories in a dozen countries — including Bangladesh, China and Mexico — to make its clothing, home decor pieces and other items.”
Once again, the mainstream media is doing its job and taking on the responsibility of exposing Trump’s lies and holding him accountable. Trump routinely encourages practices that he doesn’t even follow, hoping that no one will point out the hypocrisy of his statements and behavior. But as long as the free press continues to report the facts, Americans will be able to see Trump for the lying fraud that he is.
