“Reportedly,” is a word used to convey that something is claimed to be the case or has taken place, although there is no proof, correctly identified by President Trump as fake news.
And newspapers allegedly, supposedly and purportedly are deemed to be instruments of fact, dependably delivering the news.
This sarcasm is directed at the radically leftist Arizona Republic, which is dependably undependable. As an example, the banner headline topping Saturday’s front page might be mistaken for an April Fool’s Day edition bearing these words: “Trump reportedly insulted McCain.”
John McCain died August 25, 2018. He then had three funerals, in three different locations — Phoenix, Arizona, Washington D.C., and Annapolis Maryland — ensuring it is past the point of speculation he can still be insulted.
The premise of the newspaper article is that President Trump is alleged to have maligned McCain following his death, which Trump denies. It’s a “he said, someone alleges” scenario and first class farce intended solely to discredit Trump and siphon votes from him less than two months before Election Day. There is no pretext too low.
The allegations, initially printed in the leftist Atlantic magazine, were described as originating from “three anonymous sources.” That fact alone should serve to discredit the report. Instead it rates front page coverage by the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper.
McCain, who can’t be praised enough by the radical newspaper, still has his syndicate actively working to take down Pres. Trump and Sen. McSally.
Vengeful McCain tried to taint Trump by claiming he had Russian ties though he knew that to be false as he maliciously hand-carried a fictitious “dossier,” paid for by the DNC to then-FBI Director James Comey.
When caught, McCain in his characteristic style snapped, “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”
For a more reliable version of John McCain, do yourself a favor and read, “People Must Stop Defending John McCain, He Ended His Career As A Jerk, And He Started Russiagate,” posted in The Lid.
Arizona Republican Sen. Martha McSally is being challenged by Mark Kelly, supported by Socialist billionaire George Soros. Democrat Kelly, also backed by the newspaper, launched two national gun control PACs devoted to electing like minded Democrats and is aligned with extremist U.S. Rep. Ihan Omar. He never uses the word “Democrat” in his ads, a scheme that worked for Kyrsten Sinema, as he tries to obscure his political allegiance. Kelly’s close business ties with Communist China earning him an estimated $20+ million render him unacceptable.
Democrats running for political office engage in a game of charades. The more they can conceal, contort and misrepresent, the more they are given cover by the hemorrhaging subscriptions local newspaper.
