USA Today Fact-Checkers: Trump Selling T-Shirts With Nazi Symbol

 In Politics

USA Today took a hit on July 12 when they claimed that the Trump campaign was selling t-shirts with the ‘Nazi symbol’ of an ‘imperial eagle.’ Their rationale was so over the top that Twitter users made jokes of their stupidity.  So much so, that the paper issued a sort of correction by saying “Worth noting, the eagle is a longtime US symbol, too.” No s***, Sherlock.

Never mind that the article mentioned the Trump campaign was being “criticized”, they just whipped it out that the campaign was selling t-shirts with the nazi symbol of an “imperial eagle.”

The t-shirt resembles the Marine Corps logo, or the Navy logo, or the Great Seal. Except that the eagle’s head on the shirt is pointed the opposite direction, which was dumb on the part of the designer.

The United States Marine Corps is a case in point.

The EGA, or Eagle, Globe and Anchor employs an Eagle. The eagle is also prevalent on the United States Navy logo. Eagles are prevalent on many logos in the United States, including the Great Seal of the United States.

That’s not even counting the companies, sports teams, and countless patriotic displays that use the eagle in their logos.

“They were righty ridiculed with other images of eagles hold round objects such as the Marine Corps’ eagle, globe, and anchor, an Obama campaign logo, the official of Nancy Pelosi’s office (eagle and a globe), and stamps from the U.S. Postal Service.” NewsBusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro

But no worries, Twitter users immediately took USA Today to task:

Of course, there are the folks who saw that they were using their double-standard to completely ignore a symbol regularly used by Black Lives Matter:

This is eagle discimination! Where are the animal advocates, the outrage?

The fake news media runs with whatever they think will cause people to believe the lie that Trump is racist. It’s not true, by the way, but stupid moves like USA Today made  cause people to see what they want to see….even when it’s totally wrong. Their statement – and the picture they posted-  was total propaganda and had an agenda behind it…all because they hate the President of the  United States.
