You’d think they would have learned after the Covington fiasco… 

Author and columnist Ian Bremmer fabricated a quote on Sunday morning, claiming that during his trip to Japan, President Trump said “Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden.”

The tweet immediately went viral, after it was retweeted by a spate of left wing journalists, politicians and pundits eager to disparage the President.

When Bremmer was challenged three hours after the tweet, he simply said “It’s plausible,” before deleting the fake quote. By that time, however, it was too late – as the anti-Trump media breathlessly propelled it around the internet.

CNN’s Ana Navarro and MSNBC guest Fernand R. Amaldi both spread the fake quote far and wide, with Navarro’s tweet generating at least 13,000 likes and 4,200 retweets.

Several Clinton campaign staffers promoted it, along with vocal anti-Trump Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu.

Who cast a skeptical eye on the quote? None other than the Daily Mail’s David Martosko and pollster Frank Luntz.

On Saturday, Trump called former Vice President Joe Biden a “low IQ individual.” He also downplayed North Korea’s recent short-range ballistic missile tests, contradicting national security adviser John Bolton and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who said it violated UN resolutions.
