This anti-Trump “journalist” seems really desperate to prove a “cover up”…of something.
But when you’ve even lost MSNBC…
Via Daily Wire.
A Wall Street Journal reporter with a history of anti-Trump bias claimed on Wednesday that the White House covered the name of the USS John McCain during President Donald Trump’s recent visit to Japan — which was later disputed by multiple sources.
In a tweet that went viral, WSJ reporter Rebecca Ballhaus wrote that “a tarp was hung over the ship’s name ahead of the trip, and sailors—who wear caps bearing the ship’s name—were given the day off for Trump’s visit.”
Ballhaus’s tweet and report went viral and were used to immediately attack the president before any additional information was able to come out.
A couple of hours later, the Navy Chief of Information tweeted: “The name of USS John S. McCain was not obscured during the POTUS visit to Yokosuka on Memorial Day. The Navy is proud of that ship, its crew, its namesake and its heritage.”….
Even MSNBC appeared to refute Ballhaus’ claims, noting that the tarp was removed before the president arrived in Japan.
Per @ckubeNBC: A spokesperson for US Pacific Fleet said the picture of the tarp is from Friday and it
was taken down on Saturday.
"All ships remained in normal configuration
during POTUS' visit,” CDR Nate Christensen said. https://t.co/6is616izgd

Ballhaus has a history of distorting things to attack the president.
Earlier this year, Ballhaus took a quote from Trump out of context when the president was responding to the threat of white nationalism….
