HOAX: Muslim Student Arrested For Making Up Story About Being Attacked By Trump Supporters

A few weeks ago, a student at Baruch College who is a Muslim, claimed she was attacked on a subway by Trump supporters who tried to rip off her headscarf. Now she’s under arrest because she made the whole thing up.

The New York Daily News reports:

Muslim college student who claimed Trump supporters attacked her on subway busted for filing false report

A Muslim student who said she was harassed on the subway by drunken, hate-spewing white men shouting “Donald Trump!” found herself behind bars Wednesday after telling cops she made the whole story up.

Yasmin Seweid, 18, joined a growing list of local and national alleged hate crime victims when she told cops that she was taunted Dec. 1 on the No. 6 train by three men who called her a terrorist and tried to snatch her hijab off her head while straphangers did nothing but watch.

But Seweid finally broke down and admitted to detectives that it was all a big lie.

“Nothing happened, and there was no victim,” a police source said.

“We dedicated a lot of resources to this — and don’t get me wrong, this is what we do — but we had guys going back and forth, looking for video and witnesses. And we couldn’t find anything.”

Of course, when she first made the claim a few weeks ago, everyone in the liberal media believed her.

Maybe they’ll think twice next time. Oh, who are we kidding? They won’t.
