The media is at it again. They just can’t resist pushing negative and false stories about Trump, all while accusing him of pushing conspiracy theories.
In this latest instance, a rumor began about Trump declaring martial law. It’s not going to happen and Trump called out the media for treating it as serious news.
The Hill reports:
Trump pushes back on reported talk of martial law: ‘Fake News’
President Trump in an early morning tweet dismissed a New York Times report that he had entertained a proposal from former national security adviser Michael Flynn to declare martial law.
“Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
The Times reported Saturday that Trump asked during a White House meeting that also involved Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, about a recommendation his former aide had made on the conservative Newmax TV to “rerun” the 2020 election under military supervision.
While it was not clear if Trump endorsed the idea, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone sharply pushed back on it, according to the newspaper.

Here’s one explanation for why the media did this:
The media secretly, and desperately, wants all Trump supporters to believe Trump will declare martial law
that way they descend on DC January 6th in the millions
They want the conflict otherwise they know they are done
No Trump, No Ratings https://t.co/YSlBbhib4o

This is also a great point:
Media: “TRUMP WILL DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, according to anonymous sources.”@realDonaldTrump: “Fake news!”
Media: “See, we stopped Trump in his tracks and saved democracy! Respect us!”

Our media is garbage.
They intentionally spread misinformation for political purposes.
