In the spring of 2020, radical leftists in Washington, DC attacked a historic church in Lafayette Park.
Trump walked out of the White House and stood in front of the church holding up a bible.
The media accused Trump of using the police to clear the protesters so that he could have a photo-op.
They were completely wrong. Anyone surprised?
NBC News is now reporting:
Police did not clear D.C.’s Lafayette Square of protesters so Trump could hold a photo op, new report says
When federal police officers violently cleared protesters from the city’s Lafayette Square in June 2020, they did it so a contractor could install fencing — not to let President Donald Trump hold a photo opportunity at a nearby church, an investigation by the Interior Department’s inspector general has found.
That finding, published Wednesday, is likely to surprise many critics of Trump, who have long asserted that the president or his attorney general ordered the operation to pave the way for an act of political theater. That is also the central allegation of a federal lawsuit by Black Lives Matter against the Justice Department.
The report found no evidence of that, but did find that Attorney General William Barr urged officials to speed up the clearing process once Trump had decided to walk through the area that evening.
The inspector general, Mark Greenblatt, identified problems with the clearing operation, including the likelihood that many protesters did not hear police warnings to disperse before the police moved in.
This is a pattern with the media. Do they ever get tired of being wrong?
Here we go again!
Episode 100 in "the press was wrong, Trump was right!"
I said this from the podium endlessly. But only now do they finally report the truth: "Police did not clear Lafayette Park area so Trump could hold 'Bible' photo op: Watchdog"https://t.co/ggpy6rYVtw

Why should anyone trust the media anymore?
They burned their last shred of credibility under Trump.
