FOX: "What's going on in Oregon, it is really an overgrowth of GOVERNMENT gone wild"


Trump ad uses footage from Morocco, not Mexican border

Donald Trump's new TV ad is not quite what it seems. Footage that is implied to be from the U.S. border with Mexico is actually from more than 5,000 miles away, in Morocco.

Here’s the Morocco footage:

And here’s the Trump ad:

According to PolitiFact, which gave the footage a "pants on fire" rating, the video of people racing to a wall is used while the narrator says, "He'll stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that Mexico will pay for.”

But it isn’t from Mexico. According to PolitiFact, the clip was posted by an Italian TV network in May 2014 and is of Moroccans going into Melilla, an autonomous North African enclave held by Spain.

Trump's campaign said Monday that the use of the Moroccan clip was "intentional."

"The use of this footage was intentional and selected to demonstrate the severe impact of an open border and the very real threat Americans face if we do not immediately build a wall and stop illegal immigration,"
spokeswoman Hope Hicks said. "The biased mainstream media doesn’t understand, but Americans who want to protect their jobs and their families do."

A piece in this morning's New York Times about Trump & his family will make you sick.

This guy is nothing but a thug ...

In 1999, the family patriarch died, and 650 people, including many real estate executives and politicians, crowded his funeral at Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue.

But the drama was hardly put to rest. Freddy’s son, Fred III, spoke at the funeral, and that night, his wife went into labor with their son, who developed seizures that led to cerebral palsy. The Trump family promised that it would take care of the medical bills.

Then came the unveiling of Fred Sr.’s will, which Donald had helped draft. It divided the bulk of the inheritance, at least $20 million, among his children and their descendants, “other than my son Fred C. Trump Jr.”

Freddy’s children sued, claiming that an earlier version of the will had entitled them to their father’s share of the estate, but that Donald and his siblings had used “undue influence” over their grandfather, who had dementia, to cut them out.

A week later, Mr. Trump retaliated by withdrawing the medical benefits critical to his nephew’s infant child.

“I was angry because they sued,” he explained during last week’s interview.
