    Stephen Colbert Falsely Claims Trump Didn’t Meet ‘Single Storm Victim’ During Texas Visit

    Stephen Colbert Falsely Claims Trump Didn’t Meet ‘Single Storm Victim’ During Texas Visit

    When the truth isn't on your side, make up your own truth.

    For that matter, if you're on the left you don't even need to see what the truth is first. Just make up the one you want it to be.

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert ripped President Donald Trump for his response to Hurricane Harvey during his Tuesday night monologue — but incorrectly claimed that the president had not met with a “single” victim of the devastating storm during his visits to flood-ravaged Texas this month.


    During his introduction Tuesday night — his first show back after a two-week vacation — the outspoken anti-Trump critic read from a Politico story dated August 29, as The Hill noted.

    “It was a presidential trip to a deluged state where the president didn’t meet a single storm victim, see an inch of rain or get near a flooded street,” Colbert said.



    “He’s been closer to a flood in a Russian hotel room,” the CBS host added.

    But as The Hill points out, the report Colbert referred to came from Trump’s first visit to Texas on August 29, when he visited Corpus Christi, so as to avoid impeding relief efforts in Houston. The president conducted a briefing on the storm at the Annaville Fire Department as hundreds of Texans lined the street, chanting pro-Trump slogans including “Texas Strong!” and “We love Trump!”

    The president visited the devastated Houston region four days later, where he met with with Harvey victims and helped to serve meals at the relief center set up at NRG Stadium. As Breitbart News reported, Trump met with families affected by the flooding and took selfies and photos with several children inside the relief center.

    He'll just say it was "comedy" that he was doing. Like Kathy Griffin's "comedy" holding a severed Trump head.

    What the piece of crap didn't show was after the President handed the man in the pickup a carton...he loaded up 6 or 7 boxes in the back of it...
