Jonathan Swift wrote back in the 18th century, “Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it.” This is why Team Biden lies about everything so swiftly and unashamedly, no matter the topic. Once they realized that the optics over the East Palestine, Ohio train derailment were absolutely terrible, the Biden regime immediately named a culprit: “Trump did it. Duh!” That lie was spread everywhere by the media, and the truth just now comes limping along behind it. President Trump had nothing to do with the train derailment.
The misinformation specialists in the White House claimed that the reason for the derailment and subsequent toxic chemical spill was because of President Trump’s deregulation of the rail industry. They probably ran it by a focus group and decided that sounded more plausible than a story about Trump pouring vegetable oil on the tracks and making them slippery.
It’s been more than a week since Part-Time Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg first made the claim that all the train derailments on his watch were Trump’s fault. If America wants to reverse this trend, which wasn’t happening during the Trump administration for some reason, then Congress needs to re-regulate the rail industry, according to Buttigieg.
Well, now here comes the truth.
The Washington Post is certainly not a fan of Donald Trump. We’re questioning their motives for even doing this. They probably heard Pete Buttigieg’s lie and assumed it was true and thought that this effort would turn out differently. Reporters at the Post dug through all of the regulations that Trump lifted in regard to the rail industry while he was in office.
You might want to sit down for this. It turns out, they couldn’t find a single regulation that Trump lifted that could have caused the train crash in East Palestine. They reviewed “every possible regulatory change” and concluded, according to Glenn Kessler from the Post, that, “From our analysis, none of the regulatory changes made during the Trump administration at this point can be cited as contributing to the accident.”
Unfortunately, under the new rules that have been in place since the media decided it hated Trump and Trump supporters, it’s now something close to Gospel truth that Trump caused the train derailment. We’ll be seeing that lie for years to come now, just like the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax.
It’s ironic, since the Washington Post isn’t the only outlet to note that Buttigieg and the Biden White House are lying. The New York Times did a similar analysis and concluded that Buttigieg’s claims that Trump caused the accident were “inaccurate.” And Jennifer Homendy, the Biden regime’s NTSB Chair, said that Buttigieg’s claim was “misinformation.”
Joe Biden still hasn’t sent a single dime to East Palestine at this point. The only thing he sent was Pete Buttigieg, who snuck into town early one morning, and snuck back out before anyone realized he was there. He paused in East Palestine just long enough to blame the derailment on President Trump, and then he was back on a plane to DC.
Trump, meanwhile, spent a day in East Palestine, delivered truckloads of bottled water, and bought lunch for half the town. The comparison between how the people have been treated by two different leaders is like night and day. The openness, transparency, and true caring for the American people that was on display throughout the Trump presidency came to East Palestine last week. Joe Biden still can’t be bothered.
The good news is that most people don’t believe the Biden administration’s lies anymore. A full 85% of Americans said they don’t trust Biden’s EPA enough to drink the water in East Palestine. Everyone knows it’s not safe to drink. And Biden still doesn’t care.
