Over the past year, we have seen a startling amount of hoax stories meant to demonize Donald Trump and his supporters.
All across the country, liberal agitators fabricated stories about being assaulted by Trump supporters.
President Trump’s recent immigration order sparked a firestorm of criticism from the left and it looks like the tactic of making up outrageous stories to smear his policies has been reignited.
Joel Pollak has the details about the latest example…
An Iraqi-American man who made headlines earlier this week by claiming that his ailing mother had died because of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration lied, according to the Imam of his local mosque, Detroit’s Fox 2 reported Wednesday.
Social media exploded with accusations of murder against Trump — including tweets by respected news outlets.
But the story was a lie, concocted to feed opposition against Trump’s executive order, which suspends most travel from terror-prone countries previously identified as problematic by the Obama administration. Fox 2 set the record straight in a new story:
The leader of a mosque in Dearborn has confirmed to FOX 2 that a man who claimed his mother died in Iraq after being barred from returning to the United States under a ban instituted by President Trump this weekend, lied to FOX 2 about when her death occurred.

Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, leader of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn, says Mike Hager’s mom did not pass away this weekend after being barred from traveling to the United States. The Imam confirms that Hager’s mother died before the ban was put in place.
It’s a shame that people feel the need to go to such great lengths to prove a political point.
