Handshake fail? Context reveals the intentions of Poland's first lady (Video)

By TATIANA PROPHET

Agata Kornhauser-Duda, the first lady of Poland, actually shook President Donald Trump's hand first, but did not shake Melania Trump's hand in that sequence, according to raw footage of the Warsaw event. Then one minute later, Mrs. Duda moved to compensate for leaving Mrs. Trump out, and reached over to shake her hand, brushing past President Trump. Right after that, she again shook Donald Trump's hand. So whoever edited the clip that went viral, and upon which Time magazine, Vanity Fair, Mediaite and Metro UK based their stories, had to deceptively cut it short on both ends. That is the very definition of fake news.

Rod Rosenstein: Anonymous sources conflict with the man himself

By TATIANA PROPHET

Last Wednesday, a day after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the Washington Post published a detailed account of what led to the firing.

"Inside Trump’s anger and impatience — and his sudden decision to fire Comey," read the headline.

For four paragraphs, the authors -- Philip Rucker, Ashley Parker, Sari Horwitz and Robert Costa, described an agitated and infuriated Trump, who was trying desperately to avoid the worst subject to him: Russia.

In the fourth paragraph, an anonymous source was mentioned. Trump was ready to fire the "sanctimonious" Comey. (Isn't that too big a word for Trump to use?)

"Trump summoned the two of them [Attorney General Jeff Sessions and newly appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein] to the White House for a meeting, according to a person close to the White House," stated the article.

The president gave the two Justice Department officials a directive, said the article: to explain in writing the case against Comey.

"The pair quickly fulfilled the boss’s orders, and the next day Trump fired Comey — a breathtaking move that thrust a White House already accustomed to chaos into a new level of tumult, one that has legal as well as political consequences," the four repoters wrote.
