Trump’s poorly-spelled list of ‘ignored’ terror attacks baffles journalists

After President Trump sloppily suggested this Monday that the media is covering up a number of terror attacks, the White House doubled down on the claim and released a list of alleged examples.

“You’ve seen what happened in Paris, and Nice. All over Europe, it’s happening,” he said to a group of military leaders early Monday. “It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”

Later that evening, the White House released a list which included the December 2, 2015 mass shooting at the “San Bernadino” attack. The name of the city, San Bernardino, was misspelled.

Whoever wrote and edited the list was also apparently confused about the spelling of the words “attacker” and “attackers, repeatedly spelling them as “attaker” and “attakers.”

Misspellings aside, CNN’s Jim Acosta was genuinely baffled by the list:

From The Hill:

The White House distributed Monday’s list to illustrate how “most” of the noted attacks had not received adequate media coverage.

The list spans from September 2014 to December 2016 and contains 78 attacks planned or carried out by followers of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) both at home and abroad.

The collection includes major attacks such as San Bernardino and the November 2015 massacre in Paris that dominated news coverage for weeks.

Barely two weeks into Trump’s presidency, and this latest unforced error marks multiple times the White House has chose to double-down on Trump’s (easily debunked) brain farts rather than correct the record according to the facts.. His surrogates repeatedly use the tactic as well, most famously Trump chief advisor Kellyanne Conway‘s dissemination of “alternative facts” and the non-existent “Bowling Green Massacre.”
