Lying Rep. Adam Schiff has a hard time going too long without making false accusations against President Donald Trump.
Schiff Lying… Again!
He decided now would be a good time to falsely claim on CNN’s State of the Union that the president is “willfully fanning the flames” of violence.
As Democrats fuel the riots taking place, they have stayed silent on the violence until very recently.
Schiff’s “proof” of his radical claims revolves around White House adviser Kellyanne Conway’s remarks saying “they believe the violence is helpful to them.”
“The president is willfully fanning the flames of this violence. As his own adviser, Kellyanne Conway, said last week, they believe the violence is helpful to them. And the president is only motivated by one thing: what’s in it for him? And he sees this violence and the — his ability to agitate more of it as useful to his campaign. What it does to the country, the loss of life, he doesn’t care,” Schiff said.
Trump is willfully fanning the flames of violence.
Why? Because he believes it’s helpful to him.
Trump is motivated by only one thing: what's in it for him?
And he sees this violence as useful to his campaign.

Perspective is Everything
In no way did Conway say that. She was combatting remarks by Democrat Mayor Pete Buttigieg that the ever-growing violence was completely Trump’s fault and simply pointed out that the Democrat mayors and governors refused the help offered by the president.
The advisor went on to just point out a clear observation that the riots show the “very clear choice on who is best on public safety and law and order.”
Breitbart News reported on the matter:
“Conway appeared on Fox and Friends and was asked to respond to the claim by former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg that the riots were happening “on Donald Trump’s watch.”
Conway replied that the riots were happening in cities and states run by Democrats, most of whom had refused help from Trump. She then quoted a “restaurateur” in Madison, Wisconsin, who evidently opposed Trump and who asked rioters whether they were trying to get Trump re-elected.”

Conway then added: “He knows, full stop, and I guess Mayor Pete knows, full stop, that the more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who is best on public safety and law and order.”
That is not a “hope” for violence. It is a simple observation that Democrats’ inability to stop the violence in the cities and states that they govern makes the case stronger for Trump’s re-election. Others have made similar observations.”
Facts Show Just How Crazy Schiff’s Comments Are
When put into context, it is clear that neither Trump nor Conway stunted for violence in any way, shape, or form.
This is just another example of Schiff using false narratives to try and demonize the president of the United States.
