Newsweek fires reporter who made up the story about Trump’s Thanksgiving


Newsweek reporter Jessica Kwong, who says she is a political reporter “covering Trump administration and family,” wrote that President Trump was golfing and tweeting over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The story’s headline was, “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more.”

It was totally made up. Ms. Kwong is a Trump hater whose Twitter feed is filled with anti-Trump garbage.

Donald Trump Jr. was the first to tweet that ‘fake news gonna fake’ with a photo of her fake news headline side-by-side with a photo of the President in Afghanistan with the troops.

President Trump retweeted his son Don Jr.’s tweet, and added the perfect response, saying about the hardly-functioning, once highly-respected publication — “I thought Newsweek was out of business?” [They are only online.]

She corrected the story and, without apologizing, claimed it was an “honest mistake.”


“Newsweek investigated the failures that led to the publication of the inaccurate report that President Trump spent Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing rather than visiting troops in Afghanistan,” a Newsweek representative told the Washington Examiner. “The story has been corrected, and the journalist responsible has been terminated. We will continue to review our processes and, if required, take further action.”

Hours after the president’s trip was announced, Newsweek edited Kwong’s story and added a note at the bottom of it. The beginning of the story now focuses on the president’s trip and his speech to the troops, while the new headline reads, “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing — and surprising U.S. troops in Afghanistan.”

The note at the end of the story reads, “This story has been substantially updated and edited at 6:17 p.m. EST to reflect the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan. Additional reporting by James Crowley.”

Not for nothing but he and Melania don’t get paid to be in Afghanistan with our troops on Thanksgiving. They did it because they want to do it. They should be applauded.



After we published, we spotted this:



    • Actually beauty is in the eye of the beholder, ugly can be fixed with in some cases with a knife but on purpose stupid is forever.

  1. The media, including Newsweek, have allowed and tolerated massively biased reporting on Trump every day. They enable these reporters, and fire her for a typical smear on Trump. The only reason they fired her is that they are on the edge of bankruptcy.

    She is immature and lacks critical thinking, this is what our schools produce.

  2. Meanwhile, in Hong Kong….

    The anti-communist youth of HK were giving thanks for US/Trump support.

    See, Ms. Kwong only understands the gallons of Kool-Aid her commie US professors served her.

    Whilst, the kids left behind in HK knows the price of liberty & the truth about socialism.
