Donald Trump’s newly appointed U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands turns in a truly farcical performance here as he flip-flops within seconds on his own statements on camera.
A reporter asked Ambassador Pete Hoekstra about comments he made ON THE RECORD regarding conditions in the Netherlands like ‘no-go’ zones in the Netherlands, and cars and politicians being burned.
Hoekstra demonstrably denies ever saying these things, calling the very idea ‘fake news.’
Then the reporter shows video of Hoekstra saying exactly that.
Err, umm, what had had happened was…
Hoekstra then says he didn’t call those statements ‘fake news’ – just minutes after saying those exact words.
I think the technical term here is called “stepping on your own dick.”
Another winning choice by Donald Trump.
p.s. Hoekstra just happens to be anti-LGBT, btw…
Dutch journalist to new US Ambassador: you said there were ‘no go zones’ in Netherlands, where are they?
Ambassador: That’s fake news, I didn’t say that
Journalist: We can show you that clip now.
Ambassador: Err 😳🤥 pic.twitter.com/8ohIOzmYAc
