Left-Wing Media LIES: Donald Trump Did NOT Remove Bust of Martin Luther King from Oval Office
-By Warner Todd Huston
On the day Donald J. Trump took the oath of office he took time out to sign a few early Executive Orders in the Oval Office. Members of the media, though were fixated on their claim that Trump took out the statuette bust of Martin Luther King, Jr., and replaced it with Winston Churchill. But their reports which went viral among liberals is built on lies. Trump didn’t remove the King bust at all. It’s just more liberal fake news.
One of the early Tweets about the matter was from Breitbart News London’s Raheem Kassam who tweeted out a photo revealing that Trump had returned the Churchill bust originally put in the Oval Office by George W. Bush, a statuette that Obama had removed when he first took office.

In its place Obama put a bust of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. Banishing the Churchill bust from the Oval Office was one of the earliest things Obama did when he took office. But now hat the Oval Office is Trump’s domain for the next four years he decide to return the Churchill bust that Obama eliminated.
But as far as the Old Media establishment was concerned the “real” story was how Trump got rid of the King bust and they began a tweetstorm getting left-wingers all riled up over the claim.

From White House pool reporter @toddgillman: the MLK bust is no longer in the Oval Office. A bust of Winston Churchill is back though.

Only minutes after these false reports the media began posting stories on how that racist Trump hates Martin Luther King. For instance, NPR posted a story asserting that the bust was removed. So did the left-wing fake news site Huffington Post. Many others followed suit, especially in the liberal blogosphere and left-wing clickbait sites like TruthExaminer.com.
But all these stories were based on a lie. The King bust never left Trump’s Oval Office. It was there the whole time. They just moved it to a different table.
Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer Tweeted out a photo to prove it…

Some of the press later corrected their lies, but the fake news is still being tweeted and re-tweeted by lying leftists on Twitter.
