As Twitchy reported, an AP reporter who was in the Rio Grande posted another angle Friday of those Border Patrol agents rounding up Haitian immigrants trying to cross the border. Perhaps better than any other photo or video we’ve seen, this video showed professionals doing their jobs, using their horses to drive back an onslaught of illegal immigrants. Yes, at one point one agent grabbed a Haitian by his T-shirt, a still photo of which kicked off the “whip” narrative that made it all the way to the White House.
CNN’s John Harwood, who’s biased even by CNN standards, reported that President Joe Biden “tried to strike a tone of solidarity” with Americans shocked and appaled by those “horrendous” images of Border Patrol agents on horseback “swinging lariats or whips or whatever they were.”
Media: @JohnJHarwood to @KateBolduan: @JoeBiden "tried to strike a tone of solidarity with Americans who saw those horrendous videos of agents on horseback swinging lariat or whips or whatever they were, in ways to intimidate Haitian migrants. He said he shared their outrage." pic.twitter.com/1tCBBjI4jB

Biden made up an event that didn’t happen, and said he would “punish” people who didn’t do it.

Except we’ve seen the videos and understand nothing horrendous happened and there was no whipping or anything else. Pure made up outrage.

So they tried to strike a tone of solidarity around something that was completely made up?

That’s not what happened.

@CNN When will you be correcting this?

So here we have Harwood, again, telling a bald-faced lie about the incident.

You’re corrupt. The agents were doing nothing wrong. But you never give up a chance to piss on law enforcement when you can. Except of course the Capitol Police because they can do no wrong.

He was more outraged and promised accountability to the border patrol agents in this 100% FALSE story…. this is a direct contrast to his reaction to the killing of 10 civilians in Kabul including 7 CHILDREN!
— Jim Peeps (@Jimpeeps12) September 25, 2021
Yet no one will be held accountable for the drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 innocent civilians, 7 of them children?

Had Biden even acknowledged that?
Is he gonna drone strike them, too? Joe Biden vows that mounted Border Patrol agents ‘will pay’ for doing things they never actually did https://t.co/Fw5Cp5Auvc
