Liberal new outlets The Daily Beast, New York Post and several others were fact checked on a fake news story they promoted, that made Eric Trump & Don Trump Jr. look like they skipped out on a tab at a pub during their recent trip to Ireland.
While visiting the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel in Doonbeg, Ireland, the brothers went on a pub crawl and landed in The Igoe Inn Bar and Restaurant. The bar is a local haunt that’s been open for over thirty years.
There, they were greeted by locals and given a picture of Doonbeg’s castles. They were also invited to pour a few ales for the patrons.
Bar owner Caroline Kennedy told The Irish Mirror.
“They were so lovely and down to earth and gave a great hello to everyone,”
“I said, ‘Come on lads, you have to come in and pull a drink,’ so they did.”
A video from the Irish pub shows Eric Trump speaking to the crowd and the brothers opening a tab for the entire pub.
As with most positive news stories about the Trump family, the Trump-hating mainstream media decided to run a false narrative about the event. And of course, the news flooded the internet.
After the Trump sons walked away without immediately paying the tab Kennedy reportedly joked that the Trumps didn’t carry any cash on them. But bar had been given a purchase order number from the golf course to cover the bill. Of course, by then the left-wing media had gone crazy and totally blown the incident out of proportion.
But the Igoe came to the brother’s defense in a post on their Facebook page.
Media outlets also suggested that the Trump family had gone to Ireland just to promote their golf course. They reported that the trip was costing taxpayers millions of dollars. However, the Trump brothers paid their own way for the trip.
