(Tea Party 247) – A smear campaign is when an individual makes up a deliberate plan to spread false and damaging claims against a public figure in order to discredit them. Unfortunately, smear campaigns, though full of lies and misinformation, can be highly effective.
Millions of Americans actually believe President Trump was in bed with Russia to rig the 2016 election. Despite having since been disproven and President Trump exonerated of these claims, millions still stick by it today. After the Democrats fabricated evidenced and attempted to frame the President of this wrong doing they then ran a smear campaign against him over it, and they are still very much running it on him today.
Millions of Americans truly believe that President Trump is a racist and a KKK supporter. Despite the fact that there isn’t a shred of actual evidence to support this claim and that President Trump has, on over 20 occasions, denounced white supremacy, racism, the KKK and any other racist groups, this is still one of the left’s favorite smears against the President.
Millions of Americans believe President Trump is literally a Nazi or is the next Adolph Hitler. Just like the first two, there is no evidence whatsoever to support the claim that President Trump is even remotely similar to a Nazi let alone the next Hitler. They call him a dictator and a fascist while they do everything they can to shut down and silence their opposition. This is one smear that is so far from anything based in reality you would think no one could possibly believe it, yet, millions do.
It truly boggles the mind things people will believe if they’re just told to in 21st century woke America.
What a smear campaign is not, on the other hand, is the circulating of factual evidence and the declaring of actual facts.
The New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s email between him and an adviser from Ukrainian energy company Burisma is not a smear campaign. Sure, the story is pretty damning; Hunter Biden received an email in 2015 from Vadym Pozharskyi in which Pozharskyi thanked the younger Biden for the “opportunity” to meet with his father, then Vice President Joe Biden. Just because the story hurts the Biden campaign does not make it automatically false or a smear campaign.
Joe Biden, apparently, disagrees. After going days without any “journalist” even so much as bringing up the email story to Biden, CBS reporter Bo Erickson finally questioned Biden on the subject after a “car rally” in Detroit. Joe Biden’s response was predictable, at best.
“I knew you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” Biden snapped at Erickson.
I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?
He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” pic.twitter.com/Eo6VD4TqxD

Erickson really doesn’t get points for finally being the one to ask Biden since he seemed to be more than content with Biden’s pre-planned response. Erickson didn’t even attempt a follow-up question.
This illustrates just how easy it is for Joe Biden to put out false and misleading information. By calling the New York Post’s story a “smear” campaign he discredits it and millions of brainwashed leftists just accept that since he said it. Apparently, only President Trump can be a liar in their minds.
Leftists won’t even bother to look into the actual facts or review the evidence before regurgitating that the Post’s story is a “smear campaign” because Joe Biden has declared it.
