[Ed. – Another case where fake news survives after it is debunked because it provides the Left with an opportunity to slam Donald Trump or his family.]
This is stupid and infuriating in the way that so many other fake news stories are; it shouldn’t have been news in the first place, but even though it’s been corrected, the mythology will always live on in the minds of The Resistance.
“When Donald Trump’s sons Eric and Donald, Jr. went on their Irish pub crawl last week and offered free rounds for the house, they failed to pay the tab right away, according to at least one pub owner,” the Daily Beast piece now reads. Note the addition of “right away” as well as this follow-up tweet:
If you look at the URL for the piece it still reads, “Eric and Donald Trump Jr. Still Have Not Paid Irish Bar Tab.” Why that’s a story we don’t know, but The Daily Beast was on it.
We called the Igoe Inn in Doonbeg, Co. Clare and checked and, yes, apparently, the Trumps paid their bar tab https://t.co/wQK1rXiA7k
