image for Trump Claims Doctors Left Operating Rooms To Greet Him In El Paso. Hospital Says Nope.

More than 30 people were killed in shooting massacres in those two cities earlier this month.

The President boasted on Wednesday that the people he visited in the hospital “love their President,” adding that “doctors were coming out of the operating rooms.”.

“At no time did, or would, physicians or staff leave active operating rooms during the presidential visit.

Our priority is always patient care,” Ryan Mielke, a spokesman for the University Medical Center, told a local ABC affiliate on Thursday.

Reporters were not allowed to accompany Trump on his visit to the hospital in El Paso, perhaps because eight victims of the shooting massacre there did not wish to meet with the President.

According to the Post, two victims who were already discharged did come back to the hospital to greet Trump. »

In the speech, Scheer said the most important thing to society is raising children because society’s “very survival requires it.”.

Scheer voted against the Civil Marriages Act in 2005, as did the vast majority of then-leader Stephen Harper’s Conservative caucus. »

Fake News Can Lead to False Memories

Voters may form false memories after seeing fabricated news stories, especially if those stories align with their political beliefs, according to research in Psychological Science.

“In highly emotional, partisan political contests, such as the 2020 US Presidential election, voters may ‘remember’ entirely fabricated news stories,” says lead author Gillian Murphy of University College Cork.

The study is novel because it examines misinformation and false memories in relation to a real-world referendum, Murphy explains. »
