Trump’s new ambassador to the Netherlands just disgraced our nation in his first Dutch interview

President Trump’s new ambassador to the Netherlands just learned the hard way that you cannot cry “fake news!” to get yourself out of every situation.

Former congressman Pete Hoekstra, a man who once held a 2006 press conference to announce that 500 chemical weapons had been discovered in Iraq (they hadn’t), was appointed by Trump to represent our nation in Holland.

It turns out that Hoekstra has made some curious remarks about the Netherlands in 2015 – specifically, that there were “no-go zones” where people feared to tread due to the threats posed by dangerous immigrants and “radical Islam.”

That is, of course, an absolutely ridiculous conspiracy theory circulated in far-right media circles and is the definition of “fake news.”

When confronted with the remarks by Dutch reporter Wouter Zwart, Hoekstra denied ever saying those things. “I didn’t say that. That is actually an incorrect statement. We would call it fake news.”

Zwart countered by reminding him that there is in fact video of him saying these things, which he then shows him.

Hoekstra had no answer.
