The new Trump ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete Hoekstra, lies about his own lies

Seasonal greetings from the United States as well! As the new ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete Hoekstra – a new appointee by the one and only Donald Trump, is already caught lying before the new year starts.

The new US ambassador to the Netherlands has denied saying that there are no-go areas in the Netherlands and that cars and politicians are being set on fire because of radical Islam. Which we also deny, but hey, we weren’t making those ridiculous hateful claims anyways.

In an interview with the Dutch news programme Nieuwsuur, Pete Hoekstra told NOS correspondent Wouter Zwart he had never said such things. ‘I didn’t say that. That is actually an incorrect statement. We would call it fake news,’ Hoekstra said. However, the new ambassador can be seen clearly making the lying statements in a shot from 2015. ‘And yes, there are no-go areas in the Netherlands’

What a clown, can’t we get another Dutchie person who’s big in the United States? Or you know, someone who isn’t caught in a triple lying combo the first day on the job.

We already wrote a bit about Pete Hoekstra, the news wasn’t good, here you go:

And then there’s also this piece about Trump and money laundering in the Netherlands:

Still thinking that the Netherlands might be a big no-go area? You might want to check this little movie about how we made it to the number spot of the ‘Good Country Index’

Now that doesn’t look like a ravished no-go area now does it Pete Hoekstra?

  1. Sorry Netherlands that the US is sending you a Trumper! Coming from Michigan USA I can tell you Mr. Hoekstra does not represent MI or the USA, just our Right Wing Fake President, President Select Trump, who may be gone in the next few months or year.
    We will take back our country and be a better country. Hold on for the time being. As your recent news shows the Fascist Right Wing is on the skids as folks get to know their evil plans for our countries.
    Have relatives from this region and know many here in MI, fun loving, hard working and great to know.
    Again Sorry!

  2. This news article was referenced and published on the web Front Page of the Washington Post with the video, Great job. This is how to fight Fake News.

  3. On behalf of a significant majority of voters in the United States of America, please accept my apologies for these lying lies and the lying liars who tell them. Frankly, I’m getting a little tired of apologizing for the actions of US presidents, but, on the upside, my lifetime has provided lots of practice. Nixon, Reagan, Bush II, Trump. I’m so sorry. Many of us are working very hard to do better.

  4. Thanks Mr. Trump for assigning Mr Hoekstra. He certainly made an excellent start. Does anyone believe his apology ? Of course not. He should be ashamed of himself.
