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’

– je liegt iets
– daarover lieg je
– de confrontatie noem je een leugen
– waarover je weer liegt

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?
