As the world prayed for golf superstar Tiger Woods after a vehicle accident left him in the hospital, a CNN sports anchor used the moment to spread ugly rumors.
CNN sports anchor Andy Scholes said he was “not surprised” by what happened because “painkillers have become a part of his life.”
Hold on a second there CNN – there’s zero evidence that Tiger was impaired. In fact, the responding agency, LA County Sheriff, said just the opposite.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Woods, 45, was involved in a single-car accident on Tuesday morning after he hit the median, crossed multiple lanes of traffic, before hitting the curb, a tree, and ultimately flipping the vehicle multiple times, according to county Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Fire authorities had to extricate Woods from the vehicle. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who was the first on-scene.
“No evidence of impairment at this point in time,” Villanueva said during a Tuesday evening press conference. “The first contact was with the center median, and from there, then crossed into the opposing lane of traffic, hit the curb, hit a tree, and there were several rollovers during that process.”
In contrast to CNN’s nasty rumor-mongering, President Trump had a classy response. “Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!” Trump said in a quote shared on Twitter by his spokesman and adviser Jason Miller.
Woods has been known to golf with Trump, and has of course drawn fire from the liberal media for doing so.
