White House Officials Sacked For Buying President Donald Trump The Wrong Bagels Is Fake News

White House officials being sacked for buying President Donald Trump the wrong bagels is fake news. There is no truth that three staffers in Trump’s administration were fired for having purchased the president the wrong type of bagels that he likes. Where did the fake news originate?

Real News Right Now published the fake news article reporting that a leaked memo revealed that three White House officials had been let go because they brought the wrong bagels for Trump. The fake news article cited an alleged memo obtained by The New York Times. You can read the fake news below:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Three senior administration officials have lost their jobs in recent weeks over a “total and complete failure” to consistently provide President Donald J. Trump with his preferred type of morning bagels, according to an internal White House memo obtained by The New York Times.

The memo, which sheds light on the extent of Mr. Trump’s “borderline obsession” with bagels, is one of seven documents leaked by anonymous administration officials this week. “One dozen plain bagels are to be hand-delivered to the Oval Office no later than 7:45 a.m. Monday through Friday,” states a January 28 memorandum by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. “It is imperative that you check, check, and recheck to ensure you have the correct bagels as POTUS does not tolerate mistakes,” Priebus wrote.

However, there is no truth to the above story, according to Hoax Alert. A quick search of The New York Times website for the words “Trump Bagels” returns no relevant results.

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
