Josh Campbell tweeted a utopian picture of a Portland park this morning. In his post text he says "Portland is not under siege and buildings are not burning to the ground," gaslighting a whole nation with a whimsical statement about a breakfast burrito.
His statement comes after months on months of unrest in the streets of Portland. Twitter user @dailydigger19 posted a large set of videos detailing just how bad the situation is on the ground in the northwestern United States city.
An estimate of over 30 people have died during the "mostly peaceful" protests following the death of George Floyd. Protests quickly go from marches to riots that see looting, arson, and massive damage to public property, including black-owned businesses.
