Another Fake Hate Crime

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana college student has acknowledged she fabricated a report that she was assaulted and robbed of her wallet and Muslim headscarf by two men, one of whom she described as wearing a white "Trump" hat, police said Thursday.
The Lafayette Police Department said in a statement that it is no longer investigating the 18-year-old woman's claims, which were made within hours of Donald Trump's presidential victory.
Police said the student told investigators she was walking near the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's campus Wednesday morning when she was accosted by two white men who drove up in a gray sedan. Police added the student had claimed the men shouted racial obscenities as they knocked her down and stole her wallet and the headscarf, known as a hijab.

Fake but true.
Now, what "racial obscenities" did they shout at her? If the robbery were real, she could actually quote the obscenities. If she's just making it all up, there is no detail by which the parts of her story could be expanded and given lifr.
