Again, Cheetolini makes no sense

He stands up there, screaming "fake news," when it's clear as day that he's lying, or doesn't know what he's talking about or both.

He screams about leaks coming out of his own administration. Well, aside from his tacit self-admittion of incompetence, any thinking person is only interested in whether those so-called leaks would stand up to the light of day or not.

If the leaks are true and they're corroborated by another source and reported as received, then they're not "fake" news.

Even if the leaks are just rumors and they're reported as rumors, then it still wouldn't make them "fake news." Gossip does not necessarily need to be "fake" by definition.

Since Trump's actions zigzag at any time, bereft of rhyme or reason in most cases, information will change by the minute. A simple change of circumstances doesn't make news "fake," as long it was valid at at the time it was relayed from the source.

I'm sure that any of you can come up with more examples of why the news isn't "fake."

But, in spite of all of that, there's one way the news could be "fake," and that's if the unquestioning Press becomes nothing more than the stenographer for a truth deficient Oval Office denizen, repeating that deluge of lies which emanate from his puckered pie hole.

FDT.

1. But think about Trump supporters for a minute.

A majority of Trump supporters:

think President Obama is a Muslim,
think President Obama was born in Africa,
think evolution is untrue,
think climate change is a hoax,
think Trump won a majority of votes and an unprecedented Electoral victory,
believe that FOX News is.......... news,


I could continue, but the information divide is appalling.

4. It was NOT?

What about the Creation Museum in Kentucky? Will you say that is also false?

3. You have a valid point.

Perhaps we should treat whether or not anyone believes him like a litmus test.

5. Agreed. Belief in Trump should be an indicator.

Is there an antidote?
