4chan Claims It Invented the Trump Golden Showers Story

This is getting really weird.

The forum alleged an anonymous user invented Tuesday’s bombshell about Donald Trump and Russian prostitutes—and then passed it onto a Republican operative. But there’s a weak stream of proof.

From the dailybeast:

So much misinformation!

Deplorables are manipulating the news

Like most of you, I have been clicking away for the past two hours trying to find everything I can about the goldenshowergate. @realdonaldtrump's initial tweet after the news broke included a "reliable" source that discredited the story. Someone found it for him on a no name media site called "lifezette". If you google "trump" or "golden showers" or anything to do with the story now, one of the first articles to appear is the one from "lifezette". This means that who knows how many thousands of people have clicked on the site that appeared in tRump's original tweet and got the "lifezette" article uprated in order to compete with the real news stories.

Please do not click on or search for this bogus article from "lifezette". It is an obvious attempt to push fake news.

"What's the Big Deal?" Trump supporters don't care about Russian interference

From the NYT at: http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/07/us/russia-hacking-election-trump-voters.html

This article describes the response that many Trump supporters have in regard to the U.S. intelligence release on Thursday. Pretty incredible what they think.

COVINGTON, La. — “Sour grapes,” explained Bob Marino, 79, weighing in on the recent spycraft bombshell from the corner table of a local McDonald’s.

“Sour grapes,” agreed Roger Noel, 65, sitting next to him.

“Bunch of crybabies,” Reed Guidry, 64, offered from across the table.

“From the parts of the report I’ve seen,” said Rob Maness, a retired Air Force colonel who twice ran for Senate here as Tea Party favorite, “it seems silly.”

“I don’t believe it,” Mr. Yates, 78, said flatly of the intelligence report. He was standing in the yard under his “Make America Great Again” flag, which he bought at a gun show several months ago. “Why would Putin even want Trump?”

But Mr. Yates then added: “Why is everybody so afraid of Russia? I’m not against Putin.”

In Louisiana, David Gubert, 56, chain-smoked Eagle 20 cigarettes in the cab of his pickup, with stacks of firewood for sale behind him in the bed. Like the Willises, he ruminated on what it would mean if the Russians had gotten involved, and possibly even swung the election.

But Mr. Gubert came to a different conclusion.

“If that’s what it took,” he said, “I’m glad they did it.”

This last response is the most insane, but I'm pretty sure it's common among Trump supporters. It's ok if you feel completely sickened by the article. I know I am.

SCOTUS: Invalidate Election Petition

Source: We the People

SCOTUS must recognize and address the CIA conclusion as presented by The Washington Post that Russia interfered with the 2016 general election in an effort to help Donald Trump win the White House. The election results cannot be trusted and should be invalidated. SCOTUS should declare that President Obama remain as the chief executive until new election results are certified and all appropriate actions are taken for a smooth inaugural transition. SCOTUS must order each state to hold a new election, without exception. Governors and any other state officials shall not be allowed to deny voters a second opportunity to vote after a foreign government tampered with the U.S. Elections and possibly changed the outcome for one candidate. Ballots must have a paper trail to insure result integrity.
