2. There is a FB meme

going around about 2 Syrian refugees raping a guy's daughter. Now the Dad can go to death row for killing them.

110% false.

Why won't it stop being repeated. Because it feeds into the bigotry and prejudices of the people who share it. There are some that will not fact check it, but forward it. There are some who will fact check it, find out it is a lie and forward it anyhow. In their mind they think it COULD be true at some point in the next 100 years, so who cares.

How does this relate to the OP.

Trump doesn't care if it is true or not, it just has to sound that it might be true at some point in the future. Intellectually lazy, his belief system doesn't need to based in facts. He has the followers to prove it.
