Former POTUS Trump Thread

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I don't think "the democrats" had anything to do with the coinage of fake news. it was a term used in the media in a few stories shortly after the election to classify the actual fraudulent news that circulated on facebook, twitter, and phony websites. the term was immediately turned around by the alt-right and infowars





then it made its way to Hannity



and then DJT started using it shortly thereafter

a big pet peeve I have these days is when people adopt this as a joke phrase or try to turn it around on Republicans.

That was poorly worded. I should've said lies Trump was spreading from Breitbart, etc.

oh hell yeah
nitpicking here because CN is great but the generation obsession one annoyed me at times because they conceded that yes, boomers actually are a defined demographic more than any other age group, and yes, they have more power and money than any other groups...but then proceeded to act like it was meaningless like every other age group anyway. also, adam conover is kinda annoying
