In this May 25, 2017, file photo, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg delivers the commencement address at Harvard University commencement exercises in Cambridge, Mass.

Under growing public pressure to reveal more about the spread of covert Russian propaganda on its site, Facebook said Thursday that it was turning over more than 3,000 Russia-linked ads to congressional committees investigating the Kremlin's influence during the 2016 presidential election.

So between this and the fake news Trump voters watched they voted the Russian Party line. Good Americans, voting after doing the responsible research? Not hardly!

Gee, the article left out Trump's tweet about this: President Trump dismissed the news on Twitter early Friday: "The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook."

Fake news, right, Donnie? You bet, facebook is spending the bucks to hire 250 more people and revamping how it handles ads because this is "fake news". You betcha. Anybody who buys that is willfully stupid.

"With his talk of "the democratic process," "foreign actors," and "election integrity...." This should be the talk of the leader of this country, if he weren't a Russian stooge, instead of the talk of a businessman.

23, Trump is no businessman, he's a con man.

Timber....the businessman who talked about "the democratic process," "foreign actors," and "election integrity" was Zuckerberg....Trump is neither businessman nor leader, as you point out, he is simply a con man and a grifter.

Noticed the ADG has removed this from the electronic front page, but they did leave the important stuff like the chicken pox story. LOL!

These are just the ads we've caught so far. We have no idea the extent to which Russian money and people campaigned for Trump. Putin's military is conducting exercises near the borders of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. He'll probably invade when the North Korea mess blows up.

23, have you noticed how quiet this thread is this morning? Wonder where all those Trump supporters are hiding?

Hey 23cal - He's also President of the United States, and I cannot stop smiling.

You sore losers are simply pathetic and dangerous to boot. President Trump defeated Hillary for a variety of reasons none having to do with social media propaganda. Hillary snatched defeat from the jaws of victory for many reasons. She called millions of good, honest people "deplorable". She was caught lying numerous times about her homebrew server and the handling of government documents. She ignored Wisconsin. She fell like a sack of potatoes into a van after a 9/11 ceremony. She lied about Benghazi. The list is quite extensive and none of it has to do with the meddling of a foreign government.
.
Putin's release of the Access Hollywood tape was thought to be enough to defeat Trump. Debbie Whatshername's corrupt IT guy and his family may be the true Russian connection. Make no mistake, if Putin meddled in the election he did it not really caring who won but to create the exact kind of turmoil that's now occurring. You libtwits are playing right into Putin's hand. What a bunch of morons.

There's only one reason Trump is in the WH: idiots are gullible.

Will Hillary now be adding another 3-5 chapters to her excuse book?
