Trump is fake. All this “Fake News” horse hockey started when the Office was hijacked. It is all this manchild has known. The problem is Illinformed, emotionally retarded, unable to think for themselves, voters who have been swayed by snake oil selling charlatans. Vote. Vote Republicans out. Vote Democrat. Getting the poop in a group means rounding up the politicians who are feckless, and replacing them with real humans.

Most of the fake news comes directly from the White House. Between trump and that puppet who appears every day in front of the press, it's hard to keep up with all the lies.

I noted virtually all of Trump's "awards" were for mistakes made, corrected or retracted, and apologized for. Mistakes are not "fake news", especially not when noted and corrected. Everyone makes mistakes.
*
On the other hand, Trump has been documented as lying over 2000 times in his first year with zero corrections, retractions, or apologies. This is the true "fake news".
*
The author says it perfectly: " The idea is to give core supporters an excuse to disregard damaging stories." No doubt we will be hearing from them in this comments section today, making the welkin ring with the shrieks of denial.
