Real Fake News:

#1 Post by j.p. » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:38 am

Stormy Daniels and Russian Golden Showers.

Both happened for sure.

Q.Why is it fake ?
A. Because it is not news. Everybody knew that Trump was capable of this kind of stuff going in to the election. Including Melania. Trump is an admitted, though unrepentent, philanderer and adulterer. Been that way his whole public life.

But, whatever. As long as those two things were consensual, I don't care.

How's this for some fake news: Trump behind in 2020 polls, even though he has no opposing candidate. This is from USA Today.

On the USA Today sitemap is was listed under 'news' not the 'opinion' section. Fake News!

What's fake ? The respondants were fake people ? Maybe they gave fake responses ? We're the pollsters fake people ? 2020 really not an election year ?

Seems like the Trumpers we have created a new variant of Godwin's Law.

Do we need to review the 2016 numbers where Hillary was 99% going to win according to polls. And how did Hitler get into this?

Were they "fake" or "wrong"
Pretty big difference

Hillary did win the popular vote. Everthing fell exactly as the polls "predicted" but WI, MI or PA. And not by substantial margins

Fake. The election is in 2020.
Thank gawd for the more sensible Electoral College.
