Begone, foul beast!

We all reach a point where we just can't take any more. I am well past that on several fronts, but one more than others.

“Fun Fact: You know who invented the term Fake News? Not Trump. It was Hitler. Look it up. Hitler loved to describe any newspaper that exposed him for what he was as Luegenpresse, which is German for Fake News.”

Trump can't help it. He is a pathological liar, and his ego is that fragile that he can't handle any negative coverage. I like what Fogel said, that "screaming fake news...is an intellectually dishonest and lazy copout." That describes Trump perfectly.

It's pathetic that 42 percent of Republicans, 17 percent of Democrats, and 26 percent of independents are so thoroughly faked out that they believe accurate stories are always fake news. It's bad enough that they can't handle the truth. They also believe the truth is always fake! Worse than pathetic, that's stark raving batsnort mad.

Fake news also is found in the form of click bait headlines such as those calling Palestinian terrorists "protestors". It's wise to be skeptical of any "news" in this day and time where so-called journalists admittedly slant stories. Consider it all fake until independently verified. What's wrong with that?

Hey Miss Brenda - You might want to add an addendum to his discussion on fake news considering the way many in the media lied about (FAKE NEWS) President Trump's comments on MS-13 gang members being "animals". Typical of purveyors of FAKE NEWS, many "news" outlets misrepresented the remarks as pertaining to illegal entrants into this country in general and not what was actually said. Sure would be nice to bury FAKE NEWS if only folks from CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, etc. would stop peddling it like a Walmart Blue Light Special.
