The real "fake news"

Enough is enough of this president talking about "fake news" and the "dishonest media."

Let's start with his statement of "thousands and thousands" of Muslims cheered as the World Trade Center Towers burned. A lie! Never happened. Let's go to his assertion of having the largest inauguration crowd ever. A lie, disproven by aerial photos. Next, he claims he would have won the popular vote had not millions voted illegally (and amazingly, all for Hillary Clinton). No proof of any such fraud. A lie. How about President Obama tapping his phones? A total lie.

Next the "River of Blood" plaque at one of his golf courses honoring a Civil War battle that never occurred. Totally fake! How about the Gen. Pershing story about killing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig's blood? According to historians, nothing like this never happened. Totally fake. How about his claims of the "failing New York Times," how CNN and MSNBC are losing viewers when in fact, the subscribership and viewership are way up?

And the very definition of "fake news," the fact the he had fake Time magazine covers of himself placed in all of his golf course clubhouses.

The biggest fake of all is that this narcissistic, pathological lying sociopath is still supported by a little more than a third of the American people.
