Trump Says " Fake news, folks,”

“Fake news, folks,” Mr. Trump said. “Fake news. A typical New York Times fake story.”

The face of the demagogue

Trump's response to New York Times reporting on his apparently ordered the firing of the Special Counsel Bob Mueller, last summer. The Times reports the order was countered by the White House Attorney, McGahn, who as the US government is structured works for the nation, not Trump.

Of course, Right Wing propagandists circled the wagons around Trump and promulgated a far-fetched "secret society" story based on missing text messages and a non-verified Times piece. 

While McGahn dismissed the story with a "no comment" (an actual admission), the story reached key Trump information purveyors such as Wisconsin's Ron Johnson and, yes, Fox News (in a big way).

Fox News's number one Trump trumpeter, Sean Hannity, took his position against the story and as is often the case with Hannity was forced to back off his on-camera lies during a broadcast. Watch Hannity's face at the 33-second mark of the 46-second video. The face is a person caught with a lie back-firing within a matter minutes.

The New York Times, Michael Schmidt's, piece is worth a quick read.  As you read through the piece, ask yourself: "When will the carnival end?"  Isn't it obvious the ticket you purchase for the Trump tent is filled with false reality?
