Trump Is Losing the 'Fake News' Debate


                                 Good Day World!

According to a Pentagon report, Trump wanted to increase our nuclear arsenal the first time he found out we were in the process of decreasing our nuke supply.

Everyone in the room heard him say it. That's called a fact.

But Donny doesn't like facts. I think we all know that by now. So he attacked NBC News for sharing the story with the public.

He said it was fake news. Then he threatened to pull the network's broadcasting license in another example of an assault on the First Amendment.

Trump has always attacked facts. To him, they are inconvenient reminders that he's lying about something again.   

Yesterday's twitter rant about NBC is another reminder that Trump is breaking away from his handlers in the West Wing. 

According to the Pentagon report, the whole staff was shocked when Trump suggested the U.S. needed to beef up it's nuclear stockpile, not decrease it.

One website chronicles Trump's lies since he took office. The last count was in August when The Washington Post documented 1,057 lies and misleading phrases.

Facts like this are crushing Trump's fake news narrative. It's like hearing someone cry wolf every day. After a while you realize that person lives in their own world.

To be sure, Trump has a core of followers who believe he's a working man's deity, and that he can say no wrong. They all happily set aside facts to show their loyalty to the former TV personality.

That leaves a majority of Americans who no longer believe a thing Trump says. The backlash against his lies and ability to lead the country is increasing among members of Congress.

Trump's latest attack against Senator Bob Corker has opened up a rift that will only increase with time. 

At one of Trump's campaign rallies last year he bragged that people would get tired of him "winning" all the time. Thus far all Trump has done is manage to lose every legislative fight he's picked.

Obamacare is still the law of the land. The possibility of Trump passing his huge and historic tax bill is pretty thin since he's managed to divide the Republicans in Congress.

Thanks to Trump's ego and stupidity, the world is laughing at our flawed leader. That's a loss, not a win situation.

The bottom line is Trump can claim anything written about him is fake news until he turns from orange, to blue, but people can see the Emperor has no clothes on.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
