I think, based on his usage, "fake news" means "News that paints me in a negative light".

Whoever gives him his daily orange spray tan is fake news.

Yes it's the Daily Show but Trevor has a point.  Donald Trump was "given" this information from someone he trusted to give him information and it was wrong.  Very very wrong.

How in the name of holy hell can we trust that he's being given anything valid when he isn't even given accurate facts about electoral votes?

Also that dumbass bit with the Jewish reporter, who was specifically all like "we don't think you're anti-semitic, we just want to hear your opinion on these anti-sem-" only for Trump to cut him off and go all bloated-ego narcissistic on him (as is the norm with him, I guess) and ramble about how "I am literally the least anti-everything person u ever dun met" and start whining about being oppressed and triggered and he's a beautiful sensitive snowflake people are being super mean to okay? Even though that wasn't what the guy was asking.

He really gets my gills sometimes.

So... Trump's administration just emailed me a survey.
(Well, all Trump supporters)


The Mainstream Media Accountability Survey.


http://rnctrack.hosted.strongview.com/t/echbaBAEuBAHZT8CJwWfaJTVbVKQEjaaaaTHKbBMKMVK6a?n=9@w8y7x8&X=Z5T9Y5H2E2_NFHBS.7VF&s=a&4=&k=7v8z80FflWpTFl1k2X53kc03qYj393w3w3oYFXFu&w3w




Yeah, I can tell this is gonna be a super unbaised survey... >_>

It's not even the bias that's the problem with that survey; it's the utter pointlessness of the questions. "Trump is awesome, right?" "The media sucks, right?" What kind of information do they expect to be gathering from this, and how is it going to be of any use?
ur retartet but u donut even no it and i walnut tell u y

It's not gathering information. It's forming a narrative by E-mailing a dumb internet poll to his supporters that can then be waved about as proof the people don't trust the crooked media. Since the media is the enemy and all that jazz. Then Trump feels vindicated and his ego is stoked.

Loaded Questions: The Poll

"Do you believe that the media wrongly attributes gun violence to Second Amendment rights?"

"Do you believe that the media has been far too quick to spread false stories about our movement?"

"Do you believe that the media purposely tries to divide Republicans against each other in order to help elect Democrats?"

"Do you believe that the mainstream media has been too eager to jump to conclusions about rumored stories?"

"Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?"

For fuck's sake.

Exactly.


He can (honestly) stand up and say "We surveyed a million people and most agreed that I am great and the media is evil."
And he won't let a little thing like bias get in the way.






That last one Trekky, I was like... "Uhhh... Republicans did.  Like last year.

"gonna accomplish" would've been a better choice of words.
