The Fake News About Fake News!

Extra points if you can identify every last one of those lying journalists!

Why anyone believes the news media would bother making up negative stories about Donald Trump, when it would just be so much easier to just reprint his tweets all day long (which they also do) is beyond me. After all, Trump seems to have gotten pretty much all of his cabinet and staff to lie for him (even though when Trump self destructs, their political careers will be so completely dead forever).

    My guess, left to right:

    Wolf Blitzer, Chris Mathews, Andrea Mitchel?, Jake Tapper, Glen Thrush??, Rachel Meadow?, Chuck Todd.

    Kudos to Hassan. Those were the same names I had. I actually struggled the most with Tapper because his face is so nondescript. I think he is also normally a lot more smug than he looks here.

    Here’s another negative story. About him over promising over and over and over https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-06-06/in-trump-s-white-house-everything-s-coming-in-two-weeks

    I continue to be baffled that his approval rating is above 30

    Jonah, it could be that a third of the population can’t remember beyond two weeks.

    I ran into two fans of Trump over the past week. One still spouts ‘Give him a chance.’ The other only said ‘God works in mysterious ways.’

    Sometimes I don’t know where to begin.

    Dave, maybe it’s the lead in our drinking water. And I’m not exactly kidding when I say that. Someone needs to do some checking to see how people vote compared to the lead levels in their water.

    Hassan, Glen Thrush? Who is that and how have I missed him, wherever he is?

    Thanks Hassan. I’m not sure how he avoided appearing on my radar, but he did.

    IK, thanks for the reminder. I am having problems with my memory, (leaded water maybe?), and I had forgotten that discussion. Perhaps because the idea is really scary.
