    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...ation-facebook

    It goes on to describe a network of facebook pages, fake news sites, and real news sites this guy uses to generate clicks from gullible Trump supporters.

    This guy is not on your side, he's taking advantage of you, just like Trump is... They see how easily manipulated you are, and they jump on it. This should really make you stop and examine your lives.
    So...let me get this right, eh?

    Buzzfeed, a site that depends on ad revenue to survive, runs a dishonest hit piece on Trump...citing unverified information from a dossier that someone...who was ultimately paid by the Hillary campaign...provided them. But now, Buzzfeed is running a hit piece about another person doing essentially the same thing they do.

    Sounds like a kettle/pot thing to me.

    I'm thinking Buzzfeed is taking advantage of their readers so they can make a pile of money in ad revenue. If you are a reader of Buzzfeed, this should really make you stop and examine your lives.

    I'm sure you gave. Congrats on being 1 of the gullible.
    If money is donated to fund a project, the wall in this case, it's Congress' duty to spend the money on that project.

    No....

    And LOL at 'it's Congress's duty part'..

    Face it you got scammed, not surprising though given your a Trump fan.

    I am not for higher taxes just allocating our taxes better. I'd rather have millions of kids fed and better educated than another couple billion to be lost in Iraq but that's just my bleeding heart talking.

    I don't support the wall so I wouldn't voluntarily donate my own money. You do support the wall but refuse to answer if you have donated any of your own money or the reasons you wouldn't if you didn't. I won't force you to answer and could never know one way or another anyway but it's kind of telling how you did answer when asked.

    All that he needs to do is show where that money went to....but from the article it looks bad.

    Geez, start looking into some of the people and other things referenced in that article and you quickly find yourself down in a rabbit hole, far from any air, sunlight or sanity.

    I'm glad I don't do FB.
