    Everyone should listen to a few hours of rush and Hannity and see what a warped view of reality they present. They have brainwashed 35% of the American population. They feed their hatrid bigotry and fear and in so doing they follow them like the pied piper getting filthy rich in the process.
    That must be why their ratings tanked to the lowest viewed cable news provider in the industry falling under the Cartoon channel and Nickelodeon.
    Whoops, my bad, that was CNN. Never mind

    People make decisions based on what they believe to be true.

    If the info they have is fake they can make bad or wrong decisions.


    If the person doesn't stay up to date with new developments they can make bad decisions.

    If their own calculations are part of their decision making but they have bad knowledge, bad advice or bad judgment they can make bad decisions.
    Babalu, I cannot believe that you did this OP, being a Trump supporter.

    You are 100% right in your OP but that makes Trump 100% wrong. You are proving to be an incompetent-for-Trump supporter.

    Fake news is wrong, for sure, but then explain why you support Trump if:

    President Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims over 993 days

    There is no liberal Rush Limbaugh, Sham Hammity, Glen Beck, or Mark Levin.

    Why not?

    The Left has certainly tried.

    Could it be because the entire media is Left Wing and the idea AND the execution of Left Wing radio produces yawns?

    Fake news is wrong, for sure, but then explain why you support Trump if:
    Because the Fake News has overplayed their "Trump as liar" shtick.

    The public has come to understand that he is a promoter and he always tries to present the best or most optimal picture of things he likes and wants other to like.

    Like how a guy courts a girl.

    Not really lies, but exaggerations.

    But if you are committed to destroying his Presidency, starting 19 minutes* after he was sworn in, you will look for as many exaggerations and anything else which you can ARGUE (but which will never be argued because there are so many of these bogus, piddly arse examples to bother with) is a lie that you can. And then when they number in the thousands you will be home free.

    There will be no one who will believe the truth in the face of sooooo many "lies." The only thing people will see and remember and repeat ad nauseum, are the wild numbers of lies.

    A thousand, A hundred thousand. A million.

    All BS.

    All Fake News.

    The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun

    The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway.

    At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at*ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org, spearheaded by two liberal advocacy groups aiming to lay the groundwork for his eventual ejection from the White House.
    The organizers behind the campaign,*Free Speech for People*and*RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office. Ethics experts*have warned*that his financial holdings could potentially lead to constitutional violations and undermine public faith in his decision-making.

    Their effort is early, strategists admit. But they insist it is not premature —*even if it triggers an angry backlash from those who will argue that they are not giving the new president a chance.

    You are unqualified to opine on this subject until you are able to prove you know BOTH sides of the matter.

    You are most likely a half wit.

    A 50% er.

    You only know HALF the Trump story.

    You likely only know the BAD half.

    The bad half is the only thing the MSM or FAKE NEWS vendors tell you.

    Prove that you know why the Right LOVES Trump and then your opinion will have some weight.

    But until then, youi dont know what you are talking about.
