It’s hard to make the argument that Donald Trump isn’t an irresponsible jackass. Even his most ardent supporters have an extremely difficult time making a credible argument against it. Trump’s fake news mantra has caught on like wildfire, his merry band of deplorables eat it like candy. So much so that a man credibly accused of being a pedophile is successfully running for senate.
Much scarier that that though, is how this disease and fad is catching on with other dictators & authoritarians around the globe. People in those countries don’t have the same media and internet access that we have in the United States, so it’s a much scarier proposition that they are now less informed & less likely to believe the news. Just another example of how Trump has made our a much less safer place.
This is a great article from Politico on this frightening trend.
