Fake facts and alternative news

One presumes – falsely – that the current US president and his team and his government and his administration and all his advisors and family members …. Well, one presumes these past nearly 50 days in office, might have been a rather steep learning curve for them?

Apparently: No! Not at all!

After the latest attempt at getting folks interested in anything but the real facts and latest revelations concerning Russia and the US president, his team, his government, his administration, his advisors and family members … This was a whole weekend and yesterday, spent LOL the moment anybody brought up the latest claims. The obviously false claim – and thus not covered previously by media – that former President Obama had the Trump Tower wired.

This is no longer an unhinged US president accusing his predecessor.
This is a totally derailed president and administration.

No evidence and even the folks who should be in the known and should have given permission – denying the fake facts and alternative news.

What next? Well: the learning curve does not go up.
More accusations, including a mega-example of false fact spinning by the current president.

Now former President Obama stands accused of releasing over 122 Guantanamo Bay prisoners. Easy fact check: 113 of them were released by George W Bush. Only nine of them were transferred out by Mr Obama. Of the 122, 30 have been killed and 25 captured. The DNI says 67 remain at large.

Insanity: doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. The only problem for the rest of the world? The man, his government, his advisors remain at large.
