In an interview on MSNBC discussing the news conference yesterday, Michael Moore speaks of the “threat” against CNN. What threat? CNN is free to report fake news and Trump is free to ignore them and even kick them out of his press conference. It’s his press conference. Then Michael Moore says that Hillary won the election. Look at the heat map idiot. She won NY and California. She lost the rest of the country and the Electoral College.
Michael Moore proceeds to say that Trump is the godfather of this decade’s fake news. He uses the “birther” argument to “prove” this. Let me first point to the fact that Obama is untouchable. You can’t say one thing about Obama without being called a racist or a bigot… which is fake news folks. And now we have the term “birther”. So what is the term for people that said the war in Iraq was about oil or that 9-11 was secretly plotted by Bush? There was never a term. Because Bush wasn’t untouchable. He was the opposite of Obama, Bush was the whipping boy of the press.
Fake news is information spread to the general public not backed by facts, unsubstantiated, or backed by fake facts. Like the fake fact that Michael Moore uses that Trump “created the fake news” that Obama was not born in the United States. So let’s examine just that one “fact”.
It is not a well-known or remembered fact that Hillary Clinton supporters originated the birther accusation. In April of 2008, at the height of Hillary’s aggressive bid to run as the Democrat nominee an anonymous email circulated by supporters of Hillary Clinton that brought the allegation forward that Obama had not been born in Hawaii.
“Barack Obama’s mother was living in Kenya with his Arab-African father late in her pregnancy,” it said. “She was not allowed to travel by plane then, so Barack Obama was born there and his mother then took him to Hawaii to register his birth.”
Michael Moore’s report that Trump is the godfather of fake news is in fact fake news. Hillary Clinton supporters started it and challenged Obama’s birth record. It was a wise move. But that was back in 2008. It wasn’t until a month after Donald Trump’s direct challenge to Obama in 2011 that he had it released. The thing about Donald Trump is he produces results and that is the real threat to CNN and MSNBC that Michael Moore is talking about. Trump will not be bullied or berated by the liberal media. He has taken a lot of power from them which leaves them afraid.
