Shut off the fake news!

Norma Winson-Jones, are you feeling feverish? You are showing all the symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome. You really ought to take better care of yourself and shut off that fake news. A good healthy dose of independent journalism is what you need. The kind that gives fair and balanced reporting without big corporate bosses to please.

Sadly, those suffering from TDS are unable to do critical thinking, which is why it is it so difficult to treat. Again and again they return to mainstream media looking for comfort but that only makes things worse. I have no doubt, Norma that you HAVE heard so many lies that you’ve lost count, but try to remain calm because it’s just fake news. If one follows a healthy regimen of alternate news sources (and I’m not talking about Alex Jones) a much clearer picture of reality emerges.

Fake news blames Trump for separating illegal immigrant children from their parents but in alternate news, we hear that it was actually Obama’s policy and when Trump found out, he stopped it.

Fake news blames Trump for Russian collusion. Are they trying to distract from Hillary’s uranium deal with the Russians that enriched the Clinton Foundation during the Obama regime?

Fake news calls Trump a racist because he wants to build a wall to stop the trafficking of guns, drugs, children and a flood of illegal immigrants passing through their southern border. Canada wouldn’t allow that on it’s borders, so does that make us all racist too?

Fake news calls Trump a womanizer because MAYBE he had an extramarital affair BEFORE he was even in office! But what about Hillary’s husband who was doing it in the Oval Office when HE was president?

I find it Hillaryous how fake news gets everyone frothing at the mouth every time they hear Trump’s name. Deep state shills have polluted a lot of alternate news as well, so it is challenging indeed to discern the truth. However, when we see that the big media corporations were clearly rooting for Hillary during the election, when they were supposed to remain neutral and unbiased, how can we trust anything THEY report?
