Trump 2020 Campaign Solicits Votes For “2017 King Of Fake News And Liberal Propaganda” Trophy

The Hill reports:

President Trump is asking his supporters to help him award a “Fake News Trophy.”

“Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension,” reads an email sent to supporters Thursday. “That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year.

“There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda,” it continues.

Axios notes that the email includes a list of nominees:

1. The ABC News story incorrectly claiming Trump ordered Michael Flynn to contact Russian officials while a candidate. He actually did this as president-elect. ABC has since corrected the story

2.The CNN story claiming Trump and Trump Jr. were given access to WikiLeaks documents. This was actually publicly available information, and CNN has corrected the story.

3. TIME reporting that a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. was removed from the Oval Office by Trump. TIME corrected that story, and the reporter apologized.

The email came from the “Trump Make America Great Again Committee,” a joint project between the RNC and the Trump 2020 presidential campaign.

  • Bad Tom

    Who is the King of FAKE NEWS?
    Donald J Trump

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Well, … his master Putin must be a close second.

      • Oh’behr in Minnesota

        Yes, but Trump is such a pushy bottom !

    • Gregory B

      Bad Tom you beat me to it !! Trump would be pissed if anyone but himself won it.

    • Todd20036

      Fox “news”

      Fake news does not mean reporting something that is incorrect and correcting/apologizing later.

      Fake news is reporting something incorrect and claiming it’s right even when confronted with proof that it’s incorrect.

      You want fake news? How about Kellyanne claiming that Trump’s inauguration crowd is the biggest as an “alternate truth”?

    • BlackGayVeganAtheist

      Trump and his supporters WANT and NEED to be entertained more than educated and liberated. In truth this is all Trump can offer them is self serving, grandiose and ill mannered entertainment.

      Trump’s one mediocre accomplishment is a transparent and divisive reality show that was so far from reality which now extends itself into the Office of the President.

      Many of Trump supporters are so far below in life nothing he can do can really hurt them or at least that is what they think. Those with higher income brackets will take the tax breaks but want NOTHING to do with this loud mouth fool.

    • (((GC)))

      “Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension.”

      Projection.

      You, Mr. Trump, are a major perpetrator of the problem. RESIGN. Now.

        “A” major perp? Please. He is THE major perp. The biggest, the best, using the best plans because he’s like a smart person. Ask anybody. He’s the only one who can lay claim to this, believe me.

        • Nowhereman

          Yes. He said that he was “like” a smart person, not that he actually was a smart person.

      • Nowhereman

        He forgot his trademark “believe me!”, maybe because he knows that it’s true. Americans ARE sick and tired of being lied to. It’s just not the Americans that he THINKS are sick and tired.

      I forgot this point in basic high school civics, (because nobody ever thought it would be relevant): What happens if both Trump and Pence get locked up for crimes? Does that mean Paul Ryan is president? Note to self: Buy more razor blades….

      • Steverino

        Yep. Unless they don’t get thrown out of office and imprisoned until the Dems regain the House next November, and thus Nancy Pelosi (or whomever might take her place as Dem Speaker) becomes president.
        : )

        • Skeptical_Inquirer

          Pelosi as Pres. Now I do think she’s way too easy on the GOPers and sees them as human when she so shouldn’t but yeah, I’m on board for that turn of events. We’d also finally have a woman President which would make so many conservative men & WOMEN stroke out.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        And it also depends on whether or not he gets dragged down by the investigation or is all “I’m OUT!” and pulls a Boehner.

        • Steverino

          I Don’t think “Mother” would let Pence pull a Boner…

      • Uncle Mark

        Only buy more razor blades, if you’re going to affix them to the baseball bats we’ll dispay as a warning to the traitors and despots, who’ve sold out this country.

    • David Walker

      I know it’s too much to ask, but why can’t they just come clean, all of them? I know the fucking moron and junior can’t because of brain trouble (it appears the fucking moron doesn’t have one and junior inherited that), and the besotted Bannon can’t because he hasn’t achieved world domination yet, and Mitch Ryan can’t because it wouldn’t play well with their “investors,” and the whole thing would be an admission that every one of them knew they could play the ignorance, racism, and hate of “the base.” It would just be so fucking refreshing for the gigantic majority of us who try to play by the rules and try to help each other to see our failed leaders admit to their guilt.

      • Oh’behr in Minnesota

        I hear the ball washer, the green and the fairway have onboard wi-fi (it’s just minature golf Trump is playing anyway. He has a double or the Secret Service playing the long courses for him. I hear he had golf balls with onboard wi-fi. Golf club with onboard wi-fi. Even the caddy’s shirt has onboard wi-fi so Trump is always connected to Fauxian noise. (Or InfoWarz, BreitMartians, etc.).

  • Judas Peckerwood

    There can be only one.

  • ClevelandJim

    And someday, in the future, when all of this scary insanity is over, and all this alternate-reality bullshit it put in proper perspective, will his supporters find themselves feeling like the Hitler-adoring Germans after WWII, when all the manipulation was uncovered–despondent, lied to, humiliated, embarrassed and shamed?

    • Steverino

      Naw, they will just double-down, as usual. They have no shame, unlike the formerly Nazi-adoring Germans.

      • ClevelandJim

        I doubt the Naz-adoring Germans had any shame either, prior to Nuremburg. There’s a lot of similarity between the two groups–people who didn’t want to have to use intellect when it’s so much easier to denigrate another group in order to feel superior and ok with their status in life.

    • Uncle Mark

      Not the best time for them to be saying “ok, now this is how I see things working best.”

      • vorpal

        Or, at the very least, they (and all candidates, for that matter) should have to pass a psychiatric evaluation before a hopefully impartial panel of psychiatrists.

        There’s no way Trump would have been able to make it through that.

          That reminds me of one of my favorite “gunnuts doing stupid stuff” videos, the one about the guy who blows up some tannerite that he attached to a lawn mower with his rifle. He kept getting closer and closer to it because he was having a hard time hitting it. When he finally succeeded, he had blown off one of his legs with the shrapnel from the mower.

            What is “normal” behavior seems to vary depending on whether you are a man or a woman, where you grew up, education level, etc., etc. While some men seem “normal” to women, some appear to be different creatures altogether. It’s just… baffling. I mean, how could ANYONE think that firing a bottle rocket out of their ass would be “funny,” not to mention laughing at the results! (And we won’t even get into the ass fixation that some guys seem to have.)

    How about a Fake Book award? Simon & Schuster offered Milo Yappypoodle $255,000 advance and got a manuscript from the Bulwer-Lytton school.

    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/dec/28/unclear-unfunny-delete-editors-notes-on-milo-yiannopoulos-book-revealed

    The tone is set in notes on the prologue to the manuscript. Ivers writes to Yiannopoulos: “Throughout the book, your best points seem to be lost in a sea of self-aggrandizement and scattershot thinking,” and adds: “Careful that the egotistical boasting … doesn’t make you seem juvenile.”

    “Add something like this – only less self-serving” reads another comment early in the manuscript.

Plus it’s supposed to run from the airport to Jerusalem to the Great Wall so rich people can avoid the hoi polloi. Dammit. Class at work again.

      Gaslighting indeed: not just lying but manipulating us, trying to discredit our own memories, our own eyes and ears, and actual evidence such as video records. “Who do you trust, me or your lying eyes?”

      Amy Siskind pointed out that Popular Vote Loser’s campaign manager, then counselor, gives tRump supporters permission to not believe our own eyes, ears, and minds: “He wasn’t really mocking the disabled reporter, he didn’t really mean this or that when he said it.”

          • billbear1961

            It should be a MAJOR story by every serious news outlet that the POTUS is a proven and relentless pathological LIAR. That it is not is a DAMNING indictment of the U.S. press. (One would hope that foreign media in TRUE democracies would lead the way if their American colleagues are too cowardly, complicit with the right, or frightened of their corporate bosses to do so!)

            But for a quarter of a CENTURY neither the serious media nor the Democratic party–nor the public–has shown any significant concern about the right’s media LIE machine, either. It SHOULD be the subject of relentless and SCATHING exposés by every serious publication and on-air news and information program in the country. Instead, they behave as if standing up for the truth and facts–in defense of genuine democracy–were a BIASED act, when it’s as far from a biased or prejudiced act as one can get, AND it the MAIN job of any TRUE journalist.

            LIES and the refusal to stand up strongly against them–the refusal to go on the ATTACK, relentlessly and without mercy, against liars with the PROOF they are lying–is the main reason democracy hangs by a thread in the U.S.

          • Boreal

            Nope. Watch for the media to breathlessly report on every one of tRump’s lies to discredit Mueller soon rather than the facts in the case.

          • billbear1961

            It’s what they’ll do–what they ARE doing.

            They’re a DISGRACE.

            And, when democracy is DEAD in this country, the two-faced WHORES, in whose mouths butter won’t melt, will, with straight faces, and crocodile tears, lament: “Oh, how, HOW did this come to pass in the U.S.?”

        Honestly, the heat’s been running constantly for three days, I’ve been uncomfortably hot for three days. It’s now down to 19 degrees out there.

        • Is she paying for your heating bills? If not, I’d push back hard about her refusing to even put on a long sleeve shirt. This is ridiculous, my friend.

          • Treant

      • Treant

        Although it turns out that means it was 28.3 C in my office at the peak.

    • Lars Littlefield

      That’s only 17 to 20 below F. I lived at Brighton, Utah for many years before moving here to San Juan County. From November to late March it regularly got between 40 – 50 F below 0. During the day it would usually jump up to 22 F below 0. So, the cold factor seems normal to me. The coldest I’ve ever been was for several days in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They stopped the ski lifts because too many people were getting harsh, life-threatening frost bite (fingers, toes, noses an lips). The silver Dollar Bar was full of people with bandaged hands and blackened lips. Although, I did spend a couple of sunny days in St. Paul ten years ago where it was impossible to go out of doors for longer than it took to get from your house to warm up your car. The sun light was deceiving.

      It’s predicted to be 26 F tomorrow. That’s still walking around in shorts weather for most of us rugged red rock dwellers. 🙂

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Well, it’s still early season. The temp is going go to down even more next month. Forecasts do put it at around -60 and lower in Edmonton, Ottawa and further north. Ottawa will probably hit -40/50F. Point being, it’s a cold country we live in and we revel in it.

        And yes, the sun being out is incredibly deceptive.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Ah, yes. Lovely Edmonton: where chimney smoke escapes horizontally.

          I’ve never understood complaining about the weather. But then, I’ve never suffered a major flood. I rather miss not living in Brighton, Ut. Nice neighbors and the ski lifts were within walking distance of my front door. in 1982 we had 888+ inches of total snowfall. It still ranks as the best year of skiing in my entire life. My Jeep remained covered in snow until it melted. 🙂

          • Karl Dubhe 2

            I used to ride thru Edmonton winters on my mountain bike. Then I broke my back while riding the bike one summer, and haven’t ridden in winter since. 🙁

      It started to tilt and they condemned it. So much for the leaning tower of penis.

      He’s in transit. Back from Flaaahrida…

    Joe’s not here. Who wants to write dirty Limericks on the chalkboard?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      How about out-of-context editors’ notes to Milo?

    • greenmanTN

      I would, but the Nantucket HOA bylaws forbid it.

      There was once a fellow named Joe
      who did seven guys in a row,
      then told number eight:
      “For today you´re late …
      if you want you may nibble my toe.”

    • coram nobis

      There once was a fellow named Milo
      Who lived his lifestyle on the high-low
      Till his editors slashed
      His manuscript crashed
      And he was last seen climbing the silo

        Damn you’re clever!

        Someone should needlepoint that for Whatshisopolous on an 11 year old’s t-shirt.

      When Joe comes marching home again?

      • fuzzybits

        Not sure ,where did he go?

        • Cuberly Deux

          He mentioned he’s on the road for a bit. But he will be back.

          • fuzzybits

            Ah,I’ve been out enjoying the arctic weather. Not!

          • Cuberly Deux

            Sounds like it’s been quite the deep freeze out there.

      An image exactly one man on the planet can appreciate.

    Donald is now tweeting about China and North Korea oil transfers.

    He would have done better to continue his border incidents on Twitter with Vanity Fair.

  • Nowhereman

    Oh what can possibly go wrong?…
    Seriously, he can’t hear himself when he speaks. Either that or he has convinced himself that what he spews is real.

    So, someone’s handing Comrade Cheetos a mirror?

    “Trump 2020 Campaign Solicits Votes For ‘2017 King Of Fake News And Liberal Propaganda’ Trophy”

    Pot, meet Kettle.

  • Gianni

    Good thing it’s not the current World’s Most Prolific Liar award, Donnie. You’d have to give it to yourself. No one else comes close.

  • Franciscan

    I think the award should be divided into two parts: King of Fake News (Trump wins handily) and Best Propaganda awards. The second part would be more competitive.

  • M Jackson

    That’s a badge of honor if I’ve ever seen one.
