“Puerto Rico is an Island in the ocean, surrounded by water, a big ocean, and trucks can’t drive on it.” Donald Trump knows such things, he is not that stupid, but he has to explain these things to his base because they don’t know doodlysquat about much of anything other than which end the bullets come out of a gun. Oh, and what Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Alex Jones tell them.
Fake News – Any truth that Donald Trump does not like hearing.
Why does the Republican Base accept all his lies and fake news while saying the actual truth and the real news is fake?
For thousands of years Fake News has been the basis of all religions of the book, so it is no reach to move that to politics. Politics has become a religion for the Republican Base, if one believes a thing that is an obvious lie, it is not a lie, but rather an alternative fact.
