Fake news galvanized US president-elect Donald Trump's supporters
Surely, it couldn't have been all of the FACTUAL information obtained from Hillary's email server, and the DNC's and Podesta's hacked accounts that "galvanized" the Trump supporters. And, of course, it couldn't have been Hillary's march toward globalization and the further degrading of US sovereignty. No, it was the FAKE NEWS boogeyman. OOoohhhh!
Here's a clue: Trump won the presidency because of the continued efforts of the leftist media to muddy the waters with lies, and play interference for Hillary. Welp, we don't like being lied to, and it was apparent where the lies were coming from and who they were meant to benefit. So, on election day, we said "FUCK YOU!" to the liars. We said "Fuck you" to the perpetually scandalous Hillary, and we said "FUCK OFF" to the infantile, shrill, triggered little assholes that continue to plague the streets in protest of the process they claim to support.
And now, as we repeatedly hear the drums of "fake news" and "hate speech" beat to the rhythm of the same lying lefty news orgs, we see it for what it is: an attempt to silence the voice of opposition. Racism, hate, white supremacy... it's so sad that these words have lost all meaning. These words call out ugly ideals and behavior, but the klaxon blowhards of the left have been crying wolf for too long. Now, it's time to eat crow, motherfuckers.
the most powerful nation on the planet is just a bully who refuses to cooperate with anyone else
Really. We just bully and never cooperate. So, we're not a member of the UN or NATO. We never render aid to countries for disaster relief, epidemic or poverty. We never come to the defense of any of our allies -- hell, we don't have any allies. Right?
Your assertion is just ridiculous, and indicative of the typical kind of ignorant dumbass who never has ANYTHING good to say about the US. You need to start getting news from some place other than the gawker sites or huffpo. Try an international news outlet for a change.
most immediately the new global recession you've just triggered.
Hardly our fault if the rest of the world wants to throw a hissy fit because the non-globalist candidate won.
