President Trump says “fake news” so often, it’s easy to forget he co-opted the term from reports about Russian bots on social media. Russia pushed actual falsehoods at Americans in 2016. Trump somehow distorted that story into an attack on CNN.
The Donald has savaged ABC too. But the network’s top comic Jimmy Kimmel is fighting back by showing just how fake the President’s stated “Christian” morals are.
In today’s clip (aired moments after Trump’s SOTU address) Kimmel cajoles former porn star Stormy Daniels into admitting that her “denial” of an alleged one-night-stand with Donald Trump is fake news. Daniels plays coy throughout the exclusive interview, perhaps due to a $130,000 non-disclosure agreement with Trump’s lawyers. But the late-night host points out that Daniels’ real signature is different than it looks on the denial published by Buzzfeed on Tuesday.
Is the document a hoax by Trump-team spinsters? Stormy’s reply (at the 1:52 mark) doesn’t leave much doubt.
