A Poll Says 50% Believe Trump's Fake News Claims. What Do They Think the Real News Would Say about Him?

Donald Trump may have done his job too well with his incessant complaints about how badly the news media treats him. But what's the true story, and where would we find it?

The picture above contradicts everything that Trump claims. The key network Trump cites as true is Fox News, and yet here is Fox News helping the president dish up fake news, since Obamacare is clearly not dead, it's the law of the land.

What more is there to say?

Still, TPM has more:
The Politico poll, published Wednesday, found that nearly 50 percent of Americans do, in fact, think that the media fabricates stories about Trump and his administration, while 37 percent don’t. Republicans are more suspicious of the media than any other group, with 76 percent saying they believe in fake news. The group’s distrust of the news is not particularly surprising as the party’s leader, Trump, spends so much time criticizing the media.
Only one in five Democrats have bought into Trump’s media outrage, but 44 percent of independents think the media is making up stories.
50 percent. Think about that. Half of Americans don't believe the news. The question remains: What do they believe? And where do they find it?

Americans favor Democrats for Congress in 2018 by 14 points. That's big. How did they decide that? A significant majority of Americans don't trust Trump on most things, and 57 percent have an unfavorable impression of him. What makes them think so?

Of course, Trump's answer is and has always been that the polls are fake news. That will be his answer until he's history. And that history will say he was unbelievably bad. What will that be, fake history? Yes, of course it will be. Everyone always lies about Trump. We all know that. Just ask Trump.

The truth is actually ????

George Orwell said it best: "To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle."

Poor Trump. Everyone is always lying about him. Everyone knows that.

Note. John McCain, Bob Corker, Susan Collins, and Jeff Flake don't like Trump. Are these Republican senators spouting fake news?
