Mr Warner said: “We know about the hacking, and selective leaks, but what really concerns me as a former tech guy is at least some reports – and we’ve got to get to the bottom of this – that there were upwards of a thousand internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect taking over a series of computers which are then called botnets, that can then generate news down to specific areas.
“It’s been reported to me, and we’ve got to find this out, whether they were able to affect specific areas in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, where you would not have been receiving off of whoever your vendor might have been, Trump versus Clinton, during the waning days of the election, but instead, ‘Clinton is sick’, or ‘Clinton is taking money from whoever for some source’ … fake news.
“An outside foreign adversary effectively sought to hi-jack the most critical democratic process, the election of a President, and in that process, decided to favour one candidate over another.”
The key states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania which Mr Warner named all fell narrowly - and unexpectedly - to Donald Trump.
Article here. Just to clarify - this particular brand of fake news doesn’t actually just affect ‘stupid’ Trump voters. The stuff they’re talking about is what I saw being picked up and distributed by lefties and libertarians who also hated Clinton. So the left did fall for fake news ...as long as it was about Clinton.
So basically everyone is terrible, because no one was willing to admit that we had a qualified female candidate running. They preferred to distribute fake news that demonized her. And it led to one of the most incompetent and corrupt presidents we’ve ever have. But hey! At least he has a penis.
