That awkward moment when you fall for a hoax, and realize you are suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Seems the many Trump haters in the mainstream media are willing to listen to – and believe – anything negative anyone has to say about the 45th president.
Several of them fell for a hoax report on a White House document purporting to show a list of some outrageous demands made by President Donald Trump of his Israeli hosts.
The document appeared on a joke Twitter account, @RogueSNRadvisor, which pretends to originate from a “rogue” senior adviser to the president….
The list on the Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor included:
• Trump’s demand of roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. (Yes, some in the MSM actually believed his demand of a “metric ton”).
• The demand that microwaves remain unplugged, a mocking reference to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway’s comment that the appliance could be used for spying.
• The request for 2016 electoral maps to be posted on the walls, alluding to Trump’s alleged tendency to play up his victory.
The Jerusalem Post’s Anna Ahronheim saw and believed the story was legitimate and tweeted it. Soon after, journalists from The Washington Post, NBC News, Business Insider, the Nation, and Mother Jones shared Ahronheim’s tweet….
