You do get that this is why people don't take Trump supporters seriously? They whinge about what they call fake news, which often isn't, and then repeatedly post/point to/cite completely fabricated propaganda, pretending it's genuine and get all giddy when they find some almost accurate fact in their otherwise completely fictitious information.

Don't worry, I'm not offended in the least. Disappointed, maybe, but certainly not offended.

who's offended here? We're just flabbergasted by the stupidity that falls for photoshops like that. How do you expect people to take your message seriously when you need to fake images for the sake of it?

no you're right. I can't stand when people deliberately attempt to mislead people to suit a political agenda. I also can't stand when people are unable to use critical thinking skills to understand if something is fake or not.

What I'm really wondering is which of those two camps you fall into.

Hummmm don't see any Russian pin flag on Trump...oh only left leaning non funny comedians. [icon_lol2.gif]

It was a cartoon, not meant to represent an actual event. It was not an attempt to con gullible people into thinking that Trump wore that pin. Unlike that pathetic photoshop job pretending that Obama had given Weinstein a medal.

And “the right” can’t truth.

Who cares if “the left” can’t be as bothered to make up childish macro images and bad photoshops.

I see “the right’s” also still hijacking artist’s work for their “memes” as seen by your use of Pepe the frog

Actually, neither side can. We've seen numerous cases of blatant alt left and alt right lies posted here. What I find funny is that one side thinks they are superior to the other.

Lol! You mean a right wing agenda. When it comes to misleading people to suit a leftist agenda, the alt left posters here seem to be not only supportive, but full of sheer ebullience when presented with an opportunity to mislead. This pertains to everything from spinning blatant hypocrisy of Dr Seuss hating librarians, to supporting the annual waste of hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on the man made climate change myth, to defending indefensible "alternative energy" scams like solar and wind, to defending the constant stupidity of our current brainless PM.

It never ends with constant spin and misleading information being posted here by dull witted leftist partisan puppies, all to suit a backward leftist political agenda.
