When Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin agree about fake news

The Washington Post has added the slogan “Democracy dies in darkness” below its online masthead.

Republicans who continue their cult support for Donald Trump, in spite of his un-Constitutional attack on Free Speech, obviously can't hear the duet our second place president is chiming with Russia's Vladimir Putin.

In fact, the duet is channeling the ghost of Adolf Hitler. Hitler called the press "Lügenpresse" (German for “lying press”).

Adolf Hitler controlled the news through Joseph Goebbels. 
In other words, Steve Bannon's evil protégé

Consider the information in a previous post about how Sasha Grey, a popular Russian porn actress, became the victim of fake news (at this link).

Donald Trump's chief (liar) and political strategist, the former editor of alt-right mouthpiece Breitbart News (aka: "barfcart-news") Stephen K. Bannon, severely castigated the press by calling it “the opposition party".

Although most politicians have their selective issues with the free press, the fact is, when Russia's Vladimir Putin agrees with Donald Trump, the duet must give Americans pause for concern.  

Russia has invaded America via the infiltration of the Donald Trump ambitious campaign for political leadership. This can be considered an act of war, if the Republican controlled Congres were brave enough to face up to the facts. 

Moreover, Donald Trump clearly abandoned his obligation to swear allegiance to the United States Constitution's First Amendment. His attack on the news media and the Freedom of Speech Amendment in the Constitution demonstrates an abandon on his failed promise to support America first.

But wait, there's more!

Donald Trump bars New York Times, CNN, Los Angeles Times and Politico from White House press briefing!

Several major American news organisations were barred from a White House press briefing in a an unprecedented move by the Trump administration.

Reporters from the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, CNN, Los Angeles Times and Politico were all refused access to an off-camera press briefing by Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump's press secretary. In other words, t
hey were refused entry to Press Secretary Spicer's West Wing office for the scheduled briefing.

"Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties," said Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times
"We strongly protest the exclusion of The New York Times and the other news organisations. Free media access to a transparent government is obviously of crucial national interest."

Only reporters from selected organisations, which included Breitbart News (aka, "barfcart-news), the One America News Network and The Washington Times - all extremely conservative news organisations - were allowed to hear what Spicer said. Breitbart's (barfcart's) founder, Steve Bannon (who is a failed jrUSN passed over for advancement Navy officer wanna-be) is Mr Trump's chief strategist.

Reporters from Time magazine and The Associated Press chose not to attend the briefing, which is called as a gaggle and is less formal than a televised briefing in the White House press room, in solidarity. 

The television networks NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News all attended.

The White House Correspondents Association said it was "protesting strongly" against the move.

Sarah Sanders, a spokesman for Mr Trump, defended the move by stating the White House "had the pool there so everyone would be represented and get an update from us today".

Bret Baier, chief political anchor at Fox News, tweeted:
"Some at CNN & NYT stood w/FOX News when the Obama admin attacked us & tried 2 exclude us-a WH gaggle should be open to all credentialed orgs "…

Meanwhile: MOSCOW — Russia’s Foreign Ministry got into the fake news business in a splashy way on Wednesday. In fact, a focus meant to highlight articles that Russia considers to be fake news, including The New York Times is now posted on the Foreign Ministry's website.

So, I ask you, dear Republicans, to please consider the consequences of mis-information when Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin clearly agree about the false concept of "fake-news".

Obviously, both of these "fake-leaders" are evil bookends and they must be replaced.
