John Oliver Takes on the Actual Fake News That Donald Trump Likes: Infowars
(Things get a little NSFW above, btw.)
Despite negative public sentiment, the media seems to have never been more in control of things—not always necessarily through guiding public opinion, but through guiding the opinions of a very impressionable president with an extremely questionable media diet. As much as Donald Trump loves to shout, “Fake news,” in the face of everyone he disagrees with, he’s kind of into the actual fake news.
That includes Alex Jones and his show, Infowars, the conspiracy theories he spreads, and probably some moist towelettes that make for some NSFW imagery if you watch the video above, so … be warned. Even the products that Jones pushes to keep the rest of his nonsense afloat aren’t what they claim to be, so we can kind of see where Trump may feel a bit of kinship.
