We first discuss fake news. The mainstream media is on a tear as they accuse social media of being a cesspool of fake news. But is that true? Is social media any worse than the mainstream media?
Our invited guest today is Tim Danahey of the Tim Danahey Show. We discuss reasons for Trump’s electoral college victory. To be clear, it is necessary to specifically point out that Trump had an electoral college victory, not an election win. This is important because he won without a mandate and as such must not be allowed to make changes to President Obama’s policies. Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by more than two million votes.
