The legitimately fake news tabloid The Globe is demonstrating the next stage of Trump and his cronies’ attempts to disgrace former President Barack Obama—using fake news.
Their recent headline yells “Malia Obama QUESTIONED IN FBI PROBE!” and calls the completely fabricated scandal “Barack & Michelle’s WORST NIGHTMARE.”
The actual story is rather straightforward. Malia was an intern at the Weinstein Company and the FBI is currently investigating Harvey Weinstein—so there is a very small remote nearly nonexistent chance that the lawyers “want to” ask her questions if there is a lawsuit brought against the company.
But the American Media news rag decided to jump to a possibility that will never happen.
American Media’s CEO David J. Pecker is a dedicated Trump ally, and has been using the Globe, as well as the National Enquirer, to smear Trump’s opponents. Under Pecker’s direction, are now the print side of the pro-Trump world. According to a former employee at the Enquirer, “David thought Donald walked on water.”
And Trump is very fond of Pecker. He let him use his private plane to fly to Florida. In fact, according to an insider, “Donald treated David like a little puppy. Donald liked being flattered, and David thought Donald was the king. Both have similar management styles, similar attitudes, starting with absolute superiority over anybody else.”
During the 2016 campaign, American Media was one of just two media outlets that endorsed Trump. The other belonged to Trump’s son-in-law Jarod Kushner.
And Trump seems to believe the lies coming out of American Media. The Enquirer ran the story of Ted Cruz’s father contributing to John F. Kennedy’s assassination, which Trump for some reason promoted.
But now they are going after children. The Pro-Trump media just gets more disgusting.
