So Thursday at the White House Trump invited a bunch of right-wing social media trolls – guys like James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, Bill Mitchell, who promotes QAnon on his radio show and Ali Alexander, who recently attempted to smear Sen. Kamala Harris by saying she was not black enough – and other conservative think tanks like the Heritage Foundation.
“The crap you think of is unbelievable,” Trump told them. “With amazing creativity and determination, you are bypassing the corrupt establishment, and it is corrupt. And you’re bypassing the very, very corrupt media.”
This is Trump legitimizing the roles of over-the-edge folks like O’Keefe, Mitchell and Veritas for the future, likely for the 2016 campaign. Fake news has become real for the Trump admin.
