Well I don't disagree with that, but that's not my point in the first place. News outlets or "fake news" outlets are putting out stories about Trump because they know it'll get under his skin. He reacts to it every time, and that's at the end of the day what people are hungry for.

How many more times will the word "unprecedented" be used in regard to a US President in the next 4 years?

I'm going with 1,836.

Sarah Palin is masturbating to all of this BTW.

The has always been fake news, Trump did start that. However the media took it to a whole other level with cover ups for numerous Arkancides.

I had the impression that Obama fueled the fire by not to showing his birth certificate. On Feb. 10th 2007 he announced running for presidency, June 3rd 2008 became the Demo nominee, won the election and was inaugurated on Jan 20 2009. It was only till April 11th of 2011 his BC was posted online. So much for his promise of transparency. He stoked that fire by not being forthright

I'm pretty sure this had more to do with the spark of controversy and conspiracy over his birth certificate because of his middle name. Presidents technically do not have to show their birth certificate upon taking office. But Obama was the wild card because of his background and name. Hardly fueling the fire.

As for fake news I gotta say it's pretty dangerous to have some government official decide what cuts the mustard as real news
While I agree it's a problem I don't think it can be solved or even should be solved through legislation

I wonder how many times it will actually matter. I'm going with 50% unprecedented for a reason and 50% media stink.
