CNN Asks Whether Trump Can Tell What Is Real And What Is Fake

CNN, currently engaged in a battle to actually ban the term ‘fake news’ because it has become synonymous with it, last night conducted a panel debate on whether the President can ascertain reality at all.

Anderson Cooper suggested that Trump can persuade himself of falsehoods if he doesn’t like certain realities.

Cooper cited the infamous Access Hollywood tape, which CNN says, without verification, that Trump recently suggested may have been doctored.

Cooper noted that it “defies common sense” that Trump would talk about the “Access Hollywood” tape again, of course, there is no actual evidence that he did.

Cooper’s guest, former Clinton adviser David Gergen suggested that Trump may be living in an “alternative reality”:

“The degree to which he may be living occasionally in an alternative reality is very disturbing because it is so important when a president is there, making decisions about war or peace and other very significant decisions,” Gergen said.

“If he’s not quite sure what’s real and what’s not, that has serious implications for the safety and security of the country.” Gergan added.

Gergan further claimed that Trump has previously refuted provable facts.

“He changes his mind about what happens, and he actually starts believing the second version that it becomes a reality to him,” Gergen said.

“I don’t know whether he forgets what the first version was or not, but I think the real issue now is: Does he actually believe that it’s not his voice [in the tape]?” he added.

    I see an entertaining new game show called “Guess if it’s Fake News” in the near future….

    MSM “including cnn” IS FAKE NEWS! WE ALL KNOW IT! Well, those of us paying attention, and NOT living in a leftist echo chamber!

  • Cranford Ducain

    If the MSM had not started producing “fake” news stories in the past, the question would never come up now.

    • arnieus

      It is way over due. Fake news duped “we the people” into all the wars since the revolution.

    “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
    Adolf Hitler

    The Western Mainstream Media motto!

    • arnieus

      Hitler was describing the zionist media in the west vilifying Germany. He was not advocating the practice.

      • FSW

        He was not advocating the practice? So what you are saying is that Hitler never lied? he never lied to Germans about the people car, or how the Reichstag burned to the ground, or how he was in bed with the enemy, or that WWII was just another bankers war on humanity. How about the decade long lie about the Jews he wiped off the face of the earth. No The Nazi’s never lied.

        • arnieus

          I have read your response a couple times and really don’t know where you are coming from. I have read Mien Kampf and listened to all Hitler’s speeches. I is just my opinion but I don’t believe anybody can act that well or that a decorated German soldier wounded multiple times would knowingly be “in bed with the enemy”.

          A banker war? Absolutely. Just like WWI. German people have been a problem for the NWO types since Armenius kicked Rome’s ass out of the territory. Hitler removed zionist communists from power and the “German miracle” was the result. Central bankers at the FED and BOE certainly did not want the world to take notice of the prosperity possible by people freed from predatory banking. As Churchill said (paraphrased) “Hitler will have a war whether he wants it or not.” I know there was financing from the west but greed knows no loyalty.

          The “Left” lies all the time. Bolshevism was an enormous lie. They wouldn’t even use their own names. Our Marxist infested media lies all the time. In 1933 when Hitler came to power the “big lie” exploded in the western media already controlled by the Zionist CFR. Jews declared war on Germany and all their resources eventually lied the US into a war as Patton said, “against the wrong enemy.” That is the “big lie” Hitler referred to.

          I can’t say about the Reichstag. There are opinions on both sides but I tend to doubt all official accounts of that event. However from Hitler’s point of view, that Zionist Jews infested every part of German government, it would be a logical step. Much like I would like to see our congress purged of all blackmailed pedophile thieving traitors. Right and Left.

          Finally I am not sure who you think lied about what.
          “How about the decade long lie about the Jews he wiped off the face of the earth. ”

          For many reasons I don’t believe Hitler ever intended to waste resources exterminating Jews. More “big lie” to justify the carnage of WWII and the ultra-racist Israel. A close friend of mine is an engineer of German stock who is bewildered by the holocaust. I asked him once as an engineer assigned to dispose of 6 million people would his plan be to gas them 30 or 40 at a time in the basement and then lug them up stairs one at a time and put them in little ovens. The look on his face was priceless. The most efficient people in history would not do this. If they wanted to exterminate Jews, none would have survived.

            You’ve been exposed to way to much CoIntelPro or are a half educated troll. I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

          • arnieus

            Nice argument.

          • FSW

            I don’t argue with peps who hold on to their CoIntelPro belief system. It’s a waist of time.
