Weeks ago, I was happy for one of the members in Facebook for being honored at some event for her successes in business, her community service … her “ethics, and … being a person of character.” She had posted this, and I had no reason to doubt that it was true.
Yesterday, while browsing the news feed, I saw a post about President Trump on her timeline. I didn’t believe the headlines … but, I read the article, anyway. Low and behold … the headlines said one thing … and the actual article from The Hill said the complete opposite.
This is the perfect example of why I ask people … no … I implore … people to please read the entire article before commenting or going away with a misconception of the truth.
What really surprised me, in this case, was that it was brought to this person’s attention (giving her the benefit of the doubt and keeping her honesty intact.” She didn’t take it down, in respect for the truth. Instead … she left the post up, and said she still stands by her hateful comments. Point taken … out of sheer hate for our President … she will be complicit in the lies being pushed, thus helping to increase the divisiveness in the country.
I’ve included screen shots of the posts and comments, to back up this post. I have also the link to the article from The Hill. What were they thinking?
When you wonder how this country became so divided and can’t understand why people hate this President so much … just spend a day in Facebook. Take some time to read and check-out the articles … understand that most of what is being posted are deliberate lies to discredit our President and others. Then … take one more step … call out the fake news for what it is. Let’s stop rewarding the fake news for their … “creativity” and, start demanding that truth prevail, with a side of … real … “integrity and character.”
Thank you for reading my blog, today. If you like the vibe … please subscribe!
