Show Trump and his followers when he’s tweeting lies

The Washington Post has a new Chrome Extension for fact-checking Trump’s tweets.

Here’s a thought for how to use it to even greater value in exposing his lies.

Screen snip the WaPo fact-checked tweet to “putin” a direct Reply to his false tweet. Include the link above so others know about the Chrome Extension, too.

Twitter tip:
Make a period the first character in the tweet in front of his name in the Reply (or in tweets that start with his name) so more people see it.

Here are a couple of examples….

.@realDonaldTrump, you’re no longer going to get away with tweeting lies. How about holding a press conf instead? https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/now-you-can-fact-check-tr…/

…..or something like…..

.@realDonaldTrump, your days of lying on Twitter are over. Hold a press conf. That’s what real leaders do. https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/now-you-can-fact-check-tr…/

No matter what you think of him as a person or as the president-elect, he shouldn’t get to lie unchallenged.

Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
