Trump Has Bizarre Meltdown Over News Of Russian Propaganda Ads On Facebook


Following the news of the Russian-bought Facebook ads during the 2016 campaign which sought to create division while elevating Donald Trump, the former reality show star lashed out on Twitter. Russian-linked accounts had purchased $100,000 worth of advertising associated with 3,000 ads on the behemoth site. It’s still not clear whether there are more ads linked to the ‘troll farm’ known to spread propaganda to be discovered.

Trump appears to be in panic mode over the revelations.

‘Facebook was always anti-Trump,” he tweeted. “The Networks were always anti-Trump hence, Fake News, @nytimes(apologized) & @WaPo were anti-Trump. Collusion?”

“But the people were Pro-Trump!” he continued. “Virtually no President has accomplished what we have accomplished in the first 9 months-and economy roaring.”

Trump is still taking credit for President Barack Obama’s economy. As for his accomplishments, there has been no major legislation passed. The only thing that has happened under his watch is Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. That’s about it.

Jim Acosta reports that Trump is “embarrassed and pissed” that Luther Strange lost last night and eels outdone by Steve Bannon, who backed Roy Moore. Trump is blaming Mitch McConnell for the loss.

That might be what has Trump on edge this morning. That, coupled with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russia collusion, leaving almost everyone at the White House lawyered up, while he lashes out at Facebook.

President Obama personally spoke with Mark Zuckerberg after the election in order to get him to take the misinformation campaign seriously but apparently, that fell on deaf ears at the time.
