31748741123_4874f2e4d0_z

Some “actual” facts … just for fun!

Today’s “reality” check:

Donald Trump thinks Frederick Douglass is still alive.

A new academic article compares the speeches of Sean Spicer, Steve Bannon … and Joseph Goebbels and finds them scarily similar.

Supreme Court nominees like Neil Gorsuch are what you get if you don’t vote or cast a protest vote.

The presence of Trump’s sons at the Gorsuch announcement are further proof that there will be no separation between government and Trump’s business interests.

European leaders are scared about what’s going to happen in America.

Reuters has announced it will be covering the Trump presidency “like any other authoritarian.”

Senate Republicans are changing the rules as they go to push through Trump nominees, who are either unqualified or who have serious conflicts of interest, in order to keep Democrats from having any role in “advise and consent” process.

Enjoy our new reality.

This is the first in an occasional series of actual facts (not alternate facts) about POTUS 45
