From It's Going Down by Kevin Tucker

Fake news is an insanely stupid story.

At the very least, it should be. But after a narcissistic, anthropomorphized internet troll beat out an old school, textbook neo-liberal for the United States presidency, it has become absolutely and begrudgingly unavoidable.
