Mel and Trumpy’s “fake news” defense

In the United States, just about anytime someone refers to a news article or an historical reference that paints Donald Trump in a bad light, the typical response from Trump and his supporters is “fake news!” In Honduras, when anyone cites a news article or an historical reference that demonstrates that Manuel Zelaya was much less than he and his supporters like to tout, they instinctively shout “fake news!” Zelaya and those who worship him remind me very much of Trump and those who bow down to him. They can simply say or do no wrong. And it’s odd because the politics of these two guys appear to be polar opposites. What they share in common is that both are sociopaths, narcissists, misogynists. They are both, first and foremost, in love with themselves and the macho, man-of-the-people savior image they’ve managed to conjure and sell to the public.
