Fox News ran a story on Oct. 8 about a decorated Vietnam War Navy SEAL and glass artist who created an enormous presidential glass seal he hoped to give to President Trump. On Thursday, 11 days later, the network retracted the story after being told the Trump supporter never served in the SEALs or in Vietnam, much less earned commendations for his service. ... The man's claimed record turned out to be a fabrication.

Two weeks ago, President Donald Trump spent his Saturday morning warring with the NFL and NBA superstar Steph Curry via Twitter. Today, Trump has his 140 characters set on late-night hosts. In an early morning tweet, Trump wrote, "Late Night host [sic] are dealing with the Democrats for their very 'unfunny' & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?" In a second tweet, Trump claimed, "More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?"

The Trump administration is rolling back the Obama-era requirement that employer-provided health insurance policies cover birth control methods at no cost to women. ... "It is a huge loophole for any employer that does not want to provide birth control coverage to their employees," says Dania Palanker, a professor at Georgetown University's Center on Health Insurance Reform. ... The American Civil Liberties Union sued the Trump Administration within hours of the rule being published, claiming it violated the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause, which ensures that all people receive equal protection under the law. "The Trump Administration is forcing women to pay for their boss's religious beliefs," said ACLU senior staff attorney Brigitte Amiri, in a statement.


The subreddit likes to think of itself as the last remaining bastion of reason and discussion, not poisoned by a liberal agenda. Given this self-regard, no matter how laughable, it's surprising that they so quickly engage in doublethink and groupthink. In the hours after the Las Vegas shooting, in which over 50 people were killed and 500 injured, members of The_Donald speculated that the shooter was an Islamist terrorist. With no evidence, they began to speculate that the attack was religiously motivated, with an anti-west agenda, and began saying the attack justified Trump's policies hostile to refugees and Muslims.
