Gullible Presidential Candidate Falls For Fake News Story and Pays the Price

Democrats are notorious for putting their foot in their mouth and failing to fact check anything before they say it. I honestly think that most of them are so narcissistic that they just assume people will believe whatever they say because of who they are.

This has clearly been demonstrated in the mainstream media's coverage of President Trump, the impeachment inquiry, but now gullible presidential candidate Marianne Williamson all but ended her chances at getting nominated with what she recently said.

A satire news website reported that President Trump pardoned Charles Manson (he's dead) and Williamson believed it and tweeted about how disgusted she was over the act on Twitter:

"There is something deeply sinister about Trump pardoning Charles Manson, even posthumously. Dog whistles of the very worst possible kind…

This is what the fake news story reported:

Just days after pardoning three service members convicted, or accused, of war crimes, Donald Trump has issued a posthumous pardon to the convicted cult leader, Charles Manson, who died in prison in 2017.

Asked why he would pardon one of the most hated criminals in American history, Trump replied, “I always thought Charlie got a bum rap. He never killed anyone. It was his followers who committed the crimes.”

Some are speculating this latest pardon is just another one of Trump’s outrageous acts meant to distract the American public from the ongoing impeachment proceedings. Others believe it is a setup to the much-anticipated pardon of his good friend and self-proclaimed “dirty trickster,” Roger Stone.

Said an anonymous source, “If you look at the piddling crimes he was convicted of … obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering, it will make Roger’s pardon less odious in comparison.”

Fighting back against his detractors, Trump added he has every right to issue pardons.

“The Constitution, and William Barr, give me the right to do whatever I want,” declared a resolute Trump.

Williamson later deleted the tweet after learning that it was a satire article. She apologized as well, but the damage was already done. She ruined any remaining credibility she had when she posted that. The internet is very unforgiving.
