Tabloids

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.

~ Henry Louis Mencken (1880-09-12 1956-01-29 age:75)

I went to buy groceries on 2016-11-11. I noticed the tabloids at the checkout. They accused Hillary of every crime imaginable, short of baby-eating. The photoshopped pictures, however, made that too a likely possibility, but what really caught my eye was a claim that Putin had nukes trained on the USA and would launch the very instant Hillary won. If you did not vote Trump you would die.

This claim is obvious nonsense. To prevail in a nuclear war, you must catch your rival by complete surprise. Putin would never telegraph his plans, much less to the National Enquirer.

Now that she is not president, Hillary has some free time. I hope she sues all those low lifes who made up such outrageous lies about her. I am ever surprised how little sense of honour and fair play Trump and his supporters have. They have absolutely no restraint on making up any conceivable lie, not even that it be remotely plausible.
