Interesting one today.
Bear in mind, this happened in the U.K, a place where Donald Trump is not President; can never be President, and no one votes for him.
I went back to Liverpool, to visit an old lady of 89 years. An old, great friend of the family.
In conversation, the current unrest in the U S came up. I mentioned about the situation in Seattle and the defacing of statues. It went like this:-
Me: "Yes its a bad situation, the President has offered them help, but the local politicians are allowing it to go on"
Friend: "Well that Trump is to blame for it all. He caused it"
Me: "What did he do? How did he cause anything?"
Friend: "He had that man killed"
Me: " What man?"
Friend: "You know, the black fella, in Minni something. Trump told the police to kill him. Then it started all the riots. He's a racist znd he hates blacks"
Me: " How do you know that? What makes you think that?"
Friend: " It was on the news. They said he instigated it all"
Me: " Which news were you watching?"
Friend: " NC something....."
Friend: " Yes....CNN and they are American so they know what Trump is like. Horrible man.....I hope they don't vote him in"
This lady has never been politcal at any point in her long life, and yet this is the impression she has of President Trump from watching CNN.
I tried to fill in a few blanks and make a more balanced case, but she would have none of it. The news said Trump is bad and he's a racist who killed that poor man.
How global is the reach of these lying propaganda organisations.
What can we do about it?
