How the 2016 election, russian trolling, ruined all news for a friend.

She used to vote democratic, but starting hating Obama, presumably over the ACA. She went all in for trump, and bought into all the nasty postings about Hillary, the Clintons, hating "politically correct" people, etc.

She's no dummy. I'm sure the last three years have opened her eyes to the insanity coming from the WH and trump's friends and family. But she accepts no news. Not from network tv, cable tv, anyone. She's totally cynical about independent journalists, too. Everything is fake.

I can't imagine how she plans on making a decision about the next election. I hope she stays home.

1. She cannot have been paying attention if she's voted for drump.

Did she know the ACA was the same as Obamacare?

3. Yes, but she was upset over

her son having to buy into expensive health insurance. I suspect her son fed her lots of trump macho BS.

2. She'll probably vote Trump again

A majority of people usually can’t bring themselves to admit being wrong so they will vote for the incumbent. If she really thinks all news is fake, then she’s right in the wheelhouse to be an all in MAGA voter.
