THERE is no post on the Hill's site or twitter stating RBG has died. We've been trolled!

THat LBN thread links to a 404 error site! The poster has been tombstoned.

I hate that we were trolled but I am just grateful that RBG is with us!

***Let's turn this into a gratitude thread instead for the wonderful Ruth Bader Ginsburg! ***

Typical reichwinger: the troll thought that we would just accept the news without verifying. Idjit didn't know that that is precisely what their side does, not ours.

I checked the story out - 404 at the Hill link, no other outlet had it on Google, nothing at all on Twitter.

Once I was ready to vote, when I did so, the message said I wasn't serving on a jury.

Quick work, MIRT!

40. I immediately posted this as soon as I'd confirmed and saw the poster was indeed a troll.

All I saw was the LBN thread, as I immediately posted after confirming this was bogus and MIRT stepped in almost immediately to ban him. In reality, this was halted as quickly as I think possible.

Those who posted in that original LBN post were really expressing a kneejerk shock, which is quite normal.

The troll did create a fairly believable scenario and it is not out of the question that someone on Capitol Hill would find out quickly, particularly given the attitudes of the RW.

54. There was NOTHING on google except her travel to a speech in Ohio. I know this because I literally

did the search as soon as the LBN post appeared (and you can prove this, since I was the first respondent).

Another poster suggests that a chyron on Fox had it, but I'm not sure he is really saying he saw it or not.

I think there is a lot of fable-creating going on now. It is hard to believe we were targeted for trolling, but it has happened before as any long-term poster knows.
