It's terrifying; as many others have said, anything that's negative towards Trump is labelled as fake news. His supporters are highly unlikely to fact check such assertions, thus they remain deluded. A much needed backlash is going to be a long time coming if this phenomena persists. There has to be a way of getting through to these people.....?

I am fast coming to the conclusion that Trump must suffer from some kind of psychosis whereby he is unable to separate imagined events from objective ones. I encountered something similar in an elderly relative with early dementia who would recall entire conversations that never took place and insist that they were real despite no other party having any recollection, then getting angry when the plans we had apparently 'agreed' on did not happen. What had actually happened is that she had imagined the conversation before (which is normal, most people rehearse conversations in their head if they want to convince someone to do something) but then confusing that simulated conversation with something that had actually taken place. So maybe when Trump says he got the biggest electoral college win since Reagan he is remembering an egotistical fantasy of being told that?
I would hate to think this is actually the case with Trump. If it were it would mean we have someone who is senile or mentally psychotic in charge of the nuclear codes of the USA, which is strawberry floating terrifying.
This topic is amazing. Trump being so gotten to and Twitter ranting, the misunderstood usage of Fake News, the way he answers questions, deals with journalists and every day some sort of new chaotic piece of news.
