.@ianbremmer now admits that he MADE UP “a completely ludicrous quote,” attributing it to me. This is what’s going on in the age of Fake News. People think they can say anything and get away with it. Really, the libel laws should be changed to hold Fake News Media accountable!

And even though he just made it up, it still would be a challenge to sue him because of Trump being a public figure.
Over the weekend, journalist Ian Bremmer pushed a fake Trump quote that (of course) went viral. People like Ana Navarro and endless media talking heads were pushing this quote like it was real because that’s what our good friends in the media do.
Create horrible news about the president and then spread it like wildfire, true or not.
Trump himself called Bremmer out by name early this morning.
