This is making the rounds on Twitter at the moment. It’s not something he said. Granted he says many absurd things, but this isn’t one of them. It was part of a satire article by Andy Borowitz.
Neither is this:
People magazine has done an extensive search of their archives and so have other people. It just doesn’t exist.
You would think, with so much obvious and real fodder for outrage, that people would stick to the reality, but no. That’s not how humans work.
I’ve watched 3 Presidential elections unfold on twitter. And I can say that people are just as happy to be outraged over false information as accurate information. As long as it’s about the other guy, they are willing to fall headlong into the pitch of anger. Without pause.
I dislike being fooled. And I guess I’m weird because I dislike it most when it’s the people on my side. I don’t want to be misled. It presumes I’m an idiot. And I own very few qualities I find worthy and my ability to think is one of them. So when someone tries to juice me with bad info assuming I’m not going to check because I agree with them politically, it pisses me off.
