Gruber F. Johnson:
What relevance does Gruber's analysis have to the actual meat and potatoes of the article?

Something rational from Gruber for once.

It's not very much in ad spend. It's crazy how much this story is everywhere given the relative scant details.

The whole term "fake news" didn't even begin to trend until after the election, and the election results didn't depend on this nebulous "fake news".

It's just media narrative.

Does anyone actually believe that there is any reason Trump got elected that isn't:
A) All republicans voted for him
B) All the millennials figured they were "fucking the man" by voting for the outsider

Nobody saw a post on Facefuck and said "oh fuck me, Facefuck said I should vote for Trump, so I guess I will."

Either way...

My congressman, Adam Schiff, certainly believes it.

One wonders if Zuckerberg runs for president in 2020 will Facebook censor anti-Zuck news and promote pro-Zuck stories?

C) The Democrats ran a candidate more atrocious than my stool output after a night of drinking followed by lamb and rice from the Halal cart.

Frankly speaking:
So 100k of russian ad buys can swig an election?

How fucking dumb is this?

Clinton spend some ridiculous amount of money on ads, and that didn't move the needle at all. 100k? Who gives a shit.

Does Gruber realize he's undercutting the Left's baseless Russian conspiracy theory?

Watching Americans fight among themselves over Trump from afar is hilarious.

Continue ripping yourselves apart over this, while the rest of the world moves on.
