Donald Trump | The Guardian: Fake news is ‘very real’ word of the year for 2017

Donald Trumps apocryphal invention, which dates back to the noughties, takes title in dictionarys annual reckoning of the most-used new expressions

Fake news has acquired a certain legitimacy after being named word of the year by Collins, following what the dictionary called its ubiquitous presence over the last 12 months.

Collins Dictionarys lexicographers, who monitor the 4.5bn-word Collins corpus, said that usage of the term had increased by 365% since 2016. The phrase, often capitalised, is frequently a feature of Donald Trumps rhetoric; in the last few days alone he has tweeted of how the Fake News is working overtime in relation to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential elections, and of how Fake News [is] weak!

Palmer Report: Corey Lewandowski correctly predicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates arrests. Now hes naming two more people.

Six weeks ago, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski mentioned four fellow Trump advisers by name while making the argument that anyone who is guilty of conspiring with Russia should go to prison. This week, two of the four were arrested. It raised the question of whether Lewandowski knew something specific that he wasn’t letting on. Now he’s once again mentioning the other two advisers by name.

Here’s what Lewandowski said in September: “I think if anybody, and Ive said this, if Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, or Rick Gates or Carter Page, or anybody else attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. election through any means thats inappropriate through collusion, coordination, or cooperation I hope they go to jail for the rest of their lives.” (link) Everyone knew Manafort would likely be arrested eventually, but few saw the Gates arrest coming. Was this just a lucky guess, or did Lewandowski see and hear enough within the campaign to know who would end up going down first? On Wednesday, he expanded on his assertions.

After USA Today and the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had implicated Corey Lewandowski as part of his formal confession, Lewandowski appeared on Meet The Press and angrily and almost apoplectically denied having had any involvement with Russia. He once again named Roger Stone and Carter Page while asserting that anyone who conspired with Russia should be held legally accountable, without offering any evidence against either of them.

So here’s the question: if Corey Lewandowski was right about the Manafort and Gates arrests, at a time when no one saw the Gates arrest coming, does this mean that Roger Stone and Carter Page are also about to be arrested? In other words, is Lewandowski just listing off the people he doesn’t personally like, or does he truly know something we don’t?

The post Corey Lewandowski correctly predicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates arrests. Now he’s naming two more people. appeared first on Palmer Report.
