It looks like the gig is up! White House staffers and even members of President Trump’s cabinet seemed to have been slipping him fake news!
Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has warned everyone to stop giving the President fake news stories. One, in particular, I am shaking my head K.T. McFarland who also serves as Deputy National Security Advisor. She gave President Trump articles about a coming ice age from a 1977 Time Magazine article and another how to survive global warming. What are you thinking K.T.?
Does McFarland believe in that global weather hocus pocus? Why would you give that to Trump? What’s your end agenda? No wonder they were talking removing her from that position.

President Trump, who rants about “fake news,” got some from a White House staffer, according to a report on Monday.
Deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland gave the president print outs of two Time magazine covers — one from 1977 that warned of a coming ice age and one from 2008 about how to survive global warming — that got Trump worked up about media hypocrisy, Politico reported, citing White House officials.
But the 1977 Time cover was part of a hoax that had been circulating on the Internet for years, the report said.
Staffers discovered the mistake before Trump was able to tweet or talk about it, the report said.
The incident also led White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus to warn staffers not to secretly slip information to Trump in an effort to manage the paperwork the president gets so he doesn’t go off on unexpected tangents and to conform to record-keeping laws.
McFarland did not respond to requests for comment from Politico, but another White House aide defended it as an honest error that was “fake but accurate.”
I am very surprised at McFarland. I thought she was on our side and to learn this…just wow! Priebus told the staff to watch themselves, but there are still leaks. Some people just can’t keep their mouths shut.
There’s going to have to major consequences and repercussions given to those who want to go rogue. What do you think? Share your voices in our comment section and let us know what you think.
