This really annoys me. I'm scrolling through Facebook with my morning coffee and find a link of John Kelly's speech explaining why Trump said what he said. The clip was about 10 minutes.

Further down the feed were several stories saying that Kelly's speech confirmed how disrespectful Trump was yada, yada, yada showing a 90-second clip -- or worse, just a sentence or two.

With public discussion of fake news people should scrutinize the news they consume, but they don't. What's the phrase? You can lead a horse to water...

What's the solution?

With the previous talk here about alleged Russian collusion with Trump's handlers, this is a relevant question. Even if Russia had been feeding fake news to the American people, ultimately it's the reader's fault for believing nonsense.

Thoughts?

It's "you can lead a whore to culture, but you can't make her think"  or  "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink".

In the case of Kelly, the media PRESUMED how he felt about his son and what Trump said.  Kelly refuted what the media said, but even then, the media is still insisting that they know what Kelly is thinking and that Kelly is lying. 

Meanwhile.. what Trump said about that soldier that died was "he knew what he was getting into.." which is equivalent to saying that "he died in the line of duty".  What is so horrible about saying that?  Would the mother have preferred if her son was killed by friendly fire, or by accident?  No matter what Trump says, it gets shit on by the media.
