Minutes After Attacking ‘Fake News’ CNN, Trump Endorses Fake News Conspiracy Website




President Trump went on a Twitter tirade this Thanksgiving weekend, attacking CNN International as “a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!”

Just 48 minutes after declaring CNN “fake news,” Trump retweeted a link listing all of his “accomplishments” from a website that has promoted multiple conspiracy theories.

“Wow, even I didn’t realize we did so much. Wish the Fake News would report! Thank you,” Trump tweeted with the attached link to the article. The link went offline shortly after his retweet.

The website’s name, MAGAPill.com, is a riff on “red pill,” a term popular with white nationalists and other far-right groups.



As noted by ThinkProgress, MagaPill is active on Gab, a social network favored by white nationalist and banned from the Google app store violating its hate speech policy.

The website, which regularly pushes unhinged conspiracy theories, shared a video from a woman who claims there is a sex tape of Hillary Clinton with an underage girl on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The video was posted just hours before Trump endorsed the website on Twitter.

Last week, MagaPill shared an “interesting flow chart” which combined “false flag terrorism,” “organ harvesting,” “child/human sacrifice,” “weaponize forced vaccination,” “earthquake machines,” into one insane conspiracy theory chart.

In October, the site referred to Lady Gaga as a “spirit cooker,” a conspiracy theory linked to Pizzagate that claims Gaga participates in satanic rituals.



MagaPill has pushed conspiracy theories related to the October mass shooting in Las Vegas, sharing links to conspiracy site InfoWars.

The Inquistr adds:

The MAGAPill website and its Twitter page peddle numerous other conspiracy theories, including the belief that a shadowy “deep state” wants to kill Trump. MAGAPill has also pushed the conspiracy theory that DNC employee Seth Rich was murdered for handing DNC emails over to Wikileaks, and it has alleged that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was responsible for the Russian ads that circulated on social media ahead of the presidential election.
