Yeah, Trump Got Fooled by a Babylon Bee Article

Read President Trump's and Democratic nominee Joe Biden's plans on immigration

The story tweeted by the president early Friday morning was published by The Babylon Bee - which bills itself online as "the world's best satire site" - and stated that Twitter had "shut down its entire social network" Thursday to stop the spread of negative news about Biden. The sourcing of the story has raised questions about it.

The 74-year-old President of the United States retweeted a satirical article about the recent Twitter outage on Thursday (October 15), which claimed it was a plot in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden.

As of this writing, the tweet was still up, meaning either nobody on Trump's staff is bothering to tell him what's up or everyone knows and they've just decided the engagement is worth it.

One user pointed out that, besides the fact that the story was clearly satire, the mere fact that Trump was able to tweet about a Twitter shutdown while on Twitter made it quite evident that it wasn't real.

Is No Credit Better Than Having Bad Credit?
In fact, that’s the best possible use of credit — engaging it to do something that can help you make money. No Credit The good news about having no credit history is there’s nothing negative about you out there.

The Babylon Bee markets its satire website as "fake news you can trust" and routinely runs outrageous headlines. This includes his really bad interview last night.

It did not take long for the satirical outlet to react to the sudden attention from the commander-in-chief, as it soon penned another story - this time claiming that POTUS had named The Babylon Bee "his most-trusted news source" and the rest of the media "totally fake".

The president could be forgiven for thinking the Babylon Bee's post had some truth to it, however.

"Many people believe the true swing demographic in this election under the age of 30, not because they will be voting for Trump, but because they won't be voting at all", Humphrey said.
