Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 09, 2020

On the internet, a letter from Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., dated July 13, 2019, looks legitimate. It has a U.S. Senate letterhead, Cardin's signature and even a small "Printed on Recycled Paper" at the bottom. But it is fake. Cardin never sent the letter, which attempts to portray him as making an exaggerated case for Russian opposition candidate Alexei Navalny to Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.

Nah. It's called fauxrage.

All they need to do is act offended by it. Like when Obama golfs or puts dijon mustard on his hamburger. Then it gets picked up by Faux News and their Fakebook "friends" and then ... profit (for the GOP and Putin, that is).
