Politico’s piece on how America is just now moving into a “post-fact era” is something else:

For some reason “if you like your plan you can keep it” comes to mind as something that might have been a “fact” that was filtered to fit a message, culminating in a “Lie of the Year” accolade.
Okay, now do Obama.

The mainstream media’s memory now seems to only go back as far as January 20th, 2017. They’re a little fuzzy on everything that happened before that.
My God, a politician is spinning his message favorably? Bombshell stuff.
Obama never had to do this cuz you clowns did it for him. https://t.co/fni3eD5P04

Just stop. I'll say this is true, but it's true for every single administration. Damn…

I see you're moving into comedy now. Still not funny.

Maybe Politico’s article should have been preceded by a “satire” disclaimer.
