Default Damned Fake News!

An Instagram post dated October 12, 2020 claims that Donald Trump died
from Covid-19. This is false; the US president appeared on an NBC town
hall on October 15.

"Due to Covid-19, President Donald Trump Passes Away at 74," says the
post, which is made to appear as if it came from the official CNN
Twitter account.

But a search of CNN’s Twitter account did not reveal any such tweet,
and Trump appeared in the NBC town hall days after the claim appeared
online.

Damn! You just can't trust the news anymore.

210,000+ Americans will never recover from the incompetence of Donald
Trump.
