Ratings and Reviews
Truth finding App
Before I post anything political, I fact check it first. This app has made it so simple to sort truth from lies, without having to search multiple sites. I love that the reputable fact checking organizations that I use, are conveniently accessible through this app.
Another Trump basher
Typical news stream that doesn’t like Trump. Negative negative negative to read and attempting to down play ANY successes of the President’s accomplishments. Just another avenue to keep the American people in disapproval and angry. Delete or don’t download and just watch CNN for your “news” coverage and highly OPINIONATED presentation of what they want the people to hear. They talk of cherry picking for his successes when those that oppose him are the professionals at doing that.
Oh, shut up Trumpies!
Here’s a clue for all you right-wing sheep. Just because you don’t like something the media reports doesn’t mean it’s fake. Unless it comes from Fox News. If ignorance is bliss, you righties must be very happy.
