Hillary Clinton made her first public speech since her concession speech following the election. She spoke at a ceremony for the retiring Nevada Senator Harry Reid.
She spoke on some of Reid’s qualities, but then decided to attack “fake news”.
The Democrats have been focused on what they are calling “Fake news” since Hillary lost the election. Now Hillary is on board.
During her speech, she is referencing a shooting at Comet Pizza in Washington DC, fueled by false information found online.
It seems she is also referencing her election where many of her supporters say she lost the election because of fake news stories that were spread on social media.
Apparently she is forgetting the fact that she has been marred in scandals and FBI investigations during her entire campaign. Hillary lost the election because of Hillary, not due of “fake news”. Hillary lost because of the facts.
She mentions a bill that is moving through Congress with bipartisanship support to limit and stop “fake news” websites. Ironically many of the targeted websites are mostly right leaning sites.
Democrats are hoping to push through the legislation and have it signed into law by president Obama before Trump takes office on January 20th.
