It amazes me how some of you dodge (or are unable to comprehend) the obvious and create story lines to suit your agenda. I don't need lessons on how the Russians use social media, but once AGAIN, I will pose the very simple question:

And the idiot holding the sign impacted our election in what way?

One dumb millennial? swayed by social media is holding a sign saying ‘Happy 55th Birthday Dear Boss.' in front of the White House. The "boss" being a Russian.

Go back and read the story Baja posted and anyone with an IQ of 50 or more will get the picture. Now, once again, please explain how that one guy holding a sign impacted the election? Smarty pants Baja simply can't answer the question. It's his posted story:

Techno—For the past several election cycles, social media and particularly Facebook, have been the most cost-effective way of advertising to targeted voters. Before I ran a campaign, I had no idea how or why a Facebook “like” had an economic value sufficient to drive advertising revenues. But it helps fine tune the targeting. My campaign was an effort to reach about 40,000 voters in Berkeley, without enough money to send them all a letter. Facebook reached some of them for about 1/100 the cost of a letter. The Trump campaign relied heavily on social media, accounting for a substantial part of their effectiveness.

The Russian trolls, and their oligarch masters who knew Trump, knew the value of a Facebook “like” better than us old farts. That’s why they did what they did. Their efforts resulted in about 140 million messages exposed to their targets. If you don’t think that had any effect you are either a fool or a Trumpist diehard. You can’t have it both ways—that Trump ran an effective campaign, for less money than Clinton, because of their Facebook ads—and then turn around and ignore the Russian trolls who did the same.

You also can’t ignore all the evidence of quid-pro-quo. Discussions of relaxing sanctions, during the campaign, by the same people. Relaxation of penalties on Deutsche Bank—the only outfit that would loan the bankruptcy-prone crime family money. Multiple reports show that worth at least hundreds of millions. Staffing of the campaign with multiple people who opposed sanctions and wanted to do oil deals with Russian government and oligarchs.



And it all started years before Trump, but nobody seemed to care ? DID THEY? The Russians hated Hillary, guess why? Because she attempted to meddle in their elections. Pay backs a bitch.

Lets not forget Obama openly trying to effect the elections in Israel, and he wasn't even trolling.

Oh, Johnny did it again, Was the word you were searching for "affect?"

Because you can't say anything good about Trump, and the overwhelming evidence he is batshit crazy and his campaign worked with the Russians, promising them relief from sanctions, you echo the desperate tweets and talking points of Trump and Breitbart. So sad, so silly.

again the story brings up the point that is from people that have a clue, and it is as obvious as can be if one has a brain. It really shows how stupid right wingers are. You are the card carrying meber of the low level thinkers as trump labeled right wingers who then vote for him....

remember the interview trump did where he said he would win as a republican because of how stupid they are.

And mac won't dispute this beyond acting like a spelling teacher.
Typical.

You mean you guys like another criminal strong man? What a surprise.

It's not spelling, it is understanding the difference between affect and effect. Clearly something has affected NW. Perhaps a failure to pay attention in school?
