THE GORILLA CHANNEL – “WE FIGHT, YOU ENJOY” – Yesterday, a satirical Twitter account Pixelated Boat published a fake excerpt from Michael Wolff’s book about Donald Trump:
Wow, this extract from Wolff’s book is a shocking insight into Trump’s mind: pic.twitter.com/1ZecclggSa

It was hilarious and it was so stupid that people would surely know it was a joke.
Well, except, as Ben Shapiro reports, a lot of people, including some high profile Trump haters, actually fell for it.
And even those who didn’t, like “The Daily Beast”‘s senior news editor, insisted on making a point of it:
While The Gorilla Channel is unfortunately fiction, here's a very real thing: a 1997 New Yorker excerpt where Trump turns off the movie Michael so he could put on Bloodsport, then makes Don Jr. or Eric fastforward so it was only fight scenes.https://t.co/fgI0SjIkxJ pic.twitter.com/gpBaj8BLfZ

I will await a stunning expose about how once, when watching a porn movie, Trump fast forwarded to all the sex scenes.
Next: “Gorillas in the Mist”
