It seems the anti-Trump leftists are becoming more and more desperate to find things to hate about the president and his family, resorting to childish and outlandish practices to attempt to troll him on social media.Joy Reid is the latest casualty to try that on Twitter, when she shared an article about his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. The problem was, the source she used was an anime Nazi news site.
As Twitchy reports:If your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so bad that you’re sharing stories from anime Nazi news sites you MIGHT want to take a step back and really think about what you’re doing in social media.
Take Joy Reid for example:

She deleted it, but lets never forget the time Joy Reid shared an article from an anime Nazi news site. pic.twitter.com/XuNtaF7jQ2

Interesting that she shared it with her thousands of followers, taking the info at face value and never questioning the source. Another indication that the media is shooting itself in the foot, over and over again.
Did @CNN investigate where she gets her Twitter material?

One would think — with plentiful examples abounding of journalists and media personalities sticking their foot in their mouths by not first checking sources — Reid would know better than to fall prey to the same.
No, rather than seeking to be accurate about the material being shared across such a large platform, many folks are far more concerned with looking clever to their audience, foregoing facts for the sake of popularity.
As you can see, when that’s the goal above all else, it has a tendency to backfire in the worst way.
