    And then when you take the time to share them, they ALWAYS either say it is fake news, a biased source, or just don't read them.

    So what's the point?

    I'm not trying to make this a flame thread, but this really is true. Then if you tell them to quit being lazy and find their own links, they just call you a liar. I honestly think that 99.9% of Trump supporters have become so blinded by tribalism they can no longer think for themselves and use reasoning skills, or they know how flawed Trump really is, and would rather just troll than have a discussion.

    So what's the point of providing links in discussions anymore? It's a waste of time.

    No, what they are telling YOU is YOU are a waste of time. Links to Salon don't count as real.
    CNN or MSNBC ARE bullshit as well. TRY posting REAL news from REAL sites.

    Maybe use Al-Jazeera or the BBC to support your opinion or maybe not use sources that were from political spin doctors that tell you their opinion on the subject.

    Now before you lecture me please note the two sources I mentioned and realize my information does come from liberal sites and not Fox News...

    I form my opinion based on their reporting and my own personal experiences...

    I've used sources from outside the country like the Daily Mail, and it still doesn't matter. I've also use Breitbart and Fox News at times... and it STILL doesn't matter.

    And... that's why many times I tell them to do their OWN Google search and find a link to a site THEY will read and trust. Yet they never do, and instead just call you a liar.

    That's the point.

    What are some examples of "real" news and "real" sites?

    It is a dishonest ploy by them that 'appears' legit. It is a bait and switch. Ignore them.

    Right. Evidence isn't accepted. You're dealing with their belief system, not a critical faculty.

    That is a partisan hack problem. Not a trump supporter problem.
    Way to keep the hackery alive :113:
