After the debates the #Trumpwon hashtag appears on Twitter. Originating from Russia. Update: Oops.
I would not be surprised if some future Trump advertisement just features him and Vladimir hanging out at Mar-a-Lago playing pool and talking about how much they both hate reporters and fact checkers.
Update: Okay so it was bound to happen eventually, but it looks like I fell for a false story about this tweet.
According to the Washington Post, the tweet did not originate in Russia.
Of course that does nothing to minimize the fact that Russia has hacked data and released it to benefit Donald Trump, and that Putin and he seem to be butt buddies, but this one story at least seems to be false.
