The National Enquirer, once just a goofy nonsensical tabloid now a raging pro-Trump propoganda machine has a headline saying:
TRUMP PASSED POLYGRAPH PROVING NO RUSSIA COLLUSION!
That seemed like a potential interesting story! And here’s what USAToday says:
But the Enquirer makes it clear it is firmly in Trump’s corner with its world exclusive blockbuster: “Trump Passed Polygraph Proving No Russia Collusion!”
The gist: The tabloid says a Florida lie detection expert named Michael Sylvestre, at its request, analyzed a recording of a press conference Trump gave in December in which he proclaimed there was no collusion between his campaign and the Russians, declaring, “That has been proven.”
Sylvestre, the tabloid says, “subjected those very words to the keen and unbiased judgment of the world-renowned DecepTech Voice Stress Analysis Machine.”
The machine, and Sylvestre, in the past have found that Hillary Clinton, former FBI director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch have fibbed bigly.
The verdict on Trump: “HUGE” anger — but no dishonesty.” Sylvestre tells the magazine that Trump “was being truthful” when discussing the collusion question.
“I believe he was angry and not deceptive when he spoke about the millions of dollars the investigation has spent,” Sylvestre concludes.
Case, presmuably, closed.
On the other hand, the Enquirer assures us that Brad Pitt’s college fraternity brothers are “Still on Team Aniston!”
Nice shade, USAToday.
