    Frankly “FAKE NEWS” seems more applicable to the person who constantly uses the phrase being a “FAKE” than the media who are constantly being acussed of publishing news that the “faker” does'nt want to hear or read!!

    Every morning that I wake, I feel like I am living Groundhog Day, the political version. Now I know what Argentines felt like with Kirchner.

    How about:
    - FAKE corrupt president? Or maybe:
    - Fake Corrupt Democracy? [In Brazil, this may not be a news]

    The word of the Year in English should be NorthAMOland.

    Most fitting nAMO, I mean nAME.

    Travel Warning on the US will apparently be issued by the Argentine ministry after the last disastrous 30 days there, 100 dead in three mass shootings and a terrorist attack, and that is not counting all the average mass shootings with “only” 3 to 5 dead.

    Wake up NorthAmoans.
