“Unpresidented”

At the White House, the activists handed out a fake edition of the Washington Post about the “resigning” of US President Donald Trump.

The material posted on the main page states that the American president left the post, leaving a napkin in the Oval Office with the inscription “Blame Crooked Hillary & Hfior & the Fake News Media”.

The fake newspaper was made almost the same as the original one – the material, the print, and the logo resembled real Washington Post newspaper.

Unknowns have also created a fake newspaper site, posting materials about how Trump’s departure is celebrated in the world.

The editorial staff of the Washington Post said it knew about the materials being distributed, but they had nothing to do with this newspaper.

“We will not tolerate others misrepresenting themselves as The Washington Post, and we are deeply concerned about the confusion it causes among readers,” Post spokeswoman Kris Coratti said. “We are seeking to halt further improper use of our trademarks.”

The Washington Post also reported that the print and digital version of the fake newspaper cost $40,000 ($36,000 was raised from the organization’s mailing list). The activists printed 25,000 copies.

We’re still waiting for POTUS to express his opinion on one more “Trump fake news”.
