Trump's inauguration celebration was hardly a $100 million dollar blow out. Just drummers and D.J.s and so forth.

However it seems that the inauguration paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the Trump's Washington hotel, for the month leading up to it and for some time afterwards as well.

Pro Publica, Never head of them.


"Propublica - Media Bias/Fact Check


https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/propublica/
LEFT-CENTER BIAS. These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes"

Nuff said!

How do you know they are "facts"?

Do you blindly believe EVER article you read from EVERY source available today?

Did you KNOW they have a known bias?

Did YOU do any research to confirm the claimed "facts"?

The media has a LOWER approval rating then even Congress, and HAS had for decades, for very GOOD reasons.

If it is written it is fact to some

If its written to target a bias reader its elevated to a "documented fact"
