‘Swanald Trump’ Attacks Fake News [VIDEO]

A viral video showing a “trumpeter” swan attacking a sign reading, “Caution Swan is Aggressive” has Redditors nicknaming the waterfowl “Swanald Trump.” The sign? Fake news, of course.

The video was originally shared in the subreddit titled “Animals Being Jerks.”

Last month, at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), President Donald Trump accused the “fake news” media of making up sources and calling it the “enemy of the people.” He later used the phrase in the following tweet.

“I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name… Let their name be put out there. Let their name be put out,” Trump told the crowd. However, Trump too has cited “secret sources” when discussing policy, reports MSNBC.

The above video of a swan references Trump’s attack on alleged fake news.

Swans are notoriously vicious, but mostly for territorial reasons, reports the BBC. Swan related deaths have occurred: in April 2012, Anthony Hensley, 37, of Des Plaines, Illinois, was attacked and killed by two swans while he was kayaking for work. Hensley worked for a company that used swans and dogs to keep geese away from properties, reports the Huffington Post. Hensley was forced out of his kayak by the swans and was unable to swim back to shore due to the weight of his work boots and heavy clothing.

Even the video is fake. The sign was sprayed with something that made the bird want to eat it. Notice the stain on the side of the poorly installed ‘sign’, made of a material that would not tear?

Nothing is real on the internet anymore, and too many people are fools to believe this really happened.
