When you are stopped in traffic, looking around, this particular license plate is guaranteed to grab your attention.
During an event for the campaign on Tuesday in New Hampshire, a follower of the MAGA movement presented former President Donald Trump with a one-of-a-kind gift.
At the 76th Lilac Luncheon hosted by the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women, the front-runner for the Republican nomination gave a speech when he was surprised by a lady who gave him a vanity license plate.
The phrase “F8KNEWS” was engraved on a personalized license plate for the state of New Hampshire. This was an apparent reference to the term utilized by the Republican heavyweight to disparage the corporate establishment media.
Trump proudly displayed the present while his followers cheered and applauded.
They started chanting, “Fake news!” over and over again.
After it was first used by the left to disparage alternatives to the corporate media, Trump himself had a significant role in popularizing the phrase as it is currently
Used. It is a disparagement of left-wing legacy news agencies in print and television.
Left-wing censorship groups would eventually switch to the use of the phrases “disinformation” and “misinformation” rather than “fake news” because the term was a dog whistle for establishments such as the New York Times and CNN.
Trump attacked media figures like Jim Acosta, who notably was an irritant to Trump even before his inauguration in 2017.
Acosta, who is invisible during the Biden administration, with nothing negative to say about the current President, takes offense to the term. (His inability to be hostile toward a Democrat vindicates Trump’s assessment of the corporate media.)
With the 2024 election looming and Trump a frontrunner, look for Acosta to appear out of the shadows to go up against his former nemesis.
Expect Acosta to emerge from the shadows to compete against his former adversary in the 2024 election.
Despite indictments, Trump is now the leading candidate for the Republican nomination, if not the general election. Many polls have him beating Biden in a head-to-head match-up.
