The biggest piece of fake news currently out there is the supposed epidemic of women and minorities being beaten up by empowered alt-right Trump supporter. Almost all of these turn out to be fake.
An openly bisexual Chicago student who claimed she received anti-gay, pro-Donald Trump notes and emails after the election is found to have fabricated the entire story, North Park University said.
Taylor Volk told a local NBC News affiliate that she found one of the notes taped to her door at her off-campus residence, which read “Back to hell” and “#Trump” along with homophobic slurs.
“This is a countrywide epidemic all of a sudden,” she said on Nov. 14. “I just want them to stop.”
The university investigated the alleged harassment and determined this week that Ms. Volk had fabricated the story.
President Obama sat down for a post-election interview earlier this month with Rolling Stone‘s Jann Wenner, reflecting on Donald Trump‘s win and what Democrats did wrong.
