Terrifying, if true. But a rudimentary search <a href=”http://www.snopes.com/did-donald-trump-appoint-sarah-palin-as-a-science-advisor/”>tells us it’s false</a>.</p> <p>The clue was the site it was reported on — which I can’t find at the moment as I now can’t locate the post where I saw it (bloody Facebook). Not that I would have linked to it, but I might have given its name. People need to look at the sites they’re reading and evaluate them for credibility. But apparently that’s hard.</p> fake newslinkpalinpoliticstrunphttps://devilgate.org/blog/2017/01/04/trump-not-appointing-palin-as-scientific-advisor/Wed, 04 Jan 2017 08:06:08 GMT
